Iran is on the verge of bringing its first nuclear power facility online. Currently Iran´s Bushehr reactor is planned to fire up on August 21st.
Iran, under much pressure over its nuclear programs, has already began citing UN laws prohibiting attacks against their facilities. Iran, sensing both Israel and the US may yet intervene, is restating the plant is not for weapons.
John Bolton, former US envoy to the UN, states that Israel has 8 days left (now 3) left to launch a strike against the new reactor before the plant comes online. An attack after the power up, would cause radiation to irradiate local civilians.
