This is Who Kenneth Waltz Thinks Should Have a Nuclear Bomb

Foreign Affairs, a leading journal covering foreign policy, has published a piece in its July-August issue by Columbia University Professor Kenneth Waltz advising us not to worry about an Iranian nuclear bomb. In fact, Waltz says "a nuclear-armed Iran would probably be the best possible result of the standoff and the one most likely to restore stability to the Middle East." Dismissing American and Israeli concerns as "typical of major powers, which have historically gotten riled up whenever another country begins to develop a nuclear weapon," Waltz argues that the Iranian leadership is rational.

Within that context, comments made by Iranian Vice President Mohammad Reza-Rahimi at a UN sponsored conference commemorating the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking deserve consideration. This is what he had to say according to Press TV, Iran's main international news service:

"The Zionists play a key role in the production and distribution of narcotics across the globe, because destroying human societies and exploiting their virtues are among the objectives of the Zionists..." Rahimi said... Numerous studies have attested to the fact that the Zionists regard themselves as the master race and they view the other races as their slaves that must be used for achieving the Zionist objectives, he said.
While the Zionists utilize the narcotics to devastate other societies, they safeguard their own society against such drugs, he pointed out.
The Iranian vice president expressed Tehran’s preparedness to sponsor an international investigation into the role of the Zionist entities in the production and distribution of narcotics across the world.

FARS news agency, which billls itself as Iran's leading independent news agency also reported on his speech. Here is how it covered the speech:

Addressing a ceremony on the occasion of the International Day of Drug Abuse here in Tehran on Tuesday, Rahimi stated that prevalence of narcotics and drug-addition throughout the world finds its roots in the wrong teachings of the Zionists' religious book, Talmud.
The Talmud (Hebrew: "instruction, learning") is a central text of mainstream Judaism in the form of a record of rabbinic discussions pertaining to Jewish law, ethics, philosophy, customs and history. "The book teaches them how to destroy non-Jews so as to protect an embryo in the womb of a Jewish mother," Rahimi stated. The Iranian vice-president said that the Zionists' direct involvement in the prevalence of illicit drugs is while "you cannot find a single addict among the Zionists."

Apparently Professor Waltz is confident that men who think the way Rahimi does will act responsibly once they have access to a nuclear bomb.

Waltz, seems to be one of those "scholars" persuaded by the idea we can nurture and move forward "moderate" Islamic intersts with tolerance instaead of action. I wonder how he responds to the stoning of a peaceful Christian demonstration on public property in Deerborn, MI; and the police failed to respond? Tolerance is suicide given the threat for any non-Muslim. President Obama attempted to negotiate with the Taliban, an institution that was and is a crime against humanity, just recently beheading 18 Afghanistan police. Obama conformed to the spirit of the War Powers Resolution in regard to Libya but how did we get dragged into giving the "rebels" with al-Qadea in the ranks air support when our troops suffered their most casualties since beginning the war for lack of ROE's that would give them air cover? Yet Obama went out of is way to submit a letter to the Senate stating is deployemtn of 100 US troops to Uganda to run down Joseph Kony and his Army which was portrayed as a Christian terrorist army when Kony is fact Christian, Muslim and buddhist serving 13 spirits on high places. Kony is a madman and the sooner the Resistance is elimanted with its leader the better. What concerns me was the publicity, the openess on the one hand and the continued favoring of equally and just aggreivous Islamist formations, like the Taliban, Hamas , hizbhallah etc.,.When useful idiots like Watz jump in and defend the overt arming of Islamist institutions it should give us pause. Great focus by CAMERA.
