I agree, fundamentally, with what you say. I just don't see how letting
what's essentially becoming a third-world nation after fifty years of being
a technological leader, freeze because it displeases US for them to run
their flawed reactor, for which they've already paid, is gong to help
anyone, especially since they can't just build a replacement with any

Surviving to get there is more important than having a pristine "there" to
get. It doesn't matter if we're all surely going to die if we're already
