Cyber Victory in Iran: Nobel Peace Prize for Stuxnet?

I found this interesting. The more I learn about Stuxnet, the more fascinating it gets.
Three attacks on developing nuclear centers have occurred in the world, the most recent scant months ago. It is amazing that the year 2010, pegged universally as crunch time regarding Iran's atomic ambitions, ended with such a whimper, not a bang. It was to be a year characterized ultimately by a crippling counter-blow to Teheran's plans -with nary a peep from the media. No "top 10 stories of 2010" inclusions. Not even a Wiki-leak.
Considering the fact that the destruction of these nuclear centers had such huge implications for the world and that elusive concept dreamed of by so many, "world peace", you would think that these, especially the latest, would garner more attention. Stuxnet has slowed down Iran's dream of nuclear weapons, but not shattered it. Even if Iran's nuclear scientists and technicians are looking over their shoulders on their way to work, they're still plodding ahead.

I have to assume though, that Israel and other concerned parties are working on other ways to slow down the Iranian nuclear nightmare.
