What response to Iran's nuclear programme?

Iran regime is playing a big gamble with its nuclear programme. It seeks to acquire nuclear arms to be feared and to use its huge oil reserves to affect the world market. As there is a tendency for renewable sources of energy, its oil will be of less importance, especially when the US manages to reduce its dependence on the oil from the Middle East.

There is only decisive military option that can dissuade Iran intransigent regime from pursuing its nuclear program as both negotiations with promises for huge aid and threat of sanctions failed to bring effective results.

The Iranian regime has no option but to acquire nuclear weapons to defend its ideology and to have more influence in the volatile Middle East. It has no trust even in its people as it rules by religious decrees, stifling any democratic reform through its repressive internal policies.

Iran regime should get rid of its attempts to develop nuclear weapons as it will be the sword on which it will fall after a military strike coupled with severe sanctions, leaving it more vulnerable than it is now.

Hi Abdelilah, I heard the news about someone blowing themselves up in an internet cafe in Casablanca on Sunday night and have posted soemthing about this. What is the view there about this incident?

Hi Bill,
The Casablanca incident is a warning for the Moroccan security to be more vigilant. Terrorist groups are trying to regroup as some are known to have links with the terrorists gruop Al-Qaeda.
The latest attack looks minor, but if no more precautions are taken, terrorist attackers can be more sanguine.

Let's hope they shall never have a repeat of their first major attack that happened on May 16, 2003 claiming more than 40 lives.

Hi Abdelilah,
I remember the 2003 attacks they were terrible. These people are the scourge of the modern world but they will fade into history like all such groups. It is just a pity that there is so much bloodshed before they understand that in the long term they will never beat ordinary decent people. I think all they achieve is to make ordinary people around the world appreciate the horror of such activity and make us all the more detrmined that such people should never gain power.

To Scotland damp,
Thanks for your comment.
I totally agree with you. Terrorists will be defeated by the resolve not to fall prey to their propaganda and to let them take control of our world.
