    non-proliferation of nukes for twenty five years does not utter a word about Israel's dangerous and destabilizing nuclear arsenal! Olli was "let go" due to his lack of professional objectivity and neutrality in dealing with Iran. He had actually been turned into and intel agent for Iran's enemies. No surprise he's not worth listening to. One of the reasons why non-proliferation has failed in general is that people like Heinonen are working for one side by failing to hold their side of the NPT treaty which is helping the non-nuclear countries to use nuclear energy. Iran asked for such help and did not receive any. That's when Iran decided to do it on its own. Along the way some stuff was done behind closed doors. But by and large the Iranian nuclear program is one the most inspecte, monitored and watched nuclear program in the world. Those whose nukes have been targetting every majour population center in the Middle East have no legs to stand on when it comes to using nuclear threats. Iran is the threatened party here. So looking into ways to learn to construct a "re-entry cone" is not a threat for those who have them already. Iran can only be a threat when threatened, that's all.
