    Just what "nuke ambitions" does Iran have?  Prove that they've got them.  What criteria gets applied to prove that they've abandoned them?  Bibi wants Iran to forego all enrichment.  What's it worth to Bibi and Likud Israel?  Iran might be willing to forego uranium enrichment in return for receiving subsidies to buy enriched uranium for their nuclear power needs on the global market, which would be more expensive than using domestic Iranian sources.  A back of the envelope calculation would seem to show that three full nuclear power reloads might cost $150 million for the uranium fuel, per reactor.  Those three reloads would cover a thirty year operating need.  Providing that subsidy might persuade the Iranians to forego enrichment.  When does somebody make the offer?
