Not only does Iran have confirmed nuclear capabilities, but the country also has the ability to supply them to other regimes--potentially an even greater, imminent global threat.

He draws on the current crisis in Syria, an indicator of the devastating potential of just one nation's chemical capabilities. A Time to Attack provides an authoritative account of the history of Iran's nuclear program and the international community's attempts to stop it, explains and assesses the options available to policymakers, and reflects on what the resolution of the Iranian nuclear challenge will mean for the future of international order.
