International Security and the Iranian Nuclear Program

Trifunović Darko (PhD, Faculty of Security Studies, Belgrade), galileja@yahoo.com

Iran’s ongoing nuclear development program continues to represent a source of tensions with the international community, despite public pledges that the program is peaceful and would never be used for military purposes. While the media attention focuses on the possible conventional intervention, the Western response, when it comes, might take on the form of special war or subversion within Iran. Yet any form of intervention could have far-reaching consequences, for both the region and the world.
