Is it right for the West to threaten Iran over its development of nuclear resources?

Why should the West feel it has the right to tell Iran that it cannot develop its nuclear technology?

Who are we to prevent another country from developing? Even if they were to develop nuclear weapons (they are many years away from being able), why should they not, when so many other countries equally as headstrong have them and use them to threaten and bully other countries?

Does the West have any right to tell other nations how they should develop, or threaten them with sanctions if they don't agree to become a clone? (After all, it is not as though our countries offer perfect justice, freedom, or an absense of greed and corruption.)
