Iran's Nuclear Program: "They Can Set Off A Bomb Within Six Months"
Stern ^ | July 15, 2009

Posted on 07/15/2009 7:27:56 AM PDT by Strategy

Iran will soon be able to produce atomic bombs and to perform underground nuclear testing, just as North Korea has done, experts in the German Foreign Intelligence Service (BND) have told the weekly, Hamburg-based news magazine stern. "If they want to, they will be able to set off a uranium bomb within six months," a BND-expert is quoted in the latest edition of stern magazine to be published on Thursday.

Perhaps they're waiting for our Dear Leader to have one of those nice little chats & clear up all this nonsence?

Much as I was not a fan of Rronald Reagan, we could use his leadership right about now. I think that the Wussie in Chief won’t lift a finger against these tyrants because he just loves dictators. He doesn’t care about the well being and safety of our country.

Israel can give the world an early Christmas Gift by taking out the serial wanna be killers in Iran and their nuclear toys.

Why did Bush, with years to act and thousands of advanced warplanes and complete escalation dominance, do nothing?

Moral cowardice in the face of senseless partisan criticism by self loathing fools. Same answer.

They first need to prepare a distraction to keep Bam and the boys occupied so they don’t gum up the works once they are airborne. Apparently the diversion is not ready yet.

Time for another UN conference. Maybe they can pass another resolution next year or so. Put Biden on it.

Which means they can potentially hit NY from the inside within a year.

That’s my concern also. Manhattan is an island, and any boat with a nuke aboard (even a “small” one) could do tremendous damage without even touching land.

This scenario has been widely discussed already; I hope the authorities are prepared for it - and not prevented by Obama administration regulations from acting in time.

Well I guess we are gonna find out if they are willing risk annihilation to strike Israel. And given our current President, I’m glad Israel has their own nukes.

Right now the ruling class of Iran is divided and fighting amongst themselves, if Israel strikes they will unify the country behind Ahmadinejad.

They are fighting amongst themselves, but it is not over their nuke program, the Islamist part of their government or threats to Israel. Mousavi is the same threat to Israel.

That is why this massive Westerner support for the “revolution” will add up to nothing. As soon as Israel does what is best for the world and strikes, they will unite like you said.

I thought they already did an underground nuke test earlier this year.

Or was that one of their airliners going in?

If true, an Israeli strike would be moot.

How will the Israeli attack affect us here? Higher gas prices, for one thing.

Yes, yes, yes.

But the key question remains: Tel Aviv or Washington?

Biden and 0bama will say go ahead. I cannot believe the times we are living in. It is frightening.

Information from "Der Stern" should always be taken with a grain of salt:

They won't waste one by testing it underground.

If that happens then Israel will have two things:
A bunch of enriched uranium to clean up;
All the proof they need to take out Iran's facilities (and some to spare).

The better use of nuclear weapons from Iran's perspective is blackmail and it is already working even without a test.
