Can someone explain to me the thinking behind how nuking Iran shows them that using nuclear technology for weapons is wrong?

President Bush according to Seymour Hersh isn't afraid of nuclear confrontation.

Hersh in the New Yorker:

A government consultant with close ties to the civilian leadership in the Pentagon said that Bush was “absolutely convinced that Iran is going to get the bomb” if it is not stopped. He said that the President believes that he must do “what no Democrat or Republican, if elected in the future, would have the courage to do,” and “that saving Iran is going to be his legacy.”

This type of logic always escapes me. Kind of like to punish those who kill somebody we kill them. I guess this type of circular logic doesn't bother others.

This Iran thing periodically has me stressed out to no end?

I hate seeing our country flush itself down the toilet with all of this unwarranted aggression.

I know it's something we've had a long history of (Trail of Tears, slavery, wars, etc.), but I keep on hoping we'll figure it out sooner or later.

Saving Iran is going to be his legacy now? I hope that works for him, because all the legacy's that he set out during his 2000 camapaign haven't stuck. He's failed at: making health insurance affordable to hard-working, low income families; establishing the "Healthy Communities Innovation Fund"; ensuring that the US complies with all environmental laws; fully funding the Pell grant program; providing support for child welfare; fully funding the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program; "restor(ing) confidence in government by...return(ing) civility to the judicial nomination process"; attacking pork barrel spending; "by far the vast majority of my tax cuts go to the bottom end of the spectrum" - 2/15/00; paying the dept down to a historically low level; and locking away the Social Security surplus for only Social Security. That's just for domestic issues!
