Good News: Iran Working On High Tech Nuclear Warhead Designs UPDATE: Obama Finally Sets Precondition For Meeting

Because warhead design is an integral part of a 'peaceful civilian' nuclear plan.

The report is from that hotbed of neo-con warmongering, the Guardian.

The very existence of the technology, known as a "two-point implosion" device, is officially secret in both the US and Britain, but according to previously unpublished documentation in a dossier compiled by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Iranian scientists may have tested high-explosive components of the design. The development was today described by nuclear experts as "breathtaking" and has added urgency to the effort to find a diplomatic solution to the Iranian nuclear crisis.

The sophisticated technology, once mastered, allows for the production of smaller and simpler warheads than older models. It reduces the diameter of a warhead and makes it easier to put a nuclear warhead on a missile.

But don't worry, Captain Smart Diplomacy is on the case.

Related enough:

Good News! Obama finally requires pre-conditions and promise of concessions before meeting with world leader.

Bad news....It's Bibi Netanyahu.
