SecDef Gates Warns "We Do Not Have an Effective Strategy To Deal With Iranian Nukes.

We have a strategy Secretary Gates. It's called "let them". (NYT link)

But in his memo, Mr. Gates wrote of a variety of concerns, including the absence of an effective strategy should Iran choose the course that many government and outside analysts consider likely: Iran could assemble all the major parts it needs for a nuclear weapon — fuel, designs and detonators — but stop just short of assembling a fully operational weapon.

This is actually Gates saying "ok, you've decided not to keep it from happening, and you've asked us to come up with contingencies for dealing with a nuclear-armed Iran,"

"we don't have any."


Great.
