I think it’s always best to have diplomatic relations with countries with whom we have differences of opinion. America, more than any other country, doesn’t do that.

I think to constantly threaten Iran with atomic attack is one of the incentives that might lead them to move toward a nuclear arsenal, even if they weren’t otherwise inclined to do so.
