    Diplomats: Iran has means to test bomb in 6 months

    VIENNA -Iran is blocking U.N. nuclear agency attempts to upgrade monitoring of its atomic program while advancing those activities to the stage that the country would have the means to test a weapon within six months, diplomats told The Associated Press Friday. What should we do or not do?

    I note that it does not specify who these diplomats are or where they come from.

    Obviously, this is to protect their source(s).

    If this is true, however, it will be interesting to see how Pres. Obama responds.

    It seems obvious to me what Obama has chosen to do.

    Nothing much more than talk.

    He will let Israel go to war and THEN we will respond if necessary.

    As I did read the story earlier I didn't think it worth because the Headline is written to get your attention and the sory clearly says there is very little chance of Iran actually risking the detonation of a nuclear devise because it would only serve to raise the ire of the world community.
    As to Obamas's lack support for Israel it is clear that he favors the Muslim community to which he shares a common personal belief. He also failed to support the citizens of Iran because it could lead to a true democracy which he also opposes as seen in his support of legally ousted want to be Dictator Josť Manuel Zelaya who does reflect Obama's true colors. Speaking of which I'm sick to damn death of hearing how he's black. He's only half black and 100% yellow.

    Article gives clues.


    In Germany it made the news that their Intelligence service had determined such mentioned here.

    The six-month time frame confirmed to the AP Friday was first mentioned last week by the German magazine Stern, which cited Germany's Bundesnachrichtendienst, its main intelligence branch.

    Albright said Friday six months are "in line with our estimates."
    German Intelligence denied it publicly..but whatever..

    BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's foreign intelligence agency BND denied a report in a magazine on Wednesday that its experts believe Iran is capable of producing and testing an atomic bomb within six months.

    My bet is the "diplomats" are a mixture of that stories players mixed with IAEA people.

    IAEA-
    An International Atomic Energy Agency report last month touched on those concerns.
    It said the agency had informed Iran that, due to the growth in enrichment capacity and output, it was seeking "improvements to the containment and surveillance measures" it now had at hand. And a senior U.N. official said expansion at Natanz "makes it increasingly difficult to do the surveillance" needed to ensure none of the material produced is being diverted.

    Its not years Iran already had enough for one device a few months back.

    UN-February
    The UN's nuclear watchdog reported today that Iran had managed to enrich a metric tonne of low enriched uranium (LEU), which UN officials say is technically enough to build a nuclear weapon.

    USA-March
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States believes Iran has stockpiled enough nuclear fuel to make a bomb, U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen said on Sunday.

    I don't believe Obama will do anything unless utterly forced by events.

    Negotiations are over for all intents.
    USA/UK/France/Germany should make it clear in no uncertain terms. You wil not develop a nuclear weapon..if you do it will be regarded by these nation states ads Declaration of war by Iran upon them.

    Obama should press Congress for such a vote..now.
    He won't though..that might get mud on his bloody hands.


    Thankfully we have one western state who is not shy in this and is making clear they will not play with their existence.
    If the West is found lacking and unmanned they will not.
    If they are forced to do such Obama should resign.

    Obama screwed up in a press conference and gave Iran a year..March 2010...and sadly for him the press picked it up and now he's stuck with it.

    Bush handed over negotiations in an agreement with the EU back around 2002/3 They took over direct talks and Iran told them to piss off...Until they gave up in 2008.



    But you wouldn't know anything about that..too busy being a twit on a forum.

    You mean the same Bush that didn't care what the world thought? That Bush? So you are saying that Bush was a pussy then, got it.

    As for the twit comment, good to know you admit to losing the debate since you resort to personal attacks.
