The Washington Times reports that Iran currently has enough low enriched nuclear material for three bombs and will have enough highly enriched uranium for a more powerful bomb within two months.
While Israelis are protesting a housing shortage and Americans have been arguing about the budget, Iran has slowly built up a nuclear arsenal that could have deadly consequences for the two democracies and allies. Iran has also been testing and improving long range missiles and has been improving its navy to fire such long range missiles.
It is estimated that Iran will have enough highly enriched uranium for one nuclear bomb within two months and currently has enough low-enriched uranium for three nuclear bombs.
Iran is also perfecting its missile-delivery systems. Recently, the Revolutionary Guards held war games in which they launched several long-range ballistic missiles from missile silos. They also successfully tested two long-range ballistic missiles, capable of carrying a nuclear warhead, into the Indian Ocean. The guards’ ballistic missiles have a range of 1,200 miles, covering all U.S. bases in the Middle East and all ofIsrael, and now they possess missiles from North Korea with a range of 2,000 miles, which covers most of Western Europe.
The Iranian navy has also been busy expanding its operation on the orders of Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has emphasized the navy’s strategic importance in protecting the Islamic republic’s interests and confronting its enemies.
These are truly terrifying developments. While the media might be board of discussing Iran, the threat of a dangerous adversary in the Middle East is growing daily and people are too wrapped up in their domestic issues to take notice. I hope someone is watching and will act before it is too late.
