    Charleston would be a strategic target, because of the ballistic missile nuke sub base there. However, there are likely many other targets of greater value.

    However, sneaking one in on a cargo ship would be one of the easiest ways.
    If they could have, they would have. It's not like al Qaeda is trying to lull us into a false sense of security over the past dozen years. Big metal radioactive objects are relative easy to detect if you're looking for them.

    but a nuclear bomb is not a simple device to make, and i don't think many terrorist organizations have access to specialists in nuclear technology

    To be clear, I'm not with Graham on this. I live in SC, and there is a group of us trying to pry him out of that Senate seat.

    I don't think what is going on in Syria is necessarily connected, as he is implying... other than if we DO bomb Syria someone might try to retaliate, and the Iranians probably have or will have nukes soon.


    Personally I think we have a better chance of being left alone if we leave this Syrian civil war alone.


    Yes, if AQ coulda done it to this point, they would have. However, that doesn't mean they will never be able to, necessarily. Just sayin'.

    In and of themselves, not so much no. This is one of the concerns about Iran, however.

    It seems to work for the Chinese. They are isolationists regarding anything related to humanity, with the exception of beating the USA at its own game of business acumen.

    Ever heard this Arab proverb? "I and my brother against my cousin; I and my cousin against the outsider."

    They hate each other a lot... but they hate us more. Now Iranians are considered Persians, not Arab, but they are Muslim and so not as bad as infidels, and definitely not as bad as the infidel Great Satan (what they call the US).
