Iran has not yet crossed the threshold of being able to make nuclear weapons but might be no more than two years away, Israeli ambassador Sallai M. Meridor said Wednesday. "I really think they are on the verge of getting the genie out of the bottle and leaving our children with a nightmare," the Israeli envoy said at a news conference at the Council on Foreign Relations, a private think tank. Meridor said Iran was having trouble with the process of installing centrifuges to get them spinning and was trying to decide between "quantity and quality" in its program. "2009 is the worst-case scenario to have the bomb," Meridor said, while renewing an Israeli vow to try to derail any nuclear weapons program.
