Iran’s nuke dilemma

Iran nuclear weaponsWith international atomic energy officials still dickering with Iran over Iran’s uranium-enrichment program, international relations Professor Augustus Richard Norton, in a Q&A with BU Today, says that given the political realities in the United States it’s going to be difficult to deter the Iranians from what they’re doing.

“If I were advising the president on this topic, I would allow the situation in Iran to continue to unfold, pursue and facilitate the swap of enriched uranium vis-à-vis Turkey, and pursue limited sanctions with a view to targeting Iranian officials rather than the Iranian public in general.”
