#1 I am sure that the US and Israel have made plans for a raid on the Iranian nuclear facilities. Waiting still increases my anxiety level, though. I worry especially about the Black Turbans giving enriched U235, either raw, or or in the form of a device to proxies for their use in blackmail.

#2 Possibly, more than any single issue, Iran serves as the perfect bellwether for Europe's complete inability to act in their own interest. This crippling degree of inaction in the face of a massive threat mandates unilateral action by those with detectable blood concentrations of testosterone.

#3 Iran also serves as a truth test for Kerry.

He ignored it in his acceptance speech. Can he address the Iran issue credibly or even coherently when he's asked about it?

#4 I know everyone says that we can't bomb all the nuclear targets in Iran -- too many of them, too dispersed, too well guarded by defense systems, buried too well into civilian areas. Nope, nope, can't be done.

Sounds like a challenge for some Tomahawks and VERY precision guided weapons. Lots of them. Which we happen to have. Hmmmm ......

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
