Iran Claims It Has Enriched Uranium To 60% Purity

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Real, or just a way to attempt to demand more stuff from China Joe-Kamala?

Iran says it has enriched uranium with 60% purity

Iran started enriching uranium up to 60% purity on Friday after an attack targeted its Natanz nuclear plant, Tehran’s parliament speaker said.

Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf tweeted: “I am proud to announce that at 00:40 last night, and on the night of the pilgrimage of Sayyid al-Shuhada, young and pious Iranian scientists were able to obtain a product of 60% enriched uranium.”

He added: “Congratulations to the brave people of Islamic Iran on this success.”

The alleged enrichment level is now at its highest ever and comes in the wake of a sabotage at the Natanz nuclear plant last week. Iran said Israel was responsible for the attack.

Though 60% enrichment of the chemical element is is a record high for Iran, it is still below the 90% threshold required for nuclear weapons.

Friday’s announcement marks a significant escalation of tensions in the Middle East and casts doubt over the chances of finding any middle ground on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal.

The 2015 accord between Iran and six nations — Germany, China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States — is currently under discussion among representatives in Vienna.

The officials are hoping to resuscitate a deal that has been on life support ever since former US President Donald Trump announced Washington’s withdrawal.

This is all about attempting to sway Biden, extorting him to give Iran all sorts of stuff while removing every single sanction, and all Biden gets back is Iran pretending to abide by the deal that they were breaking the minute Obama signed it. Iran never once hit the 60% threshold, even before the silly Iran deal, when they were mostly free to do so.

(Jerusalem Post) Former IDF intelligence chief Aharon Ze’evi Farkash told The Jerusalem Post that “I would treat the announcement at this point as a signal of intent to improve its [Iran’s] negotiating hand on the eve of returning to negotiations this week in Vienna with the EU-3.”


Rather, the threat or any 60% enrichment could be minimal and symbolic so as not to risk getting so close to the nuclear threshold that Israel might feel the need to launch a major preemptive strike.

BTW, where are they getting all this uranium and enrichment infrastructure? Even if Trump pulled the U.S. out, the rest of the nations were still in it. Weren’t they supposed to give all that stuff up? Maybe China Joe could send them pallets of cash.

    I think Iran just took one more little step. I can’t wait for them to nuke Israel. That will be a happy day. :cool:

    Of course if that happens, the USA will have to give Israel trillions of dollars to rebuild, so maybe this wouldn’t be a good idea.
