"As you may know, it was recently discovered that scientists in Pakistan were illicitly selling nuclear weapons technology to Iran, North Korean and Libya. The Pakistan government has arrested the leading scientist and he has apologized. However, Pakistan has refused to allow international inspectors to monitor its nuclear weapons program to make sure that this does not happen again. Which of the following positions is closest to yours? To get Pakistan to allow in inspectors, the U.S. should apply pressure, such as economic sanctions, because it is essential to make sure that there is no further spreading of nuclear weapons technology. The U.S. should not put pressure on Pakistan, because if it does this might lead to such a backlash by radical Islamists that the Pakistan government might not continue to cooperate in the hunt for al Qaeda."
