Iran unplugged banks of centrifuges involved in its most sensitive uranium enrichment work on Monday, prompting the United States and European Union to partially lift economic sanctions as a landmark deal aimed at easing concerns over Iran's nuclear program went into effect.
In an annual report to Congress March 12, Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper said Iran could not produce weapons-grade uranium without it being detected. It already has.
"To jaw-jaw," Winston Churchill once wisely said, "is always better than to war-war." Anyone who has seen war up close would agree with Sir Winston, who saw a lot of shooting wars. But obstinate mullahs in Iran push that proposition to the max.
Despite the statement by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Israel's red line on Iran's illicit nuclear program could be reached by next spring, Iranian officials are adamant that war is close.
In defiant swipes at its foes, Iran said Wednesday it is dramatically closer to mastering the production of nuclear fuel even as the U.S. weighs tougher pressures and Tehran's suspected shadow war with Israel brings probes far beyond the Middle East.
