Iran Is Now Closer in Making a Warhead
Just in case you missed it--Iran has snubbed all efforts of the IAEA and Western powers to curtail their ability to create enriched uranium.
What this means is that Iran, right now, today, has 3300 pounds of low level enriched uranium. What does that mean? It means they ALREADY have enough enriched uranium, albeit low level, to now create high level enriched uranium. When that final step is done, they will have two nuclear bombs.
Let me repeat. Two nuclear bombs. They already have the mid-range rockets to deliver them to Israel, which is their prime target. So, we are not talking years here, it could happen sooner than you imagine.
Iran announced to the world that they will enrich uranium to the high level and experts indicate this can be within months, not years. Ahmadinejad announced that Iran will produce 20% of this highly enriched uranium.
It takes only 33-66 pounds of highly enriched uranium to create a nuclear bomb. Once the uranium is enriched to high grade, it is only a matter of WEEKS to convert it to weapons grade.
Now what? The western powers will now move through tougher sanctions on Iran, which in turn, will make Iran even more belligerent. As time moves on, all this means is that at some time there is a flash point. Either Iran will do something to provoke a western response or some sort of military action will come from Israel or western powers. Israel is simply not going to sit idly by and wait for a nuke to arrive from Iran, if it does, a regional tactical nuclear war will happen in the Middle East. When that occurs, it will effect all of us in some way. That is why you should be concerned because the incident is just around the corner.
This incident is a spark for another major war.
