We can't take the nuculer ball off the table. That nut in Tehran thinks he's the antichrist. He wants to reduce the world to rubble. All the diplomats know this and have been working feverishly toward a peaceful outcome but that is not the only timeline. There is another line that begins and ends with Irans intentions towards Israel and the west and it's ability to render harm. If one line happens before the other a peaceful solution it will be but if Tehran wins the race it may be the end of the world as we know it.

Hello? No. It appears to me that Bush fears disobeying the puppet masters more than he fears God. Sadly. Otherwise, he'd treat Israel much better. He'd seal our borders.

Perhaps you haven't heard of 9/11?
And, there's persistent reports of at least one, at least dirty nuke, that has been PREVENTED from being lit off WITHIN OUR COUNTRY the last few years and maybe one even during Clinton's reign.
THEY are HERE with plenty of horrid weapons itching to set them off any day.
Pretending otherwise will not make them go away. Denying will not make us safer. APPEASEMENT HAS NEVER EVER WORKED throughout recorded history.

US in first place, people do something about yout corrupt gov, we here in Europe have no impact on your gov policy, hope you will help the world and confront your representatives with these real end-world-projections.
Just a thought, but if women were running the whole show instead of we testosterone based version of the life-form I doubt we'd be in this mess quite so badly with fewer and fewer alternatives. Perhaps not.

Does make me wonder if it is the media who is opting for a war or manipulating war fear for political purposes, rather than the current administration.
Despite Denials, U.S. Plans for Iran War
The U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) has been conducting theater campaign analysis for a full scale war with Iran since at least May 2003, responding to Pentagon directions to prepare for potential operations in the "near term."

That fuel rods are 8% min spec, I have no idea - I'm not particularly concerned about fuel rods at this time just nuclear weapons and their use to kill humans.
Now the scary part - take any HEU say a 5 Kg chunk and machine it to a shperical/round or lenticular shape held in the centre of a sealed metal tube. Put 2 pistons (think automobile without the con rods and crank) at either end of the sealed tube and backed by exactly the same amount cordite/TNT or semtek/C4, and fronted or topped by a concave reverse-hemispherical shape that faces the sphere of HEU and matches exactly the contour of the HEU sphere/round/lenticular shape, plasma coat the piston crowns with polonium and you have a crude nuke that could not cause great explosive damage but could contaminate a potentially large area and kill a great many. Way too simple. The hard part is the Polonium procurement - everything else is 50 year old well-understood common manufacturing techniques.
