Crisis looms as Iran resumes nuclear work - The clock is tickingTopics: Iran
I wrote on August 5 that there was an article by Amir Tahiri in Arab News about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who was sworn in as the new president of the Islamic Republic of Iran that day, and that the world would be watching for clues to policies that he might pursue in the next four years.
Although I believe Ahmadinejad to be a dangerous Islamic radical who hates the West and has risen up the ranks of the regime by supporting and facilitating terrorists, Tahiri obviously felt quite different. Either way, as Tahiri pointed out, the clock on his presidency had started ticking. I also said that I could only hope that along with the ticking of the clock on his presidency, the world as we know it hadn't started ticking along with it.
Now, the world as we know it may have already begun ticking down to a nuclear confrontation, and worse, unless the West puts a halt to Iran's plans that will turn the Middle East into an arms race of nuclear proportions, with terrorist nations such as Iran and Syria providing easy access to the spread of nuclear terrorism.
Iran has put itself on a collision course with the West after it resumed ultra-sensitive nuclear fuel work at its uranium conversion plant in Isfahan despite warnings from the international community.
