Get a nuke, buy some time

No kidding:

The Bush administration’s decision to consider sitting down with the Iranian government underscores a central truth of diplomacy today: Nuclear weapons buy leverage.

If you’re Michael Rubin, however – neo-con and “scholar” at the American Enterprise Institute – bombing Iran is the most likely outcome “within a year.” Surely the ABC interviews people like Rubin with their tongue firmly placed somewhere safe? Or does the ABC simply believe that Rubin is credible because he is close to the Bush administration, no matter the Iraq debacle?
