Official: Iran "not likely" to have nuclear capabilities by 2010


news.xinhuanet.com

JERUSALEM, Sept. 15 (Xinhua) -- Iran is "not likely" to obtain nuclear capabilities by 2010, an Israeli military intelligence official said Monday.

"The most optimistic scenario as far as the Iranians are concerned is that they will have obtained nuclear capabilities by 2010. However, such a scenario is not likely," Yossi Baidatz, head of the research division of Israeli military intelligence, was quoted by local daily Yedioth Ahronoth as saying.

All we hear about in the enws is the drums of war between Israel and Iran. I've seen many predictions that things will be starting soon, with evidence like the recent deal with the US on bunker busting bombs.

And with all this even Israeli intelligence admits that Iran is not likely to get the bomb for at least 2 more years! It's hard to see through the propaganda but snippets like this help.

Boy that was sly..
Did you see it?.. lets read it again


The most optimistic scenario as far as the Iranians are concerned is that they will have obtained nuclear capabilities 'in around 15 months'


6 months ago, it was 5 yrs
12 months ago, it was 5-10yrs

NOW, its a year and a quater until they 'could' have nuclear weapons.

2010 looks a long way away, but dont be fooled.

Running smoothly, 3,000 centrifuges could produce enough nuclear material for a bomb within 18 months.



The document said Iran was now either fully or partially operating nearly 4,000 centrifuges at its cavernous underground facility at Natanz. Beyond those machines, which spin uranium gas into enriched uranium, it was testing 12 more advanced prototypes at its above-ground experimental site at Natanz, a city about 300 miles south of Tehran.


The advanced centrifuges can enrich uranium several times faster than the current ones, apparently.


What will happen next, anyway? Will there be any more sanctions? The Russians have said a fourth round of sanctions would be 'unacceptable.' They'll veto it.
