The following comes from Raymond Learsy at PoHuff, summarizing part of a report in the New York Times from Nov 5, 2011:
[T]he International Atomic Energy Agency Report . . . is expected to spell out that Iran has conducted tests on nuclear trigger devices, conducted abstruse experiments to spark a nuclear reaction, and, of particular concern, wrestled with designs that can miniaturize a nuclear device into small confines. Then the article frighteningly muses on the prospect that if Iran ever slips a bomb to a proxy — “Hezbollah, Hamas or some other terrorist group” –ascertaining a bomb’s return address could take months if it “went off in some American city or in Riyadh or Tel Aviv” before it was ever identified as Iranian, thereby seriously complicating meaningful retaliation.
The New York Times article Learsy is summarizing from is “America’s Deadly Dynamics With Iran.” It’s worth reading directly and in full.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the nervy nuclear Iran quote for the day.
Have a nice rest of the day (if you now can).
