    With the Iranian Regime and their hand-picked accountants intensively trained on Caliphate-class, taqiyyeh-tweaked calculators, overspending billions on a "peaceful, civilian nuclear program" by burying the sites deep underground with 20 meter+ thick reinforced, subterranean concrete caps, ringing them with state-of-the-art Russian defensive systems, and surrounding them with their vaunted Revolutionary Guard armed forces makes perfect economic sense though the physical capital return on their investment won't be for a century or more. Why should they care when the spiritual capital return on their investment once they attain the full nuclear cycle, conduct their nuclear tests, and then weaponize their parallel ICBM development will be almost immediate? They could have saved a bundle by building their "civilian nuclear energy" facilities at ground level and just going with an electric fence topped with barbwire and perhaps a pitbull from an animal shelter to keep any inquisitive visitors out. All these extra funds could have gone to helping Iran's poor, captive populace in need of jobs and a higher standard of living. Ask the remaining residents in Bam if they'd like some of that spent cement to reinforce their houses against another earthquake. Now don't be so naive please!
