Yousaf Butt, a nuclear physicist and professor, discusses why it’s time to end the diplomatic stalemate on Iran’s nuclear program; how the IAEA goes well beyond its mandate to keep Iran in “noncompliance” with NPT obligations; how the IAEA’s funding process allows undue influence from Western powers; how government subsidies have allowed bad nuclear energy technologies to persist for 50 years; and the need for a new NPT that isn’t politicized and selectively enforced.
