Waiting for a Liberal Response On This Story
Iran has more enriched uranium
than previously thought.The U.N. atomic agency has found traces of highly enriched uranium at an Iranian site linked to the country's defense ministry, diplomats said Friday. The finding added to concerns that Tehran was hiding activities that could be used to make nuclear arms.
The diplomats, who demanded anonymity in exchange for revealing the confidential information, said the findings were preliminary and still had to be confirmed through other lab tests. But they said the density of enrichment appeared close to or beyond weapons grade--the level used to make nuclear warheads.

:Whatever the explanation, the implication is crystal clear: the Iranians have weapons-grade uranium somewhere. The gap between the enrichment level of energy-production and weapons-grade material (5% vs 90%+) is so wide that there is no other explanation for the possession of the latter. And with its discovery on equipment used at the former military base at Lavizan -- a site demolished by the Iranians after the US discovered its covert nuclear program -- it confirms that Iran possesses it for military purposes, not peaceful energy production, for which that level of enrichment is unsuitable anyway.Rick Moran
:Why the IAEA has not revealed this is obvious; if they did so, then they would have to do something about it. And that means confrontation, something that ElBaradei and his cohorts try to avoid at all costs. Never mind that their job is to “speak truth to nuclear power.” Never mind that the Security Council relies on them to give members all the facts so that one of the momentus decisions of the young century can be made.Jeff Goldstein
:That those other countries rarely go about noting that once they get nuclear weapons, they will wipe out other countries in the region, doesn’t seem to bother these nuclear relativists. After all, fair is fair, right?AJ Strata
:Think dirty bombs. That make the real danger a series of small, human transported, dirty bombs deployed through out America. And don’t forget that Iran’s leader thinks he is the last messiah, who will bring on the end of the world.Flopping Aces
:This proves that their nuclear program is NOT for civilian purposes. To have highly enriched uranium means only one thing. A nuclear weapon.
