Tehran can build a nuclear bomb.

The Military 5

reporter (666905) writes "According to a startling report just issued by the "New York Times", "senior staff members of the United Nations nuclear agency have concluded in a confidential analysis that Iran has acquired 'sufficient information to be able to design and produce a workable' atom bomb." In 2007, American intelligence erroneously concluded that Tehran in 2003 stopped further research into designing nuclear bomb. This conclusion was contradicted by Germany, French, and Israeli intelligence. Recently, London has concluded that the American assessment is incorrect.

So, here we are. The Iranians have the knowledge to build a nuclear bomb and have been working relentlessly to perfect its design. Tehran is now creating the parts (e. g., enriched unranium) that can be assembled into such a weapon.

Meanwhile, Jerusalem is justifiably on the verge of ordering its military to bomb the Iranian nuclear facilities. Will Paris offer military support to the Israelis? A bombing mission against Iran is a difficult military operation and needs the assistance of the French superpower."

justifiable ? (1)

justifiable is a dangerous word to be throwing around here without argument.

Please take your off-topic Zionist hatemongering elsewhere. Slashdot is a site for "news for nerds"; this is neither.

Erm that was directed at the article, not parent.

If you've followed the news, you'd know that Iran has basically declared itself the enemy of Israel, so it is expectable that they want to nuke it. Now, most humans have a desire for self-preservation, and the capability of identifying emerging threats, so yes, I'd consider it justifiable for Israel to bomb the Iranian nuclear lab to prevent itself from being nuked. It's way more justifiable than America's recent invasion of Iraq, IMHO.

And no, I don't take sides in the Israel-Arab conflict. I think both of them are assholes, on a national level at least. But then again, sometimes you have to be an asshole to survive.

Great... So the Israelis bomb the lab and save themselves from which atomic bomb? The imaginary one they are afraid of Iran sending their way or the real one Iran will build to strike back at Israel for the bombing?
