    In the end there probably no solution to this problem.Iran has a very complex political situation and it is possible that the mullahs will overplay their hand and cause a reaction.For all practical purposes the present cadre of reformers have exhausted their support because they have been unable to cope with the oligarchial powers of the Supreme Council.They have not delivered and there seems to be no internal political solution. However all of that is superfluos to the Nuclear question because all Iranian factions agree on the need to acquire the Bomb.It does not take more than a cursory glance at the map to see how the Iranians might feel threatened by their neighbours and the American forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.In fact it is reasonable for them to question whether or not George W Bush isn't capable of another historic blunder. As for militairy options that could do little more than delay the Iranians.In fact it would probably strengthen the mullahs and their allies by unifying the country against the Zionist entity and the American Imperialists. In fact the militairy option seems to have no hope of doing more than delaying the Iranians.The only real hope of success is to somehow help those who want to replace the mullahs.That would not produce a government that didn't desire nuclear weapons,but it would almost certainly produce a government less likely to see a nuclear weapon as something of practical value.
