#1 A lot of cost, asset and failure risk to destroy the facility. Less to disable access(entrances, power, logistics) to use of the facility.
Strategically more viable to disable the much softer targets of Operational Command and Control.
Strafe the busses carrying technicians to the site(s). Soon nobody will ride the busses.

#2 Compare wid TOPIX/WORLD NEWS > VARIOUS > [WashTimes] ATTACKING IRAN NUKES MAY ONLY SLOW PROGRESS, EXPERTS UNCERTAIN OF LOCATION, POSSIBILITY OF RETALIATION.
ARTIC = In reality, [short of War + Invasion] neither the US or Israel can stop Iran from dev or repoducing Nuclear Weapons.
ONCE AGAIN, IOW US + ISRAEL = CAN SLOW, BUT ARE UNLIKELY TO STOP IRAN FROM DEV NUCWEAPS.
Moreso given ...
* TOPIX > PUTIN: IRAN HAS RIGHT TO CIVILIAN NUCLEAR ENERGY PROGRAM.
IRAN = being a good SCALPEL LAWYER = POSSESSING THE ABILITY TO QUICKLY PRODUCE NUCWEAPS IS N-O-T THE SAME AS ACTUALLY POSSESSING NUCWEAPS, ERGO NEITHER THE US-ALLIES NOR THE UNO HAVE BASIS TO SANCTION MILACTION AGZ IRAN.
"NO WMDS IN IRAN"!
* TEHRAN TIMES > REGIONAL BALANCE OF BALANCE SHIFTING IN FAVOR OF RESISTANCE [agz Israel + Zionism]: JALILI, wid kudos to Lebanon's role in the anti-Zionist + Paleo struggles.
