Iran's nuclear program is growing at an alarming rate and the Obama Administration must stand up to it with tough sanctions, says Fred Fleitz, chief analyst at the global forecasting and intelligence website LIGNET.

"Iran now has about 9,000 kilograms of reactor-grade uranium ... that if it went to weapons grade -- which would take a few weeks to a few months -- could produce seven to eight nuclear weapons," Fleitz told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



"Iran is on the brink of a number of significant technological breakthroughs where they will be able to make significantly more enriched uranium and be able to make even more weapons."

Fleitz said the Obama administration needs to address the growing menace with decisive action, something that has not happened thus far.

"The Obama administration came into office claiming they would have a new cooperative approach, unlike the warlike approach of President Bush, and the Iranians would be willing to deal," Fleitz said.

"They weren't willing to deal. The Iranians don't see any difference between Republicans and Democrats. They hate all of us, the Iranian leadership."

He said Obama, instead of pursuing necessary tough sanctions, has been trying to negotiate, which isn't working.

"We haven't been serious,'' he said. "The Iranian nuclear program is ... advancing by leaps and bounds."

He pointed to the fact that Iran placed two satellites in orbit, which experts believe was actually a test for a long-range missile.

"This missile could probably hit all of western Europe, maybe further,'' he noted.
