This article discusses the options available to the U.S. on how to deal with Iran's refusal to abandon its nuclear weapons program. It explains that the pace and direction of international negotiations suggest that Iran will not give up voluntarily its nuclear program. It refutes the idea held by neoconservatives in the U.S. that a regime change in Iran will lead the country to abandon its nuclear program. It reveals that Iran's nuclear ambition precedes the current clerical regime.
