Supreme Leader Khameini and Iran's Foreign Minister Salehi say all the right things about nuclear weapons.
Access to an Iranian military test facility wan't explicitly denied to nuclear inspectors, just subject to bargaining.
American officials believe that Iran would retaliate against the United States even if the U.S. doesn't take part.
According to Gingrich's logic, North Vietnam would have been justified in attacking the United States.
What would be the benefits to Iran of developing nuclear weapons?
If Israel or the United States starts a disastrous war with Iran, it will be because someone thought it was a good idea.
Optimism about U.S. budget cuts to nukes was soon overtaken by tension over Iran's nuclear enrichment program and a fire on a Russian nuclear sub.
"If we manage to avoid this war, someone will deserve a Peace Prize, but probably not someone who already has one."
The West's sanctions on Iran are hurting the country's middle class and marginalizing the country's pragmatists. But they can neither cripple Iran's economy nor halt its nuclear program.
President Obama, too, is pushing the envelope with Tehran to keep the Republicans at bay.
