16 Days: Iran with a Nuke? Germany: "Iran, defying United Nations Security Council demands to halt its nuclear program, may be capable of making a nuclear bomb within 16 days, a U.S. State Department official said.

Iran will move to ``industrial scale'' uranium enrichment involving 54,000 centrifuges at its Natanz plant, the Associated Press quoted deputy nuclear chief Mohammad Saeedi as telling state-run television today.

``Using those 50,000 centrifuges they could produce enough highly enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon in 16 days,'' Stephen Rademaker, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for International Security and Nonproliferation, told reporters today in Moscow."

If this is true, God help us.
With Iran flatly ignoring the US, UK, and the UN, diplomatic solutions are not good. And with this immigration deal, we've got some major lack of attention to this issue.
I know our military is capable of dealing with this threat, but only if they are unleashed by the politicians.
I personally think/hope that Iran is not that close, but the time to deal with this problem is very, very soon.

Hey, this is really old. I thought I posted it, but it was a draft.
