#2 Iran in 2012 must decide whether to formally declare it desires + will build NucBombs; or it will hold off building same while possessing the ability to quickly do so.
As subject to ...
* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > A [Air = ISAF/ISAF] STRIKE ON IRAN WOULD POSE TOUGH TEST FOR ISRAELIS.
* TOPIX > WHAT IS HEZBOLLAH'S ROLE AFTER ATTACK ON IRAN?
Even iff AIRPOWER + MOSSAD ASSASSINATIONS + COMMANDO, ETC. STRIKES are successful, at best it would only delay Iran's NucProgs while giving Iran legal + moral reason/credence to demand "defensive" NucWeaps [e.g. Post-Kennedy, Missle Crisis CUBA]; + activate Regional, International Proxy Terror Ops agz the West.
* PREMISE FOR UN-SANCTIONED US-IRAN WAR > either "IRAN HAS NUCLEAR WEAPONS" VERSUS "IRAN MIGHT DEV NUCLEAR WEAPONS", wid "Iran" = also meaning Radical Islamist MilTerr Groups + aligned NGOS.
D *** NG IT, CLEALRY THERE ARE "NO WMDS IN IRAN"!
