Eye on Iran, Rivals Pursuing Nuclear Power

This piece in the NYT is about a possible nuclear arms race in the middle east. The reporter's sources are primarily anonymous "private analysts" and government officials. The piece is very alluring with a picture of Russia's president, Vladimir Putin alongside King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. The analysts think that the regional powers are clandestinely pursuing nuclear power to get to nuclear weapons in order to offset the balance with Iran's own nuclear ambition. The piece is very informative.
