It has been more than three months since those estimates were made.” Interestingly, it tried to raise a question about the availability of only “one” bomb and why Tehran avoided such a bombshell from being publicized. In its response, the writer tried to steal the limelight by showing fictitiously that Tehran has gone to great lengths to build several ones and at diverse locations. What about the reasons? The writer suggested that if there is one bomb, it is easy for the U.S. and Israel to expend considerable effort to find and destroy it — but more bombs in more locations makes this effort increasingly complex, if not almost impossible.
