    Hey, let’s just invade! What’s a couple thousand dead American soldiers and one or two hundred thousand civilian deaths? That’s how The Decider would handle it.

    And we wouldn’t look so weak doing that stupid diplomacy stuff.

    Michael, it depends on how many Calutrons the Iranians might have. Remember that an Iraqi site bombed in the 1991 Gulf War disclosed a large number of centrifuges. According to Richard Rhodes in Twilight of the Bombs the use of centrifuges took IAEA inspectors completely by surprise. Everyone was expecting that the Iraqis would produce Plutonium rather than separate U235 from U238.

    Since the separation can be done well away from a reactor, which might be subject to inspection, it might be easier to hide, although such a facility does require lots of centrifuges and floor space.

    But we know that the Iranians have such a facility because that is what the Israel “worm” attacked a few years ago, wrecking a number of centrifuges.

    Netanyahu has been saying this for at least a decade. There has been no more activity on building a nuclear weapon since 2003. Backed by the UN and our own intelligence agenicies.

    No question that reactors converting U238 into Pu is the way to go, economically. But hiding a the necessary reactor underground has it’s difficulties.

    Also, reactor bred plutonium has a high ratio of Pu-240, which has to be reduced to make weapons grade plutonium.

    Here is an article about the Iranian centrifuges. That’s a lot of centrifuges!
