Oh come on Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Communism, Capitalism, Socialism, Fascism, Tribalism and any other "ism" you care to throw in there has expanded through military force hell I am pretty sure that if Pacifism thought it could expand through war we would be tripping over militant pacifists as well.
The only thing a nuclear device will safeguard is the existing regime in Iran and that will only last as long as they don't use it.
