Once the Iraq situation have been stabilized, what is the Bush administration going to do to Iran?
That's why I think Iran is pulling out all the stops to acquire nuclear weapons. They have been looking at Pakistan as an example of how a little country can stand up to US and get away with it.
They saw how Pakistan and North Korea use the nuclear weapon card very effectively to make sure that they have some breathing room.
Right now, the mullahs in Iran are hoping to God that they have a workable nuclear bomb. They are very scared as of right now, they are nearly damn surrounded by US forces. There are US forces in Afghanistan and Iraq. Pakistan won't have US forces stationed but will grant landing & fueling rights for US warplanes.
