The choice has been made and they are preparing the way for war. International pressures on Tehran over its nuclear programme have brought Iran to the threshold of an entirely new phase in its post-revolutionary history. The Iranian regime is no stranger to outside forces; the US has sustained a virtually uninterrupted political, economic and technological blockade against it since the 1979 revolution. However, never before has it confronted an international community so unanimously and determinedly ranged against it. It now appears almost inevitable that the nuclear issue will be brought before the UN Security Council and that Iran, for the first time in its history, will face punitive measures.
