Need an research paper on iran’s nuclear power. Needs to be 5 pages. Please no plagiarism. Iran is a regional power within the Middle-East and as such continually seeks to play a more defining role with respect to the political movements and determinations of the other Middle-Eastern states. Furthermore, the issue is complicated by the unique relationship that the United States maintains with Israel – the only functional democracy within the region. Lastly, the issue is complicated by the fact that the United States seeks to keep some form of a status quo within the Middle Eastern region. Though this more often than not is never achieved, a nuclear Iran will have the direct effect of encouraging neighboring nations to develop their own nuclear capabilities as a means of matching the disproportionate power and influence that a nuclear Iran would yield. As such, each of these considerations helps to define the way that the United States interacts with and forms its policy with regards to Iran and its nuclear ambitions.
The first of these complicating factors have to do with the fact that the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran share a mutual distrust and hatred for one another. This distrust and hatred have been born out of a very long history of government subversion and US-supported puppet regimes within Iran. After the Islamic Revolution in the 1970s, the situation was made worse between the two countries as the United States embassy personnel were paraded in front of international media with blindfolds and held within Iran for a total of 444 days. This mutual distrust has led to a breakdown in understanding between the two nations both believe the other has dubious motives in either seeking to acquire nuclear material or seeking to deprive the other of such acquisitions.
The second complicating factor revolves around the fact that the United States has sought to contain nuclear proliferation since the use of the first atomic weapon in Hiroshima in 1945.
