IAEA report on Iran set to stoke Middle East tension
http://uk.reuters.com/article/2011/11/06/uk-nuclear-iran-idUKTRE7A50KT20111106

(Reuters) - The U.N. nuclear watchdog is expected this week to issue its most detailed report yet on research in Iran seen as geared to developing atomic bombs, heightening international suspicions of Iranian intentions and fuelling Middle East tension.

Western powers are likely to seize on the International Atomic Energy Agency document, which has been preceded by media speculation in Israel of military strikes against Iranian nuclear sites, to press for more sanctions on the oil producer.

But Russia and China fear the publication now of the IAEA's findings could hurt any chance of diplomacy resolving the long-running nuclear row and they have lobbied against it, signalling opposition to any new punitive U.N. measures against Iran.

Iran rejects allegations of atomic weapons ambitions, saying its nuclear programme is aimed at producing electricity.

3. America must have a war waiting to be started because Iraq
is winding down.

With the history of America attacking other countries, overtly or covertly, I can see why Iran would be wanting this.

Lets see China and Pakistan both have nukes.

Another boogieman for war mongers.
