The article offers a better argument against the Iran nuclear deal. It notes that while the nuclear deal expects Iran to abandon plans to build a nuclear weapon in the long term, it will eventually legitimize Iran as a global economic power that will be capable of buying weapons in the future. It proposes that while the nuclear deal is in effect, Iran should still be treated a pariah state opposed to the interests of Saudi Arabia and Israel.
