Iran - Ahmadinejad Has 3 Simple Questions ???

The controversial nuclear program of Iran has been inviting ire of the international community for the past quite some time. The United States and some western countries have recently slapped tough economic sanctions on Iran to force the country to shut down its nuclear program. President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other civilian and military leadership so far appears defiant to demands of the international community. The leadership has been issuing threatening statements to Israel and the US for their alleged plans to strike nuclear facilities of the country.

In one of the latest moves, Obama administration and its western allies are planning to start dialogue with Iranian leadership by setting some potential demands to be fulfilled immediately. Obama administration is going to demand Iran that it should immediately close down Fordo enrichment plant and subsequently dismantle it. The international community wants Iran to do some viable steps to assure the world powers that the country is not pursuing nuclear weapons as being widely believed.

Obama administration and its European allies also demand the country to immediately halt the production of uranium fuel that is considered to be just a few steps away from developing atomic bomb. Reportedly, President Obama has called the move last chance for Iran to resolve the nuclear issue through dialogue and diplomatic means. If this is the last chance for Iran, what could be next step of the international community to resolve the issue? Israel, one of the neighboring and rival countries of Iran, can strike nuclear sites of Iran with the support of the United States and other western countries.

The military attack on nuclear sites of Iran can destroy the facilities as Israel did in Iraq back in 1980s. But has anybody thought about the possible repercussions of the military attack? Iran has repeatedly warned Israel and the United States against a military attack on its soil. Supreme Leader of the country Ayatollah Khamenei recently reiterated to launch attacks on the United States if Iran comes under fire from Israel of the US. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has also never kept his intentions aggressive intentions against Israel secret.

On the other hand, a recent report prepared by the US Congress on controversial nuclear program of Iran said that no country including the United States and Israel knew exact locations of the nuclear facilities of Iran. Therefore, the report said it would be wise to restrain from launching a military attack. Intelligence agencies of the US have also said Iran is still far from developing nuclear weapons while spying agencies of Israel and Britain believe the country could develop atomic bomb in the next couple of years if not checked by the international community.

Iran has yet not responded to recent demands of Obama administration and let’s see what comes out in the scheduled dialogue on Friday.
