    "Some Muslims" or "some Iranians" would be the equivalent of "some Christians."  Yes, there are some crazies in the Islamic world and there are some crazies in Iran, just as there are some crazies in the Christian world and some crazies in America.  There are crazies in Israel, Russia, and China too, but yet Israel, Russia and China have never bombed a country with nukes.  When the U.S. did bomb Japan with nukes, well, whatever you think of that action, it wasn't fueled by craziness.

    Iranian leaders do not have any interest in being obliterated from the map, any more than American or Russian leaders did during the Cold War.  I wish nukes didn't exist at all, but the fact is, when they do, the whole deterrence because of retaliation thing is actually pretty effective.
