President Obama gave billions to Iran as part of the Iran nuclear deal.
Now he is doubling down on the horrible moves with this news today.
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.”
Obama not only wouldn’t stop the Iranians from getting nuclear weapons, he seems bent on giving them every opportunity to actually create them.
Even giving them the material to create them.
This despite Iran not even complying with the rules of the very bad deal.
This despite Iran continuing to chant ‘Death to America” every chance they can.
This despite continuing to commit acts of terrorism against other countries and its own people.
This despite still posing a threat to our sailors and ships at sea as recently as this past weekend.
Not to mention, of course, the kidnapping of our sailors last year.
How far can Obama go in what is truly a dangerous endeavor?
Fortunately, only 11 days left…
