This information was apparently released by “officials” who are concerned about the lack of Western response. Everyone should be concerned. Any nuclear bomb with any yield in the hands of savages like Islamists is a doomsday weapon, something about which Obama does not seem concerned.

Iran is planning to build a nuclear bomb with at least triple the force of the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima in World War II, diagrams obtained by the Associated Press indicates. According to AP, the diagrams were first discovered by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) scientists after an inspection of an Iranian nuclear facility. The document was published by the AP Tuesday after, the news agency said, it was leaked by officials critical of the way the West has been handling the Iran issue.
The diagrams discovered by the IAEA show Iranian scientists calculating the desired “nuclear explosive yield” in a device they were apparently working on. IAEA inspectors described the diagrams in a report, and a senior official who is working with the Geneva-based UN organization confirmed that the diagrams obtained by AP were the same ones mentioned in the report.
The diagrams showed a scientific calculation of the expected yield of a nuclear device, with a maximum force of 50 kilotons, experts who saw the AP diagrams said. There was no possibility that the diagrams referred to a process other than construction of a nuclear weapon, the experts said.
If Iran is indeed designing a nuclear weapon with a 50 kiloton yield, it will be significantly stronger than the bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan during World War II, which were only 15 kilotons powerful. Nuclear weapons held by the U.S., Russia, and other countries are significantly stronger than a bomb with a 50 kiloton yield.
But they said that Iran’s nuclear program was only for electricity generation. Rigghhhttt!
it’s obvious the freak in the white house WANTS us to get attacked along with israel. anyone who doesn’t realize this is delusional.
People think Israel is the target but the radicals call them the “little satan”.Perhaps getting at the “big satan” first would definately prevent any help to Israel.Guess who that is. Oh yeah, its us.Crikey.
This one will fit right in good with the nukes they have already aquired from N. Korea and China..
Oh by the way, I’m not superstitious or anything, but the 113th Congress in 2013? Bomb shelter anyone?
We built two 67 years ago with 1940’s tech. Don’t think they even bothered to test the uranium
I hate to tell the islamist facists that the end of the story is that Jesus Christ will rule the earth from Jerusalem. Iran will be destroyed by God Himself not by us or the Israelis.
Do we need a source of glass in the middle east? Just askin’
Susan Rice and her boss, the 2 bit demigod said the bomb was a spontanous reaction to …..uhhh, a cartoon? Or was that a video?
