Obama has given Iran billions of dollars and now he has approved a huge shipment of uranium which could be enriched to make nuclear weapons.
It is supposed to compensate for Iran turning over reactor coolant, but the nuclear deal is suppose to keep them from developing weapons so why would they give up reactor coolant which is used for energy production and receive uranium which can be used for weapons?
From the AP:
Iran is to receive a huge shipment of natural uranium from Russia to compensate it for exporting tons of reactor coolant, diplomats say, in a move approved by the outgoing U.S. administration and other governments seeking to keep Tehran committed to a landmark nuclear pact.
Two senior diplomats said the transfer recently agreed by the U.S. and five other world powers that negotiated the nuclear deal with Iran foresees delivery of 116 metric tons (nearly 130 tons) of natural uranium. U.N. Security Council approval is needed but a formality, considering five of those powers are permanent Security Council members, they said.
Uranium can be enriched to levels ranging from reactor fuel or medical and research purposes to the core of an atomic bomb. Iran says it has no interest in such weapons and its activities are being closely monitored under the nuclear pact to make sure they remain peaceful.
Tehran already got a similar amount of natural uranium in 2015 as part of negotiations leading up to the nuclear deal, in a swap for enriched uranium it sent to Russia. But the new shipment will be the first such consignment since the deal came into force a year ago…
David Albright, whose Institute of Science and International Security often briefs U.S. lawmakers on Iran’s nuclear program, says the shipment could be enriched to 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 Obama administration is approving enough uranium shipments to Iran to make more than 10 ‘simple nuclear bombs’ and if anyone believes Iran is just using this uranium for energy purposes than their dreaming.
Meanwhile, Iran is still provoking our Navy in the Strait of Hormuz. This past weekend the United States Navy had to actually fire warning shots at incoming Iranian attack ships before they relented:
