5. Ahhh, the North Korea tactic. Agree, renounce agreement, test fire, hold talks, agree, renounce...
Not only has North Korea proven that having nuclear weapons provides a large degree of regime security, but they have shown the way to negotiate with the West to get what you want.

You can agree or disagree with what Iran is doing, but you have to say that they are not stupid. They learn from what happens in the world and use that knowledge effectively to accomplish whatever their government's goal is whether that is staying in power by suppressing electoral discontent or achieving nuclear power - peaceful or otherwise.
