Iran wanted higher oil prices and they got them.

Re: Iran fired cruise missiles in attack on Saudi oil facility: Senior US off...

In terms of a country's determination to develop a nuclear arsenal, there seems to be no way to circumvent any country's efforts to develop itself in that manner. There would be no way to stop Iran from developing its nuclear arsenal without the use of force, but there is no way to justify attacking on those grounds when other countries have successfully developed their nuclear arsenal without resistance. Attacking simply on the grounds of fear would create a dangerous ripple effect and set a global precedent that makes preemptive strikes from fear alone justifiable. Yes, while its a scary thought of what could happen if Iran has nuclear weapons, that fear wouldn't justify a preemptive based solely on that. The only to way implicate and act against Iran for its nuclear development would be for the UN to designate Hezbollah as a terror group. If that happens, all of Hezbollah's affiliates would inherit that same status including Iran. In that case Iran would be done for as a nation and its threat to mid-east peace would effectively end.

The way Iran has been acting in terms of its aggression towards Saudi Arabia and Israel, Iran actually ends up as a result working against itself, because now any action against Iran doesn't have to revolve around the nuclear aspect, but simply around its hostility to the existence of globally recognized nation states like Israel, which would in itself give justification for a military response against Iran, which would then provide an avenue for that same military response to also go ahead and stop its nuclear development.
