After Iran gets the Bomb

James Lindsay and Ray Takey, both from the Council on Foreign Relations, have produced what certainly is an interesting article in the latest issue of Foreign Affairs. Their argument is simple: Iran is determined to become the world's tenth nuclear power and there is nothing that we can do about it. So let us think about how we are going to deal with a nuclear Iran. Bottom line: It will get ugly, but nothing we can't manage. Only thing we would have to do is to draw some credible red lines.

This is all very well, but I do have one objection: We've already done that. If not allowing a country going nuclear isn't a red line, what is? If we cannot defend this line, what line will be able and willing to defend?
