If we do this If we decide to attack we have to go all the way. We can just bomb and run, we must educate and reform these countries. Although the task at hand is not easy look at Iraq its still a mess I seriously think it will be another 20 years.

If Iran has the ability to make a nuclear reactor, one would think that they would have the ability to refine oil and make fuel.

Looks like Israel and the US need to make up their minds quick, as the radioactive material is on its way to the reactor. Otherwise, unless they want a radioactive catastrophe, they'll need to call it off
Some how I don't think these sick nut jobs care about nuclear fall out .As a matter of fact I think they have been waiting for it and that has been the delay . They want maximum casualties as we are all unsustainable useless breeders to the elite . They don't care about radiation ,their illegal use of dirty uranium munitions in the middle east proves that .Have you seen the child deformities over there . It's a disgrace that humans can do that to another living thing including each other .They despise us all even their own citizens . A third World War and a culling of the masses is just what they want .
Israeli military and politicians usually equate Iranian access to nuclear fuel for electrical generation with Iran's acquisition of a nuclear weapon. A light water reactor, Bushehr won't be capable of producing weapons grade plutonium (unlike Israel's heavy water reactor at Dimona).
Once Bushehr's nuclear fuel arrives from Russia, whatever military options against Iran that may be "on the table" that include Bushehr will have to come off. Israel and the U.S. have only a few weeks to launch an attack on Iran before Bushehr has the means to begin generating electricity.
IAEA approval of Iran's nuclear energy programme is contingent upon Iran buying its fuel from approved suppliers abroad, and exporting its nuclear waste back to its source so that the radioactive material it contains can't be diverted for use in weapons of mass destruction or fall into the wrong hands. Russia qualifies as an approved supplier[...] He said (Sergei Kiriyenko), "No one is against the development of Iran's civilian nuclear programme; the construction of the Bushehr nuclear power plant is being carried out under the control of the International Atomic Energy Agency."
Why You Can’t Build a Bomb From Spent Fuel
Why do they need Nuclear Power when they have like, a 100 years of oil under their feet?
