1. and the logical nexus is WHAT?
Burt said he wants to see and will propose both the United States and Russia announce early next year that they are going to resume negotiations on a treaty that will substantially reduce further their nuclear arsenals.

What good will that do?

I don't think Iran wants nuclear weapons because the USA and Russia have them.

I think Iran wants nuclear weapons because Iran wants to be a "regional superpower".

Actually, the WEAKER the USA and Russia are; the MORE important are the Iranian nukes.

( Take it to the logical extreme - if the USA, Russia, UK, France... had NONE, and
Iran had SOME; Iran would be the nuclear SUPERPOWER )
