Iran defying Western powers and converting uranium to near weapon-grade

Iran has defied Western powers by converting some of its uranium enriched to near weapons-grade into a form less easily recovered, diluted and shipped out of the country, a new report by the UN nuclear watchdog on Wednesday showed, according to Reuters. The confidential report, seen by Reuters and summarized in a short statement by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said that between March 6 and March 9, the agency verified that Iran had converted 2.1 kg (4.6 lb) of its up to 60% uranium into 1.7 kg (3.8 lb) in a different form enriched to the same level suitable for making small "targets" for irradiation.

On March 11 and 13 the IAEA verified Iran had produced 32 targets containing a total of 186.7 grams (6.6 ounces) of uranium enriched up to 60%, the report said, adding that Iran later declared they had all been irradiated. The agency then verified on March 15 that Iran had produced another batch of 56 targets containing a total of 329 grams (11.6 ounces) of uranium enriched to the same level, the report said.

I think Iran is on the fast track for a nuke...I've felt for quite a while now that the US will not have any more midterm or Presidential elections. I also believe when Russia starts moving its troops, etc. back to the "mother land" something is going to happen that causes God to put the hooks in the jaw and Russia and others will instead turn around and come after Israel. The birth pangs are happening more fast and furious all the time.

They're a sovereign nation. It is their right. If I were the head of a sovereign nation that has been threatened by Iran, I'd be thinking about destroying their nuke assets before they can build a bomb to use against me.
Been reading about "several Iranian cargo planes" landing in Damascus, wondering If Israel might be getting ready to take several pre-emptive measures, including what your suggesting!

What do these targets signify and their use?
It's confusing language, I think they mean the actual uranium is targeted by the process using radiation to enrich it. But it has to be a certain grade. And they call that the target as far as I can tell. I'd call it a chunk or a lump or something other than a target.

This is not about Iran targeting Israel and America with the weapons from these enriched uranium chunks. Iran will definitely do that ASAP but meanwhile this wording means the process of enrichment.

Hope I didn't make it worse Carl, the language by the reporter could have been so much better.

I finally searched on internet and this is what I found. Apparently target is a term used for modifying uranium to be used for medicine. Apparently once the uranium has been converted to targets it is no longer useful for weapons. Is used for finding cancers etc.

Ok a possibility. Especially when it comes to fooling the ever gullible Biden and Obama administrations negotiating teams. However curing cancer doesn't sound like the mullah's main goal in life.
