Quick Iran note
Israel's seizure of an Iranian shipment of weapons to Hizbullah is likely to put further pressure on Iran as it continues negotiations with the P5+1 over the country's nuclear program. Combined with today's protests marking the anniversary of the attack on the U.S. embassy in Iran, the government has looked fairly weak. It remains to be seen, however, if the West will be able to wield enough leverage over Iran to hash out a deal which is reasonable to both sides.
