Munk Debates; Be it resolved the world cannot tolerate an Iran with nuclear weapons capability.

Over the weekend I saw a debate on Public TV about Iran's nuclear ambitions from Munk Debates.  It was conducted in late December, I think Dec 28th, and I don't recall having heard about it on this website as a link or anything.  Maybe it was and I missed it.

 

Anyway, the question of the debate was;

Be it resolved the world cannot tolerate an Iran with nuclear weapons capability.

As you can see from the debate pre and after results it is close and when people hear the arguments for and against they tend to tolerate Iran rather than go to war to prevent it.  The left numbers (green) are for not tolerating Iran and the right numbers (orange) are for tolerating Iran.

 

There were some interesting points and you can watch and decide for yourself.  All the back and forth we do on this website converge on whether or not there should be a war in Iran or not.  There is no in between.  Many here don't even give the Iranians any credit for doing anything and only refer to them as being ass backward, 1400 years ass back ward, yet the Israeli general himself said Iranians are "very smart" and very capable.  He wasn't talking about any smart Iranians in NASA or anywhere in US or Europe or elsewhere.  He was talking about stinking religious fanatic Iranians who are IRI, IRI oh IRI!

Of course Israel would say Iranians are the smartest people on the planet, and thus, they will be making a bomb within a month! What else do you want them to say? That Iranians have been working on a 1950's, Chernobyl style reactor for the past 20 years and--even with Russia pretty much doing everything---they still haven't been able to make it operational? Or that their air force is a museum of 1960's and 1960's and 70's aircraft? It will go against their propaganda.

You are so obvious AO! All one has to do is mention something positive about Iranians and you jump in to plug your rant! I do not care to engage you on this issue as I know you subscribe to the chicken has one leg methodology!

I subscribe to the "reality," as opposed to false "hendooneh zeer-e baghal gozashtan" theory which has brought Iran where it is today.

Nuclear weapon would be just destabilizing the whole are. I do not care one bit about Israels safety, but Iranians within Iran would also not benefit from a ruler that is not responsible having a weapon like that. IRI would become like North Korea.

I wouldn't like an Iran with nuclear weapons but if the world can tolerate Pakistan with nuclear weapon (which it has) it can tolerate Iran.

You have not mentioned what the green and orange stand for.

Nothing in particular. The audience once voted before the 4 gentlemen debated and then after the debate and closing arguments were made. I suppose green is the before and orange is the after. I'll make the note in the blog itself.

No I mean which one is against and which one is accepting Nuclear IRI and which one is not accepting?

Thanks, now I can think :-). Even the source you linked to was fuzzy.

Yeah, I guess they're using the "borhan kholf" in the question! I just changed the title to perhaps make it clearer. They are saying the world cannot accept an Iran with nuclear weapon, do you agree? Yes would mean or "Pro" means that the world cannot and No or "Con" would mean that it can!
