The Race to Stop Iran's Bomb

As Iran is moving forward with its nuclear efforts, there has been an almost not so quiet movement from Israeli to bring a stop to their progress. We have reported before that Iran was only months away from producing its first atom bomb.

In April of last year Israeli started working on a 30 million dollar purchase of 100 bunker buster bombs from the United States, now it is believed Israeli has those bombs in their arsenal.

A time-line has been developed for when a possible use of force could be used against Iran. Best estimates is that there will be an attack in March on Iran's nuclear facilities. Unlike a previous bombing by Israeli on a nuclear facility in Iran, this strike may include as many as 50 targets, and the use of ground troops has not been ruled out.

What are the prospects that such a plan will be enacted? Only time will tell, but we don't underestimate Israeli's resolve to put an end to a regional nuclear threat.
