    300% more higher-grade enriched uranium, testing high explosives and revamp a ballistic missile cone to accommodate a nuclear warhead. Obama can't hide behind the IAEA's "dialogue in a constructive spirit" (-what else can Amano propose?-) as if there is no urgency, and sanctions could last what they have lasted in Cuba. The matter is to be addressed now (-preferably yesterday-), not when it suits Obama's own agenda. I hope Netanyahu can complement AIPAC's listening to Obama, with an honest and clear message. No, President Obama, now is not the time to speculate with an instrument such as sanctions and waiting for them to "sink in". It is time to coordinate the actual stopping of Iran's nuclear weapons' program. The president of the USA can't put his own ego's agenda on top of such a global threat he himself acknowledges.
