I don't believe in the gun-to-the-head kind of balance that "Each country has the right to nuclear weapons" means, if it is stability we're looking for, then nuclear disarmament should be the answer as the realistic possibility of dying from a nuclear war any moment doesn't really ease nerves and oil friction between countries.

But if you are saying Iran should have a Nuclear program because other countries have it then I firmly believe your reasoning is faulty because not every country is politically equal and I don't believe that right now Iran has the stability to ensure a safe use of such a huge power. It may be true that Iran holds much more safety than it's surrounding neighbors but we still have to remember how the Arab spring came into being, the Middle East is still a powder keg by comparison to other regions of the world.

Now I don't necessarily believe it's right that for example France, The US and Russia have a number of nuclear warheads on their soil but their power system in politics is much more stable, and in the end it all boils down to ensuring world safety, not equal possibility to destroy others.
