    Gonna get a little hard to get young minds interested in studying nuclear physics in Iran. Good. This is one of the ways I think war should be waged in Iran and some other places. And why not? It's what they do when they get a chance.

    Yeah. Now picture yourself as the hard working, overtime churning number 2 or 3 guy.......Now, how hard are you going to work on those nuclear weapons?:)

    Thing is, about that old mule story where the number one mule gets clobbered: they never talk about what happened to the number 2 mules' attitude. I'm bettin' Number 2 started payin' real close attention.:D

    It is too bad there weren't several in the car on the way to a party.

    The regime is probably going to be stepping up security around them in order to prevent exactly what you're talking about. It could also light a fire under them to complete the program as quickly as possible, so as to build a deterrent. PSYOP is always tricky, but that doesn't mean that this isn't a valuable operation in its own right. The real value of this is that one less brain is available to work on the program, and depending on his part of it, it could result in a real setback.

    Exactly correct. There is a "That which does not kill it makes it stronger" aspect to any program like this that becomes an overriding national priority.

    That's kind of what I'm hoping. That, and the mysterious explosions that seem to be happening in key places, give me real hope that there is a war already underway. The war is being fought by hackers, stealth drones, sabotage, and assassinations. Those tactics along with interior (to Iran) discontent may actually enable us to win a war we never have to fight.
