Iran and the Development of Nuclear Weapons
Iran has been aggressively working to develop their nuclear program over the past several years. Iran claims their nuclear program is for civilian energy purposes only, but the facts prove otherwise. It is known that Iran wants nuclear weapons, and the details surrounding their nuclear program indicate that Iran is developing nuclear weapons. Below are a list of items the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) recently found when investigating Iran and its nuclear program. These findings make it almost inconceivable that Iran has any other purpose then to develop nuclear weapons with its nuclear program.

Iran is suspected of conducting high explosives testing with detonators capable of triggering a nuclear warhead. They are also working on a muti-point detonation system that could be used in an implosion-type nuclear device. Iran is also accused of developing plans for underground explosives testing. Iran is in possession of a document detailing the procedure to mold highly enriched uranium metal into a hemispherical shape needed to create an element in implosion-type nuclear warheads. The country has been redesigning the payload area of the Shahab-3 missile to accommodate a re-entry vehicle capable of delivering a nuclear warhead. Iran has not ceased in its enrichment of uranium, and currently has over 3,000 centrifuges to help in the process. The IAEA also noted that many of the parts used to make the centrifuges were manufactured in the Iranian Defense Industries Organization, which blurs the lines between civilian and military interests.

Discover in more detail the evident that points to Iran's development of nuclear weapons in the article, IAEA Indicts Iran HERE. Iran's nuclear weapons ambitions are a valid threat to the entire world, and they need to be stopped. If Iran gets a nuclear weapon, every indication is that they will use it against their enemies in the Middle East and around the world.
