     Deake Hargrave and J. Kent Hastings on "A Nuclear Iran"

Howard Hinman moderates this two-person panel. What is Iran's nuclear capacity? How will an Iranian Bomb affect regional stability?  What of Iran's internal stresses? What is a proper foreign policy approach to Iran?  Is there a problem? If so, what are the possible military and non-military solutions?

Howard will give a short history of US/Iran "governmental relations" and an overview of Just War theory. Deake will take the position that Iran should be attacked and/or invaded. Kent will oppose this. Followed by an audience Q&A.
