I think we may need some more information before we jump on this pointy finger game bandwagon. Come on ATSers I thought you were smarter than that.
I used to think that too, until i started reading stuff like this:
If you ask me we should be blowing the crap out of Iran's and North Korea's reactors too. You just keep your head in the ground until they
vapourise your a**e! They HATE us and see it as their mission to wipe us from the face of the Earth. Don't for one minute let your wishy-washy
liberal leanings make you forget that.
Now do you all get exactly why Iran wants the bomb?
Iran did want the bomb, and gave up that endeavor oh what, in 2003? They are well within their rights to run a peaceful nuclear power program for
electricity and medical isotopes, which they are. The current system they have is not capable of enriching uranium to 95% purity to be used as bomb
making material. They don't have the ability to do it, nor could they gain it without the right people knowing.
IAEA inspections have, as always, come up completely clean. Iran has bent over backwards to do whatever the US decides it wants them to do, even
offering to ship their fuel to Russia or France for enrichment, that offer was also declined, even though it was the US that suggested it.
This is a perfect example of what's going wrong on ATS. Everyone's half cocked and full of nonsense, no one is bothering to wait for actual info,
or heaven forbid, look for it themselves. nope, people just wait, cause some dude with post something that sounds right, so it's a fact.
Anyways, back on track, bombing a reactor has been done before. Israel bombed one in Iraq in the 80s. Sure this isn't a good deal if you happen to
be in the parking lot. But it's a totally different situation than a full scale meltdown. Even then, until you have a massive blast, a meltdown is
mostly a local issue. As the Japan disaster has shown you. If the ATS geniuses were right, we've all been dead for a week and the NWO super bunker
arks are leaving orbit to colonize mars.
Libya is a different box than Iran, Libya has a brutal dictator, in the process of being ousted, and has used his military against the population.
This man is indeed a threat and all efforts should be made to secure, or destroy, any nuclear material in his possession. This IS the type of man
that would use it, or sell it to the highest bidder.
In all honesty though, I suspect the DU munitions from the US are going to do more damage, all told, than any reactor bombings.
