WHICH IS WHAT THE CONSEQUENCE FOR TRYIN G TO OBTAIN THEM SHOULD BE:

On Tape: Bolton Backs Israeli Nuke Strike On Iran? (Nick Baumann, 10/16/09, Mother Jones)

During a little-noticed speech at the University of Chicago on Tuesday, John Bolton suggested a way to resolve the controversy over Iran's nuclear program: Israel should launch a nuclear attack on Iran. Speaking to the University Republicans and the Chicago Friends of Israel, Bolton, George W. Bush's hawkish ambassador to the United Nations, said, "Unless Israel is prepared to use nuclear weapons against Iran’s program, Iran will have nuclear weapons in the very near future." Bolton has repeatedly declared that Iran's nuclear program is unacceptable. Given that he holds this position, his contention that the only way to prevent a nuclear Iran is with a nuclear attack appears to be a backdoor endorsement of just such a strike.

Since states want them for their talismanic value not their military, it's only appropriate that we nuke them.
