Iran may now be just months away from having the bomb - not years, as some had hoped
If you read one article this week, make sure it is this:

"Iran holds enough uranium for bomb" says today's Financial Times of London, basing itself on a new report issued Thursday by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

The IAEA found that Iran now has one ton of low-enriched uranium at its Natanz nuclear facility. Should that material undergo further enrichment, it would produce more than 20kg of fissile material, which is sufficent for a nuclear weapon.

In other words, Iran may now be just months away from having the bomb - not years, as some had hoped.

Indeed, the IAEA, which is an arm of the UN, acknowledged that its previous assessments had "underestimated" the quantity of nuclear materials in Iran's possession.

This means there is even less time remaining to stop the Ayatollahs from crossing the nuclear threshold.

Nonetheless, the Obama administration does not seem to be in any particular hurry to stop them.

We must sound the alarm about this threat, and urge our leaders in Israel and the West to take action - and soon - to prevent the would-be Hitler of Persia from obtaining nuclear weapons. For once Iran does cross that threshold, there will be no turning back. And we absolutely can not allow that to happen.
