Graph Obtained by Associated Press Confirms Iran Working on Atomic Bomb

Yeah, I’m sure Obama’s sanctions against Iran will deter them from building a nuclear device.  After all, sanctions have always worked in the past when you have fanatics running a country, right?  


Iran nuclear bomb? Iranian scientists running simulations on bomb with massive explosive force

VIENNA – Iranian scientists have run computer simulations for a nuclear weapon that would produce more than triple the explosive force of the World War II bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, according to a diagram obtained by The Associated Press.

The diagram was leaked by officials from a country critical of Iran’s atomic program to bolster their arguments that Iran’s nuclear program must be halted before it produces a weapon. The officials provided the diagram only on condition that they and their country not be named.

The International Atomic Energy Agency — the Vienna-based U.N. nuclear watchdog — reported last year that it had obtained diagrams indicating that Iran was calculating the “nuclear explosive yield” of potential weapons. A senior diplomat who is considered neutral on the issue confirmed that the graph obtained by the AP was indeed one of those cited by the IAEA in that report. He spoke only on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the issue.

The IAEA report mentioning the diagrams last year did not give details of what they showed. But the diagram seen by the AP shows a bell curve — with variables of time in micro-seconds, and power and energy both in kilotons — the traditional measurement of the energy output, and hence the destructive power of nuclear weapons. The curve peaks at just above 50 kilotons at around 2 microseconds, reflecting the full force of the weapon being modeled.

The bomb that the United States dropped on Hiroshima in Japan during World War II, in comparison, had a force of about 15 kilotons. Modern nuclear weapons have yields hundreds of times higher than that.

The diagram has a caption in Farsi: “Changes in output and in energy released as a function of time through power pulse.” The number “5” is part of the title, suggesting it is part of a series.

    The UN, EU, NATO,,USA, UK and the other ‘usual suspects’ have joined the ranks of the castrated (I.E. the international ‘no balls’ crowd), and will not act or attempt to act until it is too late. Diplomacy and sanctions only work when bargaining from a position of strength and the alternatives are clearly defined.

    In some parts of America the blame game is all the idiocracies have. Like an addict these people must hit bottom before there is any chance of recovery. So which city would be their first target? And who do we blame when that occurs? I say we blame the residents of that city, they must have done something.

    I hope they target msnbc, not me. They have been asking, hell, begging for it.

      I agree, the remaining liberals will try to send a telegram of apology to the ‘Supreme Guide’, and beg our government to use restraint.

      • tgusa Says:

        Taking in to consideration the political climate we have seen over the last ten or so years we should build up President Reagan’s dream of missile defense that democrats have ridiculed from the beginning by labeling, star wars and if they nuke us we nuke them back. We have all seen and heard that we have to let them go first. Call it the price of doing business the way our leaders have conducted our foreign affairs over the last few decades.
