How Do We Safely Shut Down Iran's Entire Nuclear Weapons Program?

Reader comment on item: Minimize Middle East Mistakes

Submitted by Liz Wagner (United States), Dec 8, 2016 at 12:47

Thank you so much for offering these much-needed guidelines for the incoming administration. We can only hope you, or someone as thoughtful as you, has some specific ideas on how we can ensure we get the response we want from Iran, once we deliver the ultimatum you describe here. Does anyone really know how far along they are on the path to nuclear weapons? What kind of destruction will we be looking at in Iran? Is it possible to destroy their nuclear program without murdering millions of Iranians in the process?

Also, if we attack Iran, its partner in crime, North Korea, is likely to spring into action, no? Do we have a plan for that, too? Everything else you discuss here is manageable. We have to do what we have to do. I'm just wondering aloud what we can expect, once we deliver this ultimatum.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I would give the Iranians an ultimatum and, if necessary, do damage to their nuclear infrastructure. If necessary, I'd go back and do it again and again.
