Bullcrap. 2-3 inmho. Forget the 5-8. Two years, maybe three.
If you take this title and plug it in the FR search engine and check out the results,, there are threads saying 2-3 years ago from 2 and 3 years ago. ;-)
I’m sure Ahmabadpatootiepie will let us know when it’s soup... if he doesn’t get tossed out of office before then.
I'm leaning towards 1 to 2 years myself. Don't forget when we built the first atomic weapons it took us 5 years from scratch. We did not have an ample supply of nuclear enrichment facilities, reactors, scientists skilled in this field or anything else. Iran is building its nukes with the help of Russkie expertise and equipment. I find it hard to imagine that they don't have a weapon at the moment.
