Where are you going with this question?As far as Sharia is concern, I have no need for those useless Islamic rules, but I ask you is Iran’s Sharia rule as bad as some of United States allies in the region?
That the Iranian Sharia Rule is not as bad as Pakistani Sharia Rule? And since Pakistan has a nuclear deterrent Iran should also be allowed one?
Surely you don’t believe this? Comparing track records isn’t relative to the issue.
I have no problem acknowledging that the US behaves duplicity. I’ll concede that so long as you’re willing to concede that the same rings true for every major power from time immemorial. The Romans, the Greeks, the British Empire, the French, the Russians, the Chinese all of them today behave no differently. No state or government that has come before can claim any different. That’s realpolitik. Life’s not fair. Never has been.
We’re not happy or okay with the Pakistani situation. Just because we’re so called allies in WoT doesn’t mean we’re okay with their proliferating nuclear weapons.
The answer to that question is no. The US doesn’t want ANYONE proliferating nuclear weapons. It doesn’t matter if they’re an ally or not. It’s not in anyone’s interests.About nuclear weapons is concerned: How are those related to each other. Do you really think, if the Shah of Iran was geopolitically against the United States, and had he tried to acquire WMD, they (US) would have let him have them based on the fact that Iran was secular and there was no Sharia and Mullah had no power?? …
How the issues are related to each other Xerxes is that the fear of nuclear proliferation is magnified with countries that practice Sharia Law. If this is the type of abuse a state is willing to inflict on their own populace what might they be willing do to a foreign populace?
Sharia Law is reminiscent of the Spanish Inquisition. It’s outright barbaric.
Xerxes I think other WAB members understand history has a way of repeating itself and it’s Déjà vu all over again with regards to Iran. The Iranian issue is spiraling downwards and it’s frustrating to us in the west and patience is running thin. Ultimately we’d like to see the Iranian people do something about the situation rather than have our hand forced.
