Iran's Nuclear Program

June 26, 2004

Given the instability in its neighborhood, Iran's nuclear program is a serious threat to world peace. To cancel the program, more persuasion than your June 22 editorial suggested may be needed. First, the Bush administration should declare to a nervous world community -- and an even more nervous Iran -- that Iran is not on a short hit list as part of the "axis of evil." Second, we should encourage Israel, with its robust nuclear bomb program, to adopt a "no-first-strike" policy. The risk of doing nothing is borne by all parties; therefore, adversaries must be willing to step back from the precipice together.
