The predominant characteristic of this mindset is to process input information and come to a conclusion based on what is termed and propagated as rational thinking. This rational thinking, in the domain of exact sciences, yields or at least is expected to result in a rationally explainable outcome. 2 and 2 in math is expected to yield 4 and any other possibility is discounted. Vigorous and unrelenting attempts at the application of rational scientific thought processes of an exact nature to inexact social sciences encompassing human behaviour, where the possibility of not arriving at 4 by adding 2 and 2 may exist, are still being made in academic circles with spillage onto political and administrative circles naturally prone to twisting and molding processes to achieve predetermined outcomes detrimental to scientific innocence and objectivity.
No doubt 'generalization' is a
valuable ability of rational human brain to extend and apply; it saves time and
promotes further thinking. Application, however, has its limits either to kind
or manner yearning to be adapted or discarded. This is where part of the problem
lies. Countries, mainly Western, spearheading the multi-thronged attack on
Geopolitics of the region added to the past and present catastrophic events in Iran and countries surrounding Iran are compelling enough for the rational Western mindset not accept the irrationality of the findings of IAEA with regard to Iran's nuclear program. In a simple term, when applying the rational and scientific thinking formulae to the findings of the IAEA in relation to Iran's nuclear endeavor Western Leaders say 'it doesn't add up'. In other words, they are saying to the scientists and administrators of IAEA: 'You are incompetent fools and we don't trust you because you haven't managed to uncover what our rational minds are telling us is there because it should be there!'. Looking at Iran and geopolitical environ it is located today, The US and European leaders' mindsets rationalize that Iran needs atomic weapons to protect itself in the created chaos that prevails in the region and therefore it is irrational and foolish for Iran not to vie for atomic weapons. This is in spite of the fact that time and again it has been declared, by IAEA, that no such program has been uncovered. Indeed no guns; let alone smoking ones!
