#1 See also FREEREPUBLIC > IRAN BUILDING POWERFUL NUCLEAR DEVICE, allegedly more powerful than WW2's "Fatman" + "Little Boy".
OWG "CALIPHATE" Aside, many ordinary Muslims also believe that the powerful JudeoChristian US-West does not take them seriously as regional or international competitors in their own right, to the point of actually belittling or laughing at Islam, Muslims, + the Islamic/Muslim World - IMO, AMONG OTHER AMBITIOUS IRAN HAS UNILATERALLY TAKEN UPON ITSELF TO DO WHAT THE SUNNI SAUDIS, ETAL. HAVE HISTORICALLY FAILED OR REFUSED TO DO WHICH IS TO ESTABLISH A DE FACTO ISLAMIC MILPOL = NUCLEAR GLOBAL SUPERPOWER PAR OR SUPERIOR TO THE US-WEST, NOT JUST A REGIONAL OR INTERNATIONAL POWER ["Great" Power].
The only question is whether the Global Jihad [Nuclear?] will attack + destroy "post-US" wannabe Rising China before it attacks + destroys the US-West.

#3 Ala the "Japan/Egypt" nuke model, Iran is hoping that its dev of NucWeaps-related proficiencies that can poten threaten its neighbors in the near-term will result in indirect diplomatic pressure on the GCC, etc. to demand the formal withdrawal of any + all US, NATO-EU forces from the Gulf region.
In the interim, Iran will not stop its NucProgs or its support of Shia rights widin the GCC group of nations.
