I’m SHOCKED to learn that Iran is totally ignoring the U.N.’s Angry Letters
In what should come as a surprise to no one, Iran is continuing to increase its stock-pile of low-enriched uranium. Well, not exactly no one…our president and the letter-writers at the U.N. are probably surprised. They have, after all, been very stern with Iran and demanded that Iran cease its nuclear program. These efforts have been met with hardy laughter from Iran, and a double-face palm from the rest of us.
But experts said a stockpile of this size meant that if Iran chose further to enrich this material to the level needed for nuclear weapons, it would be able to build nearly three bombs. However, Iran’s ability to manufacture a nuclear warhead is still unclear and Tehran says that its nuclear programme has only peaceful purposes.
Only peaceful purposes. Well, that’s a relief. Wait, what? You say they aren’t allowing U.N. weapons inspectors in?
Tehran barred two inspectors in June after claiming they had leaked and fabricated information about the nuclear programme.
The report also found that Iran had continued constructing a heavy water reactor at Arak, but without allowing inspectors full access to the site.
Hmmm…if the nuclear power is only for peaceful purposes, why obstruct the inspectors? Yes, that was rhetorical. You needn’t worry, however, because we can always count on the gift of incompetence:
But Iran also appears to be having some technical difficulties with its enrichment programme. The IAEA report showed that the number of operational centrifuges at the plant at Natanz had again declined from 3,936 in May this year to 3,772 last month. The decline of 164 machines in the space of three months is equivalent to a full “cascade” of centrifuges.
I feel better now. Knowing that Iran will continue to epically fail in its efforts to become nuclear bomb-tastic is like a soft, fluffy pillow to lay my head on at night. Oh, and you don’t need to worry about any of those terrorists who like to hang out in Iran and play basketball and responsibly mentor young men and stuff getting their hands on some nuclear material to construct a dirty bomb. I’m sure Iran’s security is off the hook.
