    "go after their nuke facilities."???

    We hacked them to set their nuke tech back to the stone age. Who the hell ever talked about bombing them or something? I think the closest we'll ever get to flying near them is silently dropping off a spec ops team a couple miles away so that they can infiltrate and insert a USB or something in the facilities.

    Maybe. Iran will have a highly sophisticated missile system to protect its nuclear infrastructure and a weapons daddy on the UNSC to help it out there also.
    To the bolded, sounds a lot like the US/Israeli relationship!

    Funny, all the fuss over Russia not wanting NATO "defensive" missile systems on its border, while choking on Iran installing them.

    Russia placed Iskander (nuclear capable) missiles in Kaliningrad which borders two NATO states. The old -- Do as I say not as I do syndrome.

    And unlike Iran which has attempted to hide its illegal nuclear facilities, Denmark has no nuclear reactors at all.

    So what does that make Western countries? We have been buying, selling and making missiles for years.

    Hypocrisy on both sides is inescapable. Not everybody agrees with you that Iran's nuclear program is illegal. And if when you say, "attempted to hide", you refer to them being built underground, it's not unreasonable for Iran to believe that Israel will bomb any nuclear program regardless of what the UN determines its nature to be. I suppose if they could, they'd hide Tehran underground too!

    What the **** are you on about?

    I said nothing, not one word about the suppliers or the international arms business. further its way off topic so please, go somewhere else if you want a debate on that topic. It is completely irrelevant to what I said,

    Buried underground, it doesn't really matter if Israel knows about it, so your excuse holds no water.

    Iran wasn't hiding Fordow from the Israelis. Iran was hiding it from the IAEA.

    Which is why Iran did not inform the IAEA about the hidden nuclear-enrichment facility at Fordow.
