A rich and prosperous Iran of the 1970s is now an isolated nation. The Islamic Revolution created a mass hysteria amongst the Iranian people against the West through which the Ayatollahs managed to over throw Saha Reza Pahlavi from power and establish their own regime, however failed to bring in cheers to the lives of the people. They have been living with a fundamental belief which they have also enforced upon their people to follow : the doctrine that is 'Anti- West' (mainly anti- America), and 'Anti- Semitism'. The rhetoric often made by the out spoken President of Iran Ahmedinejad to wipe out the Jewish state of Israel from the surface of the earth is condemned by people around the world. Iran's nuclear ambition is basically aimed at manufacturing a N-bomb, contrary to their claim to use the nuclear facility for civilian purpose; such as producing nuclear power, medical treatment etc. Nobody wold accept such arguments, since Iran is a huge reservoir of crude oil and also a major exporter. Besides all western nations are planning to shut down their existing nuclear power stations at a suitable time in future after watching the nuclear catastrophe in Fukushima power plants destroyed with Tsunami waves, which had occurred in 2011. The clouds of war are looming large over Iran. It is in the best interest of the people of Iran, the leadership should abandon the undesirable nuclear programme and concentrate in the development of the country and its economy. The anti-West and anti- Semitism doctrine might be disastrous for the leadership and the nation as a whole which could be a repetition of the events that have happened in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya recently.

 
Iran's obsession with its nuclear programme has almost brought the nation to the brink of disaster. The Islamic Revolution which had created a mass hysteria amongst the Iranian people against the West especially against America accusing them of invading the culture,social life, and dominating over everything in Iran : politics, economy. This the West had been doing through their puppet and a dictator Saha Reza Pahlavi. With the revolution the Ayatollahs succeeded in overthrowing the Saha and establish their own regime, and systematically removed everything American from their soil. However the regime in no way has brought cheers to the lives of the people in that nation even after remaining in power for more than three decades. The major reason being the Ayatollahs who are well known as Islamic fundamentalists still live with an embedded belief that they could change the destiny of their nation antagonising the West (especially America) and pursuing a systematic anti-Semitic campaign.
In the early years after coming to power, the regime publicly hanged thousands of their country men who were accused of supporting the former ruler or pro-American. Later, the nation was  ruined due to a decade long war with neighbour Iraq (supported by America). President Ahmedinejad's argument that their nation has a legitimate right to create  nuclear facilities for civilian purpose  (such as obtaining energy, therapeutic use etc) is weak and unacceptable to the world community since Iran itself is a great reservoir of crude oil and also its economy is based upon crude export. The argument is further weakened especially at a time when western nations are planning to close down their nuclear power plants at the earliest possible time after watching the catastrophe in nuclear power plants in Fukushima affected with Tsunami waves in 2011.
Since Ahmedinejad is quite vocal against the Jewish state of Israel, and has made a promise to wipe it out from the surface of the earth; the President has made it clear to the world that Iran's nuclear programme is only aimed at creating a N-bomb at the earliest with which Iran could flex its arms before its opponents.
If Pakistan has named its N-bomb as the 'Islamic Bomb' (as if it is meant for wiping out the Kafeers (non-believers in Islam) from the human race, when Iran would be able to manufacture a bomb, it might be named as 'Semite Destroyer' or 'Anti-Semitic Bomb', something like that.
It is important for Iran to learn lessons from what has happened recently in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya. While the fate of the leaders who had arrogantly challenged the Western powers for what ever reasons (many of which no doubt are valid), is written over the wall; their nations have been ravaged completely and now to even reach the pre-war stage these countries have to struggle for the next fifty years or even more during which it is the common citizens who are going to bear more with the sufferings; not the elite new-incumbent.
It is therefore in the best interests of Iran, its leaders must work out to find a diplomatic and peaceful solution to solve the current crisis their nation has been facing with.
The clouds of war are looming large over Iran and becoming darker while the nation is trying to buying time to achieve its goal.
A war with Iran is likely to have its effect over the entire region.
Let wisdom prevails in the mind of the Iran's leadership. The western nations and Israel should also show restraint and flexibility in their stand and ease the economic sanctions over Iran through appropriate negotiations.
Death, devastation, humiliation of defeat and later having a dummy/puppet to rule the nation are certainly not what sane people in Iran would desire.
We do not want Iran to pay a heavy price for its undesirable obsession and unrealistic ambition.
