Biden’s shocking statements regarding terrorists’ nuclear program have millions worried

Joe Biden’s foreign policies are known to be terrible. But this newest development might be one of the worst yet.

And Biden’s shocking statements regarding terrorists’ nuclear program have millions worried.

In a shocking and controversial move, President Joe Biden is reportedly urging America’s European allies to ease off pressuring Iran regarding its illegal nuclear activities, even as the Islamic Republic accelerates its stockpile of near-weapons grade nuclear fuel.

The Biden administration is specifically attempting to dissuade Britain and France from pushing for a censure of Iran at the upcoming International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) member-state board meeting next month, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal, which cited various diplomats.

Additionally, the Biden administration has been lobbying several other countries to abstain from voting in favor of censuring Iran, a stance the administration itself plans to adopt.

European diplomats have voiced their concerns, warning that the failure to take decisive action would undermine the IAEA’s authority, which is responsible for policing the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons.

These diplomats argue that it also diminishes the credibility of Western pressure on Iran and expresses frustration over what they perceive as U.S. efforts to weaken their strategy.

Despite these diplomatic pressures, the Biden administration maintains that it is increasing pressure on Iran through sanctions and international isolation.

However, critics point out that sanctions enforcement has been relaxed, allowing Iran to generate tens of billions of dollars in oil revenue.

“Iran’s level of cooperation with the agency remains unacceptable,” stated Laura Holgate, the U.S. ambassador to the IAEA. “The board must be prepared to take further action should Iran’s cooperation not improve dramatically.”

Recent reports from the IAEA, the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog, indicate that Iran has significantly increased its stockpile of near weapons-grade enriched uranium.

According to the Associated Press, Iran’s stockpile of 60% enriched uranium has risen from 121.5 kilograms to 142.1 kilograms in a few months.

The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies (FDD) highlights that 99% of the effort required to produce weapons-grade uranium occurs during the enrichment phase to 60%. The final phase, which involves boosting it to 90% or higher, constitutes just “the last 1% of the effort needed to produce the fuel for a nuclear weapon.” This crucial period, known as “breakout time,” takes only seven days.

Iran began enriching uranium to 20% and 60% and stockpiling both shortly after the November 2020 elections. Under President Biden, who has relaxed sanctions enforcement against the nation, Iran has amassed unprecedented levels of enriched uranium, violating international law.

The Biden administration’s strategy regarding Iran has faced substantial criticism. While the administration claims to be increasing pressure through sanctions and diplomatic isolation, the reality is that Iran continues to expand its nuclear capabilities unchecked. Andrea Stricker, Deputy Director and Research Fellow of FDD’s Nonproliferation & Biodefense program, commented on the situation:

“IAEA’s latest reporting shows Iran is steadily increasing its proximity to nuclear weapons. The Biden admin. naively believes Tehran is undertaking restraint via indirect talks and U.S. sanctions relief,” Stricker said. “Yet the regime is taking a ‘boiling the frog’ approach to nuclear breakout. By the time Washington realizes it, the frog will be cooked, and the regime will have a nuclear deterrent.”

Stricker further informed The Daily Wire that as of February, Iran possessed enough enriched uranium to produce 13 nuclear weapons once the uranium is enriched to 90%. The regime could produce nearly four weapons immediately using just its stock of 60% enriched uranium.

The Biden administration’s apparent reluctance to confront Iran more forcefully raises significant concerns about the future of global security and the effectiveness of international nonproliferation efforts. Critics argue that this approach sends the wrong message to Tehran, effectively enabling their nuclear ambitions while undermining the credibility of the IAEA and international agreements.

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), a vocal critic of the administration’s Iran policy, remarked, “This administration’s failure to hold Iran accountable for its nuclear ambitions is not only dangerous but also signals a disturbing weakness in U.S. foreign policy. By backing down, we are compromising our national security and the security of our allies.”

As the world watches Iran inch closer to achieving a nuclear weapon, the Biden administration’s stance continues to spark heated debate.

While the administration maintains that it is exerting pressure on Tehran, the lack of robust action and the relaxation of sanctions enforcement tell a different story.
