America Abroad: Iran and the Bomb

Sun, 05/06/2012 - 9:00pm

Iran’s nuclear ambitions have the world on edge. Because of its reluctance to admit international inspectors, and its progress in enriching uranium, the situation is increasingly tense. A nuclear Iran could lead to a Middle Eastern arms race and destabilize the world’s oil market. But are sanctions and other diplomatic efforts enough to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons? In this edition of America Abroad, we explore whether Iran's leaders can be persuaded to abandon a nuclear weapons program. What would a nuclear Iran mean for the rest of the world? America Abroad: Iran and the Bomb airs Sunday, May 6 at 9 p.m. on AM 1370/FM-HD 91.5-2.
