Nuclear experts from the Oxford Research Group have some words of advice for world leaders about their future dealings with Iran. Scientist Frank Barnaby, who co-authored the think tank’s report, warned that pre-emptive military action “could speed Iran’s progress to a nuclear bomb.”
The conclusions published by the British-based Oxford Research Group on Monday are supported by Hans Blix, the former chief UN weapons inspector in Iraq.
Frank Barnaby, one of the report’s authors and a leading nuclear scientist, said an attack on Iran could stimulate the development of nuclear weapons.
“[An attack] would almost certainly lead to a fast-track programme to develop a small number of nuclear devices as quickly as possible,” he said.
