August 21 Deadline for Dropping One on Iran Without Radiation Release

Fox News' David Asman and for U.S. U.N. Ambassador John Bolton have a detailed conversation about Iran's announced launch of the first of ten nuclear reactors. The real news here is that a strike on Iran before August 21st can be done without releasing radiation into the atmosphere. According to Bolton, after August 21st radiation is an issue for the area. Bolton doesn't believe Israel or anyone will drop the big one on Iran's nuclear facilities. [Disclaimer: In my title, "Dropping One" does not refer to Dropping The One] See the video below. See an update below.

News that Russia will load nuclear fuel rods into an Iranian reactor has touched off a countdown to a point of no return, a deadline by which Israel would have to launch an attack on Iran's Bushehr reactor before it becomes effectively "immune" to any assault, says former Bush administration U.N. Ambassador John R. Bolton. 
Once the fuel rods are loaded, Bolton told Fox News on Friday afternoon, "it makes it essentially immune from attack by Israel. Because once the rods are in the reactor an attack on the reactor risks spreading radiation in the air, and perhaps into the water of the Persian Gulf." 
Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit has more information.

Update 8-17-10:
This report from The Jerusalem Post says if the Bushehr plant is hit after the fueling begins, the radiation can reach as far as the waters of the Persian Gulf.
