(LibertySociety.com) – In 2019, Iran reportedly violated the 2015 nuclear agreement with the US and began to enrich uranium. The country used advanced centrifuges to do it, and now there are reports the country has started back up.
On Wednesday, November 18, International Atomic Energy Agency Director-General Rafael Grossi revealed Iran is once again operating centrifuges in an underground site. The head of the watchdog agency told the press the country is “beyond the limits of the” nuclear deal, but there hasn’t been a “significant increase in the volumes.”

ABC News reported Iran had 4,641.6 pounds of low-enriched uranium on August 25; As of November 2, the country has 5,385.7 pounds.
Iran is the biggest threat to the US allies in the Middle East. Reports indicate President Donald Trump considered launching a military strike to stop the country from furthering its nuclear program. He ultimately decided not to do it, but what’s going to happen now? Could he reconsider?
