Iran: A Timeline to Offer Some Perspective.

Scott Peterson at The Christian Science Monitor offers a useful timeline from 1979 to the President reminding us of warnings that Iran is on the brink of having nuclear weapons (and apparently always has been).

Another thought: a few years ago when the IAEA said Iran was no longer developing weapons, a lot of people denounced the IAEA as biased and/or blind. Since yesterday many of those same folks seem to think the IAEA has somehow become an infallible source.

It seems that Iran has made slow but fairly steady progress toward becoming a nuclear. It dose not matter what the US has done the march continues. May the US should stop its opposition but tell Iran if any nuclear weapons are used against any allies Iran would then cease to exist. Iran will gain its goal of joining the nuclear club.
