More news from Iran

The situation in Iran is heating up considerably, and it is receiving the world's attention.

Three articles summarize the situation:

"Israel: Iranian Nuclear Disclosure Proof It Seeks Atom Bomb". In this article we see the following:

"Israel Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman says Itan's new disclosure of an additional nuclear facility is proof that the Islamic Republic is seeking the atom bomb."

"World reached last opportunity for engagement with Iran". Quotes:

"Nobody is worried about the Palestinian problems; everybody in the muslim and arab world - and first and foremost in the Gulf states - is worried about the Iranian problem", Lieberman stated.

"Lieberman said that in his meetings with Arab foreign ministers at the UN General Assembly last week, they expressed alarm over Iran's nuclear program."

Then if this weren't enough, Iran has the audacity to stage war games - at this moment in history:

'"Yom Kippur in Iran: War Games and Missile Drill". Quotes:

"Iran will conduct war games and fire missiles that can hit Israel while Jews around the world are praying on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. The Revolutionary Guards website said that military exercises, including the simultaneous firing of missiles at targets, will begin Sunday and last for several days "to raise the deterrence capability of the Iranian armed forces."

"Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu called Congressional leaders Saturday night and told them it is urgent that the United States respond to the growing threat that Iran will produce a nuclear warhead for a missile aimed at Israel. He asked...'If not now, then when?'"

"If not now, then when?" A question worth repeating.

This situation is moving at breakneck speed. I can only imagine what will have happened by the end of this year.
