The Strait of Hormuz is one of the world’s most congested international waterways. It is only 21 miles wide at its narrowest point and is bordered by the Iranian coast to the north and the United Arab Emirates to the south.
Erm no, that'll be Oman then....

Not being a Nuclear Scientist, but am just wondering, if they bomb the shit out of the nuclear reactors would that basically have the same effect as dropping a nuke?

I don't know, anyone?

There could be fallout, but not the same kind of explosions. The material has to be detonated in a particular way. I think.

Anyway, I'm guessing now's not a good time to consider coming back to the big sand pit... strangely enough the recruiters in that region have been very active in the last week or two. Are there more vacancies because everyone's leaving?

The impact is more like a Dirty bomb, so fissionable material would be spread around the immediate vicinity and further depending on weather patterns etc. Nuclear reactors can't go off like bombs, they're made of not enough of the wrong sort of radioactive materials and you can't get them to critical mass. You'd be looking at something like Chernobyl minus the meltdown.
