Iran crosses the line: can now enrich Uranium up to 20% grade

Debkafile had an alarming story yesterday regarding Iran's nuclear capabilities.

According to Debkafile, "Attaining the ability to enrich uranium up to 20 percent grade brings Iran dangerously close to 'break-out' point for a nuclear weapon capability, Debkafile's intelligence sources report. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad promised the 'good news' would be announced during the Feb. 1-11 celebrations of the Islamic Revolution. The 'news' was the subject of an urgent cabinet meeting in Jerusalem last week."

The Debkafile piece goes on to say, "
The only straight talk from any Western leader has come from French president Nicolas Sarkozy. Saturday, Jan. 23, he told visiting Lebanese prime minister Saad Hariri that France has evidence Iran is developing nuclear weapons contrary to its claims. He warned that Israel "would not stand by while Iran develops nuclear weapons."

It's a sad day when France is the apparent leader on something as significant as standing up to a dangerous regime very near to attaining nuclear weapons.
