Iran Can Have A Bomb Within A Year

This from Herb Keinon in the Jerusalem Post

Both the US and Israel believe Iran has the technical capacity to build one nuclear bomb within a year if it decides to do so, but both countries also believe the chances that Tehran will indeed make that decision are slim, according to assessments made known to The Jerusalem Post.

According to these Israeli assessments, there is not much difference now between the US and Israel regarding a timeline for a "worst case scenario" on Iran's development of a bomb. At the same time, both Jerusalem and Washington currently believe that "worst case scenario is not likely to materialize."

The assessments come in the wake of comments made Sunday by US Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to the effect that Iran could be as little as a year away from completing a nuclear bomb, while Mossad head Meir Dagan recently surprised many by saying Iran won't have a nuclear weapon until 2014.

"I would be careful about all the declarations on this matter," said one senior government official who deals with the issue, adding that a decision by Tehran to go full throttle toward the building of a bomb was dependent on numerous different decisions the government would have to make, and which it had simply not yet made.

It is becoming increasingly evident that, although intelligence agencies can predict when Iran will be capable of building a nuclear device, no one actually knows if they will do it. If anything, Mahmoud Ahmadinijad and his regime have proven themselves predictably unpredictable. That analysts would downplay Iran's intent borders on naivete. Placing a POSITIVE spin on terrorism again demonstrates that Biblical Prophecy is being ignored.

It is also being reported today that Benjamin Netanyahu and Syria's President Assad are exchanging notes by means of a third party. That tells me that Israel is beginning to exercise a certain desperation in finding some scant hope for peace before it must take unilateral action against Iran. It is an honorable effort, but it will not be rewarded beyond being something that is only temporary in nature.
God has already spelled out in great detail what is quickly approaching around the corner. Read Ezekiel 38 and 39, compare it to current events, and you will see prophecy being fulfilled before your very eyes.
