    alone, and inconceivable that Obama would authorize an attack before the election. But the official language of the US position is still "all options are on the table".

    This language might be just a bargaining ploy, or it might be a very real intention - there's no way to know.

    I believe that Iran has every intention of developing the full nuclear cycle, which would give it the capability to produce nuclear weapons. Which is perfectly legal under the non-proliferation treaty, though apparently unacceptable to Washington. And completely unacceptable to Israel.

    Therefore it seems to me that there is a real threat of a US attack on Iran, although the danger is not immanent.
