Beijing, Nov.9 (People's Daily Online) --The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is scheduled to release the latest report on Iran’s nuclear program on Nov. 9, the results of which could be the prelude to a new war in the Middle East.

It is said that the report will disclose "more details" about Iran's research and development of nuclear weapons. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned on Nov. 7 that if the IAEA became a tool of the United States, it would lose its little remaining credibility. Meanwhile, Iranian political leaders, including President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, said that Iran remains ready to fight against invaders.

Western intelligence agencies have shown that Iran is breaking through a "nuclear blockade" imposed by countries, including the United States, and is "very close" to the "nuclear threshold" that would allow it to challenge U.S. "nuclear hegemonic" status. This is why the United States and Israel are busy preparing for the use of military force against Iran.

Furthermore, Iran and the United States can find little common ground in terms of values and ideologies, and the United States has attached particular importance to Iran's major strategic and geopolitical position and rich resources, such as oil and natural gas. Against such a backdrop, the United States, urged by Israel as Iran’s long-term opponent, appears to be very close to making a final resolution and decision.

If the US and Israel decide to attack Iran, I would love to see Iran win with China and Russia helping and resupplying. I hope Turkey helps also. Israel needs to disappear. The USA needs to be humiliated, bankrupted, and turned inward so it can′t bother other countries for a long time.
