Throughout the past decade, we’ve seen consistent spikes in the news coverage over Iran’s nuclear program. Yes, it has been a decade since the “full extent” of Iran’s nuclear program was disclosed to the world by an exiled opposition group known as National Council of Resistance of Iran. Tens years later, the truth about Iran’s nuclear program still remains opinionated. Currently, there’s a suggestion that neoconservatives and their media machine are pushing U.S. President Barak Obama’s administration to act against Iran before it’s too late. On the other hand, Obama seems determined to stay put and ensure Israel is restrained from launching a pre-emptive attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities. What is less discussed are the political risks Iran and Israel face in pursuing what many see as their national interests. In other words, would a nuclear weapon really be beneficial for the Islamic Republic? Would the consequences of an Israeli strike improve its security and safeguard its future?
