Iran’s nuclear facility ‘so deep underground’ airstrikes ‘likely couldn’t reach it’
Pacifism from global leaders and particularly the United States may have given Iran ample time to irreversibly become a nuclear power. The Associated Press describes a site that could prove devastation is within Iran’s reach:
“Near a peak of the Zagros Mountains in central Iran, workers are building a nuclear facility so deep in the earth that it is likely beyond the range of a last-ditch U.S. weapon designed to destroy such sites, according to experts and satellite imagery analyzed by The Associated Press.”
Iran has disregarded every single nuclear treaty and been producing uranium ‘close to weapons-grade levels’. The photos and videos described by the Associated Press show “Iran has been digging tunnels in the mountain near the Natanz nuclear site, which has come under repeated sabotage attacks amid Tehran’s standoff with the West over its atomic program.”
The Associated Press adds, since demise of the nuclear accord, Iran has said it is enriching uranium up to 60%, though inspectors recently discovered the country had produced uranium particles that were 83.7% pure. That is just a short step from reaching the 90% threshold of weapons-grade uranium.
In February, international inspectors estimated Iran’s stockpile was over 10 times what it was under the Obama-era deal, with enough enriched uranium to allow Tehran to make “several” nuclear bombs, according to the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
As for President Joe Biden’s White House, and Israel’s prime minister, they have said they won’t allow Iran to build a nuclear weapon. “We believe diplomacy is the best way to achieve that goal, but the president has also been clear that we have not removed any option from the table,” the White House said in a statement to the AP.
As always, the Islamic Republic denies it is seeking nuclear weapons, though officials in Tehran now openly discuss their ability to pursue one.
