Pretty much the argument I've been repeating for years now. Also explains why a nuclear armed Iran wouldn't be the end of the world.

Everybody wants to love and see a new tomorrow. Those unrational enough not to agree with that statement aren't handed over the keys to a nuclear weapon, they are simply weeded into services more to their calling: suicide bombers, not decision makers.
