    Still, the sooner Iran can be developed for oil, the better. Between them, Iran and Iraq could produce 20 million barrels a day of cheap oil, ushering in an extended period of low stable oil prices globally.
    So Iran gets a bomb. Pakistan, India and Israel have bombs. Russia has bombs. That is not pleasant but it is what it is.

  2. We used to worry about Russia having the bomb, because there was a real chance they might use it (just remember the fear in the 70’s and 80’s if you were alive then.) Iran getting a bomb would be similar, and their neighbors would insist on getting the bomb too. I’ll pay $5/gal for gas to have Iran not have the bomb.
