Iran starts enriching uranium to 60% in response to sabotage at nuclear site

Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf, the speaker of Iran’s parliament, said his country has started enriching uranium up to 60% purity in response to the sabotage at its Natanz nuclear facility. The attack, widely believed to have carried out by Israel, blew up the power grid, which affected some of the site’s centrifuges. However, Qalibaf didn’t say the amount of uranium Iran would enrich up to 60%.

Just a piece of trivia, depending on reactor efficiency 3-5% U235 is required for power plants, while 90% is the threshold ratio for U235 vs U238 in order to achieve critical reaction in fission bombs. Enrichment involves gassifying the mostly U238 ore, spinning it at crazy RPM, and continually siphoning off by isotope weight to concentrate the U235 isotopes. The remaining U238 is useful for anti armor munitions and the semi stable U236 can be processed into Plutonium, harder to make go critical than gun type U235 bombs, but certainly fissionable with an implosion device. Point being there's no non weapon reason to enrich past 5%.

Apologists, Obummer supporters, and Biden will keep on saying they ever had an intention of staying peaceful with their nuke program. Just having the capability to enrich to 60% now proves they never did, it takes a whole different level of equipment investment and preparation than enriching for a power plant.

Maybe Biden and company will finance Iran nuclear ambitions like they did before.

Who would bet iran would blow up their own nuclear sites just to have an excuse to enrich more uranium. I mean they shot down their own plane before trump responded after launching missiles into iraq on US sites

How many times do people in the middle, libertarian, and conservative areas need to be right before the people who claim to be progressive will actually listen. I know it sucks to be wrong, but this has gone way beyond crazy

Just had to chime in. There are a lot of dumb comments on here. There's a reason why the rest of the world looks at us and laughs. We are a country full of ignorant people with, thanks to social media, the proof to back it up.

Anyone else worried this may escalate to the US going to war with Israel to defend Iran? 🤡🌍
