Iran and weapons of mass destruction.

Computer simulations run by Iranian scientists reveal a nuclear weapon with more than three times the power of the bomb America dropped on Hiroshima during World War II, the Associated Press reported.

The AP cited a diagram it obtained from anonymous officials featuring a bell curve whose highest point is 50 kilotons (a measurement unit indicating nuclear force), compared with the Hiroshima bomb’s power of 15 kilotons.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, at his September speech to the United Nations General Assembly, displayed his own diagram indicating that Iran nuclear program would reach the point of no return in the spring or summer of 2013.
