Analysis: Iran will have bomb on months: studies
Iran may be two months away from being able to create a nuclear bomb and there is little the international community can do to stop it, two new studies say.
Using data released last month by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Iran’s enriched uranium stockpiles and the operations of its nuclear program, U.S. weapons expert Gregory Jones calculates it could produce enough highly enriched uranium for a nuclear bomb in just eight weeks.
“It is unclear what actions the U.S. or Israel could take (short of militarily occupying Iran) that could now prevent Iran from producing nuclear weapons,” Mr. Jones wrote in a study published last week by the Nonproliferation Policy Education Centre. (Photo: Behrouz Mehri/AFP/Getty Images)
