Based on the replies here, i now understand why people believe Israel have nukes, even nobody actually seen one.
I also believe 100% that Israel have nukes, even tho no official admited that ever.
Based on logic, there is no doubt that Israel have nuclear weapons.
Personaly, i don't think Iran have nuclear weapons, but i strongly believe they are working to get them.
The most important fact that have to be taken into consideration when trying to see if a country have WMD or not, is the long range strike
Israel have subs that can carry nuclear tipped missiles.They also have Jericho's.So, its quite logical to assume that they have those because they
However...Iran have Shahab's...the logic tells me that they AT LEAST want nuclear weapons.
It comes down to this : If someone buys a gun, its logical to assume they bought bullets also, or at least will do it in the future.
Because, really, a gun without bullets its just a sophisticated club.
Well saying that no Israeli official has admitted they have nukes is false. Look at the last link in my previous post. Technically, they have admitted
it but claim the PM "misspoke".
Iran currently has enrichment around 20%. 20% is classified as "weapons grade". However Iran has insisted their intention is peaceful. Such as
Nuclear Reactors for the purpose of electricity. Now for a reactor for peaceful purposes, you can enrich as high as 19.75%.
So for Iran to be at 20% enrichment, it is still possible that their intentions are indeed peaceful, but as I said earlier, 20% is classified as
"weapon grade". Even at 20% enrichment, that is still a long long way from having a nuclear weapon which requires enrichment up to 85%.
