Iran will have nuclear powerPE
So, I ran across this article, which I think could be fairly serious. Placing it in the Monkeying Around forum is rather oxymoronic, but it has nothing to do with finance, so here it is.
Obviously some people will say this is being blow out of proportion, but I think it deserves some attention. The article basically outlines that Israel has 8 days to launch a military strike against the facility because anytime after that the uranium will be delivered and in place and any sort of strike would be have radiological effects. Now, I doubt Israel will take any sort of military action but I don't think that it is being dismissed on a whim by those in charge. They have to be wondering it their future is in jeopardy.
At the very least, doesn't it seem ironic that a country with the third most known oil reserves on the planet is so dead set on building nuclear power? One would ask (1) why that is even necessary and (2) shouldn't someone like...say, the United States being building more nuclear power plants given our oil reserves stand at just 15% percent of Iran's? Just sayin'.
