Iran now has successfully enriched uranium. Personally, I think this is going to be an interesting test of our foreign policy, especially since it probably will involve the next administration as well. I think this is a good example of why we need to keep nuclear weapons around here in the U.S. We may want to wish to go back to a world where "soldiers, not scientists" dominated war and thus foreign policy (if we happen to be Douglas MacArthur). But the cat's out of the bag. Once the information is out there, we must keep up. And unfortunately, I don't believe that this Iran situation will be resolved very well diplomatically either. Either we just give up on them and let them become a nuclear power and wait for the inevitable demands, or we do something about it. Maybe once they become a nuclear power we'll get back into MAD mode with them. I'm not sure that'd be entirely a bad thing.
