Intelligence Squared U.S. - Can Israel live with a nuclear Iran?

Solid food for the mind.” “My must-listen podcast.” IQ2 US is the program for listeners who crave a clear view of the big questions that divide Americans. Every episode brings together world thinkers, policy-makers and journalists, in 2 on 2 debates, to argue the pros and cons of issues like health care, foreign policy, clean energy, and the war. Then listeners weigh in. Expect ear-catching, provocative radio that enlightens, entertains and informs.

Despite increased international pressure and economic sanctions, the IAEA reported that Iran doubled its number of underground nuclear centrifuges over the summer of 2012, stopping just short of the capacity to produce nuclear fuel. Can Iran be trusted to act rational, or is Israel correct in viewing it as an existential threat? Prime Minister Netanyahu has criticized President Obama for his refusal to draw a “red line” that would trigger U.S. military action, hinting at the prospect of a pre-emptive Israeli strike. But what are the costs and benefits of military action? Is a nuclear Iran inevitable, and will it destabilize the region?
