    DIPLOMACY first ! On 12.29.11, Mossad chief Tamir Pardo said: “A nuclear – armed Iran would NOT necessary constitute a threat to Israel’s continued existence” and Pardo’s predecessor as Mossad chief, Meir Dagan “ also criticized PM Netanyahu and Defense Minister E. Barak, accusing them of pushing for a Israeli attack on Iran, and warned that such an assault would have disastrous consequences”. -USA is now buying much more oil from Saudi Arabia than before ( it means less oil for other countries). SA produced 9,625 million barrels per day in January 2012, and they could rise output to 12,5 million barrel per day if needed… It is important, too: if oil price is above $ 70 per barrel, it means more money for Iranian’s nuclear program ! -India did right decision by cutting oil import from Iran and supporting INTERNATIONAL pressure on Iran. -Pr. Obama and USA Alleys, put so though sanctions toward Iran, to prevent Iran to get nuclear weapon: sanction on Iran’s oil and gas business, blocked assistance to Iran in nuclear program, blocked Iranian banks ( including Dubai bank, because it “has served as a chief vehicle for Iran to evade sanctions”), pressure on Iran’s national shipping and airplanes lines… ” There are risks that an Iranian nuclear weapon could fall into the hands of a terrorist organization. It is almost certain that others in the region would feel compelled to get their own nuclear weapon, triggering an arms race in one of the world's most volatile regions” ( Pr. Obama )
