It really seems like Bush is stoking the fires for Iran getting Nukes.

First he issues the "Axis of Evil" speech which no doubt made Iran fear being invaded or attacked.

Then yesterday we gave India a free pass on the No Nuke proliferation agreement while warning Iran not to build them....also not helping Pakistan in a similar fashion.

My question is:

Do you think Iran would be pursuing this if it hadn't been for our gov'ts actions?

By the way, the International Crisis Group has an excellent summary of the situation and perhaps a workable solution: delaying Iran's domestic enrichment program for a period of years in return for a reliable off shore source of reactor grade uranium (from Russia).

Iran has already rejected this proposal: link.

Iran has purchased, at great expense, and concealed the centrifuges required to produce weapons grade uranium. They intend to have nuclear weapons and long range missiles to deliver them. How can you “compromise” with a country that is intent on doing exactly what you do not want them to do? Even economic sanctions will not work well since they are a country rich in gas and oil.

I say we let the Europeans carry the ball here.

European diplomats familiar with what Iran has told inspectors in recent days say that the country has already largely built a second "cascade" of 164 centrifuges, matching the one that is already in operation.
