    Secret document exposes Iranís nuclear trigger

    Link

    From The Times December 14, 2009
    Secret document exposes Iranís nuclear trigger
    Catherine Philp in Washington
    Confidential intelligence documents obtained by The Times show that Iran is working on testing a key final component of a nuclear bomb.
    The notes, from Iranís most sensitive military nuclear project, describe a four-year plan to test a neutron initiator, the component of a nuclear bomb that triggers an explosion. Foreign intelligence agencies date them to early 2007, four years after Iran was thought to have suspended its weapons programme.
    An Asian intelligence source last week confirmed to The Times that his country also believed that weapons work was being carried out as recently as 2007 ó specifically, work on a neutron initiator.
    The technical document describes the use of a neutron source, uranium deuteride, which independent experts confirm has no possible civilian or military use other than in a nuclear weapon. Uranium deuteride is the material used in Pakistanís bomb, from where Iran obtained its blueprint.
    I'm surprised this hasn't gotten any attention here. I'd say this is a critical piece of news about Iran's program.

    They're only guilty of horrible lying, nuclear proliferation, murder, and funding appendages that murder under a pseudonym, and orchestrating the Qod's Terrorist Orchestra, which is filled with hizb'allah trombones, Taliban violinists, Islamic-Movement-Uzbekistan cellos, and a Houthis pianist.


    No "harmful guilt".... The Islamic Republic of Iran's Qod Terrorists Orchestra will be visiting a supermarket, business tower, and a sporting event near you!

    Nevermind that Israel has never threatened to wipe any country off the map, doesn't teach it's children Arab's are evil, and gives rights to all it's citizens... those are small details when talking about those damn dirty Jews right?

    (that was sarcastic for those of you incapable of detecting such)
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    here's a challenge. show us where that was said

    doesn't teach it's children Arab's are evil,
    again, since you are insisting this is a national iranian practice, it should be easy for your to offer up evidence of your allegation. i look forward to seeing it

    and gives rights to all it's citizens
    if israel gave rights to all of its citizens then the arabs would control the israeli government

    ... those are small details when talking about those damn dirty Jews right?
    please point to my derisive comment about jews ... or, being unable to do so, admit you are once again speaking out of your ass

    Not that this thread has anything to do with Israel, but when did this ever take place?

    I can't remember who it was, but someone said that with 72 virgins come also 72 mothers-in-law!

    So you can't blame him for starting his Christmas shopping a bit early (like two years ago!) he has a lot of in-laws to impress and still find time to plan the return of the twelfth Imam.
