nope, IAEA has not been able to find anything out and their latest diplo-speak shows there are still problems with transparency. Russia and China are just big chimps selling as much as they can to folks like Iran and Myanmar and North Korea.Anyway, I don't think the US is going in for a variety of reasons, but yeah, the Turkey thing is also of concern. Finally, the Iranians themselves have been asking a lot of questions lately and it is not all rosy in central park these days. Gas is getting very expensive despite the high oil income they receive and young folks are starting to ask a lot more questions about the present foreign policy. My bet is that any action would come from Israel, but even they are not that stupid. Syria is a different story.Lot's of actors here.
When did the IAEA confirm Iranian non-cooperation in its latest report then ? Of course Russia and China are looking out for their interests toward Iran because it's in their own backyard and it's a highly strategic piece, most especially when the war on Iraq destabilized the region since 2003. And I might add that your comment applies as much to the other three powers that also have good relations with other repressive regimes on any given issue. What's your point ??
And I will agree that people in Iran are generally fed up with the ruling clerics, but any strike on Iran's nuclear facilities even though there is absolutely no evidence of a nuclear weapons program - will most likely rally the population behind the Ayatollahs. You only have to look at Hezbollah's standing in the Mid East after the war in 2006. And a full scale war against the Syrians will not help the entire situation just like a Turkish war in northern Iraq won't either.
