Iran Nuke Race: Three Years To Go?

Diplomats and IAEA officials report "feverish" work at Iran's Natanz nuclear facility, laying cables and pipes and installing control panels so the first centrifuge can be loaded by Feb. 11, in synch with Iran's "celebration" if its Islamofascist revolution.

Once it has its first 3,000 centrifuges installed and functioning, within three years Iran will have enough fissionable uranium to produce two bombs a year -- if it can elude IAEA inspection and siphon off the uranium for weapons work. Iran is progressing on that front as well, stonewalling the powerless IAEA. The Nuke-attolahs just turned down a "request" for UN cameras in its processing facilities.

Ultimately, Iran wants to have 54,000 centrifuges spinning away, producing enriched uranium for what must be one of the grandest peaceful electrification schemes ever envisioned.

Tick-tock, tick-tock. Iran's clock is running fast, pushing for a nuke as quickly as possible. The world's clock is barely ticking, as Russia and China continue to stand in the way of meaningful sanctions against Iran, and the IAEA talks on, getting nowhere.
