The new IAEA report is alarming because it shows that Iran is rapidly increasing its capacity for the production of nuclear fuel – the most difficult step in making a nuclear bomb. This is taking place at the Fordow nuclear facility, which is built into a mountainside and heavily fortified. Iran has also refused to allow IAEA inspectors access to a facility where it allegedly has conducted nuclear warhead experiments. The report indicates that Western efforts to use sanctions and diplomacy to convince Tehran to halt its nuclear program have been an utter failure and that Iranian leaders instead appear to be preparing a nuclear weapons program that could survive Israeli and American airstrikes.
