Could Iran become a nuclear threat?

Nuclear weapons have been the source of many conflicts over the past 50 years. Recently, there has been reports that Iran is trying to create their own atomic bombs despite the fact that they do not have the right to do so. Other countries are desperately trying to negotiate with the government and convince them to abandon their program. John Kerry, the United States Secretary of State, is currently discussing with the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in hope of finding a middle ground. Meanwhile, the United States and the European Union are imposing sanctions on the country. Iran has also been accused by Senator John McCain of cheating, arguing that it is not the first time they have tried to deceive the rest of the world. Finally, it is unknown how long the negotiations will last and if they will end without sparking a conflict.
Of course, even if Iran succeeds in creating nuclear weapons, the country would most likely never use them. It would be unwise to risk causing a nuclear war that could potentially destroy our planet. My guess is that those weapons would be used as a leverage but I cannot be sure. The only thing I know is that our best move should be to create a petition asking for the disarmament of those bombs in hope of putting an end to that threat. Maybe then someone would finally listen to the people and stop this madness.
