The sooner Iran makes nukes the better. This EMP threat is very serious and cannot be ignored.
Iran is stupid by saying we will never make nukes and ICBM...even India has admit it's nukes are things which kept it secure.
also countries like america View a EMP attack in the same manner as a nuclear attack, so if Iran uses EMP on america then america will use nukes on Iran.
This Iranian strategy to say we will never build nukes has failed, they must be mentally retarded if they think it has been a success, look at how much sanctions we are under, how much more can they put on us? it is impossible for them to totally isolate Iran since we have worlds largest reserve of Hydrocarbon.
But if Iran says that they have nuclear weapons openly,
Sanctions can me much harder. Even these sanctions are hitting Irans economy hard. But they give Iran also big chances to strenghten their own companies and support their own production and scientists. I think Iran should drive Israels nuclear weapon strategy......alll have to know that Iran have the bomb but there should be no official statement. And after a while they should leave the NPT.
Or If I would be in Iranian Gouverment I would say: "One more sanction and we will leave the NPT and throw all IAEA guys out"
But the only problem of this strategy is that iran will destroy all bridges....so the only solution for west will be a military strike and this is somethink what nobody wants.
Iran have a brilliant strategy. If they close all borders and all ways..... the red line of war will be very very close and we should know that Iran have huge Industrial and development projects wich they wnat to realize. We cant expect that even is Iran wins a war....that all the industrial projects......wich are giving work to people....and scientific programs , oil sector , south Pars gas field and and and.....willl not be hit. War means that iran will may win it but there is so much to loose and most of actual projects will be cancelled for maybe 10 years.
And the whole region will be in fire and iranian women and children will die and American women will be save in its continent. So who wins at the end?
US Military Industry will produce more weapons and make more money and they dont have to be scared that their weapon factories will be bombed like Iran.
They will rebuild Saudi Arabia and other Arab States at the Persian Gulf and they will make the big money at the end. Its the same story after WW2 with the so called Marshall plan....to rebuild Germany with American credit!
