The entire world is falling around Joe Biden. He has no idea what to do.
And the military has shocking news for Joe Biden that has him panicking.
Back in 2015, President Barack Obama lead the infamous Iran Deal that was supposed to help prevent Iran from being able to build a nuclear weapon.
The deal came under intense criticism for not actually making it more difficult for Iran to be able to continue their quest to build nuclear weapons for their military.
Many pointed out that dropping sanctions as a part of the “deal” was nonsensical and only benefitted Iran while the U.S. had no real proof that Iran wasn’t going to continue to try to build nukes.
Under the deal, Iran was not supposed to enrich uranium beyond 3.64%. Iran outright admitted that they’ve been enriching uranium up to 60% and U.S. intel recently found out that Iran has been enriching it into the 80s and 90s, which is when it could start being used for nuclear weapons.
Now a top U.S. military official has reported that Iran could currently have the capability to build a nuclear bomb.
Colin Kahl, the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, said before the U.S. House of Representatives that Iran could get enough nuclear material for a bomb in “about 12 days.”
Iran could make enough fissile for one nuclear bomb in “about 12 days,” a top U.S. Defense Department official said on Tuesday, down from the estimated one year it would have taken while the 2015 Iran nuclear deal was in effect.
Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Colin Kahl made the comment to a House of Representatives hearing when pressed by a Republican lawmaker why the Biden administration had sought to revive the deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)
“Because Iran’s nuclear progress since we left the JCPOA has been remarkable. Back in 2018, when the previous administration decided to leave the JCPOA it would have taken Iran about 12 months to produce one bomb’s worth of fissile material. Now it would take about 12 days,” Kahl said.
Newsmax has also reported, however, that some U.S. officials don’t believe that Iran has the know how to finally build a functioning nuclear bomb.
That’s not really any consolation though.
Back in 2015, Iran accepted the deal because they could simply say that they are halting its nuclear capabilities in exchange for some economic relief with sanctions being lifted as a result of the deal.
But as we all know, trusting Iran on their deal was just mindless. So in the end, they got their economic relief, and secretly continued to build their nuclear programs even while the deal was active.
In 2018, Donald Trump reimposed economic sanctions and largely threw out the flawed 2015 deal, but there’s still work to be done.
Some Republicans in the House have said that more sanctions on Iran are necessary to make them finally crack and prove that they will stop trying to build a nuclear bomb.
Department of Defense officials have said this is a major international security concern that needs to be dealt with right now.
But what is Joe Biden doing? Basically nothing.
