The heart of a nuclear explosion reaches a temperature of several million degrees centigrade. They are the most dangerous and powerful weapons the world has ever seen and has obtained. Such percep�tions vary with changes in the strategies and forces of the great powers, not of the lesser ones. Their use, although unlikely, is always possible. Inspectors saw only the above ground part of the buildings, not the many levels underground and the visit frequency was never more than once a year.

S. seaboard with ‘state-of-the-art-nuclear-submarines,’ lying 20 miles off the coasts, not rust-buckets by any means, and a blade of grass won’t grow on this continent in 2000 years, a just and righteous action for this world’s benefit! One Israeli commentator recommended that Israel should signal Iraq that “any Iraqi action against Israeli civilian populations, with or without gas, may leave Iraq without Baghdad.”100 Shortly before the end of the war the Israelis tested a “nuclear capable” missile which prompted the United States into intensifying its SCUD hunting in western Iraq to prevent any Israeli response.101 The Israeli Air Force set up dummy SCUD sites in the Negev for pilots to practice on—they found it no easy task.102 American government concessions to Israel for not attacking (in addition to Israeli Patriot missile batteries) were: Allowing Israel to designate 100 targets inside Iraq for the coalition to destroy, All of this validated the nuclear arsenal in the minds of the Israelis.

Before the bombing, Iraq had developed plans and purchased some minor items for a 20- to 40-megawatt heavy water natural uranium reactor. Israel refuses oversight of its nuclear activities, and is probably still producing plutonium. It will be too late to change the policy if the worst comes to pass; we have to change it now. War remains possible. but victory in war is too dangerous to fight for.

In 1995, Iraq changed its estimates and reported it had produced only 210 tons of tabun and 790 tons of sarin. Very fine particles may be blown even further before they combine with water vapour and fall as radioactive rain. The secret project went by two names, the somewhat euphemistic “A Study of Lunar Research Flights,” and the more mysterious “ Project A119 .” Many of the documents around the project are still classified so we can’t be sure exactly why the project was abandoned, we can only be grateful that it was.
