Will this nuclear reactor even get started on this date? Will Israel attack within the week? Will the US? Who knows?
Keep in mind the bombing of Iraq's nuclear power plant -
June 7/1981: Israel bombs Iraq's power plant
What one believes and what reality is, can be vastly different.
The Israelis have bombed a French-built nuclear plant near Iraq's capital, Baghdad, saying they believed it was designed to make nuclear weapons to destroy Israel.

Iran to gain nuclear power as Russia loads fuel into Bushehr reactor
After years of delay, uranium-packed fuel rods for 1,000-megawatt plant will be installed next week.
Russian and Iranian specialists are to begin loading uranium-packed fuel rods into the reactor on 21 August, a process that will take about two to three weeks. This will be a key step towards starting up the reactor, although it will not be considered operational from that date.
A Rosatom spokesman said Russia would help load the reactor with fuel, which would be a key step toward starting up the reactor at Iran's first nuclear power plant.
"The fuel will be loaded on Aug. 21," Rosatom spokesman Sergei Novikov was quoted by Itar-Tass news agency as saying.
"This is the start of the physical launch (of the reactor)," he said.
