#1 Explain why, if this capability is true, we are broadcasting to the Iranians that they need 201 feet of concrete now.

#4 Glenmore, because we want them to be afraid enough to dig up every one of their important sites and bury them deeper.

Then we will know where they are.

Or they can leave them as they are now, and we can blast them at our pleasure.

The horns of a dilemma. Oooh, they are so pointy.

#5 201 feet? One is a warning. Another on top of that one is a serious threat.

#6 To go where???

* BHARAT RAKSHAK > [HuffPo] IRAN: KHAMENEI'S BAN OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS BINDING.

IOW, NucMat Stockpiles - Yes, physical or manufactured NucBombs - No.

"No Nukes in Iran" = no reason in Iran's + Lefties' minds for the Bammer or Israel, NATO or UNSC, etc. to do anything militarily agz Iran.

THAT LEAVES CHINA + ITS "UNDERGROUND GREAT WALL", i.e. "nuclear storage tunnels", for the MOP to be used on???

#7 FYI CHINESE MILITARY FORUM > US TO STRIKE CHINA'S NUCLEAR WEAPONS FIRST IN ASIA-PACIFIC, so allegedly sayeth the Russian Times as per the POTUS Obama-signed NDAA 2013.

IIRC VIDEO > US, CHINA "FIRST USE" FRICTION = both the US + China believe in preemptive strike agz the other's nuclear arsenal but demand the other can't do same or strike back.

So there.

lol.

* TOPIX > [Korea Herald] US KEEPS STRATEGIC HUSH ON JAPAN'S MILITARY AMBITIONS.

* SAME, DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > CHINA'S ARMY [PLA] TOLD TO PREPARE TO FIGHT:STATE MEDIA; + CHINESE PLA OFFICIALS SAY TROOPS ARE TO PREPARE FOR WAR.

"...To fight-n-win a Battle in 2013".

MilPol double-speak for "FIGHTING JAPAN" = "STRENGTHENING REAL COMBAT-LIKE MILITARY TRAINING". IIUC, the Chinese are telling the PLA to expect serious or intense Japanese military resistance???

YOOHOO, BAMMER, THE PLA + JSDF + ASEAN + USDOD ARE A'LOOKIN AT YOU!
