    None of them, actually.

    Both Iran and North Korea are countries surrounded by enemies and with little to gain by attacking anyone.

    These countries want nuclear weapons mainly as "self defence weapon", as acordning to the MAD doctrine; If someone attacks them, they are risking a nuclear counterattack.

    Iran might, or might not, try to develop a nuclear weapon; Two of its hereditary enemies, Pakistan and Israel, already has nuclear weapons, so they would have a pretty good excuse.

    North Korea has the bomb, but no way of using it without being annihilated by the US or even China.

    I'm quite sure WW III will have both Iran and North Korea cheering from the sideline.

    Iran without a doubt. North Korea can be controlled by China but Iran can't be controlled by any other nation. Also Iran is run by religious fanatics and that is always a dangerous situation.

  • Illegal immigrants from all over! These countries have their soldiers stationed in the USA and until and unless we get our borders under control and these illegal immigrants removed and/or incarcerated, we don't need to worry about either Iran or North Korea. Do you know how many illegal immigrants we have from each of these two countries?

    Iran simply because they aren't backing down, they are infesting Iraq and they are terrorizing other countries, not just ours.
