Iran and the Bomb

Click! Another minute goes by in the countdown to the Russian/Islamic war against Israel. But this is a big minute. It was revealed today on http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-16470100 that Iran has begun enriching uranium to 20%. While not weapons-grade, 20% is a big step in that direction and is considered a major provocation by the UN.

James Reynolds reported: “It has been built underground and it is heavily fortified. In particular, Iran appears to want to guard against potential air strikes. Military experts suggest that the facility may be able to survive attack from all but the most powerful bombs.” If it’s for peaceful purposes why the great expense of building it under a mountain and the excessive military protection?

The problem here is that if Israeli’s Mossad cannot find a way to destroy the facility from within, Israel may have to blow it to hell with ‘the most powerful bombs’. Being very near the Muslim ‘holy city’ of Qom, this could result in provoking all Islam to rise against Israel.

Will Israel wait until they start producing weapons-grade plutonium? It may depend on how good their intelligence is. They may be able to hold out until sanctions cause the Iranian people to turn on their fanatic Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and his equally fanatical President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Iranians are technologically savvy and the Arab Spring could blossom very quickly there.
