Why would Iran need weapons-grade uranium if they aren’t interested in nuclear weapons?



Why would Iran need weapons-grade uranium if they arent interested in nuclear weapons

Iran’s government is series of contradictions wrapped in lies. That pretty much sums up everything about the Middle Eastern nation as they desperately try to salvage their economy after harsh sanctions imposed by the Trump administration.

On one hand, they have claimed for years their nuclear program has nothing to do with weapons and they have no ambitions of building nuclear bombs. But now they’re threatening to enrich their uranium to weapons-grade levels, making it useless for anything other than nuclear bombs.

But desperate times call for desperate measures, and Iran is clearly desperate. Newt Gingrich thinks they’re close to breaking.

And somehow, this is all supposed to jibe.

Iran warns Europe it ‘will take next step’ to enrich uranium to weapons-grade level if new deal isn’t reached

Speaking at a Cabinet meeting in Tehran, Rouhani said: “In any amount that we want, any amount that is required, we will take over 3.67.

“Our advice to Europe and the United States is to go back to logic and to the negotiating table. Go back to understanding, to respecting the law and resolutions of the U.N. Security Council. Under those conditions, all of us can abide by the nuclear deal.”

Iran’s nuclear deal currently bars it from enriching uranium above 3.67%, which is enough for nuclear power plants but far below the 90% needed for weapons.

They were breaching the nuclear deal within weeks after it was signed, testing nuclear-capable ballistics missiles despite the nuclear agreement clearly barring such activities. It has also been assumed their recent and sudden increase in the amount of uranium they have available could only have happened if they’ve been accumulating it secretly all along.

The bottom line is this: Iran wants nuclear weapons. They’ve been working towards building them this whole time. They have been breaching the nuclear deal since it was signed. And they’ve been lying about their intentions to the whole world.
