    A major U.S. intelligence review has projected that Iran is about a decade away from manufacturing the key ingredient for a nuclear weapon, roughly doubling the previous estimate of five years, according to government sources with firsthand knowledge of the new analysis.

    The carefully hedged assessments, which represent consensus among U.S. intelligence agencies, contrast with forceful public statements by the White House. Administration officials have asserted, but have not offered proof, that Tehran is moving determinedly toward a nuclear arsenal. The new estimate could provide more time for diplomacy with Iran over its nuclear ambitions. President Bush has said that he wants the crisis resolved diplomatically but that "all options are on the table."

    Ten years? I wouldn't be surprised if it was more like 10 months. Lord, come quickly please!

    Let's be careful about such thinking as that is what got us into invading Iraq and we ended up being wrong about WMDs being there. Let's not make another decision based on feelings instead of facts.

    They are talking manufacturing - is this kind of thing on the black market? Ten years and one ingredient sounds awfully close to me.

Let's not make another decision based on feelings instead of facts. </font>[/QUOTE]It was fact that the world based its assessment of Iraq's possession of weapons of mass destruction. We know they had them, as we sold many of them to them. We know some were burried in the sands, we know some were destroyed by Saddam, we know some were flown to Iran and Syria.

    Let's not make decisions based on feel good liberal twattle either.

    The next POTUS will back away from the terrorists plenty.
