Iran no longer has the material to build a bomb? Amazing


From The New York Times:

"A Russian ship left Iran on Monday carrying almost all of Iran’s stockpile of low-enriched uranium, fulfilling a major step in the nuclear deal struck last summer and, for the first time in nearly a decade, apparently leaving Iran with too little fuel to manufacture a nuclear weapon."

  • Number of Americans killed in the operation to strip Iran of the enriched uranium needed to build a bomb: Zero.

  • Number of Iranians killed in the operation to strip Iran of its nuclear material: Zero.

  • Number of apologies from American conservatives and "experts" in the Israeli government, including Bibi Netanyahu,  who predicted that Iran would never willingly surrender its nuclear material and that the negotiations were hopeless: Zero.
