FILE- In this April, 9, 2007, file photo, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaks at a ceremony in Iran's nuclear enrichment facility in Natanz, south of capital Tehran, Iran. President Barack Obama’s reluctance to give military aid to Syrian rebels may be simply explained in part in three words: Iranian nuclear weapons. For the first time in years, the United States has seen a glimmer of hope in persuading Iran to curb its nuclear enrichment program so it cannot quickly or easily make an atomic bomb. But Tehran is unlikely to bend to Washington’s will on its nuclear program if it is battling American-supplied rebels at the same time in Syria, where Iranian forces are believed to be fighting alongside the Assad regime’s army.
