Does this assessment reassure you?
“The [International Atomic Energy] Agency has no credible indications of activities in Iran relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device after 2009.”
Just so we're clear, Iran did not demonstrate the peaceful nature of their programs. The IAEA just couldn't find solid evidence of such a post-2009 warhead program.
Heck, I'm so old, I remember when Iran was deemed to have halted their nuclear weapons work after 2003! And now we figure they had such programs up to 2009. Fancy that. I wonder what the year 2023 will bring us--end of Iran's nuclear program-wise.
And how hard did--or could--the IAEA look?
The failure of the IAEA to find such a program might mean there wasn't one--despite the continuing Iranian investment in missiles (and shelters for launch vehicles) that make long-range ballistic missiles a tiny bang for a big buck without nuclear warheads.
Or it might mean that Iran is just really good at hiding the programs.
Or it might mean that partner-in-evil North Korea is working on the warhead side of the ICBM issue for Iran:
Satellite photographs from October and early November indicate North Korea is digging a new tunnel for nuclear testing, but there are no signs that a such a test is imminent, a U.S. research institute said on Wednesday.
If North Korea plans to sell Iran the nuclear warhead design (and maybe actual warheads), that would provide a logical reason for Iran's so-called halt to nuclear warhead work, now wouldn't it?
And what else might be outsourced by Iran to North Korea, anyway?
