Amano heightened tensions further. He repeated previous false charges. He claims Iran's Parchin facility covertly conducts suspect explosives tests. He implied nuclear related ones. 

Panchin is a conventional military site. Washington and Israel have similar ones. IAEA reports ignore them. They say nothing about the nuclear menace both nations represent.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Washington is "closely studying the details of (the IAEA) report, but broadly speaking it is not surprising that Iran is continuing to violate its obligations."

An unnamed Israeli official said Amano's new report "corroborates what (Netanyahu) has been saying for years."

US Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey downplays an Iranian risk. "I don't want to be complicit" if Israel attacks Iran, he said. He repeated the same sentiment earlier.

Attacking Iran's nuclear sites will delay, not destroy, its program, he believes. He added that he's unaware of Tehran's nuclear ambitions. Intelligence suggests no weapons development activities.

Dempsey represents Obama's position. Expect eventual war on Iran. It's longstanding US policy. Washington and Israel disagree on timing. Expect no hints until post-November. Electoral priorities come first. So does ousting Assad and isolating the Islamic Republic.

Washington's war on Syria rages. NAM's final document highlights mutual cooperation, resolving the Syrian conflict, Iran's legitimate nuclear program, Palestine, and world peace. Key is whether rhetoric becomes policy.
