"We want Iran not to have nuclear weapons precisely because we can't bank on the nature of the regime changing. That's exactly why we don't want to have nuclear weapons. If suddenly Iran transformed itself to Germany or Sweden or France then there would be a different set of conversations about their nuclear infrastructure."


I'm pretty sure that if Iran suddenly turned into Sweden, the different set of conversations that would ensue would no longer be about nuclear infrastructure at all, and would be much more ontological or at least would include some profound social constructivist questions.

Last week saw a bunch of family that I don't see too often, which provided the opportunity for this. A variety of family members sitting around a table eating dessert, I'm rattling on about something or other, and my 9-year-old cousin V interjects (addressing me), "Do you have an off button?"
