    The Iranian nuclear program began during the reign of the Pahlavis, with American assistance. Even back then there were whispers that the ultimate goal was a bomb. So the project is not new. The problem is that the present regime declares readiness to subject their country to disaster to advance the coming of their messiah, Twelfth Imam. How deal with that problem, Yuval? Of course bombing Iran will not derail, only slow the bomb. But at least it would buy time to develop other strategies. And time and imminence might provide a better response to next generation of world leaders more convinced of the threat. And the threat? It is no doubt years before Iran can deliver a nuclear device by missile. But via a terrorist with a suitcase "dirty bomb"?
