    No country starts a war until it does. But perhaps the point you are trying to make is that Iran wants nukes because it is paranoid about being invaded and this is its ultimate insurance policy. After all, the US invaded its neighbors to the west and to the east, rejected its overtures after 9/11 (huge strategic error by the US), and generally feels that the US and Israel have pretty belligerent attitudes toward them, including assassinating their scientists and launching computer attacks on them, not to mention the immense financial pressure they are under. So I quite understand Iranian motivations on this score. I have no great sympathy for the regime but I think I get why they are doing what they are doing.
