Iran Has Enough Enriched Uranium for an Atomic Bomb!


See? Negotiating works! They only have one bomb instead of the two or three they might have had if the Europeans hadn’t wagged their fingers vigorously at them.

From The Financial Times:

Iran is forging ahead with its nuclear programme, the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog reported on Wednesday, deepening the dilemma facing US president-elect Barack Obama over his campaign promise to engage with Tehran.

The latest report by the International Atomic Energy Agency reveals that Iran is rapidly increasing its stockpile of enriched uranium, which could be rendered into weapons-grade material should Tehran decide to develop a nuclear device.

The agency says that, as of this month, Tehran had amassed 630kg of low enriched uranium hexafluoride, up from 480kg in late August. Analysts say Iran is enriching uranium at such a pace that, by early next year, it could reach break-out capacity – one step away from producing enough fissile material for a crude nuclear bomb.

“They are moving forward, they are not making diplomatic overtures, they are accumulating low enriched uranium,” said Cliff Kupchan, an analyst at the Eurasia Group, a risk consultancy in Washington. “These guys are committed to their nuclear programme: if we didn’t know that, they just told us again.”

If you want to visit Israel I’d do it now. I don’t think Obama’s going to be helping out Israel when Iran’s ready to strike.

  1. If Israel were smart, they’d take action very, very soon. I really hope they do because I don’t think we’ll be doing anything.

  2. Seeing as Israel has its own stockpile, and it has just committed war crimes, genocide, nazi-style killing of defenseless Palestinians, wouldn’t that just be a case of pot attacking the kettle for being black?
