If the Iranians cheat, at least we will then know where to drop the bombs. Their argument goes like this:
"The Iran deal creates inspections that allow the United States and five world powers — Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany — to probe the strategic importance of various nuclear sites. If inspectors suspect cheating, they can demand access to the location. Any resistance by Iran would shine an enormous spotlight on that particular site. It would tell the West the site is important enough for Iran to risk war and would suggest that Tehran’s activity there violates the deal. It creates, in effect, a clear military target.Makes sense. I only wonder why no one thought of it before.
"Without a deal, the allies have no way of knowing which sites are truly important. So Washington and its allies would have to consider bombing them all. The more targets Washington asks the military to destroy, the greater the chance for failure, collateral damage and escalation."
