I didn't say Iran is more dangerous than Pakistan; It may not be (I'm not an expert). But that horse has left the barn. We can still delay Iran. And delay is a good thing to do.
To tell someone they can't have their very own industrial infrastructure for the production of weapons of mass destruction -- that's a rather odd definition of "belligerence", don't you think?
