The president of Iran has told that the country would use the nuclear weapons and cause destructions if any one ventures to attack Iran.This is clearly indicating his reference to USA. Do you think nuclear war is imminent ? If so who may the first to use nuclear weapons in the forthcoming war ?

I had not heard that they had admitted openly to anyone that they were making nuclear weapons. What i read was that they said that if the US attected that their interests around the world would pay the price. This sounds like a threat of terrorism more than an open nuclear war. Most likely Israel will be the country to take out their nuclear sites since their president threatened them by saying they should be wiped from the face of the Earth. The US would more than likely just take out their airforce if their planes tried to attack Israel to retaliate.

I am not sure if you watch TV but they gave a tour around their uranium plants and it was all televised.

A nuclear Iran is a very worrying prospect for the west and Israel. I think Israel may be forced to make a pre-emptive strike. The insane president of Iran has made his hostility to Israel very clear.

When the nuclear weapons made ready for the use, it is imminent that the world is going to finish the identity of earth. So the question of who uses it first not raised at a later date. Because there is no one to record it. Let us all encourage the manufacture of nuclear weapons, So that every one in fear of the weapon kept readily for use but no one get initiative to use. Here two negatives makes one positive for us. It's essential to encourage these kind of weapons for the safety of earth and us. What do think Bhatji?

Oh yes sadly I see it happening, but as to who I don't know. When I was a teen it was thought the Germans would, now it could be number of countries from Korea to Iran.

I would guess it'll be some minor country which if they do will then be annihilated by the USA amongst much public outcry. might just as well be Iran. They all just want to be left alone and since the only way to keep the USA at bay seems to be having nuclear power then everyone is doing their best to get it. Even Tony Blair mentioned that they should get 5 more submarines with nuclear warheads on them. Whatever happened to the nuclear disarmament we'd all agreed some years back? Everyone is going back to nuclear when the main danger is in just 20 years humans on the planet will have duplicated and global warming will go three times as fast. In 40 years the double number will become five times and then the world will be a very different place from what it is now.

according to me science is something that has provided many things to us.science do hav some disadvantages but it depends upon us how we see it.using science for destructional purposes is something ridiculous.n i m against that science which leads to war.here nuclear weapons serve as science used for destruction.

I don't believe Iran actually has nuclear weapons right now, which is why we have to act quickly. If we wait around and sit on our thumbs until they do, everything will be much worse. If nuclear weapons are used, I think Iran would be the first to use them, since the US has weaponry to take out their nuclear sites, and wouldnt use nukes until Iran did or it was imminent.

I don't even want to think about it! However it does seem to have become a reality that we must face. All we can do is pray for the wisdom of our leaders and the men and women that advise them. Such a war will cause much destruction. I would not venture to point a finger at either nation as both know the consequences of such an action.
