Target sanctions at Iran’s leaders

Several recent developments suggest that Iran’s nuclear programme is not for peaceful purposes, as the Tehran regime claims, but is intended to develop a bomb.

First was the exposure of the secret enrichment site at Fordo, near the holy city of Qom. The site, which was recently exposed by the United States, should have been declared three years ago when Iran began construction there. However, the Iranian government decided to keep it secret until September this year. The fact that the site is only suitable for 3,000 centrifuges, enough for making a bomb but in no way sufficient for producing nuclear fuel for a civilian reactor added to the validity of the argument that Iran is building a nuclear weapon.

This is in addition to the recent discovery of a secret dossier by the International Atomic Energy Agency that contained evidence suggesting that Iran experimented with an advanced nuclear warhead design.
