The article discusses the consequences of nuclear proliferation on the geopolitical landscape and how that may effect U.S. President Barack Obama's ultimate decision regarding how to contain Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program. The author argues that while the use of military force against Iran may seem to be the stronger option, the best hope to prevent nuclear disaster may reside not with the U.S. but with the Iranian people themselves through their attempts at promoting democracy in Iran.
