I am very much interested in how Iran is using proxies within Afghanistan. I would hate to see Afghanistan turn into another Iraq, where the United States cedes control to those funded by a state with which we are not allied.

I am also concerned that the focus of Afghanistan will detract from our need to focus on Iran and the issue of nuclear proliferation. The continuing production of UF6 only brings the world closer to one of two options.

Either the US will have to accept that Iran is a nuclear power or the world will have to take military action prior to that time which the Iranians are capable of producing military weapons from the “civilian” nuclear technology they now possess.

I suspect that the option for Iran to be an accepted nuclear power has been taken off the table.
