If la Stache Grande is correct - hang on tight with both arms inside - it's gonna be off the hook!
And yet - if Little Satan deigns not to design enrichment interruptus - then an even more worser entity is born:
Hail New Clear Praetorians!
Despotries subtle and gross have fielded praetorians throughout the manchild experience. The guardian guard of imperial imperators could perhaps best be scoped out as an uparmored posse of body guards and as political solders at the regime's disposal.
Intended to be special purpose troops for such duties as putting down counterrevolutions and strikes, conduct purges, and quell riots, praetorian guards are the actualizing enablers.
And new clear Praetorians can do all those things plus maintain command and control of an atomic arsenal.
Persia's Revolutionary Guard maintains the regime of Preacher Command - how or will the Revo Guards act out when new clear power is achieved?
"...When Iran develops nuclear weapons, determining their command-and-control will become America's overriding intelligence objective. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's genocidal rhetoric shocks the West. Would he control the bomb? Not likely.
"...In the Islamic Republic, the president is subordinate to the supreme leader. Khamenei may be the ultimate political authority in Iran, but will an aide carrying launch codes generated daily shadow him day and night? Equally unlikely; the ayatollah allows no aide so close.
"...Possession is 90% of the law. And in that sense, on a day-to-day basis, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps - which will "own" the arsenal - will control it. This is no comfort: Not only do the Revolutionary Guards contain Iran's most radical ideologues, but they also remain effectively a big, black box to Western analysts.
"...While professors speak knowingly of hardliners, reformers and pragmatists along the Islamic republic's political spectrum, no one knows much about factions within Iran's ideological army.
"...No American official knows with certainty whether the Iranian general controlling the bomb is a pragmatist who seeks only to defend Iran, or whether he believes the key to the Hidden Imam's return is just one button away.
"...The second the first Iranian nuclear bomb rolls off the assembly line, power shifts fundamentally, unleashing an endless cycle with the most radical elements in Iranian society determining leadership and appointing men in their image to determine the next generation of leadership.
New Clear Praetorians will also have an incredibly hot! inclinating penchant for maintaining that regime at all costs. These are the the actualizing enablers of the Revolution, they fought Iraq, fought America and Little Satan with proxies and face to face.
And if the regime's survival is the question of the day
"...3 scenarios are possible.
"...The idea that the regime is not suicidal, the mantra of those who embrace deterrence, transforms into a force for fear: The Revolutionary Guards could blackmail the world to ensure its own survival. It might also flee, selling the weapons to finance their exile.
"...The worst case scenario, however, is that with regime survival a moot point, true believers might use their last moments to launch the bomb to fulfill objectives of destroying Israel or wounding America. After all, they know the world will not retaliate against a new Iran if the culpable regime is already destroyed.
