Drudge: Iran to Have Nukes in 16 Days

The drudgereport yesterday had a big headline proclaiming that Iran was going to have a nuclear bomb in 16 days. Of course that was not the real story. If Iran had 54.000 centrifuges, then it could have the bomb in 16 days. It’s like a math problem. So if they had 108.000 centrifuges, they could do it in 8 days, or with 216.000 in 4 days, or even in just 1 day with 1.064.000 centrifuges.

Of course Iran is a threat right now, but lets not panic over this. In the end, what Iran is looking for is security guarantees from the U.S. and these threats are part of the program.

April 12 (Bloomberg) — 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 has informed the Vienna-based International Atomic
Energy Agency that it plans to construct 3,000 centrifuges at
Natanz next year, Rademaker said.

“We calculate that a 3,000-machine cascade could produce
enough uranium to build a nuclear weapon within 271 days,” he
said.
