The US developed the Atom bomb from a theory and from scratch in three years. Iran and North Korea have had the assistance of the Pakistanis, Indians, Russians and the German and sellout US physicists. The U-235 purification plants have been operable for over a year whereas at Oak Ridge it took a year for just one bomb and that was using archaic separation methods. A person would have to be just ignorant to not believe that Iran does not have a bomb at this very moment.
The Russians have been helping Iran build their nuclear program since the early ‘90s. I cannot believe they do not have nuclear capability.
Within two days there have been two 4.4 magnitude “earthquakes” in Iran.
What kind of magnitude did the Soviet / Chicom underground tests generate, I wonder?
Can we calculate approximately how many megatons yield we’re dealing with here?
It might be illustrative to have an expert seismologist examine the seismic “signature” of these quakes and compare them to known “natural” earthquakes.
HowStuffWorks “How do scientists determine if a nuclear blast
> “There’s actually a whole network of 500 seismograph stations positioned around the world whose job is to report ground-shaking incidents, and that includes any evidence of bomb blasts. NPR’s “Detecting Underground Nuclear Blasts” reports that the seismic activity recorded on Monday indicated a ground disturbance that would be the equivalent of a 4.2 magnitude earthquake. That magnitude indicates a blast with about a 1-kiloton yield, which is equal to the power of 1,000 tons of TNT.Figuring out if a seismic event is an earthquake or a bomb blast is relatively easy. Scientists perform analyses of wave patterns that can accurately confirm an earthquake-versus-explosion determination.”
I’ll bet someone in Israel is examining those seismograph signatures pretty closely!
If the Ayatollah has 3 nukes and just successfully tested 2 of them underground, where do you suppose #3 (”Three’s a Charm!”) is going?
Hang on tight, Tel Aviv! Better put your fingers in your ears and sleep in your nuclear fireball resistant pajamas!
Of course if the IDF figures out that Iran is ready to launch, things could get really interesting around Persia any day now.
