Iran Nuclear Power
The Guardian reported on Sunday U.S. fears Iran now has the capability to build a nuclear bomb.
The paper reports that U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staffs said Iran now has enough fissile material for one nuclear bomb, and said the possibility would be "very very bad."
The Guardian reports it was the first public assesment by the U.S. government on the subject, and comes after a report done by the International Atomic Energy Agency that said Iran has made significant strides on enriching uranium.
The Guardian reports Iran says it will not build a bomb, but is instead hoping to create nuclear power plants.
The Los Angeles Times also reported on the story .
The Times said that while military officers believe Iran can make a bomb, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates does not.
Gates said that diplomatic solutions to Iran having nuclear power remain available.
