Israel has been warning the world about Iran's goals of building a bomb to use on their country and possibly others. Netanyahu did so at the UN, but Susan Rice, UN rep of the USA,  walked out to have lunch with others, so she didn't take Israel seriously.

 It has just been disclosed that Iranian scientists have in mind a "nuclear weapon that would produce more than triple the explosive force of the WWII Hiroshima bomb, Little Boy,  that fell on August 6, 1945. "  The bomb on Hiroshima had a force of about 15 kilotons.It killed 90,000-166,000 people.  Death was not pretty.  Half of the population killed died on the first day by flash or flame burns (60%) , falling debris (30%) and other causes (10%).  People kept dying for months from radiation sickness and burns.

The USA dropped another bomb, Fat Man,  on Nagasaki on August 9, 1945 whereby 60,000-80,000 more people went through the same painful deaths.  Six days later on August 15, 1945, Japan surrendered.  If that happens to Israel, surrendering wouldn't do much.  I'm afraid about 600,000 people would be dead or dying, completing Iran's goal of driving Israel and its 6 million Jews out of their native land.

 The new graph obtained on the QT shows Iran's to be 50 kilotons.  Modern nuclear weapons have yields hundreds of times higher than the 15 created in 1945.

The International Atomic Energy Agency told us last year that they had diagrams showing that Iran was calculating the "nuclear explosive yield" of potential weapons, but who listened?  Now a high level diplomat confirmed that the graph AP just received was one of those cited by the IAEA in that report.

Their goals must be stopped before it produces a weapon.   The people reporting are doing so only on condition that they and their country not be named.  "Iran's nuclear chief said yesterday that uranium enrichment will move ahead with "intensity" with a sharp increase in the number of centrifuges used to make the nuclear fuel."
