Professor Shmuel Bar said hopes for a nuclear-free Middle East were unrealistic in light of circumstances in Iran. He described waning U.S. influence in the region, and warned that nuclear proliferation could lead to a similar problem in Asia as countries began to rely less on America’s ability to project a nuclear deterrent.
