Fareed Zakaria on CNN had an interesting round table about Iran. Two people were for reform and the other person was for attacking Iran. I found all of them intelligent and they gave their case equally well. What really intrigued me was what Zakaria recommended: maybe we should get used to a nuclear Iran, but with extreme caution. It surprised me, but his argument makes a lot of sense: if we attack Iran, most of the Arab world would support Iran, and because the War on Terror is already costly and unpopular, we can’t do Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan all at the same time. The only solution would be to be there for a long time, which won’t work, or to bring in a draft. Yikes! At the same time, this will only delay Iran from getting the nuclear weapon by only a few years; it won’t stop them from getting it. Thus, allowing them to get the nuclear weapon might be a better option, but with caution. You can check it here and here.
