Iran’s Nuclear Bomb

Iran is only weeks away from obtaining enough fissile material to build its first nuclear bomb, announced the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on May 31. An IAEA resolution condemning Iran’s actions was followed closely by Germany’s publication of an intelligence report that exposed Iran’s attempts to secretly obtain technology destined to be used in nuclear bombs and ballistic missiles.

On June 8, Germany, France, the United States and the United Kingdom submitted a resolution to condemn Iran’s actions. According to the IAEA, Iran now has 95 pounds of uranium enriched to 60 percent. Three months ago, Iran had only 22 pounds of uranium, an increase of 430 percent. With little effort, Iran’s nuclear scientists could raise the enrichment level to 90 percent in two weeks, making it possible to build the bomb.
