Is ‘Iran getting a highway paved with gold to a nuclear arsenal?’- Benjamin Netanyahu, ex-Israeli PM
Iran–Ex-Israeli PM is trying to make waves, or does he genuinely mean for his country when he has said recently, that, “with a nuclear umbrella, Iran ‘will pursue aggression against us with impunity.” No one seems to be happy with the way things are panning out for Iran and Israel is speaking up.
This is one reason that Benjamin Netanyahu has sounded an alarm bell on Iran being given any leeway into the nuclear deal, as he feels Iran is seriously pursuing its agenda of nuclear aggression on Israel, Gulf state and ‘everybody else with impunity.’
There is a possibility that Iran might actually use nuclear weapons for the first time since the Second World War, a horrific incident which left huge repercussions on Japan once America had indulged into it.
As America comes closer to signing off the nuclear deal with Iran, Netanyahu took to the local television to say that this only means that “Iran is getting a highway paved with gold to a nuclear arsenal and they make no secret of their attempts to destroy us. Conquer the Middle East.”
He further added that, “I think this is a grave development. It’s a bad mistake. Iran is getting basically the ability to have 3,500 advanced centrifuges 10 times to 20 times more advanced than the few thousand that they have today. And they can begin developing them within two years.”
As of the last public count by the International Atomic Energy Agency, Iran had a stockpile of some 3,800 kg of enriched uranium. More worrying for nonproliferation experts, Iran now enriches uranium up to 60 percent purity — a level it had not reached before. That is a short, technical step away from weapons-grade levels of 90 percent.
