Jane Says: Someones telling porkies about "No Nukes Iran"

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by In-Limbo, Mar 18, 2008.

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Evidence emerges of Iran's continued nuclear weapons research

    14 March 2008

    Documents shown exclusively to Jane's indicate that Iran is continuing its pursuit of the advanced technologies necessary to develop a nuclear weapon...

  2. Surprised?

    That
    1. They might well be doing so.
    2. The US Intelligence might have been wrong.
    3. The US Govt. might be painting another erroneous picture to enable them to carry out certain actions.

    Note it does have civil applications (oil well completion, or drilling operations), but since when did the Iranian MoD in conjuction with the Atomic Energy Authority of Iran (which I presume the intel leak ties in) become responsible for Oil & Gas exploration?

    Perhaps the 'alternative action' of which you speak is a patent lawsuit? They have grounds ;)
