THE ISLAMIC Republic of Iran renewed its nuclear program a quarter of a century ago at the end of its bloody war with Iraq in the late 1980s.

One of the conclusions reached in the wake of that war by Iran’s generals and strategists was that their country needed strategic tools for deterrence and retaliation. Hence, they launched a chemical weapons program (Iran was a victim of Saddam Hussein’s chemical arsenal); renewed the country’s nuclear program, which had originally begun during the reign of the Shah; and complemented it with an extensive missile program to be used for delivery systems.
