Eeeek! A loophole …! Who decided that nuclear submarines were for “civilian use?”
Iran says it is justified in the production of highly enriched uranium because it is needed for the country’s nuclear submarines. It says that using nuclear power to fuel submarines is among the civilian uses of the nuclear technology and so it has a right to develop the submarines.
Ack! Is this justification justified? Should nuclear submarines be considered a “civilian use” of nuclear technology? Is this a bad loophole that needs to be closed? What do you think?
