The conventional wisdom seems to be that a purely millitary response to the development of an Iranian nuclear bomb is not possible due to the large number of reinforced locations to which the Iranians have scattered their nuke development program. In other words, you can't take them all out, so that the Iranians could simply resume the program. People seem to ignore that it would be fairly easy to simply decapitate the Iranian leadership millitarily, and initiate regime change. Iran is quite different than Iraq, in that there is tremendous opposition to the mullah-run state and many Iranians in the country that want to see it fall, meaning there is a greater level of possible intelligence and perhaps cooperation and coordination with people in Iran for such a millitary strike. I was reminded at another site of the IAF overflight of Auschwitz, the comments at that time, and the established range of the Israeli Air Force. I am sure Ahmadinejad is not smiling in private.
