Is It Too Late To Stop Iran? That's What A Former US Defense Official Says

It may be true that "all things come to he who waits"--but who said that all of them are good?
It may be too late to stop Iran developing a nuclear weapon, a former senior US defence official has warned.

The official, who has long experience with several US administrations, said President Obama had waited too long to take tough action against Tehran.

“Fifteen months into his administration, Iran has faced no significant consequences for continuing with its uranium-enrichment programme, despite two deadlines set by Obama, which came and went without anything happening,” the former official, who was speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Times. “Now it may be too late to stop Iran from becoming nuclear-capable.”
One more way that Obama instills anything but confidence in allies like Israel.
And I doubt that the Arab world is too enamored of him either.

Is Russia going to step into the vacuum?
