As US president Barack Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney prepared for their duel on foreign policy in Long Island, Tuesday night Oct. 16, Iran moved was on the move to present them with an accomplished fact: Its nuclear program's high-speed uranium enrichment plant has now been entirely sequestered in the fortified underground Fordo site near Qom, debkafiles intelligence sources report.
On Iran, the differences between President Obama and Mitt Romney are significantly nuanced: Obama pledges not to let Iran acquire a nuclear weapon, i.e., build a bomb, whereas Romney promises to prevent Iran acquiring a nuclear capability, i.e., attain the capacity for building one a point which US intelligence believes will upon us in six months.
This estimate may not fully take into account Irans accelerating momentum. With the advanced IR-2 and IR-4 centrifuges, its enrichment plants can turn out more 20 percent enriched uranium at greater speed than ever before and so reach Iran's one-ton target before then.

We can’t switch jackasses in the middle of a war!
Israel would be insane to trust 0bama’s judgment in any action against Iran, based on his fueling of MB hatred for the U.S. and his stoking the rioters in the ME by constantly mentioning ‘the movie’. Israel, I say go it alone and you’ll be better off. If any of our F22 pilots were ordered to hinder Israel, I hope they have ‘technical difficulties’ and have to turn back, which they will.
It is Debka, but the real reason Iran’s Shia face what to them appears to be an existential threat from the aggressive and militant Sunni Muslims surrounding them is Jimmy Carter’s folly.
The current ME instability is a direct outgrowth of Carter’s imbecility and liberal worldview. Sadly over 40 years later we’re still dealing with the Mess that Jimmy Made.
That’s right Mullahs, bunch those targets nice
and close, it will save us on bombs.
Nuke them, and often.
