ABSTRACT
The article presents advice to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regarding its role in nuclear arms control. Nuclear proliferation is a growing menace. The war in Iraq has revealed the difficulty of preventive wars of disarmament and thereby underscored the critical role the Vienna-based agency must play. The world's security now depends more on the IAEA than ever before. The haves, including the United States, will not agree to expand cooperation in nuclear-power development if the non-nuclear-weapon states do not agree to firm up the rules. If you confine yourself to collecting and reporting facts with uncompromising vigor, leaving the interpretation to the Board of Governors, individual states, and the United Nations Security Council, you will minimize political controversy directed at the agency. Clearly, new rules are needed to ensure the dual international interests of expanding nuclear power generation while preventing weapons proliferation.
