A Nuclear Iran Are there nuclear weapons hidden all over Iran that could result in mass destruction as the United States government and they United Nations continue to claim? One of the big red flags that was uncovered in 2003 was the high amount of uranium being transported to Iran. It is believed this is the material they are using to create their artillery of nuclear weapons. It is believed that Iran has very advanced forms of technology that they have been able to access and implement for nuclear weapons. Finding out if such materials exist though is much harder than one might think. The information that is provided by Iran is only going to be what they want to provide. Even a full search of the area at the hands of forceful war wouldn’t mean these items could be located. If they exist then they will also be very well hidden. When asked about the large amount of uranium the stand from Iran is that they are using it to develop a plant where the uranium can be transferred into a resource for energy. While this is possible many people have varied opinions on the issue. Iran can certainly afford to pay for the cost of uranium due to the billons they earn annually with the sale of oil to countries including China. Yet is it cost effective to convert something like that into energy? Also, why was Iran being so secretive about the amount of uranium they were buying? Many people believe that the threat of a nuclear Iran is just too large to ignore. They feel a war is on the horizon. Many feel that the only reason why it hasn’t already taken place is that the United States is still to heavily involved in issues taking place in Iraq. What the future of this will be is unknown as Iran isn’t showing signs of wanting to work well with either the United States or the United Nations when it comes to the topic of nuclear weapons. The threat of a nuclear war is one that no one really wants to think about. Yet being prepared for such events is what will help our world to survive if it should take place. Iran continues to be one of the countries that is watched very closely due to the belief that they are hiding large amounts of nuclear weapons. Given their shaky relationship with so many countries around the world including the United States though this isn’t a place you want to give the benefit of the doubt.
