Eh, but they are using the 20 percent in their research reactor. It's a long way off from the 90 percent enriched they need. Also, I think you missed the point of my first post, but it wasn't really that important.
It's funny that the US started them on this nuclear path isn't it?edit on 18-2-2012 by GogoVicMorrow because: (no reason given)

Would the esteemed member from the great state of denial yield for a question?
What you see are facts. Iran has acknowledged the concerns the West has while meeting with the IAEA. Iran claims to be transparent yet they have been anything but. You dismiss the visit request, even though its a violation of the IAEA agreement. The recent ability for inspectors to go back to Iran is nothing but a stalling tactic. People also seem to ignore the fact that Iran went a year plus refusing inspectors any access to their facilities, again against IAEA agreements.
If left unchecked and Iran acquires the bomb and decides to use it, then what? Should we speculate some more while ignoring the incident and discuss how speculative it is??
Iran however has lied about it's nuclear weapons project repeatedly, has threatened to destroy the US, Isreal, and all of USA's allies in the Gulf and in Europe.
