A EU document concludes that there is little that can be done to stop Iran from getting a Nuclear Bomb. Iran has the key ingredients to make a bomb, it's only being held back by technical problems. There is no chance that economic sanctions alone can now stop Iran from making a Nuclear Bomb.
Iran will be able to develop enough weapons-grade material for a nuclear bomb and there is little that can be done to prevent it, an internal European Union document has concluded.

In an admission of the international community’s failure to hold back Iran’s nuclear ambitions, the document – compiled by the staff of Javier Solana, EU foreign policy chief – says the atomic programme has been delayed only by technical limitations rather than diplomatic pressure. “Attempts to engage the Iranian administration in a negotiating process have not so far succeeded,” it states.

“In practice . . . the Iranians have pursued their programme at their own pace, the limiting factor being technical difficulties rather than resolutions by the UN or the International Atomic Energy Agency.

“The problems with Iran will not be resolved through economic sanctions alone.”

This comes at a very sensitive time for World vs. Iran relations. It's scary to think about the consequences of a nation like Iran being a nuclear power with their ambitions of controlling the middle east.

Will we see the use of a nuclear device in a war soon? I think that Israel won't stand by as its neighbor gets their hands on the weapon that could spell doomsday. First Israel, then the U.S., who knows if Russia or China might get involved.

This is all turning into one big mess, and it seems like it'll get dirtier before it gets any better.
