The former UN chief weapons inspector said Iran will be able to produce a nuclear bomb within five years if it is allowed to enrich uranium on an industrial scale.
"It is a matter of will," Hans Blix told The Associated Press, adding that while Iranian leaders now say they have no desire to build atomic arms and want UN inspectors to oversee their facilities, "they might change their mind."

Five years/ how about five months.
We need a formula to convert UN projected time to actual time.
I guess hans is looking for a job. Here is a UN weapons Insprctor who couldnt find his own Sphincter with a mirror and a flashlight.
6 months, tops. Wait for the underground test. The UN (Useless Nations) is delusional and impotent.
What's going on here? I know I saw Hans Blix die! I saw it with my own two eyes! He was eaten by a shark!
If they have it in 2010, Hans' crew will still be unable to find it.
Can someone who is knowledgable in this area explain how the various inspectors can be sure that Iran wasn't bullsh*tting them all along and showing them only a portion of it's atomic program? I seem to remember people giving North Korea the same kind of estimates weeks before they announced they had the bomb.
Hans Blix - the Deputy-Inspector Clouseau of weapons inspectors!!
The Christian Science Monitor of February 18,1993 headlined, "Iran Defends Its Pursuit of Nuclear Technology." In that article it is stated that in December 1992 the CIA issued a report (never made public) stating that, "Iran was making progress on a nuclear arms program and could develop a nuclear weapon by the year 2000." There has been so much bewildering information published on the program, perhaps it is necessary to recall that it was begun by the Shah in the 1960s. I'm not sure the CIA knows anything more about the Iranian program today than it did 13 years ago.
Given his previous performances, that means they'll have it by Thursday afternoon at the latest.
Just Hans Blix, he's been lost in his house for years.
Oh no. Not Mr Magoo again.
