We still have to remember that even though their use is in their non-use, they are still weapons with potential for groteque destruction on Bibilical proportions,
The USA, the only government that has used them and who killed thousands of innocent babies, children, men, and women in Japan, know that very well... as well as Japan and the survivors of the cities the USA nuked.
that technically still have the potential for being used, despite the sabre-rattling function in which they currently serve. Ideally, there should be no nukes,
I 100% agree that ideally there should be no nukes.
but the world in which we live in, I only see more proliferation - not less. If other states can acquire them, then, in this international system, which is characterised as an over-arching anarchic one - Iran has every right to acquire them, and to do so with their own interests in mind.
I still see it as Iran following the footsteps of the USA going down into a pit, not pleasing God or trusting in God. However, I understand a little bit better your point of view, though I don't share it.
Peace and God bless you
