IRAN - THE SPECTRE OF WAR

Apparently month by month, experts chart how Iran installs more centrifuges inside its underground plant in Natanz, where these machines are used to enrich uranium. This highly sensitive process, which breaches five UN Resolutions, could be used either to produce fuel for nuclear power stations – or the essential material for an atomic bomb.

The nuclear issue here as in North Korea is threatening to destabilise world peace, either directly or through the development of the terrorist's capacity to devastate.

However we must be clear about what the volatile elements are. Thankfully Barak Obama is continuing his reconciliatory rhetoric. There is a great need for sensitive and respectful diplomacy and the requirement to understand the cultural and historical differences that exist between nations and their peoples.

Only then will we progress towards peace and overcome the darkness that looms only too near.
