RIP earth.

Despite being a terrible weapon if used, it might be a good thing politically. Nuclear weapons would act as a deterrence against the US from continuing its cowardly bullying third world Islamic nations.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

a announcement of an announcement? who does he think he is? the gaming industry??



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

- George Orwell, ‘1984’

My first guess would be that the announcement has nothing to do with weapons grade uranium and will instead be something along the lines of they have successfully constructed their first reactor grade uranium fuel rods.

That was the basis of Iran's insistance on producing enriched uranium despite the repercussions for anyone who's forgotten.

My second guess would be that if they further enriched U-235 from fuel grade to weapons grade, they wouldn't announce it until after they had their first successful test of a fission chain reaction and possessed a suitable delivery vehicle to deploy a miniaturized fission device.

nobody wants a informed opinion in this thread! WTH are you thinking??

I also personally don't like Israel having nukes. The more countries in the Middle East with nukes the less stable it is.

At least between the USA and the USSR the divide was idealogical, a fanatical religious divide seems far more dangerous to me. I don't know if M.A.D. is enough to stop fanatics from lobbing nuclear weapons around.

People only resort to violence if A: they are reasonably sure they can get what they want with it or B: they feel they have nothing to lose. Iran is really in neither position, or at least the Iranian leadership itself is not.

They will hold

That applies to Iran in its current position (and also Israel in its current position). The Mid-East is so volatile and Iran isn't particularly stable. God knows what could happen down the track, whatever happens I'm pretty sure it'd be safer without Iran having nukes.


so why is the U.S. and many other countries allowed to have nukes but Iran isn't? I'm pretty sure the president of iran is not that dumb to actually launch them missle. This is proabably just an attempt to gain some power in world politics.

It's sad that you think that.

I don't like the USA (or anyone) having nukes. But the USA, Britain, France, Russia and China it's hard to imagine them getting into a situation where somebody who would use the nukes would get into the position where they could use them. With Israel, India, North Korea, Pakistan and Iran (especially the last three of these) it's not beyond imagination that somebody could get into a position to use them who might use them - despite the consequences.



This really pains me to see that many people (this goes to many nations) nowadays have lost respect for the resources that they use. Uranium and other radioactive material are produced only during supernovae, the ending life cycles of gigantic stars tens of thousands of times the size of our sun. You will never come across the conditions required to naturally produce uranium elsewhere. It is quite amazing that we actually have such radioactive material here on earth, proof of these massive stars that lived probably millions of years ago and since turned into neutron stars or a black holes.

Yet what do we do with that limited amount of material that we have here on earth, point it at each other and incite fear, rather than further improve our knowledge or use it for the better of humanity. Truly a facepalm to mankind.
