Iran may soon be the first of several countries to join the nuclear club, with the help of Russian expertise

By Eve Conant and Adam Piore

Sept. 8 issue — They call it the “Berlin Wall.” It’s a plain, six-foot-high concrete barrier that bisects an unnamed village outside the Iranian city of Bushehr. On one side, about 1,500 Iranians live under Sharia—they lead quiet, spartan lives of work and prayer at the local mosque, with men and women strictly segregated. A few feet away on the other side of the wall, a rollicking population of 800 or so Russians and Ukrainians swill homemade moonshine and carouse late into the night.
