There are many speculations about the nature of the changes that will take place in the Middle East with all its complexities and challenges. In addition to the questions surrounding the conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, and the self-proclaimed Islamic State, (ISIS) there is one question that should be brought to the forefront as it will undoubtedly change the face of the whole region as we know it: Will Iran develop a nuclear weapon? This of course begs other questions. If Iran does so, would the P5+1 deal truly be able to stop Tehran from mobilization? Would the international community accept the very probable consequence that other regional actors might also acquire such weapons in order to balance power? What positive and negative outcomes should be expected from these changing factors?
It’s not that simple, Obama
If Iran is ever close to acquiring nuclear weapons then we should not be shocked to see many countries in the Middle East equipped with such weapons.Salman Al-Ansari
