IAEA Iran's Uranium & The Bomb
By Micah Halpern

Sunday October 10, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

The IAEA, the International Atomic Energy Agency, which is the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog, announced that Iran has successfully enriched 120kilo of uranium. 120kilo is 265lbs of uranium.

That is an enormous amount of uranium

Iran countered the announcement explaining that, according to their agreement. Iran was supposed to receive 20% enriched uranium - but that uranium was never delivered. So, the Iranians made it themselves.

Of course, the agreement also stipulates that Iran is not to enrich greater than 3.75% uranium. But for Iran, that’s beside the point.

According to scientists who specialize in uranium, Iran is very close to the threshold for making a rudimentary nuclear bomb. A rudimentary bomb would require 375lbs, or 175kilo, of enriched uranium. At 265lbs, they are almost there.

This is – to put it mildly, a very worrisome situation.
