I heard they had enriched uranium to 4.8 grade which is short of the 5.0 for power and much shorter than the 90 necessary for nuclear weapons. I'm not sure what we should do about them. Maybe let them keep barking and carrying on, not giving them any reason to keep threatening so that they don't reject the inspectors. Apparently his ratings keep going up each time he comes out with a new threat for Israel and the West. Could he possibly just be looking for a reason to keep U.N. inspectors away while increasing his reputation with his people as the real badass that thumbs his nose at us? It's like he's a looney on the street corner having quite a heated argument with himself!
