relevant national dialogue on Iran’s nuclear program on the occasion, U.S. media reported the U.S. and Israel do not rule out military strikes against Iran’s previous nuclear facilities may be, but if you really want to use force, to purposes and is not easy.
military strike difficult
United States and Israel develop military nuclear facilities of Iran strike plans face many difficulties, including lack of accurate intelligence, can not confirm the specific number and location of nuclear facilities against too far away and so on.
“If you want to implement an effective action, (the Iranian nuclear program) a few years back, require a great effort,” U.S. “Los Angeles Times” to an unnamed former senior U.S. government intelligence officials as sources reported. The official has been involved in assessing the feasibility of military action against Iraq.
several U.S. officials have previously said that to reach seriously undermine the purpose of Iran’s nuclear program, need to use missiles to attack nuclear facilities in Iraq primarily to destroy the relevant research institutions and production, centrifuges and other equipment storage sites. To ensure that the missile accurately hit the target, you may need to send ground forces into Iraq territory.
latest report as “mission impossible”, that is the Hollywood blockbuster “Mission Impossible” in English formerly known as the United States to describe attempts to destroy Iran’s second uranium enrichment plant.
accurate intelligence difficult to
the Iranian government announced last month, is being built near the holy city of Qom second uranium enrichment plant, causing the international community. Iranian officials later said that this nuclear facilities are located in a foot of the mountain, and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard a base adjacent to the base is equipped with air defense systems.
U.S. intelligence agencies, access to his country’s nuclear program, accurate information is a problem. After the 1991 Gulf War, the U.S. government discovered that Iraq was trying to develop nuclear weapons.
2003, the United States to develop weapons of mass destruction in Iraq ground invasion of Iraq, but could not find conclusive evidence, to admit that intelligence was inaccurate.
IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei said earlier this month, there is no “conclusive evidence” that Iran is developing nuclear weapons. U.S. intelligence agencies previously found that in 2003 Iran stopped developing nuclear weapons.
avoid retaliation difficult
some former U.S. government officials and political analysts believe that only confirmed that Iran “manufacturing highly enriched uranium” or a nuclear test , Barack Obama may be put into force until the government.
Iran’s ability to fight back the United States and Israel to take military action to be cautious.
last month, Iran test-fired more missiles with a range sufficient to cover all of Israel and the United States military bases in the Middle East’s medium-range ballistic missiles. Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Deva Hidi warned Israel that if the party attacking Iraq would be suicidal.
U.S. government worried that if military action is not completely destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities, but could prompt Iran to develop nuclear weapons.
diplomacy is the right path
diplomatic progress with Iran to enhance countries ‘nuclear’ to talk about confidence. Iran this month in Geneva, Switzerland and the United States and other six-nation talks, International Atomic Energy Agency pledged to open a second uranium enrichment plant and the “principle” agreed to purchase from third countries of fuel-grade enriched uranium.
19, Iran is scheduled to discuss the issue on the purchase of enriched uranium the United States, Russia, France and the IAEA. ElBaradei said IAEA investigators will go to 25 uranium enrichment plant located in Qom.
