Iran Has Uranium for Two Nukes

Iran apparently is gearing up for their own response to the West's dithering. The United Nations is reporting that the Islamic Republic has enough uranium for two nuclear weapons, according to a new dossier.

The toughly worded report says that Iran has expanded work at one of its nuclear sites. It also describes, step by step, how inspectors have been denied access to a series of facilities, and how Iran has refused to answer inspectors' questions on a variety of activities, including what the agency called the "possible existence" of "activities related to the development of a nuclear payload for a missile."

The report also says that Iran has new centrifuges ready that could enrich the substance to twenty percent-- a relatively small technical step to getting it to nuclear weapons grade.
