Unfortunately, the U.S. and Iran's decision to extend their nuclear talks with a new deadline of June, 2015, will only give Iran the opportunity to further its nuclear and ballistic missile programs unhindered ("Keep talking with Iran," Nov. 24).
The next seven months will allow Iran to get closer to developing nuclear weapons and at the same time profit from the partial lifting of sanctions — some $700 million a month in unfrozen assets.
Iran is stringing us along to the dismay of our allies in the region. Israel will have no option but to try to impede the Iranian nuclear and missile program, while Arab states that feel threatened will be tempted to initiate their own nuclear programs or else purchase nuclear weapons elsewhere.
