    Remember when Obama got them to abandon their nuclear programs and then Trump fucked it up?

      are you saying america is about to invade Iran, then three months later declare “mission accomplished”, then have a military presence there for 20 years while they set up a new government which is just as corrupt as the previous one?

        I’m saying ‘Ira[x] bought a bunch of uranium from Niger’ sounds awfully familiar.

        I think that’s being optimistic, after Iraq no one is going to trust the US enough to not instantly screw over the opposition just as hard as the government they’re over throwing.

        The only reason Bush had the opportunity to declare mission accomplished is because the majority of the Iraqi military gave up before/during the invasion because we cut deals with the Baathist, and then immediately turned on them.

        When Bremer made being part of the Baathist party illegal, he basically outlawed anyone with a college degree in the country from joining the new government, and instantly turned the people who betrayed sadam in Iraqi army into a militant.

      What they bought was yellowcake, which is uranium ore with most of the non-uranium stuff removed, so… yeah, basically.

      This is distinct from enrichment, which is when you turn one isotope of uranium into another one which does fission better

        Is enrichment turning one isotope into another or when you separate out the different isotopes?

        I know Iran has centrifuge technology for this became Mossad sabotaged them a while back.
