This panel was part of a two day seminar at the Burkle center in UCLA titled "Nuclear Weapons in a New Century: Facing the Emerging Challenges".

Regional Threats: Iran
Professor Scott Sagan (Stanford University)
Professor Abbas Milani (Hoover Institution)
Professor Emeritus Nikki Keddie (UCLA)
Moderator: General Lee Butler (Ret.)


Professor Sagan: "I think we should be really, really worried about the potential of Iran for getting nuclear weapons. Potential military force would be counter-productive but we can get into the diplomatic solutions that I think still exist".

Professor Milani: "Enrichment is hardly worth risking the whole country to the brink of war."

Professor Keddie: "This is a history of two sided faults and problems. It's not just Iran defying the US on various things. But, there is a history on our side of major intervention in Iran which is still lived very much by Iranians to make them very suspicious of us."
