I don’t think Iran has a fully functional nuclear weapon yet, or at least not one that they are able to deliver to the United States. If they did, I believe they would have already found a way to strike the U.S. — the Great Satan — by giving it to a terrorist and being able to deny any knowledge of it in the aftermath of the radioactive fallout.
Whatever America does, at some point in the future, Iran will not hesitate whenever they decide to deliver a murderous strike on our shores. No one should forget that former Iranian President Ahmadinejad once warned that some 70,000 Revolutionary Guard were living in the U.S. as sleeper agents prepared to do their worse, ready to conduct widespread terror if ever called upon by him or the Ayatollah. The unfolding chaos would be worth the risk, as it would smoke these domestic enemies from hiding, with their deaths being the final results and hopefully with few of our own dying.
