Iran admits to 2nd Uranium Enrichment Plant
The US is said to have had intelligence on this site since the Bush Administration and they were going to announce these findings to the world at G-20, but Iran got wind of this, and tried to beat Obama to the punch by coming clean.
President Obama released a joint statement with Gordon Brown and Nicolas Sarkozy, they have denounced this plant, and demanded that Iran allow UN inspectors in immediately.
Because enrichment can make both nuclear fuel and weapons-grade uranium, the international community fears Tehran will use the technology to generate the fissile material used on the tip of nuclear warheads.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has released several conflicting statements since the announcement.
President Obama has stated that the Enrichment Plant is much larger then would be needed for peaceful Nuclear technology.
Do you think Iran poses a real threat?
Should the U.S. act to stop this behavior?
