There are unconfirmed reports Iran has agreed to halt its uranium enrichment program in exchange for Western economic cooperation. Iran will place on freeze on further work in the area of possible development of nuclear weapons. The Iranian government is responding to a western proposal which offered ending economic sanctions and other incentives for an Iranian agreement. However, the American government is supposedly concerned that Israel might do something foolish such as attack Iranian nuclear facilities, an action that would doom negotiations with Iran.
Admiral Mullen has urged Israel not to do anything that would further destabilize the region. Hopefully, wise heads will listen to this sound advice.
