The Biden admin has spent its time in office playing footsie with the terrorists in Tehran, pondering which concessions to make, while the inevitable happens.
Iran has accumulated enough enriched uranium to build a nuclear bomb, according to new findings from the United Nations atomic agency.
That’s according to the IAEA, which couldn’t be trusted in the first place, so assume that the threshold had been previously met.
The International Atomic Energy Agency also said in a separate report that Iran has failed to provide credible explanations about nuclear material found at several sites in recent years, raising questions about the nature of its nuclear work.
Are there really any questions about why an oil-rich terrorist state had a nuclear program to begin with?
The U.N. nuclear watchdog said that Iran’s stockpile of uranium enriched to 60 percent had grown to 43.3 kilograms (95 pounds), which represented an increase of nearly 10 kilograms (22 pounds) compared to three months ago.
Experts said that the stockpile would provide roughly enough material for an atomic bomb if Iran took the additional step of enriching the uranium to 90 percent purity. Moving from 60 to 90 percent would not pose a technical challenge for Iran, according to arms control experts.
Iran has now accumulated enough enriched uranium to be able to quickly produce more than a significant quantity of HEU (highly enriched uranium) for one bomb, said Daryl Kimball of the Arms Control Association think tank. The time it would take them to do that can now be measured in days, not months or weeks.
Assume that they’ve done it already. There’s no reason not to. The next step will be a formal test, but Iran may want to hold off on going public to see if it can extract any concessions in exchange for another fake deal.
Everyone in the region already knew this which was why the Abraham Accords type activity has only intensified.
Iran also had not informed the U.N. agency of the current location of the nuclear material that was found or of equipment that had been contaminated with uranium particles, the IAEA said.
Iran was given “numerous opportunities” to account for the undeclared nuclear material, the agency said.
And so the clock ticks forward. International measures have proven to be useless. A Republican administration coming in 2024 might impose tougher sanctions, but anything stronger would come up against the anti-war caucus which is firmly entrenched in the GOP’s activist wing now. A fundamental difference might be that it would not obstruct Israeli or other local action the way that the Biden administration would. But we are closer than ever to Islamic terrorists having nuclear capability.
The era that comes next may make us feel nostalgic for when Muslim terrorists merely hijacked planes to ram into buildings.
