Iran Says US Nuke Documents 'Forged'
Iran, unlike other countries that acquired nuclear weapons such as India, Pakistan, North Korea and yes, Israel, has always stated that they're acquiring this technology for peaceful purposes (I'm not sure I buy into that, but that's certain something debatable and should be handled by the UN). In addition, Iran is a signatory to the NPT, which the others never honored and never signed up to. I suppose that the lesson learned here is that if you sign the NPT and pursue nuclear ambitions then you're considered flouting it, but it's all well if you acquire them clandestinely, thumbing your nose at the World community all along!
I'm a live-and-let-live kind of person. If our interests are ever threatened, then all bets are off. Until then, we should trust, but certainly verify - unfortunately the only way to verify others' intentions in the past few decades has been to shoot first and ask questions later.
