Netanyahu: Iran is closer to a nuclear bomb than people think
Do read the comments ...

Following publication of damning IAEA report, PM says document by UN's nuclear watchdog does not represent reality as it only includes 'provable' facts.

Iran is closer to assembling a nuclear bomb than "people think," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday, following a the publication of a report by the United Nations' nuclear watchdog on Tehran's nuclear program.

Last week, the hotly anticipated document said Iran appeared to have worked on designing an atomic bomb and that secret research may continue. It was the most detailed International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report to date on the issue.

Based on what the agency called "credible" information, the IAEA repot indicated that Iran had built a large explosives vessel there to conduct hydrodynamic experiments, which are "strong indicators of possible weapon development."

2. Good. Iran needs some nukes really soon.
North Korea's nukes kept the US at bay, hopefully Iran's nukes will do the same.

7. Good thinking, my hope is that everyone gets nukes....
Because what the world needs are more weapons of mass destruction. The more people with nuclear capabilities the better, we will be in a much safer place............

3. I know what everyone's thinking.
But Benjamin Netanyahu is not a liar!

Why, I remember him telling the truth once in 1993,...

5. Netanyahu is closer to a complete breakdown than he thinks
Besides, he's been outed as a liar by more than one world leader.

Men who think they can create their own reality are nuts. Shun them.

6. That's Netanyahoo in a nutshell (where he belongs); reality and provable facts are unrelated.
Aside from that, if them getting nukes is what it takes to calm Israel down, I'm all for it. If their (rumored) existence slows the rate of oil extraction from the Middle East, all the better. Either issue is much more important in the long run than what happens to oil prices or profits this year, or next year.
