Should we give Peace a Chance do we really Trust our fellow Man?

Is our faith in Man worth risking a War?

Lady and the Tiger time

I was reading my Friend Mac’s Diary and an idea hit me Mac I said Iran wants power we don’t want them to have Nukes so why don’t we offer them solar cells and wind mills for free in exchange for them dismantling their Nuclear Reactor plus a Peace Treaty with what ever assurances they want?

What kind of assurances would they want what would they need to trust us thats another question.

Anyway why don’t we offer Iran more Green Power than they would get from Nuclear Power for free? Why do this because giving Iran free green power is cheaper than fighting a war?

Also it would give us causa belli to bomb their reactor if they turn us down and Iran knows that.

After all if we publicly offer them more power for free than their nuclear reactor can produce with no nuclear waste, no oil smoke polluting the air plus a peace treaty with what ever assurances they want and they still turn us down.

Then we have to assume they want to build an atom bomb. They also would have to assume that we will attack them if they turned us down. We trap them by publicly forcing them into a situation with 2 outcomes and let them choose.

I’m against war but this idea could avoid a war or create one. If we assume Man is not inherently evil this idea should work should we give this idea a shot?

If we trust in our fellow man we can avoid a war and maybe make a friend. But if we are wrong we create a war instantly.
Is it better to take a risk and hope for the best or is it better to wait and do nothing?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
