Iran, ignoring international norms, continues to prepare for a nuclear test, citing the 'ever-present threat from the region's unwelcome nuclear bully [Israel]' as sufficient to require the possession of a nuclear weapon by any nation that could attain one.
Iran demands that Israel begin systematic elimination of its nuclear program and immediately restart negotiations for a two-state solution in Israel on terms favorable to Palestine. If Israel fails to meet these demands within three days, Iran claims it will conduct an underground nuclear test.
|Agree to cooperate||Join international pressure on Iran, diplomatically and economically. Do nothing militarily, as international norms prohibit Iran from using a nuclear weapon and Israel from instigating a war. (Constructivism)|
|Join the coalition conditionally||Demand the coalition receive UN legitimacy before any action is undertaken. Additionally, back a new international agreement that demands International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) approval before testing any nuclear weapon. (Liberalism)|
|Take action||Declare Germany's intent to ensure that Iran stays non-nuclear. Secretly accelerate nuclear program, with goal to be ready to test in 3-6 months, and militarize US warheads in case the situation deteriorates. (Realism)|
