 Early Warning by William M. Arkin - washingtonpost.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
I know Iran is as much as a decade away from acquiring a nuclear weapon, but the stand-off has also produced its own tensions and thus additional contingency planning.
The claims against Iran are hollow and false, while the U.S. is openly breaching the Non-Proliferation Treaty in regards to developing new nuclear weapons instead of reducing American nuclear weapons.
There is a probability that Iran is very close to building a nuke; there is a probability that they are at least five but less than ten years out; a probability that they are at least ten years out; and a probability that they can/will never build one.

While it is estimated that between 1.2 to 2 million Iranians have diabetes now, the prevalence of DM in different populations in the EMR varied between 4.3% in Egypt to 25.5% in Bahrain.
The wide range obtained from these studies may be explained by the lack of standardization of the blood pressure or plasma glucose measurements, varied definitions, different age groups or sample size of the studied population and finally different dates of the studies.
In summary, our analysis indicates that although there are many reports from EMR countries and Iran concerning the epidemiological views of HTN and DM, it is obvious that still there is more need to conduct a national or regional surveys using highly standardized methodology like the (MONICA model) in a large number of EMR countries.
