Iran developing 'two-point implosion' device

This is from a New York Daily News editorial.
A just-revealed IAEA dossier says Iranian scientists may have tested a sophisticated design for a "two-point implosion" device. This is the technology that allows for production of smaller, simpler nuclear warheads that can be fit on missiles.

In other words, nukes that could hit Tel Aviv.

Iran has admitted to testing technologies for multiple high-explosive detonations that are synchronized to within a microsecond. Its leaders insist there is a civilian application for such tests. But no civilian application is known.

Now, a European adviser on nuclear issues has described Iran's two-point implosion research as "breathtaking." For millions who live within striking distance, that could take on literal meaning.
How much longer are we going to pretend that Iran's nuclear program is for civilian use?

Israel can longer put off a decision for long on a response. It now looks like its a matter of when not if Israel will launch a strike upon Iran.

A civilian-purposed nuclear bomb can be used for light, for example, or to pave parking lots, or to move earth. Don't go off assuming that just cause they are making a bomb that it will be used to try to kill people.
