    The situation's epicenter is Iran's unrelenting pursuit of nuclear weapons. Around it is Israel's understandable concern vis a vis an explicit, existential threat by Iran's regime. Then, there is Syria in upheaval, Egypt in choppy waters, Hezballah and Hamas nervous about their supply line via Damascus, and Turkey gaining ascendancy in the region, in indirect collision course with Iran. The Arab countries divided, as usual, in an uncertain moment of change. China and Russia are not playing a constructive role, but simply covering up the Ayatollahs' nuclear behinds due to money, greed and imperial ambitions coupled with a geopolitical interest in a "stability in Central Asia" which is more ficticious, than real. Watering down the IAEA report is a gross mistake by both powers, and the fact Iran puppets Iraq now, is terrible news for everyone, except Iran.
