Israel believes that Iran will not be able to produce a nuclear bomb before 2015. That is the assessment of the outgoing head of Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency, Meir Dagan, in a briefing published on Friday. Previous Israeli estimates suggested that Iran could have the bomb in a year or two.

Empty nuclear talks with Iran

THE TALKS with Iran in Geneva this week appear to have produced little. Delegations from Iran, the United States and its Security Council allies mostly appear to have delivered statements; Iran did not respond substantively to the concerns raised about its nuclear program. The only agreement reached – to meet again in Istanbul in late January – benefited Tehran in two ways: It advanced its aim of introducing Turkey, which opposed the last round of U.N. sanctions, into the negotiations, and it provided a means to postpone further international pressure. According to reports by international inspectors, Iran has the capacity to enrich another 150 kilograms of uranium – a quarter bomb’s worth when fully processed – between now and the next meeting.

US not safe from nuclear attack, say scientists.

The US government’s new strategy for nuclear war is a ‘dangerous fantasy’, according to an independent group of scientists.

The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists says that the current missile defense systems on which the April 2020 strategy is based have not been tested against real-world threats and would not be effective in real combat conditions.
