Israeli Intelligence Chief Believes Iran can build Nuc

Sorry that I am a little tardy in getting todays post up -just being a little lazy today. I was tempted to just skip a day but this story caught my attention and I thought it was pretty important.

This week an Israeli newspaper is saying that a former Israeli military intelligence chief has said that Iran has all the components to build a nuclear bomb. Of course, Iran says its nuclear program is designed to produce energy and serve other peaceful purposes, but Israel and the West are convinced it is aimed at developing weapons technology.

Amos Yadlin was quoted by Thursday's Maariv daily as saying that if Iranian leaders "get together tonight and decide they are going to secretly develop a bomb," they have all the resources and components they need. On Wednesday, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Iran has not officially decided to build bombs because that could draw harsher international sanctions and other actions against it.

Well, damn. Which is it guys? Are they determined to build one or not -and more importantly if they are, what are we going to do about it? Wait until we see a mushroom cloud over Tel Aviv before we take action?

Live Long and Prosper...
