Oddly, I Don’t Think That This Is the U.S.’s Responsibility

Senior U.S. General Says Iran ‘Very Close’ to Building a Nuclear Bomb, ‘Variety’ of Military Options on the Table (legalinsurrection.com)

Don’t get me wrong. I think it would be a disaster for the world if Iran obtains “the bomb”. But I don’t think the U.S. gets to decide who get the bomb and who doesn’t. If Iran desires it and produce it, then that’s their concern.

Time reported Gen Kenneth McKenzie’s remarks:

Less than a week before world powers resume negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program, the top U.S. commander in the Middle East says his forces stand ready with a potential military option should talks fail.

“Our president said they’re not going to have a nuclear weapon,” General Kenneth McKenzie, commander of U.S. Central Command, tells TIME. “The diplomats are in the lead on this, but Central Command always has a variety of plans that we could execute, if directed.” (…)

“They’re very close this time,” McKenzie says. “I think they like the idea of being able to breakout.”

Moreover, I don’t think that we can prevent them from getting the bomb forever. We should be more concerned with what we’re going to do after that happens, because it’s going to happen.
