TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Saturday that Iran now possesses 6,000 centrifuges, a significant increase in the number of uranium-enriching machines in its nuclear program, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.
The new figure is double the 3,000 centrifuges Iran had previously said it was operating in its uranium enrichment plant in Natanz.“Islamic Iran today possesses 6,000 centrifuges,” Ahmadinejad told university professors in the northeastern city of Mashhad. The assertion that Iran has reached that goal is certain to further rankle the United States and other world powers. Washington and its allies have been demanding a halt to Iran’s enrichment out of fear it is intent on using the technology to develop weapons. Iran vehemently denies those allegations and says it is interested in enrichment only for its nuclear power program. Full Story Here:
Report: Iran now has 6,000 centrifuges for uranium
Iran has made their declaration, they have made their intent crystal clear, they are planning on wiping Israel OFF the map, that is their goal and that is their intent and unless Iran is stopped, they will make good on that threat.
The White House said that Iran’s pronouncement does not facilitate a resolution to the nuclear standoff.
He took us to Iraq on the idea that Saddam possessed weapons of mass destruction, and as of late there was the yellow cake that was moved from Iraq.Many of the Bush Bot crowd claimed vindication because of that yellow cake, but the yellow cake itself is NOT a WMD, it is only a seed material for higher-grade nuclear enrichment. I don’t believe Iraq had all the tools in place to conduct that enrichment. Iran does. I would think that the fact that Iran does have the tools at hand to conduct uranium enrichment, that could, and likely should be considered a viable threat to the development of a true WMD, a thermonuclear device that Iran may very well have a delivery system already in place that is capable of hitting Israel.
Iran already is under three sets of U.N. sanctions for its refusal to suspend enrichment.
If ever there was a nation that needed it’s potential nuclear capabilities decimated, Iran is the place, but Ahmadinejad hasn’t threatened Daddy yet, so Junior can’t do anything.Hell, let’s face facts, Junior can’t even pronounce nuclear. Trackback URL:
