In response to Trump sanctions Iran is ramping up enrichment of low-grade uranium.

I wondered when they would finally get fed up.

Courtesy of CNN:

Iran is ramping up enrichment of low-grade uranium and will pass the limit it is allowed to stockpile under the nuclear deal in 10 days, a spokesman for the Iranian atomic agency announced Monday.

During a news conference at the Arak heavy water reactor facility, Behrouz Kamalvandi said that Iran had increased low enriched uranium production fourfold and would exceed the limit of 300 kilograms by June 27, in the latest blow to the nuclear deal agreed between Tehran and world powers in 2015.

“If Iran feels that the sanctions have been reinstated or not lifted, Iran has the right to partly or on the whole suspend its commitments,” Kamalvandi said, referring to sanctions that were lifted as part of the nuclear deal but have since been reinstated by the US. The Trump administration withdrew from the pact in May 2018.

However, he said there was still time for European countries to save the nuclear deal if they “abide by their commitments.”

After exceeding the limit, Iran will accelerate uranium enrichment to 3.7%, Kamalvandi said — above the 3.67% mandated by the nuclear deal. Enrichment at this percentage is enough to continue powering parts of the country’s energy needs, but not enough to ever build a nuclear bomb.

It sounds as if Iran does not really want to break the nuclear deal they made with the Obama Administration but are sending a message to the Trump Administration to quit fucking with them. 

It also appears that the only real thing holding the deal together would be if Europe continues to hold up their end of the bargain. 

That indicates that Trump has squandered America’s ability to deal with Iran and has transferred that bargaining power to the Europeans and any other countries willing to step up.

China has already stepped in to fill part of that void, and I am sure Russia is looking to take advantage as well. 

In the meantime, the Trump Administration is making accusations against Iran and looking to start a war.

    Take Note>”In a separate development, Iran said it had broken up a cyber spying network run by the CIA. It said several US spies had been arrested in different countries.”

    a “special purpose vehicle” >known as Instex

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was a staunch opponent of the nuclear deal, called for international sanctions to be reimposed immediately “should Iran deliver on its current threats”.

    “In any event, Israel will not allow Iran to get nuclear weaponry,” – Iran’s further threat today to increase its level of enrichment to a stage that would bring it much closer to “weapons-grade” material adds another element of risk into an already combustible mix.”

    Keep in thought when Israel, SA, and the warmongers of our country start screaming about building a bomb that Iran’s uranium is only at 3.something%, to get to bomb grade it has to be at a minimum above 80% enriched. To make this happen it has to be run thru a refinement process which takes a long time to increase its radioactive quality. To make bomb grade the material has to be run thru the process several times and it can take many, many months at a minimum just to raise its bomb grade quality. When they start screaming bloody murder which they will understand for Iran this will not be done quickly if it is done at all..
