The rumours about his ancestry are true? Kabooom lol
Anyone have a seismograph? Maybe the earth will move for a lot of people on Valentines day? Who knows?

Another interesting snippet is they cut off the internet yesterday. The previous day all sites using the HTTPS Protocol were blocked. Millions of Iranians are without access to email, electronic banking services and the web. The Government are denying it but some think it's the start of the long promised North Korean style Iran Intranet. They want to cut the population off from any external information sources.

Yeah I heard it would be up and running soon, I'm surprised the recent string of assasination's of their scientists hasn't slowed it down anymore.

I think Nato will only invade when they can can be assured they can win let alone fight a world war or once they can completely surround Iran and conquest over Israel's other enemies.

any open scale attack on Iran would turn into both sides bloodshed ...

Iran was capable to stall even Iraq invasion which was better equipped
(including recently modernized 155m arty which caused most of terrific Iran losses)

since then Iran has put lot of country income to ongoing modernizing of military

AA network in Iran is N times more complex and modern compared to Iraq
manpad AA is common so any helicopter operations in Iran would lead to massive losses

so let's hope the announcement would lead to more stable peace in region

I agree with Dwarden on this. Plus something tells me that Iran has some old soviet bombs in storage that's why there was no direct assault from "the west" until now. So if they do show the bomb on TV , it will be a public "keep your hands off" Iran message.

I think you are right on this. Iran is far stronger than some people might expect. And definately much stronger than Iraq before the war.

Well you need something to deliver a bomb to something as distant as US first.
ArmA2: "Doc, I'm wounded, I can barely aim and I'm bleeding badly, come on pull my body out of the harm's way and treat me before I die!"
ArmA3: "You are wounded! Click to instantly regenerate health whenever you feel like it!"

Guess two years post-release aren't enough to make ArmA3 at least half as dumbed down.

Apparently one of the possibilities is the announcement will be that the Fordow Nuclear Plant is operational (and therefore capable of enriching Uranium).

Hi all

I happened to be wondering through Iran in early 90s, it was around that time there was a rumour that a certain former soviet state received a large amount of liquidity and that Iran might have obtained some 30 or so nuclear shells and MIRV warheads. Had various conversations with people while there, they were very educated oh and not at all the monsters some people portray them as, though like many other countries certain political elements are less open and there tendency to hang around visitors made such conversations somewhat stilted and short. There were lots of former soviet citizens wondering around Iran while I was there. Just an aside.

Kind regards walker

I had the opportunity to talk to a iran/iraq war veteran as he shared the room with me at boarding school for a year...he said that one rason for iraq to fail was simply the hughe montain line beetween iran and iraq. The defense took place mainly at the montain foot and tank operations in high montain areas were simply impossible for iraquis...and still are for any other force.
Btw. my friend Ali was forced at age 16 into the army....he deserted aged and fled to germany in 1988 aged 17
Iran is a natural fortress.

Just having them in tactical capability would be enough.

U.S. Seeks Halt to Production of Nuclear Weapons Materials

At the Geneva-based Conference on Disarmament, the United States called for a worldwide halt to the production of materials used in the making of nuclear weapons.

“A verifiable end to the production of fissile material for use in nuclear weapons is necessary if we are to create the conditions for a world without nuclear weapons,” Assistant Secretary of State Rose Gottemoeller said January 24.
