    Iran 'producing enriched uranium at faster pace'

    Iran 'producing enriched uranium at faster pace' - Telegraph

    Iran's uranium enrichment effort has picked up speed and Tehran could produce enough fissile material needed for a nuclear weapon within four months, experts told US politicians on Wednesday.

    The rate of Iran's uranium enrichment has accelerated despite cyber sabotage from the Stuxnet virus in 2009, the experts said.

    Based on the findings of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), "it's clear that Iran could produce a nuclear weapon very quickly should it wish to do so," said Stephen Rademaker of the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington.

    Iran has produced 3,345 kilos of uranium enriched to 3.5 per cent, according to the IAEA, which if it was enriched further would provide enough uranium for at least two atom bombs, Rademaker told the House Armed Services Committee.

    If the Iran leadership decided to go forward, "it would take them 35 to 106 days to actually have the fissile material for a weapon," he said.

    David Albright, president of the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS), told the same hearing that "it would take Iran at least four months in order to have sufficient weapon grade uranium ... for a nuclear explosive device."

    Uranium 235 must be enriched close to 90 per cent for use in an atom bomb. US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has said that the Iranians are about a year away from producing enough highly-enriched uranium needed for a nuclear weapon, a threshold that Washington views as a "red line."

    More than 9,000 Iranian centrifuges are churning out 158 kilograms of 3.5 per cent enriched uranium a month, three times the production rate compared to mid-2009, when the Stuxnet virus struck the program, Rademaker said.

    The enrichment rate is "three times the rate of production prior to the Stuxnet virus, which many people have suggested somehow crippled their programme."

    "So Stuxnet may have set them back, but not by very much, at least not sufficiently," he added.
    According to the New York Times, President Barack Obama, and his predecessor in the White House, George W. Bush, approved the use of the Stuxnet virus to disrupt Iran's nuclear programme, in the first known sustained US cyber attack.

    Stuxnet – a complex virus developed jointly with Israel – sowed confusion at Iran's Natanz nuclear plant, the Times reported, but the virus later accidentally spread outside of Iran, appearing in computer systems other countries.

    Iranians should pull out of NPT, build nukes and test them. We will have a celebration here on this forum with a really long thread of congratulations.

    It is more than awesome. You have no idea how happy we all will be on that day. It will be a day of pride. I am sure the pride of Iranians themselves will swell beyond measure. Lets hope it is not that far away. And on that Iran will become a true power and no one will dare attack it ever again.

    That is a very holy idea but the problem with nukes is that they are so powerful that, we need a kind of rite of passage and initiation ceremony. The countries that can not work hard and build it themselves, better that they do not have them. Iranians are in the process and hopefully will gain it. Others like Sauds can not. Pakistan can only do two things. Either protect a nation as part of a security agreement like a NATO organization or it can help with initial technical stuff for building the nukes. Pakistan helped Iran and they deserving it worked hard and made it successful. Pakistan helped Libya and Qaddafi did not deserve the help and failed the exam. A teacher can do as much. A teacher can help you learn in initial stages but he/she can not take the exam for you.

    You do not do bad in that department. You could do the same after all it is not for nothing that India is known as the epi centre of Hindutva terrorism

    yes brother you are right. In English they say you can take a camel to water. But you cannot force the camel to drink the water

    iranian scientists are able to build nukes in 2 months time if a order was given. a 60 year old tech isnt so hard to produce, especially for iran(ians)

    wasn't it in news that those group praise India and at the same time condemn Iran and Pakistan actions ?
    wont it be more logical that India gave them the toy as it seems they have more cordial relation with each other ?
