Nuclear Weapon in Iran
How close is Iran from creating new nuclear weapons?
Over the last two year Iran has been incresing their nuclear capability. Because of all the uranium and centrifuges they have on land, in a couple of months they can create a lot of weapons and nuclear bombs. But if there were a way to stop them, then their time in making these weapons will take longer. It will take them more than a year to finish what they have in mind. On December 7th, Rebecca Shimoni Stoil and Ricky Ben-David wrote the article "Obama: Iran can have peaceful nuclear program, ‘modest enrichment’" and quoted Obama's speech. Obama stated that "In an ideal world Iran would destroy every element and facility, you name it.” And went on, “We have to be more realistic.”With this in mind, Obama wants to prevent Iran from aquiring any new niclear weapons. A few weeks ago Iran and the P5+1, the United States, Britain, France, Russia, and China plus Germany, signed a deal that a "comprehensive treaty to be negotiated in the next six months. More than that, it expires in six months." And with this agreement many questions and concerns stirs up. U.S. Representative Ed Royce, the California Republican who chairs the House Foreign Affairs Committee, talks about the agreement between Iran and world powers to limit its nuclear program in exchange for as much as $7 billion in relief from sanctions. Royce speaks with Deirdre Bolton and Peter Cook on Bloomberg Television's "In the Loop."
