On Iran: "The Iranians have enough money to buy a bomb if they wanted one, on the black market, so I think all of this has been hugely overblown in US propaganda, and Israeli propaganda."
On Korea: "You have the equivalent of a medieval absolute monarchy and so what's going on in Korea is palace politics, and ... I think the US would be wise to let what is happening in that close-to-failed state play out without irritating it to the point of a war."
On the US: "I would argue that when it comes to adhering to international norms, that probably the biggest outlier state right now is the United States itself. The US has assumed for itself the authority to do whatever it wants regardless of international norms. And I would look at the invasion of Iraq, the threatened war against Iran--which does not pose an imminent threat to the US certainly, and probably to anybody--and the use of a place like Guantanamo that defies all international norms, and the use of drone attacks in any country we want to attack. These are all the actions of what would qualify as a rogue state."
