With that, it would take 12 months for Iran to produce enough material for one bomb

Iran says it can enrich uranium to 20 percent in days - www.aljazeera.com
"President Hassan Rouhani has declared that Iran's nuclear industry is advancing at a faster pace, as one of his senior cabinet officials warned the country could ramp its uranium enrichment to 20 percent on short notice, if the United States withdraws from the nuclear agreement.
"I want to clearly say to the Iranian nation that our nuclear industry is moving faster than before with more energy, accuracy and more exact calculation," the Iranian leader declared on Monday in a speech in Tehran."
Sych, in this article from April, Rouhani says he'll stick to the agreement but that Iran is being provoked - which is a claim they have often repeated since the seventies. The fact is that Iran has always been openly hostile, and an active sponsor of terrorism. We are currently engaged in direct fighting with their forces, and Iran has proven untrustworthy in a myriad of diplomatic situations.
I DO NOT want war with Iran, or any other nation. I don't support war, I support diplomacy. Obama's plan was a temporary stopgap that slow-walked the process, but left the infrastructure in place, with spool=up incrementally increasing over only 10 years. I believe Obama should have left the sanctions in place and kept the money frozen. Now, $1.7 billion in cash is flowing into their military fighting us on multiple fronts. Iranian lawmakers chant Death to America and Israel on their parliament floor. This gov't is not to be trusted, and represents the most dangerous nation to ME stability, apart from Israel, Saudi's, and the US itself. It's a 40+ year conflict that hasn't produced much in the way of peace and mutual agreements. It's a terrible situation that I HOPE can be solved with diplomacy and sanctions.
But I'll tell you this, if Trump skips diplomacy and Bolton takes us directly to war with Tehran, I'll be the first to condemn it. And I'll be first to call Trump a liar for implying he wants a better deal.
