Mossad: Iran to Reach Point of No Return by End of '05
"The assessment is that by the end of 2005 the Iranians will reach the point of no-return from the technological perspective of creating a uranium-enrichment capability," Mossad head Meir Dagan told parliament's foreign affairs and defence committee.
"The moment that you have the technology for enrichment, you are home free," he said, adding that from that point it would take Iran around two years to manufacture nuclear weapons.
Meanwhile my favorite Saudi mouthpiece, the Arab News, asks Iran: Next Victim of 'Freedom'? The freedom to build the Bomb? Um, yes. No nukes for the mullahs. What's so amazing about this article is that the Saudis don't want the Persian Shia to have nuclear warheads more than we do. The Saudis are within missile range. We aren't.
The Saudis should be grateful if we take out the Iranian capabilities. But they are so anti-American that they will bitch about us even threatening (ever so subtly) to do so. Without us they would be filling Saddam's mass graves.
What would the Saudis prefer, to be 'victims' of freedom or victims of al-Qaeda's jihad? Because those are their two options. Assheads.
