Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in every country."

Edit: "this guy" was supposed to mean Goering.
I agree, that's exactly what our Bush is doing.

Mullahs are in charge yes, but that whole crushing of dissent thing isn't true. I mean, ok so yes elections are filtered in that the candidates have to be approved by the supreme council, but as far as the people are concerned none of this really matters. You're allowed to speak your views on government. Also, day to day lives are pretty much entirely unaffected.

Are you on the pipe? If your possibility no. 2 above really existed other than in your mind why do they just not have those same insiders just rig the bomb to explode where it is, that would be enough for the US to put pressure on them to cut down the number of nukes they have in their arsenal.

That's what I said.
Think about it from a financial point of view; which is cheaper, pay for infiltrators to do the job withing a relatively short period of time or scientists, equipments and facilities with added security over a long period of time?

Well let me know when they find an Israeli that has that high of status and clearance to get that close to their nukes and who actuallly he is stupid enough to thinks he can get away with it without the Mossad finding him in a matter of months. I don't even think God has that much money too buy someone off that could pull off something like that. You have been watching too much James Bond. I bet you do not get too many apples from your students if you offer them these kinds of "no solution" problems you offer here.

yeah...even better, infiltrate the USA nuclear facilities and destroy Big Satan along with his soil.

Qualifies for the one of the dumbest things I ever heard, Professor.
