WOW! I NEVER SAW THIS COMING!
Iran has now produced roughly enough nuclear material to make a single atom bomb, according to nuclear experts analyzing the latest report from global atomic inspectors. (A SINGLE BOMB! AND HERE I THOUGHT THEY WERE CAPABLE OF ACTUALLY DOING SOME DAMAGE. TONIGHT TEL-AVIV CAN SLEEP AT EASE)
The figures detailing Iran's progress were contained in a routine update on Wednesday from the International Atomic Energy Agency, which has been conducting inspections of the country's main nuclear plant at Natanz. The report concluded that as of early this month, Iran had made 630 kilograms, or about 1,390 pounds, of low-enriched uranium.
Several experts said that was enough for a bomb, but they cautioned that the milestone was mostly symbolic, because Iran would have to take additional steps.(DID HE SAY SYMBOLIC? OH, THAT MAKES ME FEEL MORE AT EASE) Not only would it have to breach its international agreements and kick out the inspectors, but it would also have to further purify the fuel and put it into a warhead design — a technical advance that Western experts are unsure Iran has yet achieved. (SO THEY'LL ACHIEVE IT IN WHAT, 3 MONTHS?)
"They clearly have enough material for a bomb," said Richard Garwin, a top nuclear physicist who helped invent the hydrogen bomb and has advised Washington for decades. "They know how to do the enrichment. Whether they know how to design a bomb, well, that's another matter." (NO PROBLEM. I'M SURE THEY AREN'T CAPABLE OF FINDING ANYONE THAT CAN ASSIST THEM WITH THAT)
MR. PRESIDENT, NOW YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO TALK TO THE IRANIANS ABOUT. OBVIOUSLY WITHOUT PRECONDITIONS.................RIGHT?
