  1. I pray that folks would only understand that the Nucs Iran is working on are not intended for direct detonation but for generation of EMP. They are not totally st___d, in fact they have some of the most intelligent people (not considering the Russians who live there), and know that the only way they can overcome America is by bringing us to our knees. Think about it, we are so wrapped up in technology, that we could never function in any battle field without electronics. I mean, and I'm just a dumb engineer, they know the retaliatory cost that they would pay if they attacked directly. All they want is (and really need) is the destabilization of our country. Can you imagine the chaos that would ensue if we loose our iphones, our S5's, our lap-tops. Er. our 5.25in screens. What on God's earth will Americans do without text messaging!
