U.N Report Shows Iran Accelerating Nuke Capabilities

The United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency said that Iran has drastically accelerated it’s capability to produce higher-grade enriched uranium in just the last few months.

While Iran insists that it’s nuclear ambitions are purely peaceful, missing uranium metal, the construction of underground facilities for enrichment and a failure to convincingly explain its activities have given the international community reason to fear that Iran is close to breaking the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty that it had agreed to.

Iran publicly stated that it began using its underground Fordo facility to enrich uranium to 20% – a level much more easily upgraded to weapons-grade material. Iran began the high-grade enrichment at the underground plant in January that is about 20 miles north Qom – a religious stronghold in the Islamic nation – and right next to a military base.

Iran has stated that the higher-grade uranium is only to be used for medical purposes, but the placement of the manufacturing plant deep underground and encircling it with missiles and defense armaments paint a different picture. The on-again/off-again nuclear talks and refusal to allow inspection of Iranian facilities also fuels fears that Iran is on the verge of going nuclear.

  1. C’mon people! Iran already has nukes! They have had nukes for some time now. The only reason why they are building all the centrifuses are so they can make their own. Don’t you know that’s how Arabs are, and always have been. They don’t like making other people’s stuff, they buy something from someone, take it apart, then redesign one and make their own. They’ve always done things that way. So they buy one and us it as the example, and now are starting to make their own. At least they’re not like the Russian’s used to be and went around after they stole the design and claimed they are the one’s who originally built the first one, and somebody stole the idea from them. This is the way Iranian’s have been forever.

    So they bought one from either the Russian’s or the Chinese, or several. Yeah, they already have them and it’s just politics that they haven’t used one yet. They have to do their sabre rattling you know.
