But of course it is about the number of centrifuges needed to make the 20% enriched uranium for research reactors. So what is it going to be if they had 20,000 centrifuges you would be claiming they had far more than they needed for the research reactors and obviously they are trying to build a bomb. The number is irrelevant. They are obviously interested in making a bomb. Call me when they violate the NPT and we’ll take them out. I actually don’t think they will but we are their enemy and all of this BS keeps the west at arms length from Iran, which is just what the clerics want. My fantasy about this is Iran’s nuclear program is taken out and that Iran is able to blow up a few of Israel’s nuclear facilities – then we can listen to Israel deny they have a nuclear program as they try to clean up a major nuclear accident

When your Geroge W Bush, on record, had clearly decepted the whole world including you yourself, to justify a war against Irag, where were you and your other Knights brotherhood? The whole world knew about this and yet the so-called civilized and democratic world dare not to challnege him and his government on this. The way I see it, you and those who had kept their silence on this, are just the lapdogs (and will always be) who will only bark when the master tell so! It seems to me that Most of hose 32 years of your has been spent as a well-paid obedient lapdog and will continue in many more years to come!

Mr. Elsner: you are a coward. Shame on you for being such a obvious government mouthpiece. None of your articles are based on reality and you know nothing of history or politics the people who hired you and the people who gave you a college degree should be fired.

How’s that working out for ya?

US General Dempsey told CNN “True, Israel could bomb Iran and delay the country’s ability to create nuclear weapons “probably for a couple of years.” Precisely how Iran would chose to respond to a strike is “the question with which we all wrestle,” Dempsey said, “and the reason we think that it’s not prudent at this point to decide to attack Iran.”

The problem is that many of the Iranian targets – buried deeply underground – would be “beyond the reach” of the Israeli military, in what Dempsey called a “zone of immunity.”

What’s more, Iran would likely retaliate by closing the Strait of Hormuz using mines and swarming boats. It might also activate proxy cells to attack not just Israel, but possibly US interests in Iraq or US troops in Afghanistan.

“I’m confident that they [Israel] understand our concerns that a strike at this time would be destabilizing and wouldn’t achieve their long-term objectives,” Dempsey said.

“The agency assesses Iran as unlikely to initiate or intentionally provoke a conflict,” he said, concluding that though the possibility of Iran building a nuclear weapon is “technically feasible,” it is “practically not likely.”

“Speaking during a conference in Tel Aviv on Wednesday, Dagan continued his public rejection of a military move against Iran, saying that Israel didn’t “have the capability to stop the Iranian nuclear program, only to delay it.”

“If anyone seriously considers [a strike] he needs to understand that he’s dragging Israel into a regional war that it would not know how to get out of. The security challenge would become unbearable,” Dagan said.”

It seems like if anyone would understand this situation, it would be Meir Dagan.
