CIA: Iran capable of producing nukes


www.washingtontimes.com

Iran is poised to begin producing nuclear weapons after its uranium program expansion in 2009, even though it has had problems with thousands of its centrifuges, according to a newly released CIA report.

"Iran continues to develop a range of capabilities that could be applied to producing nuclear weapons, if a decision is made to do so," the annual report to Congress states.

A U.S. official involved in countering weapons proliferation said the Iranians are "keeping the door open to the possibility of building a nuclear weapon."

Ya this reminds me of something/ hmmm what was it? oh ya that right when they also claimed that Sudam has nukes. Did he? nope nope nope I do not think so. I do not know if they have nuke but you know what these news agencies have lost all credibility in my book. That is what i for one think. i mean for all we know they may indeed have nuks but to be totally candid here it is like the boy who cries nuke people

I have to ask the question: why wouldn't Iran want nukes? If you were in the Middle East and you just saw Iraq being attacked why the heck wouldn't you want nukes? If I was in the Middle East and I was a oil-rich dictator I know that the first thing I would do would be to build my defenses and get a nuke as a deterrent.

And secondly, it's not like Iran would get that far with 1950 nuclear technology. Israel could easily obliterate Iran in a nuclear war if it happened. So I really don't see what people are getting so angst about.

Now hold on a minute, this isn't the Bush Administration, it's the Obama administration, so you've got a little problem there.
It's the Obama administration that has put out this latest information, not the Bush administration... heh

So what do you make of that? The Obama administration allowing an editorial claiming Iran can build nukes if it chooses to, was released...

I think CIA got furious with WikiLeaks' europe document leak and the April 5 video and started an information war to distract the public!

Machiavelli's mediaeval tactic is being put to use!

You don't understand Israel's mindset. They have a zero tolerance policy towards their enemies developing nuclear weapons. Would you expect them to sit back and wait until Iran DID have enough nukes to challenge them? Israel's nukes are its "failsafe" protection - if any of their enemies develop nukes then they lose that protection. The typical M.A.D. scenario doesn't work in the Middle East.
