Many people are asking if Iran can build a nuclear weapon. The answer is No, they cannot. Iran does not have the tools or material to do so. Some 40 countries would probably like to build a reactor, though, according to the IAEA, the International Atomic Energy Agency. A reactor is the first step to a nuclear weapon.
But, the President of the US, politicians in Israel and other important people say Iran “might” be able to build a weapon in a few years. So what? I might like to jump over the moon too; but, it ain’t gonna happen.
Same thing with Iran building a nuclear weapon. Iran does not have the tools to do so. Iran cannot get them or even make the tools required. Iran cannot even buy the tools. Try calling up Japan Steel and ordering a few tons of Marange Speciality Steel and see what happens.
Talk is cheap; building nuclear weapons is not. Building nuke weapons is a very expensive, dirty, nasty business. Lots of people talk glibly about building nuclear weapons and have not a clue what they are talking about; only a few people can actually do it. Freelancers, independents and “terrorists” don’t have a chance of doing so. No, building nuclear weapons is an exclusively state run business.
