Iranian College Students Begin Human Shield Duty

In Iran, college students have begun human shield duty around the Isfahan reactor. This is because of an expectation of an attack from the Israel or the U.S. that may come very soon, perhaps in weeks.

The story about the world concern over the Iranian reactor's enrichment of uranium is a major story worldwide, but not in the United States.

With many college students supporting a nuclear future for Iran, the support for proreform efforts has waned in Iran, where many students would sign up for war against the U.S. and Israel.

With a hardline government in Iran, and support for reform quickly waning, an environment that could lead to serious war may come sooner rather than later.
