Nuclear physics, no, but quantum chemistry yes, under which you need to have a good understanding of nuclear reactions, you know fission and fusion. You've probably heard of it in films and the like....

No I don't check, these guys do

Here's a nice simple summary of their work for you to understand

I'm not a liberal, I'm a conservative but that seems all you got.... however, you want to argue with a scientist on such matters. That's not wise....

I gave facts above. Currently Iran only has enriched uranium at around 5% and needs to enrich that above 90% and make around 37kg for a viable nuclear device. (That's not easy, if it was many more countries would have nukes).

So to enrich to that sort of purity, (as I've said before not easy) you need many, many high tech centrifuges, not the sort you find in a school chemistry lab. Iran just doesn't have anywhere near enough and it would take them years and lots of money to procure or develop them. So what Trump is saying and Bolton is just nonsense but then again Trump thought the Americans captured the airports in 1776, so you can't expect much from his puny brain.

So lets say in 10 years Iran develop a nuke and can set it off in Israel, (which they won't, you know nothing of ME politics), NATO does not have to respond because Israel is not in NATO. There would be a response of course, but it's all hypothetical, the same a China nuking Japan. Remember, only one country has ever used nukes on civilian targets, so the moral high ground is not theirs.

I feel sorry that America robs you of a proper education and being able to critically think for yourself. To see America slide into worshiping ignorance is sad.

No, the regime in Iran is despicable and I hope they get toppled in a revolution and Iranians get the government they deserve. However, in any discussion of such consequences we need to discuss the facts, not Trump sound bites. Trump is an idiot, but who is the bigger idiot, him or those that believe everything he says.

Iran is probably at least 10 years away from getting a deliverable nuclear device and that is if they really go for it. Lets say they managed to make enough centrifuges and they can enrich uranium to the purity needed, they still do not have the capability of hitting the US. Those that would be in danger would be their near neighbours.

It's all hypothetical anyway, the Iranians lack the tech and the money to get a nuke anytime soon and if you believe a deranged narcissist racist for anything and believe tweeting is world class diplomacy, then you are deluding yourself.

So many pro-lifers also believe in creationism, the irony is not lost on me....

I think you've just proved you know very little about nuclear technology, uranium and how much enriched uranium is needed to develop a nuclear device.
