Iran starts 20% uranium enrichment, seizes South Korean ship

By Geller Report Staff

Iran must be stopped. The world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism must never be allowed to manufacture nuclear weapons.

 Iran began enriching uranium Monday to levels unseen since its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers and also seized a South Korean-flagged tanker near the crucial Strait of Hormuz, a double-barreled challenge to the West that further raised Mideast tensions.

Both decisions appeared aimed at increasing Tehran’s leverage in the waning days in office for President Donald Trump, whose unilateral withdrawal from the atomic accord in 2018 began a series of escalating incidents.

Increasing enrichment at its underground Fordo facility puts Tehran a technical step away from weapons-grade levels of 90%, while also pressuring President-elect Joe Biden to quickly negotiate. Iran’s seizure of the MT Hankuk Chemi comes as a South Korean diplomat was due to travel to the Islamic Republic to discuss the release of billions of dollars in Iranian assets now frozen in Seoul.

Report: Dems 'Bracing for Defeat' in Georgia

It’s runoff Election Day in Georgia when the balance of power in the U.S. Senate will finally be decided, determining how easily President-elect Biden will be able to ram through his progressive agenda. But Politico is not reporting optimistically about Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock.

In a piece titled, “Biden transition hoping for victory but bracing for defeat in Georgia,” Politico explains that Biden’s advisers are “privately skeptical” about the Democrats’ chances against Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. 

The transition team has been busy preparing different scenarios for its legislative agenda depending on Tuesday’s results, the outlet said.

One member of the Biden transition team told Politico that pulling off two victories in a state where a Democrat hasn’t been elected to the Senate in more than two decades would be “nothing short of a miracle.”
