              Appeasement
Iran today announced that it will begin construction of a new heavy water "research reactor". This reactor will be able to produce enough Plutonium for approximately one bomb per year. This move is contrary to the urging of the IAEA, and the EU-3. So what solution do they propose to curb Iran's weapons pursuit?
Separately, the 35 nations on the IAEA's board of governors urged Iran on Thursday to step up cooperation with U.N. inspectors and backed the EU's offer of incentives if Tehran ends all sensitive nuclear work.
It would be a grave mistake for the US to participate in this kind of appeasement. Have we already forgotten the lessons of trying to bribe North Korea? It is a fact that tyrannies rarely stay bribed.
