I do not see why so many people think that Iran as a nuclear power would create a kind of ‘balance’ in the Middle East similar to that balance of the Cold War. I think it is the most dangerous misconception of our time. It was Lady Thatcher herself that warned us in her Fulton speech in 1996 that ‘We in the West may have to deal with a number of possible adversaries, each with different characteristics. In some cases their mentalities differ from ours even more than did those of our old Cold War enemy.’ With hindsight many people can judge that Russia was an intelligent nuclear adversary. But that does not mean that the goal of every nuclear power is just a 'new balance'.
