and Obama said everyone had more time. Well thing again, cause on this new oil going way higher.
Iran is on the threshold of being able to create weapons-grade uranium at a plant it has heavily fortified against Israeli attack, diplomats told The Associated Press on Thursday, calling into question an Israeli claim that Iran had slowed its nuclear time table.One of three diplomats who discussed the issue said Iran was now technically ready within days to ramp up its production of 20 percent enriched uranium at its Fordo facility by nearly 700 centrifuges. That would double present output, and cut in half the time it would take to acquire enough of the substance needed to make a nuclear weapon, reducing it to just over three months.
Such a move would raise the stakes for Israel, which has said it believes the world has until next summer to stop Iran before it can get nuclear material and implied it would have time to decide whether to strike Fordo and other Iranian facilities.
This is something to watch. Dont know if Israel or the US will stop them, that is how much of a fight is US willing to put up with out concrete evidence of a wmd program in Iran. Unlike former president Bush, president Obama might wait until after Iran tests a nuclear weapon and at that point its too late. Perhaps not fair comparison of Iraq to Iran, and Iran is too smart to give an excuse to attack.
