Looming nuclear warfare?

I haven't paid much attention to the Iranian nuclear threat, being more directly interested in the youthful uprisings in Tehran, but a serious article in today's New York Times Magazine (which I barely read as a rule) grabbed my attention. It's by Ronen Bergman, an analyst for the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, and author of β€˜β€˜The Secret War With Iran.’’ No doubt it will be controversial, but it struck me as the best sort of reporting: lucid, calm, in-depth, on-site, based on extensive interviews and solidly presented facts. I recommend it highly as background for the high tensions the Middle East will face in the next few months, and the role that America will play.
