#1 Israel Pert claims Iran could build a Nucbomb this year, in circa 4-6 months = early-late Summer 2013???
* See also TOPIX > [Times of Israel] IRAN NUCLEAR STANDOFF REACHES TIPPING POINT.
Ala its hallowed "JAPAN" Model, Iran desires to be a a major Nuclear Power or Nuclear Military POwer in all things save for putting the NucBomb parts together in working order.

#2 More ...
* DEFENCE FORUM INDIA > NETANYAHU TELLS AMERICA ITS NOW OR NEVER, to stop Iran's Nucprog.
US must either attack Iran ASAP in 2013, or else accept an inevitably Nuke-Armed Iran + by extens Radical Islamist Militant-Terror Groups. US WILL NOT HAVE THE WILL TO ATTACK IRAN, OR ELSE NOT BE ABLE TO ATTACK IRAN WIDOUT HIGH RISK OF SUFFERING MAJOR CASUALTIES VEE ANTI-US NUCLEAR COMBAT/INSURGENCY.
* SAME > IRAN MAY BE CLOSE TO PLUTONIUM BOMB, GERMAN DEFENSE EXPERTS WARN.
We may find out soon enuff as per NOKOR's upcoming, possibly multiple NucTest(s)???
* SAME > URANIUM [+ possibly Plutonium, other]NUCLEAR MATERIALS FROM BOMBED SYRIAN REACTOR  ARRIVES IN IRAN THROUGH IRAQ.
Title paraph'ed for clarity.
My question is what NucMats andor Technical Knowledge, etc. did IRAQ covertly acquire by this move, iff any - HOW CLOSE IS IRAQ TO A NUCBOMB???
* WAFF > LE MONDE:THIRD WORLD WAR MAY START IN TURKEY.
IIUC, may start indirectly vee increasingly violent competition for national power between rigidly Ultra-Conservative or Traditionalist Turkic Muslims whom seek Western approval by espousing or adopting seemingly "Western" values, versus "Liberal" or pro-Modernist/Reform Secular Muslims whom seek newfound domestic political-n-influence power by espousing or adopting Ultra-Conservative or Traditionalist, ANTI-WESTERN ANTI-MODERNIST VALUES.
OH THE HOOKAH-MANITY - TALK ABOUT "WAVY-GRAVY", TOPSY-TURVY, "YANG-YIN", INVERSE OF THE CONVERSE OF THE PRO-VERSE ... @ETC. FICKLE/FINNICKY RELATIONSHIPS.
BAD GUYS ARE THE GOOD GUYS WHILE THE GOOD GUYS ARE THE BAD GUYS????
D ***NG IT, HOW CAN WE WIN THE WAR!?
