Wieseltier on Deterrence & Iran

Leon Wieseltier has an essay posted at the New Republic that serves as an invitation to everyone to think more clearly about the stakes involved with Iran's effort to gain a nuclear weapon. And, he makes some fine points about the limits of rationality along the way.

TNR recently announced that they were removing the firewall that had previously left some of their content, and all of Wieseltier's essays, available only to paid subscribers. I hope readers will avail themselves of this new, free resource. I can't say I always agree with Wieseltier but I can say that he always makes me think more deeply about any issue he addresses. And, his writing is the gold standard for editorial journalism.
