Does Iran have the right to nuclear power?
Debate Rounds (3)
Yes, unfortunately today that is the stereotypical view of the conservative Republic.
But that is completely wrong, Iran is extremely advanced in the field of sciences, mathematics and is not the isolated hermit kingdom it is made out to me. Just recently it has become the most recent nation to launch a live monkey into space and return it safely to land. It is a nation of thriving industry and culture and has managed to survive over 30 years of US crippling sanctions. It has signed the NPT and has tried to reassure the world it is only looking to use nuclear power for civilian purposes. But that has not stopped the aggression of America and its main ally Israel. Israel is a country with its own nuclear arsenal and is in its own internal conflict with Palestinians. It has a nuclear power-plant that the world has never been inside and is constant carrying out orders and attacks on nations such as Iran. But to add insult to injury it developed its nuclear weapons WITH APARTHEID SOUTH AFRICA. There is definatly a double standard. So I ask you all today why shouldn't Iran have the right to nuclear power?
I. "Iran, a satanic country made to be known as the corrupt "Satan" of the middle east. It is all desert, but wait don't you mean Iraq?
Yes, unfortunately today that is the stereotypical view of the conservative Republic." It's oh so ironic that you say that since that is one of the most stereotypical things i have ever read.
II. All those things were completed around 60 years ago, that would mean it is years and years behind but not limited to, the United States, France, UK, Russia, China, Israel, India, Germany, Belgium, etc. All of these nations are far more advanced than Iran.
III. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is crazy, plain and simple. The man who preaches death and genocide to an entire race of people and promotes it on live television. He also wants to have a joint nuclear alliance against the United States. Also Israel has a stable government. Not some fascist dictatorship with a crazy prophet
II. Yes because the president prevents a decent life for the population since he takes all the money and puts it into military and nuclear research.
III. "Ahmadinejad abides by Iran's long-standing policy of refusing to recognize Israel as a legitimate state, and wants the Jewish people who immigrated to Israel to return to their "fatherlands". Sounds like he want to get rid of the Jewish people doesn't it? The Quote is from wikipedia.
IV. Israel has a democratic system of electing presidents instead of shoving ballets like Iran. By the way do you think N. Korea is crazy? Well Iran sure doesn't.
Iran spends only around 2.1% of its GDP on military purposes and is ranked 61st in the world in terms of the money it puts into its military (Source http://www.indexmundi.com...).
You also claim much of Iran's GDP is put into the energy sector, but you have forgotten what Iran's main exports are : Oil and Natural Gas. Of course it would spend much of its revenue on creating longer sustainable energy facilities, as they create new jobs and after all oil will not last forever. Iran has an anti-Zionist policy and does not support zionists taking over Palestine; that is a whole new subject on its own terms. Finally, Iran also has a democratic way of electing presidents and yet again you spill false words concerning Iran's democratic system, without any sufficent knowledge about it.
On a sidenote, you bring North Korea into the picture, out of nowhere, but if you wish I will answer: "Do you think N. Korea is crazy?". The answer to that question is not for me to answer, Iran and North Korea have a good freindly relationship and are both cooperating in fields of sciences.
I am afraid your offbeat Islamic sites do not provide facts, simply opinions that random people post. A nation with 50% of the population is in the range of poverty should NOT have nuclear power.
II. North Korea is a closed off nation with concentration camps and mass poverty, just look at some of these statistics.
North Korea has also done Nuclear weapons testing, a really reliable nation Iran is working with huh?
Yet another article proving evidence pointing towards nuclear weapons.
Conclusion: I had refuted all of my opponents points and defended all my own. I see no reason why Iran should have Nuclear weapons, the idea is silly.
