Now this is an interesting article and whilst it may or may not be technically true in its assessment of Iran theoretically being able to develop a nuclear weapon in such a short amount of time - a highly questionable assertion to start with - it neglects to note the type of weapon iran would likely be capable of manufacturing. Most experts in the field of nuclear weapons postulate that if iran did decide to make a bomb it would be a fairly rudimentary one and one it would be hard pressed to deliver anywhere. It's extremely dubious any weapon would be capable of being mounted on a rocket and the chances of Iran being able to fly such a payload anywhere are only marginally less remote. Now unless the US/Israel/KSA honestly believe that Iran can physically drive or ship a nuclear/thermonuclear weapon to them this constant hand ringing over Irans supposed nuclear weapons program would so far seem to be a lot of hot air over, well, very little.
Oh, and did i mention that by literally every reliable account Iran doesnt have a nuclear weapons program in any way, shape or form?
I smell a persiaphobic conspiracy.

Thanks to its advances in nuclear technology, the country may be closer to a bomb than ever.

One of his previous articles is titled: "Trump’s Iran Sanctions Could Work"


Imagine my surprise.
