The New York Times today has published an Op-Ed piece by Alan Kuperman of University of Texas, in which the author calls for an immediate US air strike against Iranian nuclear facilities. The significance of the article is its publication by the New York Times.
Negotiation to prevent nuclear proliferation is always preferable to military action. But in the face of failed diplomacy, eschewing force is tantamount to appeasement. We have reached the point where air strikes are the only plausible option with any prospect of preventing Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons. Postponing military action merely provides Iran a window to expand, disperse and harden its nuclear facilities against attack. The sooner the United States takes action, the better.
