The damage is already done, but at least this illegal exportation of weapon materials has halted.

TEST

Carbon fiber is used in crucial components of missiles and centrifuge rotors for producing enriched uranium. Iran ramped up their uranium production in defiance of sanctions enforced by the US. It’s clear that Iran has the building blocks for creating dangerous weapons — let’s hope they don’t put them to use.
