EVENT: Iran: The Timebomb – Expert Panel Discussion, Monday, Nov 18

The U.S. Institute for Science and International Security has found that Iran could “break out” and produce a nuclear bomb with its existing centrifuges and uranium stockpiles in as little as one month. Talks between Iran and the six Western powers continue, while centrifuges continue to whirl.

What should the U.S. do now? What should Israel do now?

Join us as our three panelists., experts in their respective fields, discuss these issues. J.E. Dyer discusses the strategic considerations in the Middle East. Elan Journo discusses the issues from the U.S. perspective. Rick Richman discusses the issues from the Israeli perspective.

Followed by what we anticipate will be a spirited discussion with the audience.
