Iran & Nukes

They're interviewing the guy who wrote this book: The Road to Armageddon on FNC. He's saying that the Iranians currently have at least three warheads they bought from the Russians. The only thing keeping them from being operational is their inability to convert them for use on their missles.

Some happy news for your Saturday.

I tend to doubt suggestions that the Iranians already have nukes, although I I'm sure they're close. The reason I doubt it is that missiles are hardly the only way to deliver them: honestly, horrible as it is to say so, I think within weeks of Iran having the bomb you'd probably see a nuclear carbomb/suitcase-bomb go off in downtown Tel Aviv.
