ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Iranian nuclear program. The author investigates on how Israel and the United States could neutralize the dispersed Iranian nuclear capability. He provides possible attack scenarios but opines that what really matters for any strike on Iran's nuclear-enrichment facilities is the cooperation of the U.S. He warns that Iran could strike targets including Israel and the U.S., but cautions that any attack made on Iran could have an effect on the Muslim World.
