Iran will play for time as it has done all along. The reluctant- to-act Western powers will play the game. However the pressure on Washington is coming from many sources. The Europeans, the French British German are also extremely worried about a nuclear Iran capable of reaching their territory. The Gulf Arabs are deeply fearful. Sanctions have not worked to this point. They probably will not work even if made much harsher. Intelligence sources now say Iran has enough enriched material for two weapons. The weaponization question is now 'the question'. But this is a relatively simple part of the process. There is now a dispute over whether or not Iran has a facility working on the process. The truth is the U.S. is reluctant to take the military action required to stop Iran. It may change its mind, and it may not. So far we have not seen much competence from the Obama Administration in its foreign policy.
