What To Do About The Dangerous And Imminent Threat Of Iran?

Like Harry Reid said, Iran is a festering sore, and the US needs to patch up ties with Israel by using the nuclear option on Iran. The US also needs to seek a new round of sanctions against Iran.
To this end, according to VP Joe Biden,Israel agrees to wait for these new round of sanctions before attacking Iran. Let's hope they won't have to apologize for embarrassing Joe Biden again.
But wait a sec here, is Iran actually doing anything wrong? Both the US and Israel have threatened to attack Iran, while Iran has done nothing of the sort. I mean, I know that Secretary Of Defense Robert Gates has claimed Iran was sending fighters and weapons to the Afghanistan, but even US Commander Gen. Stanley McChrystal has stated there's no proof to back up that claim. So what is the reason behind the Obama administration's call for nuclear option against Iran? Iran actually poses no threat to it's neighbors, Europe, or the US. And, more importantly, why is the Obama administration acting and sounding exactly like the Bush administration?

I think our fixation on Iran has to do with that psychological stigma of "doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result each time."

Our whole "problem" with Iran started almost 60 years ago when we engineered a coup which overthrew Iran's elected leader. That whole thing worked out so well for us, it's time to do it again.

Yep, and we even have the son of the Shah over here, waiting to sit on that throne, waiting to continue his daddy's grand tradition of torture. But that's okay, he's one of our torturers.
