MAKE IRAN AN OFFER IT CAN'T REFUSE
By Dan Badger
To ask whether a nuclear-armed Iran is better or worse than a military action is like asking whether it's better to walk or hitch-hike into town when there's a free public bus stop 50 feet down the road. Why would you choose between two lousy options when a terrific one is also available?In the case of Iran's nuclear program, the terrific option is for Israel to offer to make the Middle East a "nuclear-free zone" if Iran agrees to do likewise. This would require Israel to dismantle and destroy its existing nuclear weapons as well as its uranium enrichment plants, and Iran to dismantle and destroy its uranium enrichment plants.
