On PBS NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, IWP Adjunct Professor Henry Sokolski discussed US options for stopping nuclear proliferation to and from North Korea and Iran. The program aired on May 2, 2005. Dr. Sokolski concluded that only regime change would solve the North Korean proliferation issue, arguing that international pressure still can stop Iran’s nuclear proliferation and weapons program.
“It is thumbing its nose at the sustainability of the NPT, or the nuclear nonproliferation treaty if some action isn’t taken to tighten up the way in which people can leave the treaty with impunity.”
“In the case of Iran, it not only is a matter of them wanting to insist on rights but they would rewrite the treaty to make it possible for all sorts of other nations to come within days of having bombs by making nuclear fuel like they do.”
