Despite the statement by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Israel’s red line on Iran’s illicit nuclear program could be reached by next spring, Iranian officials are adamant that war is close.

In analyzing Mr. Netanyahu’s recent speech to the United Nations General Assembly, an Iranian nuclear policy strategist boasted to state media outlet irannuc.ir that Mr. Netanyahu’s red line is based on the current enrichment process to the 20 percent level at the Fordow nuclear facility. A recent International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report shows Iran has 90 kilograms of 20 percent enrichment, needing just 130 kilograms of such material for a nuclear bomb, which the Israelis conclude will happen by next spring.

“The first important fact is that Netanyahu has assumed that the speed of 20 percent enrichment by Iran remains the same till next year, but if the speed of such conversion then is changed, the timeline for such capacity will change, too,” said the unnamed strategist, hinting that Iran could obtain the needed material for the bomb sooner than Israel expects.

  1. This could be a bluff but no one can take the chance it is, unfortunately the western leaders are all determined to follow in Nevil Chamberlains footsteps.

  2. It’s easy for Iranians to prepare for nuclear war. All they have to do is loosen their belts, drop their pants, bend over to kiss their asses goodbye.
    While they may insist on an atomic bomb, their are others with neutron bombs which will sterilize the theatre without all the fuss and muss of conventional atomic or thermonuclear devices. Once they force this result, the Great Purge will begin and in short order the world will be rid of such vermin and those that remain will have learned a lesson that will last one thousand years.
