"Will intervention be inevitable...
by reconeil

...should Iran field a nuclear weapon" is pretty-much a moot point.

If such were to occur, whom could or would intervene?

Just how exactly would anyone intervene militarily?

By nutty nuking Iran & starting a nuclear war to:"Save lives"?

Besides, if not even North Korea was ever intervened with,

why so differently pick on Iran, anyway?

Is Iran more a Threat to World Peace than North Korea?
