USA Today has published a frightening story this evening that suggests Iranian centrifuges are so numerous and so technologically able that it would take no more than a month for the country to go nuclear once it decides to do so. The details are here. The story has to be seen as part of the struggle in Washington between senators who want to stiffen sanctions against Iran and the Obama administration, which is so intent on its outreach to the mullah regime that it stands opposed to toughening the sanctions regime until after new negotiations begin next month. Remember that the president has said on numerous occasions that Iran cannot be allowed to get the bomb.
You might say it’s a real red line for him.
