Report: Iran Already Tested Nuke Bomb

I find this hard to believe. Or more precisely, I don't want to believe this. But stranger things have happened:

Iran may have tested a nuclear bomb in North Korea in 2010, Hans Rühle, who directed the planning department of the German Defense Ministry from 1982 to 1988, wrote on German daily Die Welt's website on Sunday.

According to his article, many intelligence agencies believe that of the two nuclear tests carried out in North Korea in 2010, at least one detonation was an Iranian atomic weapons device. Some intelligence agencies believe that North Korea used its nuclear weapons expertise to test a weapon of mass destruction on behalf of the Iranians .

If true, then I'm not sure I get the reason why Obama is putting the kibosh on Israel attacking Iranian nuclear facilities?

I take that back. I know perfectly well why he would want them to hold off.

It's an election year. Bombing Iran would send gas prices north of $5. And under those conditions Obama would lose.

It's the same reason we're already drawing down troops in Afghanistan. An election ploy.

Nothing is more important to this country than Obama being reelected. Not winning a war. Not an apocalyptic enemy who calls us the Great Satan with a nuclear weapon.

Obama, il est l'état

Thanks to Michael.
