Iran Nukes



Israel has already been busy mapping them all out.

According to one top analyst I know personally, the claim is indeed credible, but that it would be a worst-case estimate (i.e., most threatening for us).  It’s doubtful however that Iran will actually “break out” in a month.  But yes, the amount of “20%” uranium Iran has is enough high-enriched uranium (HEU) for a bomb in about a month, once the decision is made.

“We are considering construction of power plants along the coasts of the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea as well as the Central parts of Iran, but priority is given to the Persian Gulf coasts because we want to pave the way for [the construction of] water desalination facilities to supply drinking water for the Southern provinces of Iran,” Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization (IAEO),  said Tuesday Fars reported.

  1. The U.S. has spent more than a decade trying to slow down Iran’s nuclear program—all while Tehran has continued its improvement and expansion. Because the final solution, if there is one, will also demonstrate to other states what the U.S. considers acceptable, safe, and responsible behavior regarding nuclear technology, the U.S must not reward Iran for years of volatile and illicit activity. The Obama Administration should resist the temptation to settle for a short-term deal that merely buys Iran more time to either expand its program through other means or merely reopen it after a short pause. A long-term, permanent solution is required.
