Iran enriching uranium at new lab

Well Duh!

I don't think the question is if they are gearing towards a bomb anymore, it looks almost obvious.
I think the new question is, are we ready for a true Nuclear Islam?
Yes Pakistan has nukes, but compared to Iran, most of Pakistan is not a Nuclear threat!
But Iran, just a bit; you know.

USA Today
Iran has begun uranium enrichment at a new underground site built to withstand possible airstrikes, a leading hard-line newspaper reported Sunday in another show of defiance against Western pressure to rein in Tehran's nuclear program.

The operations at the bunker-like facility south of Tehran, reported by the Kayhan daily newspaper, are small in comparison to Iran's main enrichment site. But the centrifuges at the underground labs are considered more efficient and are shielded from aerial surveillance and protected against airstrikes by up to 300 feet (90 meters) of mountain rock.

Uranium enrichment is at the core of the international standoff over Iran's nuclear program. The U.S. and its allies fear Iran could use its enrichment facilities to develop high-grade nuclear material for warheads.
