30 Jul 13. Hoover Institution Press released Taking on Iran: Strength, Diplomacy, and the Iranian Threat by Abraham D. Sofaer. In this book Sofaer charges that the United States, under both Republican and Democratic presidents, has failed to deal effectively with the threat posed to international peace and security by Iran. Iranian misconduct, he writes, has led to the deaths of some one thousand US soldiers, starting with the marine barracks bombing in Lebanon through the killing of US and NATO forces today in Afghanistan. In recounting those incidents, Sofaer points out that the United States has done little or nothing to deter Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) aggression. Given this background, says Sofaer, it is not surprising that the United States has failed to convince Iran to give up acquiring the capacities and fuel needed to develop and deliver nuclear weapons. A nuclear-armed Iran would increase instability in the Middle East, further embolden the IRGC, and lead to nuclear arms proliferation, all with potentially catastrophic results. On the other hand, attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities is also a highly undesirable outcome. An attack for the purpose of preventing Iran from continuing its nuclear and missile programs would–despite the UN Security Council resolutions ordering Iran to stop both programs–be widely regarded as illegal and illegitimate, would likely alienate the Iranian population, and may succeed only in delaying Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons. It is crucially important, therefore, that Iran be convinced to give up its illegal programs, thereby sparing the United States or its allies the task of choosing between the two undesirable options of attacking Iran’s nuclear program or attempting to contain a nuclear-armed Iran. But the United States currently lacks both the credibility and the negotiating policies necessary to secure that outcome. (Source: Yahoo!/BUSINESS WIRE)
