as i have allready stated - 2 point hollow pit implosion devices are NOTHING like new.
the USA had them in 1945 - with FAT MAN.
Israeli analysts say the country is finalising its plans to attack Iran if necessary.
Dr Ronen Bergman, author of The Secret War With Iran, said if current trends continue, an Israeli strike will be inevitable.
"If history continues on its current path - yes, at the end of the day, Israel will attack," he said.
"The Iranians have expressed no willingness to stop the project. They see it as a necessity as an insurance policy for the regime to have the bomb."
The challenges of carrying out such a strike 1,000 miles from home against well-defended, deeply-buried nuclear facilities are considerable.
But so are the risks - Israel could expect a counter attack from Iranian allies, Hizbollah and Hamas, and terrorist attacks worldwide.
It would incur the wrath of America and the condemnation of European allies.
It would also risk handing Iran the moral high ground and giving the Islamic Republic an excuse for pursuing the bomb in earnest.
But observers in the Middle East believe all those considerations are secondary to the Israeli government's top priority.

You war-mongers can go it alone, just be content with the idea of Americans NOT helping you... and I hope you DO get destroyed for attacking a sovereign country. Just like you were beaten in 2006 for trying to invade Lebanon.

WASHINGTON – Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei yesterday called on Muslim nations around the world to unite militarily in response to the imminent coming of Islam's messianic savior – the Mahdi.
Khamenei, through his spokesman Ali Saeedi, specifically beckoned the nations of Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan and Afghanistan to join together with Iran in preparation for the Mahdi's soon coming.
We have to train honest forces that can stop the obstacles that may hinder the coming of the Mahdi like the United States and Israel," Saeedi stated. Saeedi also emphasized that the Iranian revolutionary guard possessed a special religious authority to prepare the way for the Mahdi.

It also risks giving a desperate & dying regime a rope to cling onto as they are falling over the edge of an abyss.

Do you really think Iran wants to nuke Israel? Yes, yes. Great idea. "Let's nuke Israel, thereby distroying the third holiest place in Islam and probably killing lots and lots and lots of Palestinians!"
Not at all counter-intuitive.
every single time the UN has been to iran
yes i totally agree - its sad to see the zionist regime once again staring at teh abyss - why do these genocidal zionists want to drag to there doom the true followers of judaism.

So far nobody has explained what the mullahs would gain by rendering muslim holy land radioactive and killing the people they want to liberate. It's a silly made up threat.
What do they gain by bashing poor innocent Iranian girls over the head with batons??? Please, you cannot use logic and reason with extremists, but what the regime would love now is a distraction from these internal issues that will never be resolved because this regime has no chance of survival when it treats its own people in this way.
Who says Hezbollah or Hamas have to use nuclear weapons against Israel. What about chemical or biological weapons that Iran also has at its disposal?
I've seen Seattle PD, Chicago PD and LAPD bashing poor american girls over the head with batons... should there be un sanctions against the heartless mullahs who rule these rogue cities?
Besides that the usa tortures people now... nobody in our govt can say she-it to iran about human rights.
Irans chemical / biological weapons wont stop at the border and would certainly harm just as many, if not more palestinians...
Once again, what motivation do irans leaders have to unleash "WMDs" against muslim holy land, and muslim people?
