Joe Biden, bombastic as usual, offered clear evidence why the Obama administration is not fit for continued office.
The statement: "Even if Iran was able to produce (weapons-grade) fissile material, folks, they have nothing to put it in. Let's get real here."
Biden is aware, as President Barack Obama is, that A.Q. Khan, engineering leader of Pakistan's nuclear weapons program, sold Iran complete plans for compact nuclear warheads - the same ones fitted onto Pakistani missiles. Notable is machining tolerances necessary to construct these weapons are easily reached by off-the-shelf programming for PC-driven cutting tools. You can purchase a large enough machine shop driven by a PC for $14,000 on the open market.
Our first weapon was built using 1940s technology. With weapons-grade uranium, a simplistic gun-type system could be used with implosion approach with a yield of 900Kt (yes, nearly a megaton) back in 1959.
Point is, Iran already has weapons ready to receive fissile parts. In addition, dirty bomb material using partly weaponized U-235 would render a U.S. city uninhabitable for 100,000 years.
Biden knowingly misled people he is supposed to be leading. Given stakes, when - not if - one is detonated as an electromagnetic pulse, leaving upward of 150 million dead Americans, most due to starvation, this is simply unacceptable.
