Can a nuclear Iran and war be stopped?

Prophecy Sign:  The coming prophetic Middle-East wars

Can Iran be stopped?  Good question. Certainly when you have an administration in Washington with little backbone and is perceived weak by its adversaries, the answer is NO....Iran will not be stopped....at least by the nations of the world.  God and Israel on the other hand might have something to say about Iran's nuclear program.  In fact a prophecy in Jeremiah is seen by many prophecy experts as pertaining to a future Iran which meets its match and sees its military mainstay, (nuclear program??), wiped out.  An interesting article below from a Israeli newspaper suggests that a recent blast in Iran may have nuclear origins.  Is Israel already at the works in destroying Iran's military mainstay?

This is what the LORD Almighty says: "See, I will break the bow of Elam, (Iran), the mainstay of their might. I will bring against Elam the four winds from the four quarters of heaven; I will scatter them to the four winds, and there will not be a nation where Elam's exiles do not go. Jeremiah 49:35-36 NIV

Can a nuclear Iran and war be stopped?
The world’s attention is focused on Russia, but a critical deadline in the nuclear talks with Iran is fast approaching. On July 20, time will be up — or will it? — for a final deal on Iran’s illicit nuclear program. There is no chance that Iran will agree to dismantle its program, send out its nuclear materials and come into full compliance with United Nations resolutions. For one thing, the Obama administration is no longer demanding it do so. Instead of dismantling the heavy-water Arak plant, now there’s talk about “re-purposing” it. Instead of eliminating the potential for a bomb, Secretary of State John F. Kerry speaks about allowing a break-out period of six to 12 months. Observing President Obama’s aversion to strong action (e.g. tolerating Syria’s chemical weapons, failing to stop Russia’s takeover of Crimea), the mullahs no doubt are confident that there is little downside for them if they don’t make a deal that would impair their nuclear weapons capability. 

Netanyahu, after meeting Rice: Israel fears 'bad deal' on Iran
The meeting between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and visiting U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice in Jerusalem on Wednesday demonstrates the extent of Israel's difference of opinion with the Obama administration over the Iranian nuclear issue. Rice stressed during the meeting that the U.S. administration believes diplomacy is the best way to stop Iran’s nuclear program. The Prime Minister's Bureau did not release details of Netanyahu's own comments to Rice, but an hour after the meeting sent out quotes of the prime minister's remarks on the matter in a meeting with members of Friends of the IDF – U.S. , in which he declared Israel's concern that a "bad deal" in the making. The bureau's statement, released in Hebrew, quotes emphasizing to the audience Israel's stance that Iran must not be allowed to create an atomic weapon. The Islamic Republic currently has thousands of centrifuges and thousands of kilograms of enriched uranium, with which a bomb could be created. "A bad deal will enable them to preserve this capability," Netanyahu said, according to the Hebrew statement. "It would be better not to reach an agreement at all than to reach a bad agreement," the bureau quoted him as saying.

Immense Explosion in Iran May Have Nuclear Origins
An immense explosion has been heard throughout the northern Iranian city of Qazvin, semi-official Fars news agency reported, and many casualties are expected from the blast. Around 1.1 million people live in the city, which is located about 100 miles north of Tehran
The blast may be related to nuclear development in Iran, according to the Los Angeles Times. Iranian officials in the past have strongly denied claims by Mujahedin Khalq Organization, or MKO, a cult-like Iranian exile group, that it has a secret nuclear enrichment facility in Abyek, near the major city, according to the daily. 
The source of the blast remains undetermined. Several mystery explosions have been reported in the past several years in the region, none of which were ever verified. 
A fire has now broken out in the city, local reports say, and as many as 50 people are injured. State media blames an oil depot for the blast. State news agency IRNA reports that firefighters are on the scene. "Firefighters are trying to prevent the spread of the fire at a car oil storage facility," Ali Mohammad Ahani, the director general of Qazvin governor's disaster management authority, stated. Ahani added that no reports of casualties have been recorded.
