    This is extremely worrying.

    I don't think for a minute Iran is going to instantly lob a nuke at Tel Aviv as soon as they finish their weapons program. However, I think the testing and its timing is intended to provoke Israel into a pre-emptive strike. The world will pay a lot more attention to any such attack then they did to the one on Syria's nuclear weapon's facility, which barely got noticed. The price of oil will shoot through the roof and the global economy will stand on a terrifying precipice.

    If for some reason Iran is allowed to develop nuclear weapons the world is also kinda fucked. For instance, Iran decides to tax any ship going through the straights of Hormuz at 1000%. Don't like it? Go on, have a go, if you think you are radioactive-proof enough.

    Anyone who thinks they are developing them for purely defensive means to counter the aggressive USA is a retard, I'll say just in passing :)

    Seems to me that just about everyone involved has been busy antagonising each other beyond any fucking common sense. Blaming it all on Iran is every stitch as retarded as blaming it all on the yanks, or on israel.

    The US and NATO *are* hard enough, though. I'm pretty certain that a dedicated attack on a 1991 Gulf War-scale could well destroy every single Iranian nuclear-capable missile before it got a chance to launch.

    Then again, I odn't live within 2000 kms of Iran...

    All this diplomacy around the Middle East is a huge waste of resources. Nuking Israel would be much cheaper.

    Well Iran is the country who is defying the international community on this one. They are the instigators of the problem. If other countries reactions may be decked out in crazy bunting that doesn't detract from the fact that if Iran would just wise up and shut down their centrifuges there would be no problem.

    So I'd say Iran - it's current and past leadership - bears the lion's share of the responsibility for this mess.

    Nuking

    In many online video games (especially MMORPGs), the term nuke is generally used to describe a spell or skill which is capable of dealing a great amount of damage to its target. More specifically, the term is applied to a player character's most damaging spell or spell-like ability.

    Related to the above meaning, "nuking" is the act of using a nuke on a given target.

    Between communities, the term may have slightly different meanings. For example, within some communities, to "nuke" is to deal the most possible damage to the most possible enemies (almost exclusively by means of an area of effect skill), whereas some communities use the term to refer to dealing the highest possible damage to a single target in the shortest amount of time (eg. "Nuke the healer first and ignore all the rest until he's dead!"), also known as a spike.). Alternately, some communities require that the player or players doing the "nuking" must do so by means of ranged combat (that is, out of melee range), whereas some communities make no such specification.

    In a real-time or turn-based strategy game, the term "nuke" literally refers to annihilating a large portion of an opponent's forces with a superweapon or equivalent, typically a nuclear missile, as seen in StarCraft and Command & Conquer. Alternatively, in Warcraft III the tactic of attacking one of the enemy's Heroes with your own Heroes' heavy damage spells, in order to kill it or cause it to run away is called nuking. The spells themselves are referred to as nukes.

    Is their no way of discreetly deploying chemical or bio weapons in tehran?

    Nuking them will cause too much damage to the surrounding areas?

    I'm sorry - so Israel and the USA have never defied the international community in their dealings with the middle east? No threats to invade or bomb or anything like that That's me set straight. Poor innocent lambs, bearing no responsibility for this sword of Damocles at all.
