From some work we did in 2007. It was clear that Iran had looming
challenges with employment and infrastructure. While we appreciated
the strategic problem of being surrounded by potentially hostile
countries and American military bases, our HIROLA software saw no
economic point in developing atomic weapons. The technology costs
too much and employs too few as South Africa and Brazil, among
others, discerned. Besides the vagaries of southwest Asian winds
blowing fallout and dust back on Iran, there is the consideration that
exploding nuclear devices in southwest Pakistan would interfere with
critical rice shipments to India and vital oil shipments eastward. As far
as we are aware, only Pakistan of Iran's immediate neighbors has
nuclear weapons, but a sufficiently motivated government could likely
buy them. We did a series of simulations of nuclear explosions in
the Persian Gulf itself. The follow-on tsunamis are quite destructive.
These results led us to consider a joint-ventured high speed rail
network which we dubbed Calcutta-Caspian-Cairo. Among the choices
were a hydrofoil ferry or tunnel across Hormuz; crossing by land near
Kuwait; or crossing Iraq west of Tehran. Ultimately, the trains would
be mixed-mode: freight like the old Silk Roads and pilgrims to Mecca.
