Ahead of Talks Between US and Iran, The Economist Warns Against Conflict : GlobalGiants.com
15-page special report in this week's issue of The Economist finds an uncompromising Iran and an uncomprehending America may be stumbling to war.
NEW YORK, July 23 -- United States and Iranian officials are preparing to meet in Baghdad to discuss the conflict in Iraq as early as tomorrow. But while the world has been distracted by Iraq, Afghanistan and much else, Iran has been moving relentlessly closer to the point where it could build an atomic bomb. Iran is now within fingertip-touch of mastering the art of enriching uranium. If the world intends to halt Iran by peaceful means, time is running short, argues Peter David, Foreign Editor of The Economist in this week's issue of the magazine. And if peaceful means fail, Israel or America may resort to war. |GlobalGiants.com|
