Yea, too bad it's bit more complicated than that. Beside treaties Iran signed, waiving their right to nuclear weapons, imagine what would happen if they get them. Saudi Arabia is already publicly considering getting them as well. Next is Turkey, then Syria. Then what? Imagine Balkan in the 1990s if everyone had nukes.
