Iranian scientists have reached “nuclear weapons breakout capability,” according to a new report based on findings of the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency.
The Institute for Science and International Security report concludes Iran does not yet have a nuclear weapon but does have enough low-enriched uranium for a single nuclear weapon.
If we know everything (always a doubtful prospect) Iran still has a ways to go before they have a deployable device, and this doesn’t provide anything new as to their intentions. It has always been quite obvious to me that Iran has been seeking weapons capability, but certainly there are many who don’t believe that and this bit of news doesn’t provide anything to convince them otherwise.
Obviously though the window in which we can act to influence them on this issue is closing.
