Iran Watch

If you were an ascendant hardliner in Iran, and had recently bamboozled a troika of Euro foreign ministers to buy more time, and the Americans were rushing about hoping against hope to garner the support of an Iranian born Ayatollah in Iraq, might you deem this an opportune time to keep pushing a secret nukes program forward?

Especially as Iran would likely use robust American action in Iran as an excuse to stoke trouble, to the extent they could given residual Iraqi nationalism among Shi'a there, for coalition efforts in the majority Shi'a area of Iraq.
