    Why force Iran to go Nuclear when there’s a peaceful option?

    MEDIUM - Let’s start by stating the obvious. The world does not need more nuclear powers beyond the far too many it already has — China, France, India, Israel, North Korea, Pakistan, Russia, the United States and the United Kingdom. The Middle East does not need other countries — Iran, Egypt, Turkey or Saudi Arabia — acquiring such destructive weapons; if one of these countries goes nuclear, it is likely that the others will follow, increasing the likelihood of a nuclear disaster that could destroy the entire Middle East and much that is beyond.
