    Iran passes redline, has enough U235 for Bomb

    Iran has now built up a stockpile of enough enriched uranium for one nuclear bomb, United Nations officials acknowledged on Thursday.

    In a development that comes as the Obama administration is drawing up its policy on negotiations with Tehran over its nuclear programme, UN officials said Iran had produced more nuclear material than previously thought.

    Iran’s success in reaching such a “breakout capacity” – a stage which would allow it to produce enough fissile material for a bomb in a matter of months – crosses a “red line” that for years Israel has said it would not accept.

    Yes that's right folks. The Israelis aren't gonna sit around and wait for the Obama folks to save them. How long till Israel hits Iran?

    I'm betting May, early June at the latest. They won't wait, and shouldn't wait. Diplomacy has failed.

    From the other thread on this:

The story provided merely refers to Iran's nuclear power program and their enrichment of uranium for that purpose; there is currently no evidence that Iran has a nuclear weapons program (which is pretty hard to hide).

    Iran holds enough uranium for bomb

    FT.com / Middle East / Politics & Society - Iran holds enough uranium for bomb
    Iran has built up a stockpile of enough enriched uranium for one nuclear bomb, United Nations officials acknowledged on Thursday.

    ...UN officials said Iran had produced more nuclear material than previously thought.

    They said Iran had accumulated more than one tonne of low enriched uranium hexafluoride at a facility in Natanz.

    If such a quantity were further enriched it could produce more than 20kg of fissile material – enough for a bomb.
    Kooks with nukes.

    This "Whoopsi !" is brought to you by the UN (and Demokrat Partei way). The place with the motto: Corruption since inception.

    Hey Mr. O, are you going to go talk to the IslamoNazi's about how we can get them to give up their toys... of course without preconditions?
    To accept Israel?

    Are we going to talk like the EU had, or like Jimmy Carter had... begging every step of the way.

    Let's talk. It's got them material for one Nuke.
    Maybe we can help them get enough for 10 or 20 nukes by the time Obama has left office in 2012.

    Hey... Mr. Hope, Change and Unite (LOL)... let's see your silver tongue in action.
    Let's see how it's done.
    You and Hillary... maybe you can bring in the anti-Semite Carter too. He's had great success with the Iranian kooks. I'm sure they love him.

    So Mr. O... let's see how brilliant you are in disarming a bunch of kook radicals. No Mr. Obama... I'm not talking about the Demokrat Partei, but the IslamoNazi's.

    Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can.Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can. Yes We Can.

    Maybe that will work with them too?
    It worked with the drones here.

    LOL.

    Re: Iran holds enough uranium for bomb

    ROFLROFLLOLZZZ Israel has thousands of nukes ready to be assembled in the basement. You think one Iranian nuke is going to challenge the Israeli deterrent?

    Iran's one nuke will be shot down and then it will become a crater in the Earth before any of Iran's enemies are at risk.

    LOLOLLMAO

    The Israeli's are but one concern.
    That material could be used to construct a dirty nuke.

    Do you think they could make a pre-emptive raid on Iran?
    I think they've already done something similar around 20 years ago, and it looks like their new government will be quite right wing, but...do you think they could do it again?

    I am as concerned about the Israelis having nukes as I am the French and Brits having them.

    Iran having nukes will lead to a nuclear exchange in the ME.

    Re: Iran holds enough uranium for bomb

    Hey on another thread I was told bombs can't be made from low-grade uranium, so no big deal. I guess we're safe.

    Re: Iran holds enough uranium for bomb

    A senior UN official added that countries usually waited until they had an enriched uranium stockpile sufficient for several bombs before proceeding to develop fissile material. He conceded that Iran now had enough enriched uranium for one bomb.

    “Do they have enough low enriched uranium to produce a significant quantity [enough high enriched uranium for a bomb]?” he said. “In theory this is possible, [although] with the present configuration at Natanz it isn’t.”

    David Albright, the head of the Institute for Science and International Security, said: “If Iran did decide to build nuclear weapons, it’s entering an era in which it could do so quickly.”
    This has been my guess for awhile: Iran will simply wait for the right time or stimulus to make a bomb to avoid receiving strong condemnation.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    There are those here that will -never- comdemn Iran for building a bomb.

    These people fall into two groups:
    Those that believe the US is the cause of most problems in the world;
    Those that look forward to the destruction of Israel.

    There may be some overlap between the two.
