Iran producing gas used for uranium enrichmentThe Iranian Fars news agency is reporting that Iran has produced more than 300 tons of UF6, otherwise known as uranium hexaflouride gas. A conversion facility in Ifshahan reprocesses raw uranium, known as yellowcake, into uranium hexaflouride gas. The gas is then taken to Natanz and fed into the centrifuges for enrichment. According to Fars, centrifuges spin uranium gas into enriched material, which at low levels is used to produce nuclear fuel to generate electricity. But further enrichment makes it suitable for use in building nuclear weapons.
How much longer will the world keep pretending that Iran does not intend to produce nuclear weapons?
