El Baradei: Iran far from acquiring nuclear weapon

Babak Yektafar: El Baradei's statement will not change minds of those who want to confront Iran

This week, chief of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Mohamed El Baradei stated that Iran lacks the materials to develop a nuclear weapon.  Even if Iran removes itself from the Non-Proliferation Treaty, El Baradei said it will not have enough low-enriched uranium to create a weapon.

This information contrasts a recent report by the US' National Intelligence Estimate that claims Iran is 'years away' from acquiring nuclear weapons.  A statement acknowledged by the United Nations, the European Union and the United States.

The RealNews spoke with Babak Yektafar, editor-in-chief at the washingtonprism.org.  Yektafar thinks the US should distinguish its problems with Iran as being either nuclear or regime-related.  If the US is truly concerned with Iran's nuclear capabilities, Yektafar says this can be solved without the 'hoopla'.  Iran, he argues, should be treated by the US as a country, and not as the illegitimate state it is framed to be.
