Foreign Policy Publishes CNS Associate’s Examination of Middle East Nuclear Aspirations
January 3, 2010
Leading international affairs journal Foreign Policy recently published a piece written by Senior Research Associate Chen Kane of the Monterey Institute’s James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies. Reviewing the nuclear capabilities and ambitions of various Middle Eastern states, Kane notes that “the global economic crisis has disrupted the calculus of nuclear power. An alternative to oil that once appeared to be a clear cost-saver has now come to look very unattractive.” This in turn leads Kane to posit that “The scaling back of the Middle Eastern nuclear industry seems rational and likely within the context of global trends -- and this fact raises serious questions about Iran's motivations as it ramps up its own nuclear program.”
