Iran’s nuclear breakout time is under 2 weeks, U.S. Senate hears
(Worthy News) – Iran’s uranium development program is so advanced that the Islamic Republic can now produce sufficient fissile material for a nuclear weapon in under two weeks, according to a U.S. military chief.
Army General Michael Kurilla, who leads U.S. Central Command, was echoing similar assessments from his colleagues such as Colin Kahl, the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy. Kahl estimated that it would take Iran 12 days to produce fissile material adequate for an atom bomb.
On Thursday, Kurilla apprised the Senate Armed Services Committee of the latest developments in the Middle East, emphasizing multiple security risks to the U.S. and its allies. Iranian proxy groups continue to attack U.S. troops, including a rocket strike by Iranian-backed terrorists on U.S. troops in Syria earlier this week, he said. [ Source: i24 (Read More…) ]
