We agree on a lot!
That stat sheet on the MOP is what concerns me. I finally did find a graphic on Fordow and a cut-away of what the faciity might look like. The
Depths...are the problem here. Remember, this graphic is supposed to make the MOP look good.
MOP Specs vs. known data on Fordow Nuclear
Now, if we assume for a moment that the Iranians are downright simple minded and just built straight down like any American tactical model would just
love to see be the case, this is like destroying the Death Star in Star Wars, right? Down the chute and...... Okay, yeah, movies are neat...because
they show what can never ever happen in real life....so what can the leadership be thinking?
Their own models show the Fordow base starting somewhere at 80 Meters under a Mountain. A rock mountain. That's 40 meters beyond the best estimate.
Gosh.. I hope Iran didn't think of that and build sideways to make the area most likely to take direct hits an obsolete and or redundant part of a
larger and deeper facility. It's not like it's so simple a thought a guy on ATS could come up with it or anything.
....and if the U.S. does this and gets just ONE THING wrong? ONE major target gets missed? Yeah.. I know I trust the CIA's prowess and technical
ability with the lives of millions of people. It's not like they've ever been breathtakingly wrong on war related intelligence before or anything.
Scary, isn't it? This whole thing... Like a nightmare sometimes... No one learned a thing in the last half dozen "conflicts". Not one thing.
