    Besides the irony of the Israeli nukes driving the middle east nuclear slide, there is a fundamental issue that not many people are talking about. The NPT allows the enriching of uranium to LEU grade. From there, it is only a few years of dictatorship for any country to arm themselves with deadly atomic weapons. The way I see it the entire premise of the NPT is flawed. Besides the ridiculously easy means of moving to HEU and weapons, we have been building incredible stores of plutonium for fifty years without a plan to actually deal with them. The concept of the peaceful atom was only wishful thinking. Today, it seems the IAEA has become aware of this flaw. In doing so, it is attempting to put unprecedented sway and limitation on the sovereign country of Iran in its pursuit of the full nuclear fuel cycle. Something's amiss. If the NPT has a flawed basis, we should fix the NPT for ALL countries, or we should allow everyone to have LEU for nuclear power.
