A bit anti-climactic

Reader comment on item: Using Cold War Tactics to Confront Iran

Submitted by Stas (Poland), Jan 18, 2013 at 16:07

It seems to me that the major topic of discussion for the past 4 years or so has been a nuclear Iran. With all the dialog, hypothesizing, weighing and inveighing, the status quo remains as it was. Iran is moving towards a nuclear bomb and no one and nothing is stopping them. Is all this contemplation futile? No analysis in theory has any bearing on what is happening in reality. And what is happening is reality is just as murky as it was 4 years ago. I see no progress on either side, there is little real information circulated that indicates where Iran truly is in their development.

I think we shall only know something post Israel strike. When Israel decides that they are in imminent danger and attacks pre-emptively, we will then have definitive facts that can be dealt with. All the preamble is futile, in my opinion. And I think that the same would be the case whether Bush or Obama were in office.
