    PW: "Mark Lincoln think Uranium Deuteride Neutron Inititiators are used in oil wells. They`re not. They are only used in nuclear weapons." That may well be so, but mention of "UD3 Neutron Inititiators" has been plucked out of thin air, because it is nowhere mentioned in that Iranian document. That document mentions research into using "TiD2" as a replacement (huh?) for avoiding contamination (huh?) during the "production of UD3". But nowhere did it state a) that Iran was planning to shove "UD3" inside "Neutron Inititiators" b) that "production of UD3" was underway c) that "production of UD3" was imminent d) that "production of UD3" had even been decided upon. So I'm afraid your only source for "Iranian-designs for a UD3 Neutron Inititiator" is CONJECTURE on the part of that Times correspondent. Oh, yeah, and your own pontification....
