YOU KNOW THE SUNNI DON'T WANT THE SHI'A TO HAVE NUKES:

IDF tackling Iran's WMD threat (Yaakov Katz, 9/19/06, THE JERUSALEM POST)

The Post has further learned that in high-level talks with Israeli officials, senior Egyptian officials close to President Hosni Mubarak have given their discreet support for international efforts to stop Iran's race to obtain nuclear capability.

The Egyptian officials told their Israeli counterparts that according to their estimates, Iran will obtain a nuclear bomb within five years and must be stopped. Unlike Egypt, Israel has said that the point of no return regarding Iran's nuclear program was a few months away and at the point when the Islamic Republic would have independent research, development know-how and the ability to continue its program without outside help.

If we really have 5 years, we should be fine with regard to Iran.
