A Nuclear Iran: Part 3

CNN's Christiane Amanpour on conclusions about Iran's nuclear program.

by David Molko, CNN Senior Producer

What do we really know about the Iranian nuclear threat?  Iran says it wants the right to have its peaceful nuclear program formally recognized.  But from the outside, Iran has long given the impression it has something to hide.  And fear that Iran may soon have the capability to build a nuclear weapon, has spurred talk of a need to take action, even suggestions of a pre-emptive strike against Iran by Israel or the United States.  But is that fear based on fact?

CNN's Christiane Amanpour presents what you need to know about Iran, the threat of war over its nuclear program, and the path forward.  From murky evidence of weapons testing, to the uncertain intentions of its leaders, we find out from those who know the most: the experts.

If Iran decided to produce weapon-grade uranium, how long would it take to make enough for a bomb, and when would the world know?  If Israel were to send fighter jets to bomb the Natanz or Fordo enrichment sites, what damage could they do?  What the experts know and what they don’t know, may surprise you.

And what exactly does Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, mean when he declares the pursuit of nuclear weapons to be a “great sin?”  How would Iran respond to an act of aggression by the West?   And is there hope for a diplomatic solution?  One expert explains why no U.S. President has been able to come to terms with the Islamic Republic.  And a long-time adviser to the Supreme Leader reveals Iran’s bottom line.
