DEBKA is not always reliable. What does STRATFOR say?

Whew. If DEBKA says it is, it probably isn't.

Let's hope it goes off as their best Scientists and Technicians try to set it up for the test and takes them and the Lookie-Loo Leadership out all at once.

I believe the source for this story is the same : NCRI/MEK - a terrorist organization that wants to take over in Iran themselves. Though they have given us some good info in the past, (few yrs ago) their information recently on anything really substantial, has not been reliable.

UPI is only slightly more reliable than DEBKA, which ain't saying anything.

SURPRISE! Our stealth bombers just left your airspace...and left you with, as we say in the USA, your pants down.

I love pre-emptive strikes, don't you?

There is a huge difference between a static, underground blast, and a test of a warhead small enough to be carried by a plane, or put in a missile. The real danger is when they get the weapons small enough to deliver with something smaller than a box car.

Israel probably has better intel than the US, on what's going on for real with Iran's nuclear program. For us it is an irritant -- ba large one, but still an irritant. For them, this is life or death. As with the Iraqi nuclear facility that they destroyed in 1981 (right year?), at some point Israel will have to act, regardless of what the US, UN, EU, or any one else is doing. But that time will not come before 20 March.

It appears Ken Timmerman's group (The Foundation for Democracy) is also reporting this.

This seems to be DUMBKA yet again simply repackaging info already publicly reported as supposedly coming from their secret inside sources (which don't exist, as best I can tell.)

That's possible, but if it's before March 20 of this year, I'll eat my hat.

And it's a pretty big hat.

Iran's nuke capability is either a few weeks or few years away, take your pick.

I believe that they could have acquired pre-fabbed, clandestinely built their own AND are working to produce more.

an Iranian underground nuclear blast, which will most probably be attempted on March 22, would turn around the strategic position of all the parties concerned and the Middle East as whole.

Not really, it would instead INSURE a strike on Iran.
