Sober Reminder: Iran Nearing Nuclear Warhead Detonation Capability

Here’s some sobering news to end the weekend with — from the Times of London:

Iran has perfected the technology to create and detonate a nuclear warhead and is merely awaiting the word from its Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, to produce its first bomb, Western intelligence sources have told The Times.

The sources said that Iran completed a research programme to create weaponised uranium in the summer of 2003 and that it could feasibly make a bomb within a year of an order from its Supreme Leader.

The clock is ticking. It’s time for strong leadership. In the midst of serious debates about health care, energy, taxes, government spending, and Supreme Court nominees, the world remains a very dangerous place.
