Obama administration faces nuclear weapons challenge

While Iran’s nuclear capacity remains a problem, the possibility for diplomacy is somewhat thin, as the United States and Iran have had no diplomatic relations for 30 years. Iran’s refusal to stop developing nuclear weapons has put it into a category that former President George W. Bush called the “axis of evil.” President Barack Obama has also condemned Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

Pakistan, North Korea and Russia may also prove to be concerns.

Joseph Cirincione, the president of Ploughshares Fund and an expert on nuclear weapons policy, speaks with Martin Savidge about the threat of nuclear weapons facing the Obama administration. They discuss Obama’s approach to Iran and other nuclear concerns.

Scaremongering of the lowest order.
From the only nation on earth to murder 10’s of thousands with nuclear weapons – obscene and sickening.
