20 kilos of 20 pct enriched uranium ready: Iran


www.google.com

TEHRAN — Iran said on Sunday it has produced around 20 kilogrammes of 20 percent enriched uranium, in defiance of the world powers who want Tehran to suspend the controversial nuclear work.

"We have produced around 20 kilogrammes of 20 percent enriched uranium and we are working to produce the (fuel) plates," Iran's atomic chief Ali Akbar Salehi told ISNA news agency.

World powers led by Washington want Tehran to suspend its uranium enrichment activity which they suspect masks a nuclear weapons drive, and on June 9 backed a UN Security Council resolution for a fourth set of sanction

Is this going to be the final straw, that will start war? Iran is either putting this out to egg on the U.S. or the U.S. is making this up to gain support for an attack. How long will it be until the U.S. strikes? Why would Iran tell the world that they made 20 kilogrammes of 20% uranium?

I really can't wait to see what the Obama administration has to say in reply to this. Maybe the air strikes will start tonight. The timewave may have been right in picking July 11 2010

20% enriched uranium is nowhere near enough to make a nuclear bomb. But I guess people are so dumb, they could sell it as such.

After all, they believed that Saddam has ICBMs with miniature warheads technology.

Iraq. That third world cesspit hit by 12 years of sanctions and bombardment had ICBMs...


Even 20 kilos of 99% enriched uranium would be enough for what... 2 Hiroshima bombs? Meaning about 24 kilotons?

And those would be only bombs... because to do a nuclear warhead to fit on a missile, that need at least another 5 years of development.

Have you seen this? This story was kind of buried...this agreement where Iran is trying to cooperate about concerns.

Iran to ship low-enriched uranium to Turkey

I'm not sure exactly how related it is but...

So that 20kg of non weapons grade uranium againt iserail and the USA who has tons and tons of weapons grade uranium stuck to the end of IBCM's

Iran is at war with no one and Iserail + the USA are at war with about 20 nations but lets just call it sanctions and restoring the peace.

even with the zionist controlled media i don't think they can cook those figures to gain public suport for an attack on Iran who has every right in the world to build nuclear power stations never mind the right to defend themselves from the nuke subs sitting a few miles out to sea.

How dare the UN act against Iran and be so blind against iserail or do they think we are that stupid.

Iran did vow to keep this program in place....the 20% enrichment one. Guess they weren't kidding. What's 20 kilos good for? I have no clue.

It gets easier to enrich Uranium the more enriched it becomes. Not sure if it's an exponential increase as such, but 20% to 90+ is fairly easy, easier than getting it from the single figures up to 20%.

As Iran requires a shed load of Nuclear fuel I can't see them diverting much if any. I suppose they could skim a little every now and then, and send it to a smaller enrichment site, but this would only work if you kick out the IAEA. That's what the big fuss about the Qom plant was, because it could only enrich small amounts so it looked a tad dodgy.


I think Iran should invest massively in other renewable energy sources to prove their commitment to the concept of renewable energy. Although realistically they shouldn't have to do this, it may help ease the tension and surely reduce international condemnation of their interest in nuclear tech. This obviously would allow them to export yet more natural resources.

Thanks for that. Have you see where Jordan is now getting into this? Apparently they'll be having some similar issues. I believe there have already been some tense talks with Israel and the U.S. about this, although I've been told it might be more about who they work with than that they do it.

Who's afraid of the Jordanian atom

Thanks for the heads up I hadn't heard anything about Jordanian interest in nuclear energy. As if Jordan would allow material to go walk about to a few Israel hating reprobates. I'm fairly certain they don't want an atom bomb going off in their neighbour's yard.

Shocking really, just shows you though, you can do everything by the 'book' have the good grace to contact the world police and still get the door slammed in your face! What chance does Iran have if this is the response Jordan received?

I think there's more to the Jordanian situation than I'm totally understanding so far. Some people in my thread mentioned things that went over my head but are on my to-do list to study. Sure seems as though they were getting treatment similar to if not as intense as what Iran is receiving. However, it could also be for show too.

Here is another article from Press TV about this uranium that is to be delivered to the Tehran Research Reactor in August 2010.

Just in time for the Russian built reactor to go online in September...

Anyone know if Russian nationals will be permanently based in these reactors? Could be a nasty scenario if they are killed in a strike on the plants.
