Not being a diplomat I don't have a clear answer to the looming Iran problem but as a long time student of War and as I see it if we do nothing chances are we are going to be hit hard by What will be characterized as a terrorist act but it will be the opening shot of a wider War to come.
We need to keep a close watch on North Korea who was reported to be working on a compact Nuclear devise, and insure there is no shipments between these two renegade Countries.
It is also clear that any alliance of several former Soviet nations Iran and China to form a united front against the West is extremely problematic and would if it happens make any attack on Iran into a much wider War in minutes resulting in a Nuclear exchange.
It would also mean the Israel would be hit, if not by the other, but by Iran.
This is not good news by ant stretch.

In a summit declaration signed by all the member states, the organization also attacked missile defence programs in another apparent dig at the United States.
