I never, well almost never, take umbrage with anyone with another opinion, as civil debate is why we should exchange thoughts here and elsewhere. I do
appreciate your obvious decency, and sig; Take Care. I just think your, well wrong, but hardly in-total. With honest respect please take into
account, just a few things. As for the source you quote, aside from logical and self serving rhetoric AND consider that anyone who thinks that
processing u235/238 to 20% purity, or make plutonium w/a lithium "booster-enhancer" thinks its for a "peaceful reactor", would not allow
inspectors in which could in most cases clear it all up in most w/in weeks.
Iran has buried VERY deeply several known reactor and "other" nuclear sites that can be used to create make actionable quickly just about anything.
Though we have different remote sensor technology that can look sub-surface, and other interesting things (I will provide several reputable OS (open
source) sites that anyone can look at free, or for more interesting stuff a modest fee), as web sites at the end of this post. As for what Iran has
been doing about at least 15 years. Then again I get a lot from other sources that DO involve basic news, multiple sources as one is never good
enough, like real good pastry, x-check and reference "other news/sources/published papers-stuff" and all important private contacts, the kind you
only discuss in person.
I know this was not your main point at all, but may help establish my bona-fides, or perhaps not. Everything that follows is for the most part OS, but
not usually common knowledge, also referred to as "SENSITIVE but UNCLASSIFIED" Did I first double check about mentioning some of this not in the
"NYT", for one example*? Oh yeah. I am careful in this about anything that MAY even remotely affect National Security, SCI-Corporate information
since I basically "do company stuff" (No, not THE COMPANY...) I worry about it because lets say I'm pathological. (What no one even noticed?
Right...) I know what can happen when some people get off showing how smart/connected they are because people have died as a result, or we f*****
ourselves usually&often may have cost 1-to-X billion $$$ because of mouth moving, brain on serious, heavy duty narcotics... Dumb. Actually its
criminally stupid. Enough pre-amble...
As for Iran building nukes to prevent the US from attacking allow me to provide a few scenarios: Q- When would it be likely for the US to pre-empt? A-
only if an attack was considered imminent and w/extreme (OS, phrase for highest level of) confidence. How do we determine same? Don't even ask, plus
actionable protocols, what and how we do stuff, usually is modified but not always by Executive Order, as happened after 9/11 and change more often
then I change my shorts. Q; What are reasons for a response that is what is called today "large caliber", and that means by the way NON-NUCLEAR
response. If we we're struck by nukes the SIOP drills have looked at almost any foreseeable Presidential or his/her "available" survivor to such an
attack. I couldn't tell you if I knew, anyway I'm not high enough the food chain. I DO know we change/update plans all the time, I just know we have
LOTS OF options, based on ? Kind of a no brainer but certainly a conventional attack on say a ship if a US military (our allies, and others and have
their own protocols) to this , though the US takes its obligation as "friend" much more seriously then many would imagine. This is an issue I differ
w/Ron Paul on
As said many times I can not give you a direct link (so type an address, no biggie), and don't post transmit or do the same w/video. No doubt
you've heard of stegenagraphy, embedding information in many ways in a picture? Its possible to by-pass all open or sleeper counter espionage
technology/etc programs by clicking on the image and imbedding "not for use at home" malware in the image processing or screen picture-imaging
materials and actual flat screen image actuation&image enhancers, old cathode-ray tube type screens ( So its undetectable by almost all conventional
screens as new oregano-polymers, that technology I have both worked on and designed some rather exotic and very new basic technology as some of the
technology is difficult to date just manufacture w/todays non-adaptive industrial materials and infrastructure, way to $$$ heavy. Only mentioned here
to make people aware of new and for intent currently unknown in common cyber-war, hacking,etc. I know I've said it before but w/the ungodly cash
available to some companies and governments of course it can be a visual trojan (not THAT but) whats often called a SEVIA, Selective, (sometimes
called specific) Embedded Visual Image (or in some neighborhoods Image (most use intelligence, since we have the word "visual" Attack. Running out
of space so will continue next post.
