Iran Nuclear Crisis Still at an Impasse

By Dan Raviv
Michael Adler, longtime journalist in Europe who covered the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna for years, has just scored a scoop in Moscow.  He’s gotten a lot of inside information from Russia’s deputy foreign minister Sergey Ryabkov, about the latest talks about Iran’s nuclear program: Iran on one side of the table, the United Nations “Permanent 5” plus Germany on the other.

Ryabkov also mentions to Adler that American officials are “not particulary optimistic about all this.”  That assessment may add weight to our feeling — not quite a prediction, but a possible outcome — that the United States (not Israel) may be the one to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities one day.  In the meantime, sabotage by the U.S. and Israel almost surely continues.
