An official site belonging to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has quoted a senior conservative cleric as saying that Iran has attained the knowledge to build a nuclear bomb but doesn’t want to use it.

The IRGC site of Kurdistan province today quoted Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, a leading cleric who often leads Friday prayers in Tehran, as telling a group of IRGC commanders in Iran’s Kurdistan province that Iran had the expertise to enrich uranium not just to the 5% and 20% levels required for civilian uses but to higher levels required for a bomb.

    The Iranians seem to be a little behind the times. Obama has already brought death to a America. You go walmart and their are more Muslims than Hispanics it will not be long before the hispanics are saying Allahu Tostada.

  • What are you doing,Mr.McCain and Mr.Obama?

    This is news? Iran has had the “know-how” to build a nuke for years now. The know-how isn’t the problem. The problem is getting the nuclear material needed and having a reliable means of delivery. My understanding is they have the latter, but not the former…not yet anyway. That in no small part due to Israel and the US sabotaging their efforts.

    That strategy won’t work forever tho, and I’m certain talks will not stop them. If something isn’t done soon Iran WILL have nukes. It’s not a question of if, it’s a question of when. Currently I believe neither the US nor Israel has the will to start a war over the issue, tho in time I think they’ll wish they had.

    Of course they can enrich to whatever level they desire, but that doesn’t make a bomb.

    They have experimented with the other aspects of building a bomb, which is against they’re NPT agreements.

    Now that oil is so cheap, nuclear power makes no financial sense for Iran.

  • If Obama and friends take much more time chatting with Iran, they will be discussing how to help the Middle East recover from an atomic war.
