Surprise: Iran will enrich uranium to 20%

I was four days off. Or maybe I wasn't

In a post two weeks ago, I predicted that on February 11 - the anniversary of the Islamic revolution in Iran - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would announce that his country had succeeded in enriching uranium to 20% purity, which is a key step on the path to nuclear weapons. On Sunday morning, four days early, Ahmadinejad gave the order to start enriching. Will they have anything to show by Thursday? I'm not a nuclear physicist so I cannot say whether it can be done in four days. But if Iran has been working on it all along as I and many others suspect, it's entirely possible.
Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has ordered his country's atomic agency to begin the production of higher enriched uranium.

He said in comments broadcast Sunday on state television: "God willing, 20 percent enrichment will start" to meet Iran's needs. He did not give a date for the start of the enrichment process.

Speaking at a meeting attended by the head of Iran's atomic energy agency, Ali Akbar Salehi, Ahmadinejad said: "Mr. Salehi, begin production of 20 percent" enriched uranium.

Producing enriched uranium is the international community's core concern over Iran's nuclear program since it can be used to make nuclear weapons.
Hey world - wake up! Nothing short of force is going to stop this guy!

Hi Carl.
I do agree that he's been fooling people whole the time and playing for time.
This is a "man" you can't trust one day soon he will lauch a nuclear weapon on Israel.If they don't stop him now.
For all i know he's got already a nuclear weapon ready to test on Feb 11.
