"It is, perhaps, time for America and its "willing" allies - such as Britain, Japan, South Korea and Australia - to understand that what is at issue in the case of North Korea and Iran is a classical case of great-power rivalry motivated by national interests. In such rivalries, there are always two camps with conflicting agendas. The hope that the United States can organize a third camp that would include some "multipolarist" rivals is the offspring of an illusion."

Amir Taheri understands the situation. I hope Condi Rice and President Bush do as well. I think we have gone the diplomatic route because we know that right now we have no option. At a certain time, Iran will be getting close to have a nuke, and we can say: "we tried diplomacy and it didn't work."

If Iran gets the bomb, Russia bears a lot of the blame, as does E. Kahn of Pakistan. Imagine Hizbollah with nukes!
