#1 Sure.

Spend enormous sums to enrich 0.5% U-235 to 20% U-235, the spend more to convert it to 5% U-235 for reactor fuel.

Makes sense in bizzaro world.

#2 thank you Lord Garth.
my point too.

nobody is going to enrich uranium to 20% or more, then convert it back to 5%. that's ridiculous. The Iranians have plenty of the 5% stuff. this story line makes no sense.

#3 IIRC, didn't Iran Officios use a "17%" or "19%", under-20 figure for their HEU enrichment goal, ITO good enough to satisfy the US + UN IAEA but also good enough to power their Navy's desired future "peaceful", cannot-confirm-or-deny-they will-be-armed-or-wid-what NUCLEAR SUBMARINES + MILITARY, COMMERCIAL SURFACE SHIPS???

Iran professes to want a Nuke-powered, "Blue Water" capable Navy to plow the Med, Atlantic, + East Asia-IOR, etc. whose ships of war are also N-O-T Nuke-armed???

#4 Reminds me of GEN. CUSTER to Indian-Cavalry Scout Dustin Hoffman in "LITTLE BIG MAN" > "YOU'RE STILL TRYING TO OUTSMART ME, AREN'T YOU, MULESKINNER - YOU DON'T WANT ME TO GO DOWN THERE BECAUSE YOU REALLY D-O-O-O-N'T WANT ME TO GO DOWN THERE ... ... WELL, ARE YOU SATISFIED NOW, MAJOR"!

#6 Maybe if we told OBambi and Slow Joe and San Fran Nan that Iran was FULL, just freaking FULL, of assault rifles maybe they would do something...

Naw, they filled Mexico with assault rifles (which I think was really an attempt to deplete the stocks in the US, you know stage four of the product cycle, taking obsolete stuff and selling it to the local rubes to keep a product line profitable) and they haven't done a think.
