Iran removed the core of its plutonium reactor and filled it with concrete Monday, paving the way for economic and financial sanctions to be lifted soon.
The work that effectively rendered the reactor at Arak harmless was the last major hurdle for Iran to fulfill its commitments under a landmark deal reached just shy of six months ago in Vienna. The International Atomic Energy Agency must verify that everything was done satisfactorily before U.S. and international sanctions can be lifted. But that is expected to take days, not weeks.
All the while pouring concrete at their new site that we helped finance and rendered technological advice.
Because Iran told us so?
Right. No one outside has seen in. Just a undocumented claim. Humm, once seen, can never be unseen?
Iran just filled up a useless outdated reactor to gain more sympathy or something something.
And the Plutonium went where?
We should have slagged the place,
then they’d know we were serious.
Real answer: We have produced enough plutonium to build one or more nuclear weapons and we don’t need the reactor anymore.
