As far as Military options are concerned the most direct would be the best. pick a nuclear development site that is as far away from a civian center as possible. Fire a tomahawk on it with a 445 kiloton warhead. The site disapears, with minimal civilian casualties. Then demand unconditional surrender of Iran's nuclear materials to the UN. If they seemed to have joined the nuclear club, then I guess they can receive attention as well as give.
Everybody would be to **** scared to do anything about a weapon like that being used in anger at an obviously military target. It would send a hell of a message, and it would probably kill less people than a conventional air campaign and raids on the ground to physically go in and pull the research apart.
Wow a cogent argument for a nuclear war. I just scared myself.
Somehow I dont think 'cogent' best describes that argument.
It's not an ideal solution, but you can't say an idea isn't cogent just because you happen to disagree with it. We may have reached a point where we have to start giving some consideration to even the more questionable options.
i agree with nuclear proliferation is not good but you forget the reason we have Iran wanting to have nuclear capability because Israel has nuclear weapons

i also think its unlikely any other countries will go nuclear since turkey is a NATO member it ill not and Saudi being a US Allie will not and the others do not have the resources or capability to attempt anything
so it will be Israel-Iran Mutually assured destruction until they negotiate out of it.
To be a tad brutal, that does horribly sound like "we're short of good ideas, so let's pick up a real bad one instead".

But I agree with Existentialfish on one point: that sure would send "one Hell of a message" all right.
