There is troubling news at -- that country's media suggesting it's closer than ever to going nuclear.
Iran claiming it is produce more than 3000 advanced centrifuges which are used to -- uranium.
KT McFarland Fox News national security analyst and former deputy assistant secretary of defense in the Reagan administration good morning of my identity.
The number 3000 is that important.
Is that ahead.
It's significant in and of itself that is significant and what's happened in the last two or three weeks with Iran.
Because there are a lot of early indications now I think that they decided they've made the decision they're going for it.
And nothing's going to stop them -- -- indications okay -- these new.
Centrifuges and centrifuge is basically like -- spin cycle in the washing machine he's been a little bad and get the close a little dry well that's the uranium -- use.
-- faster now as far as vampire the quality you got it is okay now got enriched uranium last week at foxnews.com.
It was reported -- leading nuclear scientists from Iran has traveled to North Korea.
To watch its latest nuclear test.
-- is there any doubt that these two countries are working together in your mind.
Now and edit -- first time that's happened the north Koreans have tested missiles for example.
They called on the Taepodong missile they test it then they sell to Iran all of a sudden Iranians get a -- paint the side of -- they called special hop missile.
They've got the same missile I think those two systems are working in conjunction now why -- -- -- Because -- looks at North Korea and say -- of a country help stop their nuclear program.
They tested missiles they've tested nuclear devices they're talking about new -- in New York.
Nobody stopped them were much bigger more powerful country nobody's gonna.
So they're taking some -- -- -- -- reaction right now and so far -- reaction has been very little if Iran were to announce that it was nuclear.
Tomorrow for a week from.
What the change.
But what now I think the whole world changes and that's why they're they're going to be very reluctant to stop their nuclear program at this point first of all what happens is Iran becomes the dominant part country.
And that part of the world in the Persian gulf and the part of the world that 40% of the world's exported oil comes from secondly.
They they have nuclear weapons to threaten Israel -- they talk about doing it all the time.
They don't wanna go nuke Tel Aviv but the fact that they talk about it if jurors -- you cannot take that I Italy and lightly.
You think that somebody who talks about incinerating your people.
And has the ability to do so has to be taken seriously and then the third thing that one I think affects us is there's a nuclear arms race in that part of the world.
The most dangerous unstable part of the world that has the world's -- OK now you mention Israel and there's a lot of talk parlor talk or perhaps it's real about striking Iran first yes short of bombing Iran.
What are the three things the United States could do.
OK I never wanted to be in this position where you either let Iran get the bomb -- -- -- I think that there is still not much time but there's still a little bit of time.
And I would do three things one -- -- oil.
You know bill that Keystone Pipeline to -- US oil resources in North America.
-- to the point where we we are independent and we don't need to rely on the Middle East are we going to be cold and every Middle East sounds logical sounds logical okay cyber weapons we have seen.
That the cyber attacks that stuff -- worm flame -- Q.
The ones that that we think would not have -- -- that we think the United States probably in Israel have done against Iran they were -- -- second set and it it broke Ambac does not -- biggest setbacks they could buy a little bit of time.
And I think the third thing which we have failed to do -- what Reagan did to such great effect directly to the Iranian people.
Tell them what we want you to be a great power we don't even mind if you have nuclear weapons -- just mind this -- this leadership these people who talked about threatening the world.
Add new -- throughout the region -- Yeah he would speak directly -- Toronto people budget dinner and a top leader just -- reject a request from.
Yeah from Joseph Biden to talk directly that's why -- talk directly to them because this supreme leader of Iran you're so Smart to point this out.
He's -- really makes -- decisions.
Just -- vice president Biden's request for direct negotiations so what the United States should do our leaders go over -- had.
Of the Iranian government directly to the Iranian people let them have their Arab Spring one more time I'll appreciate your input thank you -- he would talk to you later in the week all right thank KT McFarland here.
