The Obama Administration and other diplomats approved a huge shipment of 130 tons of natural uranium from Russia to Iran.
The diplomats said that the move sought to keep Iran committed to the nuclear deal and was designed to compensate the Islamic Republic for exporting 44 tons of reactor coolant that can be used to create plutonium for nuclear weapons, as Conservative Tribune writes.
However, Tehran did not say what they would use this for. But possibly they could store it to enrich it and export it for use as reactor fuel, since Iran said many times that they have no interest in developing uranium to make nuclear weapons.
Conservative Tribune reports, David Albright, of the Institute of Science and International Security, said the uranium could be enriched to make enough weapons-grade uranium for more than 10 simple nuclear bombs, “depending on the efficiency of the enrichment process and the design of the nuclear weapon,” the AP reported.
The Jewish Press pointed out that last month, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani ordered the country’s nuclear agency to develop nuclear engines that could use uranium enriched to 20 percent. That would imply a future violation of the 2015 nuclear deal, which allows Iran to enrich uranium only to 3.67 percent.
This shipment can be described as many things, but it does not seek to keep Tehran committed to a nuclear pact. One would argue it does just the opposite.
President Obama did another treasonous act by selling America to its enemies. It seems that he is using his last days at the office to make such bad decisions and leave a big scar to us.
