" ... a country that has persistently struggled to obtain nuclear weapons for 15 years, now that it is relatively close to achieving the ultimate goal?" This is not an analysis, this is a bizarre claim. The real problem are people, who worship their fears, who confuse opinions and speculation with truth and who do not make an effort, to consider the other possibilities. It's like a trial, where you have no advocate and no judge, only a powerful prosecutor, who wants to win his case and who is trying to impress a rather naive audience. Iran is playing by the rules of the judge here, they revealed the construction of the second enrichment plant to the IAEA well in advance of any enrichment activity - and all of this is in perfect harmony with the treaty obligations. So where is the problem? Iran is not under any obligation, to inform Western politicians or the media or the IAEA about every construction site and the IAEA has probably no interest, to visit empty buildings
