What's Happening In Iran?!
At the same time the bad weather could affect the launch. On January 15 about 50 Iranians were on their way home and got stranded after being freed by Syrian rebels. The authorities traded 2,000 prisoners for the 48 captives to be set free. Winds in Iran won't allow the prisoners to leave and go home to their families that they haven't seen in a long time. They're hoping to get back as soon as possible.
In other news four U.S. non-proliferation specialists are persuading the Obama administration to suggest stronger economic sanctions against Iran and have more threats to destroy their nuclear program with military means.

The specialists are telling Iran to freeze its nuclear-related work or else they will proceed with the threat. What will they do? We have to wait and see.
