Hope for future generations lies in economic viability and jobs for all peoples of all tribes...these two tangibles will transcend politics....

not so sure its that simple now that the nuclear genie is out of the bottle. Take Pakistan for example. Before they were a nuclear power, they were shunned for all kinds of bad behavior. What happened since becoming a nuclear power? The USA is a friend, India won't seek a "final solution" for disputed territory (Pakistan has at least 20 nuclear tipped missiles that can hit anywhere in India) and Pakistan now has the respect it needs to follow Frank Sinatra's mantra "I did it my way". Why wouldn't Iran want to become a nuclear power too if becoming one garners instant respect, especially when you are sitting on all that oil? Funny how everybody seems to get along better under a MAD (mutually assured destruction) policy.
