    Tehran alone has 17 million people. The nuclear energy will go a long way.

    There's no evidence that Iran is developing nukes, other than suspicions at this point. UN inspections have turned up nothing. We went into Iraq believing fake evidence despite UN inspections declaring Iraq nuke-free, and I don't think we should do that again.

    If Israel thinks it can determine regional policy and starts bombing Iran, then it should be prepared to face the consequences.

    Iran will have 17 million less people to supply power for I guess.

    WRONG.

    Iran has flat refused to allowed inspectors to interview some scientists and visit certain sites. This is STRONG evidence Iran is hiding something. Also ... Certain Iranian govermental scumbags have said Iran has the right to "SPECIAL" weapons.

    There is evidece. If Israel bombs, Iran's nuclear facilities, Iran will deserve what the get.

    Nuclear material for a generator is only about 20% pure. For it to be useful for a nuclear weapon, it must be 95% pure.

    I'm going to have to agree with Vader here. Unlike Saddam and his Iraq, there isn't the pressure to play the "I have them-No I don't" game. Furthermore, Iran is pulling some of the same moves that Israel did when it tried to hide its program. And there's no reason to spend huge sums of money on enrichment when they can get it relatively cheap and reliably from Russia unless they are trying to enrich to weapons grade. I don't disaree that Iran wants civilian power, but it also wants defensive nukes.

    That's technically not true. An implosion device utilizing uranium can make a nuke out of 20% enriched. It just would require a larger then normal number of reflectors and a larger then normal explosive amount of shaped charges to compress the uranium into a critical mass. Sure it's bloody hard to make it, but North Korea managed to make implosion devices with plutonium and they have been in contact with Iran.
