Argument: Iran can rebuild nuclear program, and make it invulnerable
Richard Haass. "A nuclear Iran: live and let live, or die another day?". The Sydney Morning Herald. January 14, 2009 - A second policy option would be for the US, Israel or both to attack Iran's known nuclear installations. Such a pre-emptive attack would destroy some or even most of Iran's nuclear facilities and materials. But some capability would probably survive, and the program could be rebuilt in a manner that would make a second attack much more difficult.
