    Iran to enrich uranium to 20% !

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 09 Feb 2010, 11:57 am

    The Iranian atomic power scientists released yesterday that theyare no able to enrich uranium to 20% and this is needed to provide isotopes for medical used and for running the first test reactor.

    See this article HERE

    This brings up certain questions that need to be considered as far as Western security is concerned as such moves will eventually lead to the Iranians being able to enrich uranium to a level that could be used in an atomic bomb.

    The main question here is: Do we believe that Iran just wants nuclear capability to build electricity-generating stations and produce medical isotopes or do they have a long term agenda for getting into the nuclear weapons arms race.

    A further question arises from this: Should we in the West - as members of the nuclear weapons club - even think about active sanctions or military sanctions on Iran if they continue to go forwards on this path ?

    NB..... It has been reported that before Iran could make an atomic bomb that would be compact enough to be carried on a missile they would need to enrich uranium to a level of 90%!

    What do you good folks say about this ?

    I read yesterday that the Iranian atomic scientists are already able to enrich uranium to 70%. If this is the case I think that it is not going to be long before they join that atomic bomb club.

    With Armadinnergong in charge over there I think that this is a terrifying prospect, don't you ?

    It used to be Libya and Mad Dog Ghaddafi that were the nutcases in the middle East but now that award has been passed on to Iran and Ahmadinejad.

    It certainly sounds like this crazy president wants to destabilise the middle east with his sabre-rattling postures.

    It is no wonder that the west is trying hard to get the revolutionary protesters on the streets of Tehran to overthrow this rabble-rouser.

    I think that the Iranian psyche is such that they have to try to look strong against the west. Even if the Iranian revolutionaries might have changed sides to a degree the president has to appear to be strong and able to stand up to the west if he is to be allowed to stay in post.

    It only takes one bullet from "friend" or foe in that country to change top level leadership.

    All the Arab countries feel the need to 'big themselves up' because historically they would be invaded by their neighbours if they kept quiet too long. It is part of the politics of the Middle East, whether they have what they claim or no.

    So right HG !

    The politics of the middle-east are STILL set in the ways of a thousand years ago.

    In those days if the arab tribes could not find anyone to fight that was a true "enemy" they would fight against each-other. Nothing has changed in their mindset since then !

    Because of this idea I don't think that ANY arab-style country can be trusted with atomic weapons as I fear that they would not hesitate to use them if they could.
