Iranian Nuke

Iran apparently has enough material to make one nuclear bomb. The world just got a whole lot more dangerous.

In a development that comes as the Obama administration is drawing up its policy on negotiations with Tehran over its nuclear programme, UN officials said Iran had produced more nuclear material than previously thought.

They said Iran had now accumulated more than one tonne of low enriched uranium hexafluoride at a facility in Natanz. If such a quantity were further enriched it could produce more than 20kg of fissile material – enough for a bomb…

The question now is- will anyone act to prevent them from actually producing a nuclear weapon? Because further negotiations aren't going to cut it- and anyone with half a brain cell in Obama's administration must know that.
