Taken With Calling the Ambassadors Home, Barak May be Hinting At Something


Israeli Defense Chief: Iran Can Build Bomb by 2011
Monday, 28 Dec 2009 07:55

Israel Radio reports that Defense Minister Ehud Barak says Iran will have the technology to build a nuclear bomb early next year and will be able to produce one in 2011.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak delivered this assessment before the Israeli parliament's defense and foreign affairs committee.

The Defense Ministry said it could not confirm the report, and a Barak spokesman wasn't immediately available for comment.

Israel rejects Tehran's claims that its nuclear program is designed to produce energy, not bombs. It has lobbied for tough sanctions against Iran and has not ruled out a military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities.

Iran is under pressure from its domestic opposition and the West to suspend key parts of its nuclear program.

Does it seem to anyone else that 2011 is a bit late in the day considering what we've recently learned about the Iranian nuclear program?

If they have the PEOPLE who understand what to do to manufacture a working weapon, then the entire Iranian scientific community in physics, advanced chem, and mechanical and electrical engineering has to be a target as well as material and sites.

No single rain of 5000 lb bunker busters CAN ACHIEVE THIS END.

Anyone disagree?

So what, I ask you, is the plan?

Looks like first we wait to see if the regime will still be there next week. Who'da thunk? Not that I'm betting any serious money, even if I had any.

Imagine if the internet had been around in the Nazis' time. We'd have had deranged trolls screaming at us in low German.
