Perhaps somebody should explain to them that making a bomb from 20% LEU is a scientific impossibility...

20% and over is classed as 'weapons usable', because it is theoretically possible to assemble a critical mass.


I can't help you if you want to look ridiculous.

In addition, let's pick apart this little statement:

Quote:
It does not bring Iran "...a significant step closer to having the capability to produce weapons-grade highly enriched uranium" at all. 20% is not low enriched, not highly enriched, and a long way short of the minimum of 95% enriched needed for a weapon.
Ignoring that the minimum is 20%, making you wrong, you are assuming that the technological effort involved in getting to 20% from natural abundance is proportional to the technological development and effort needed to go from 20% to 95%. In simple terms you think that .735 to 20% = hard so 20% to 95% is very hard. A typical blunder. Even you should know that technological development isn't a process that is linear with enrichment %.

Wasted words on you anyway. You are a prime example of why freedom of speech is necessary. You are quick to call anything you don't support lies and propaganda that should be silenced for the good of the world. Not even acknowledging the idea that you could be wrong. What makes you a prime example is how sure you are that you are right when you are so easily proven wrong. The only thing you've done here is show that you do not understand free speech and provided a wonderful example of why it is valuable. It is a nice conclusion I think.

So I have to dumb it down for Mars again?

1) Is 19.75% greater or less than 20%?
2) What part of "...enrichments between 10 and 20 wt % are not weapons-usable." are you unable to understand?


If you are going to keep this idiotic Republican bullshit that 19.75% is weapons grade, prove that you are not lying by showing an example of a bomb made from the stuff.

I know you can't prove your case (as I have done using your sources...) wich is pretty much the point of the thread.

Plutonium, Mars! The key to the argument is Plutonium!

IRAN HAS PLUTONIUM THAT IS WEAPON USABLE!

Brazil has weapons-usable (in theory if you really stretch your imagination) Uranium. Eeeeeeks!

Only Brazilians are not Muslims, so Republicans like Mars are not scared of them.
