Oh, I Hope This is True

From today's NewYork Times:

Operations at Israel's Dimona complex are among the strongest clues that the Stuxnet computer worm was an American-Israeli project to sabotage the Iranian nuclear program.

I bet my house it is true. When I first heard about the Worm, my guess was that the Israeli's targeted a couple of employees/workers at the site and the U.S. dumped the worm on the laptop.

I don't think this was rocket science for the U.S. or the Israelis....

Beats an immediate military invasion of Persia by a few thousand miles, don't it? It gives a little breathing space for recalibration and diplomacy, although I fear nothing short of bombing (as Israel did to Saddam's nuclear site in 1981) will do the trick here. Iran is truly a rogue nation. The only thing that's holding it together is fanaticism and the police state.

Even if we had a President with a spine and the right politics, this would be a very tough nut to crack.
