  The Jane's Intelligence Review, a well-known British journal, has
concluded that Iran is very close to developing a nuclear weapon, MA'ARIV
reported. The report anticipates that Iran will achieve nuclear capabilities
within four months.
  According to the journal, unless Western countries stop the transfer of
highly-enriched uranium to Iran, "the Iranian spiritual leaders will be
capable of implementing their 'atomic revolution' in the very near future."
The report also said that, in the early 1990's, Iraq was on the verge of
developing its first nuclear weapon, but was set back by its loss in the
Gulf War.
