wavyiranianflagthumb Analysis: Iran's Nuclear Ambitions: A Steady Crawl to Breakout Capability 15 Nov 2011 by Professor Malcolm Chalmers, Andrea Berger
The International Atomic Energy Agency's latest report on Iran describes in unprecedented detail a country moving slowly towards a nuclear weapons option, rather than a bomb itself. This lack of a 'smoking gun' removes military response from the international community's toolbox of policy options. But this is no grounds for complacency.

kingabdullahthumb Analysis: The Death of Crown Prince Sultan: What next for the House of Saud? 24 Oct 2011 by Michael Stephens, Dr David Roberts
The death of the long-serving Defence Minister ushers in a long-overdue process of succession. While there may be concerns over the role of the likely Crown Prince, Nayef bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud, we should not expect a massive change in direction of Saudi policy in the region.

ahmedinejad abdullah thumb Analysis: Has Iran Provided the Justification for War? 18 Oct 2011 by Dr David Roberts
Iran is accused of attempting to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador to the United States on American soil. It is the stuff of spy thrillers. If proved true, then both Saudi Arabia and the United States are well within their rights to declare war on Iran. Why would Iran embark on such an irrational action at a time of great internal and external vulnerability? Middle East and North Africa Iran
wavyiranianflagthumb Analysis: Iran alleged Saudi plot promotes a dialogue of the deaf 18 Oct 2011
