Crippling Iran's nuclear ambitions

Developing nuclear weapons is very energy intensive. It requires a LOT of electrical power. (look at why Oak Ridge, Tennessee was so important to the Manhattan Project).

If I wanted to disrupt Iran's nuclear ambitions without knowing all the nuclear sites I would go after the Iranian power grid.

Oooh, what a great idea! That is much better than trying to bomb 300+ sites at one time. I hope they don't have auxiliary power.

If they have auxiliary power at the levels required such a power plant(s) would quickly show up on thermal imaging sattelites.

Bomb the intakes and exhausts if the auxiliary generators are not directly accessable.

Rinse repeat.

In addition you now have identified the locations of important infrastructure.

Not what I was searching for, but none the less and interesting blog here. Thanks for putting it up. I've enjoyed reading alot of the text here. I got you bookmarked for the future, I'll be back.

My site is a bit different, some think it's odd. I guess it's a matter how you look at it. I have a mens male enhancement reviews related site. Most of the articles are on mens male enhancement reviews.
