It’s been long warned that Iran and its nutjob president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been working hard to obtain uranium, used to create a nuclear bomb. Few doubt that he was serious about such a dangerous goal. What does he want to do with a nuclear bomb? From his own publicly stated agenda:

1) Destroy Israel
2) Destroy the United States

The most recent report from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) indicates that Iran has enough uranium to build two nuclear bombs. Joel Rosenberg broke the story on his blog, which you can read here.
Here is a highlight from Rosenberg’s blog:

On page 2 of the report, the IAEA indicates that 669 kgs of low-grade uranium have been produced by Iran since November 18th, 2008. A footnote on that page further indicates that 839 kgs of similar LEU (low enriched uranium) had been produced by Iran prior to November 2008. That means Iran now has at least 1,508 kgs of low-grade uranium.

Gold noted that to produce 20 kgs of HEU (highly-enriched uranium, military-grade uranium) to build a nuclear bomb, one needs roughly 700 kgs of LEU that can then be reinserted into high-tech centrifuges and re-processed to roughly 95% purity. Thus, Iran now appears to have the essential materials to move steadily towards building two atomic bombs as soon as it makes the political decision to do so. It is not known whether Tehran has already made such a decision. Moreover, it is not publicly known whether Tehran possesses more enriched uranium than the IAEA is aware of and/or reporting.

Or read the report directly right here.

I’m not sure how much clearer it could be: Israel especially, and the United States secondarily, are in imminent danger. Now is the time to get on your knees and pray. Pray for the safety of both nations. Pray for the wisdom of the leadership of both nations to respond appropriately.

While an attempted attack on Israel will come first, the implications for American security are profound. I will address those in a separate post, coming soon.

Pray. If this scares the crap out of you, it should. That is, unless you know the source of eternal hope. If you don’t, it can be found. (Hint: it has something to do with Jesus Christ.)
