Iran will begin 20 percent uranium enrichment ‘as soon as possible’

Iran nuclear weapons program

The nation of Iran said Saturday that it plans to begin the enrichment of uranium up to 20 percent at its underground Fordo facility “as soon as possible,” as reported by Fox News.

The action would bring Iran close to weapons-grade uranium—a dangerous measure for the West as relations between the Persian nation and America deteriorate. This Sunday mark’s the one-year anniversary of the killing of Qasem Soleimani, an Iranian major general with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, who was planning attacks on American targets in the region, according to U.S. intelligence officials.

Ali Akbar Salehi, the civilian Atomic Energy Organization of Iran who also studied in America, told Iranian state television an analogy to illustrate the country’s leadership to take action.

“We are like soldiers and our fingers are on the triggers,” Salehi said, as reported by Fox. “The commander should command and we shoot. We are ready for this and will produce (20% enriched uranium) as soon as possible.”

The International Atomic Energy Agency acknowledged the enrichment move Friday.

“Iran has informed the agency that in order to comply with a legal act recently passed by the country’s parliament, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran intends to produce low-enriched uranium … up to 20 percent at the Fordo Fuel Enrichment Plant,” the IAEA said.

This news follows a top Iranian official declaring Friday that President Trump and anyone else responsible for the killing of Soleimani will “not be safe on Earth.”

Referring to Trump and US leaders, Iran judiciary chief Ebrahim Raisi said no one, including Trump, are “immune from justice” for their part in the drone strike that killed the top general one year ago, as reported by Fox News.

“They will witness severe revenge,” Raisi said. “What has come so far has only been glimpses.”

As tensions worsen between the two countries, enriched uranium in the hands of the Iranians will only increase tensions and increase fears of potential nuclear fighting.

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
