Generally believed they have between 50 and 140 warheads - 85 "at ready" is a number I read quite often.
An EMP-type strike from sub-launched nukes (from Indian ocean?) may make it hard to finger Israel as the "culprit".
Iran goes dark - could have been the Saudi's using Ukranian nukes for all they know......

It will take about ten minutes to know where ANY nuke originates. Each type has a signature.
And if an EMP is used, the retaliation will not be at Tel Aviv, it will be at NY...or just the US in general. (Wishful thinking would be DC.). In any event, we need to think these things through before being cheerleaders.
And yes, I think Iran must be prevented from getting nuclear capabilities.
