There is no time for complacency on Iran because US intelligence suggests it could have the capability to produce a nuclear bomb as early as 2010, a senior US diplomat said Monday. "Our assessment ... the assessment from our intelligence community, is that the soonest they could produce a nuclear weapon would be the beginning of next decade, 2010 to 2015," said Gregory L. Schulte, US ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency. "That gives us some time, but we are 2006 now, that's four years away. So that gives us time for diplomacy, but it doesn't give us time for complacency."
