To know which way the fallout's blowin...
When is a nuclear program a nuclear weapons program?Yup... that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad... he's just all about the electricity.
The open secret of the nuclear age is that the line between civilian and military programs is extraordinarily thin.
Enriched to low levels, uranium can fuel a reactor that produces electrical power — which is what Tehran says it wants to do. But if uranium is purified in spinning centrifuges long enough, and becomes highly enriched, it can fuel an atom bomb.
Indeed, the most difficult part of building a bomb is not doing the secret military design work but rather the part of the process that is also crucial to civilian nuclear power — producing the fuel.This one's a no-brainer.
Standing by and doing nothing here is like letting your labrador retriever drive the kids to school.
