Nuclear proliferation is the distribution of nuclear weapons, nuclear technology and information to states not acknowledged as "Nuclear Weapon States" by the Treaty on the Nonproliferation of Nuclear Weapons. In my opinion when a country develops nuclear weapons everything becomes heightened, the economy, military, and you could even say paranoia is also heighten .With this continuous endeavor for nuclear proliferation countries began to fall int... ... middle of paper ... ...is understandable the attraction that nuclear weapons for those seeking power for manipulation or blackmail. Terrorists may either seize an existing weapon which is extremely difficult to do. Or they could set up a facility to make one. Obtaining nuclear weapons by individuals or groups is doubtful because the materials are difficult to gain and to handle.
However, there have been significant facts and examples showing threats of terrorism infiltrating their nuclear system, and potentially running the government. Corruption has continued to loiter despite Pakistan’s claimed screening and security measures. Also, continued attacks on the stability of government remain active and extremism continues to create a presence outside of the government. The solution to this complex problem should favor the side of U.S. intervention, rather than waiting for Pakistan to take control of the problem. Pakistan had proven incapable in solving their nuclear weapons issues and has instead created a situation detrimental to the peace of the world and in particular the safely of the United States and their allies.

Nothing would get done because the one country desperately trying to get the nuclear “prize” would undermine the whole idea of the U.N. and peacekeeping. The resentment brought by the lack of the “prize” would cause one of the nuclear “team” to go againist the ideas of the U.N. solely because they no longer have the nuclear weapons. As seen as a tool for peace, even though it is a weapon of mass destruction, the nuclear bomb can exist in the world peaceably.
After the Cold War, Americans have all too often lived from the fear of getting bombed with nuclear weapons.

The Government is not only concerned about the development of nuclear weapons in North Korea, but also wants to limit Pyongyang's (nuclear power station) capacity to export missile and nuclear technology to other states (BBC). The United States are doing that so that if North Korea decides to attack anyone, they will not have enough firepower to do any major damage to any country. After all of these reasons, I strongly believe that the United States and its allies should go into North Korea and confiscate its nuclear weapons.

By keeping nuclear weapons, a nuclear war is more likely to happen.
Rhodes did well briefly describing what took place after the Cold War and how the U.S.S.R. was broken up into many different countries. Rhodes also discussed the strained relationships with North Korea and Iran, and more importantly, he went into detail concerning terrorism which is the number one threat in the world when it comes to nuclear weapons (641). Therefore, history has proven to us that cooperation amongst certain countries, in regards to monitoring their nuclear programs and securing the deadly material that nuclear weapons are made of, is impossible and that they cannot be trusted. Iran has a nuclear program that is very devious to say the least, and therefore is a huge risk to everyone. Experts say that their nuclear program has expanded into a mature operation and has the capability to produce nuclear warheads in less than a year (Jahn).
Many countries don’t want to give up their biggest weapon and who could blame them. Some countries need that weapon as a way of defense against an aggressive nation. Since the only true solution to nuclear weapons will not realistically happen in today’s world, I think that we should attempt to make the best of the situation and if we are going to use them we should use them fairly. Therefore, I offer a counter solution. Instead of ridding ourselves of nuclear weapons we should use them to our advantage.
Iran is being seen as advancing its nuclear power and this is seen as a security threat by major world powers and has resulted in security dilemma in USA. Thus USA is left with no choice but to use pragmatic and broader based approaches to try and contain Iran nuclear advancements. This is why USA is lobbying UN controlled agency IAEA. However, this has strained the fragile relations between these two countries as Iran has accused IAEA of being used by USA to spread its propaganda.

JD2 Logical Fallacies In this editorial from the Citizen-times, we are considering some issues about Iran and their uranium enrichment program. The foreign minister of Iran said that it would be against the ‘ways of Islamic thinking’ to produce weapons of mass destruction. Well, it should be against anyone’s ways of thinking to produce weapons of mass destruction. There are only a few reasons to make uranium, and most of them have to do with the making of explosives and types of weapons that create havoc and mayhem. So I’d have to say that one of the logical fallacies in this passage has to do with the foreign minister of Iran tiring to get us to believe that just because it’s ’against Islamic ways of thinking’, I’d have to say he needs to give us a little more information than that.
If Iran were to secure themselves with nuclear arms, in such a region as the Middle East, it is believed that a domino effect would come into play. The United States suspects that Iran’s regional opponents such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Israel and many others in the Middle East will feel need to level out their playing field– in effect, beginning a nuclear arms race such as the one... ... middle of paper ... ...n has also agreed to comply and disclose all necessary information with the International Atomic Energy Agency. To appease the Iranian government, in return, the European Union (EU-3) and the Obama Administration have agreed to suspend sanctions on Iranian petrochemical exports, as well as the sales of gold and other precious metals. It was also agreed that Iran, during this six-month period, could not be burdened with nuclear sanctions from both the EU-3 & the American government. After various discussions, debates, and meetings of powers to curtail Iran’s nuclear initiatives, the Geneva Interim Accord comes as a great surprise to many.
