Iran announced the start of production of weapons-grade uranium


The Iranian authorities announced the start of work on uranium enrichment at the level of 20 percent at the nuclear plant in Fordow. This was announced by the official representative of the Iranian government, Ali Rabia.


Earlier, Tehran ratified the earlier adopted by the legislative body of the state a law on countering US sanctions measures, which provides for uranium enrichment at the level of 20 percent (that is, Iran actually announced the production of weapons-grade uranium). This document also assumes the start of work in the country of a new generation of centrifuges - at least 174 IR-6 centrifuges (their number is planned to increase to a thousand within a year), as well as about a thousand IR-2M centrifuges.

However, the nuclear deal allows Tehran only 3,67% uranium enrichment, as well as the use of the first generation IR-1 centrifuges.

The law adopted in Iran also provides for the government's abandonment of the additional IAEA protocol on expanded nuclear production verification in case the parties fail to comply with the agreement of the deal within two months after the "entry into force" of the law. US sanctions limit the supply of Iranian oil to European countries, and also impede the normalization of banking structures.

The adoption of the document was being prepared for a long time, but in connection with the assassination of Iranian nuclear physicist Mohsen Fahridzadeh, the Iranian parliament considered this law in an accelerated manner.

            Without the American "humanitarian aid" Israel successfully fought against the many times outnumbering Arab armies armed with modern Soviet weapons at that time.

            And someone who, but Israel, has proved its right to keep fingers fanned out in practice.

                        Since 1948, Israel has not had cardinal changes in the political regime, state management mechanisms and other cardinal social, political and economic changes that the Russian Empire / USSR / Russia had.

                      Cyril... The basis of the Israeli army was a brigade created by Great Britain from persons of Jewish nationality. This brigade received its combat experience fighting the Nazis in Italy.

                      In fact, Israel already has there was an army... And so, Israel, possessing a superior power in this region, instead of negotiating with the indigenous illiterate population ... began to expel people from their land.

                      The Jews did not explain to the tribes of this region why they, the Jews, were building their cities on a foreign land, where this population had lived for centuries. request

        Without the American "humanitarian aid" you can be called nobody.

        Here you confused something, it was Russia in the 90s that survived thanks to the American humanitarian aid - all these "Bush's legs". And comparing the Israeli military with the Ukrainians and Armenians in general is complete nonsense. lol

          Honor the elder bush laughing He tells what the "legs" were for and why Russia survived.

          The United States provided military aid to Israel in the amount of $ 1,6 billion, and Germany, under the guise of assistance to victims of the fascist genocide, - 3,45 billion marks. Other countries also provided support. Israel itself in 1965-1966 officially spent 40-46% of its budget on military expenditures, and there were also secret items of expenditure on the army. The entire adult population of Israel, including women, was called up for military service, and teenagers aged 14-16 underwent military training in the specialized Gadna units.

      The point is that it is no longer such a problem to enrich uranium to 90%. The most important stage is 20%.

    The desire for hype is irresistible ... How can uranium enrichment at the level of 20% be called weapons grade? Uranium with a 235U content of over 20% is called highly enriched or weapons grade.

    Syria abandoned a whole class of weapons as one of the conditions for non-interference in its internal squabbles, but this did not prevent the United States from putting together an international coalition from its vassals and taking part in internal Syrian squabbles. Iran did not learn this lesson - it is Syria, and this is Iran. Now it has apparently come to light that trusting the United States and its vassals is more dear to ourselves, time was just wasted.

    The USA and Israel have a strange logic - first they entered into an agreement to stop the development of nuclear weapons by Iran, and then the United States unilaterally withdraws from it.
    And along with this, they begin to accuse Iran of non-compliance with something, although the IAEA inspections did not find violations. Iran's current action is a consequence of the steps taken by the United States and Israel. And if there is a conflict, they should be found guilty of unleashing it.

      Why "strange" logic? Everything in the "trend" of providing information in the 21st century - a lie said "from above" is a priori "true", a lie on the pages of "democratic" media, a priori is "true" and is not subject to doubt, facts are not needed to accuse, the main thing is to name someone then "bad", and then blame for all mortal sins, the first to say, "he is guilty!" and do not accept any excuses, such as, he is "a priori bad" means that excuses cannot be accepted, no matter how truthful they might look. The trend of this century: "attack yourself first, blame the enemy in everything you deem necessary and connect the chorus of the media" on the balance sheet "to support your accusations and that's it, the deed is done, the enemy will never be washed away, he will spend his infinite resources on return of your "good name", and will always be one step behind you, which means you will have the initiative and the enemy is doomed ... "....
