Iran’s Uranium Enrichment Doesn’t Get Them Close to Making a Bomb

With Israel looking to sabotage Iran left and right, and the Iranian parliament looking to make tangible changes to the nuclear program in retaliation, Iranian officials struggle to make sure that they comply enough to keep parliament happy, while avoiding anything that’s going to hinder future peace talks.

Iran has long emphasized that everything they’ve done in this regard is reversible. Still, moves like enrichment of uranium to 60% are new milestones for Iran, and sound scary because they’re bigger numbers.

As far as a threat toward weaponization, not so much. It’s not at all clear what Iran would do with 60% enriched uranium, beyond likely dilute it back down to 20% or less. It’s still well short of the 90% needed for weapons-grade uranium, and with Iran continuing to be very transparent about what they’re doing, it’s just a proof of concept.
