Iran simulates nuclear warhead detonation - report
German intelligence reports that Iranian scientists have successfully simulated the detonation of a nuclear warhead in laboratory conditions, in an effort to sidestep an underground nuclear test. DEBKAfile's Iranian and intelligence sources report that this development is alarming because detonation is one of the most difficult technological challenges in the development of a nuclear weapon. Mastering it carries Iran past one of the last major obstacles. Debkafile
The US has given Iran until the end of the month to give up on its nuclear ambitions or face sanctions. That, of course, is almost laughable at this stage of the game. Iran has gone way too far to give up on their nuclear goals. They may attempt to posture a few more months to delay international sanctions but certainly have no intention of turning back at this point.
As stated in the above Debkafile article, German intelligence has reported that Iran has successfully simulated a nuclear weapons detonation. This means they will not have to do an underground nuclear test which is considered one of the more difficult steps in developing a nuclear weapon.
After this breakthrough, the German BND intelligence believes it will take Tehran no more than a year to perfect its expertise and stock enough highly-enriched uranium to make the last leap toward building the first Iranian nuclear bomb or warhead. DEBKAfile's military sources confirm that simulated detonation of a warhead takes Iran to the highest level of weapons development. Debkafile
Experts believe, with this stage of their nuclear program perfected, they will now concentrate on actually making the weapon. The first nuclear warhead is projected to be completed sometime near the end of 2010 or sooner.
Based on this development, is it time for Israel to finally attack Iran? Biblically speaking, Scripture does not support an Israeli attack on Iran, but just because it's not mentioned does not mean it won't happen.
Here are a few articles by experts who address this possibility:
