    Debunking Iran's nuclear myth makers
    By Kaveh L Afrasiabi

    The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has requested that Iran suspend its uranium enrichment and reprocessing activities as a "confidence-building measure", in light of Iran's 18 years of non-transparency. Tehran now faces two paths: either heed this call or face tougher sanctions and, worse, the possibility of war. ​

    Increasingly, the voices of dissent in Iran on the nation's nuclear policy are getting louder and louder, reflecting a growing disenchantment with the confrontational policies of President Mahmud Ahmadinejad, which according to many Iranian pundits have put vital national-security interests at risk. ​

    "It is starting to look like a real tragedy," a Tehran political-science professor told the author, adding, "An inexperienced mayor [of Tehran] with no previous international exposure was put at the helm, and he brought in his aides who were equally novices in the realm of international politics, at a critical time in Iran's foreign relations. The result has been near-disastrous. But, hopefully, other leaders will put a stop to this nonsense."​

    Ken, I want to give another plug for your integrity. You waited a long time to accept the arguments that Tehran was seeking to build nuclear weapons and when you found the evidence convincing you had no problem admitting it. You're a good man, KenH.
