    A former head of Russian Missile Defense Organization made a few observations lately. He started by enumerating the elements of advanced technological research in Iran. [1] nuclear enrichment, [2] solid-propellant ballistic missiles, [3] space-launch technology. Then he asked, if a scientist from Mars came down to earth and said... 'hey, there's a country on earth that has these three programs in place... what does it want'. The answer is obvious... they want a Nuclear Intercontinental Ballistic Missile program. He asked... does a nation need ballistic missile technology for 'peaceful' power generation. Okay, so a Martian scientist may be wrong. But a Russian Defense official... not so much.
