    Iran To Reveal New Nuke Achievements.....

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran will soon unveil "big new" nuclear achievements, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Saturday while reiterating Tehran's readiness to revive talks with the West over the country's controversial nuclear program.

    Ahmadinejad did not elaborate on the upcoming announcement but insisted Iran would never give up its uranium enrichment, a process that makes material for reactors as well as weapons.

    Iran has said it is forced to manufacture nuclear fuel rods, which provide fuel for reactors, on its own since international sanctions ban it from buying them on foreign markets. In January, Iran said it had produced its first such fuel rod.
    Apart from progress on the rods, the upcoming announcement could pertain to Iran's underground enrichment facility at Fordo or upgraded centrifuges, which are expected to be installed at the facility in the central town of Natanz. Iran has also said it would inaugurate the Russian-built nuclear power plant in the southern port of Bushehr in 2012.

    Also at the Tehran rally, Iran displayed a real-size model of the U.S. drone RQ-170 Sentinel, captured by Iran in December near the border with Afghanistan. Iran has touted the drone's capture as one of its successes against the West.....snip~

    Still no word of protests. Plus now we know that the Israelis state they already have 4 bombs. As far as moving their stuff underground. To late, we already know they have. Looks like their stalling tactics worked even though they have lost 80% of their revenues and now are having trouble getting food.

    When did the Russians build them this power plant? Seems weird they would give them a nuclear power plant but not help them with the rods needed to run it.

    Actually it was the Germans who orignally built it then the Russians.....

    In 1975, German Kraftwerk Union AG, a joint venture of Siemens AG and AEG Telefunken, signed a contract worth US$4–6 billion to build the pressurized water reactor nuclear power plant. The work was begun in the same year. The two 1,196 MWe reactors, subcontracted to ThyssenKrupp AG, were based on the Convoy design and identical with the second reactor unit of the German Biblis Nuclear Power Plant.[4][10] The first reactor was to be finished by 1980 and the second one by 1981.[1]

    In 1990, Iran began to look outwards towards partners for its nuclear program; however, due to a radically different political climate and punitive U.S. economic sanctions, few candidates existed.
    A Russian–Iranian intergovernmental outline for construction and operation of two reactor units at Bushehr was signed on 25 August 1992.[10] Two years later, Russian specialists toured the site for the first time to assess the damage done to the partially complete plant by the passage of time and by air raids during the Iran–Iraq War. The final contract between Iran and Russia's Ministry for Atomic Energy (Minatom) was signed on 8 January 1995.[1] Russia's main contractor for the project, Atomstroyexport, would install a V-320 915 MWe VVER-1000 pressurized water reactor into the existing Bushehr I building, with commissioning originally expected in 2001.....snip~

    Diplomacy with Iran has been going on 3 years now & still no agreement...

    Obama Administration’s ‘Window’ With Iran Has Been Closing for More Than Three Years
    October 30, 2012 – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that the “window” of opportunity to resolve the Iranian nuclear standoff diplomatically “cannot remain open indefinitely.” She was reiterating a warning that the Obama administration has repeated dozens of times over the past three years.
    “Our message to Iran is clear,” Clinton said alongside European Union foreign policy chief Cathy Ashton in Sarajevo. “The window remains open to resolve the international community’s concerns about your nuclear program diplomatically and to relieve your isolation, but that window cannot remain open indefinitely.” Two talking points that have characterized the administration’s statements regarding Iran’s nuclear activities refer to the closing “window,” and the assertion that time and U.S. patience are “not unlimited.” Since President Obama more than three years ago advised Tehran that “our patience is not unlimited” and Clinton declared that “the opportunity will not remain open indefinitely” and warned “we are not going to keep the window open forever,” they and other administration officials have repeated the two phrases multiple times.

    Meanwhile Iran has increased its stockpile of low-enriched uranium (LEU) more than eight-fold, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Two months before Obama took office in January 2009, the IAEA said it verified a LEU supply of 839 kilograms. By September 2009, that had grown by 591 kilograms, for a total of 1,430 kilograms. In its most recent report, early last month, the IAEA said Iran’s LEU holdings have now reached 6,876 kilograms. The Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security says that 6,876 kilograms of LEU, “if further enriched to weapon grade, is enough to make over six nuclear weapons.” “We are now running out of time with respect to that [diplomatic] approach,” Obama said in Singapore on November 15, 2009, and a State Department spokesman added two weeks later, “The president has said that our patience is not unlimited.”

    Fast forward more than two years, and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, asked at a February 28 briefing when the window with Iran would close, said he would not give “a specific date.” “[W]e believe there is time and space to pursue a diplomatic path, a path that intensifies the sanctions, intensifies the isolation, and attempts, through unified international action, to get the Iranian regime to change its behavior,” he said. At a March 6 press conference, Obama said, “At this stage, it is my belief that we have a window of opportunity where this can still be resolved diplomatically. That’s not just my view. That’s the view of our top intelligence officials; It’s the view of top Israeli intelligence officials.”

    A week later, Obama said alongside British Prime Minister David Cameron that “the window for solving this issue diplomatically is shrinking.” The message was repeated on March 26 by deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes, briefing reporters in South Korea: “We made clear that there is time and space for diplomacy, but people also have to understand that that time is not unlimited.”

    ‘The clock is ticking’

    I don't want a war with Iran. They claim they want nuclear energy which should be their right to have. Nuclear weapons, I don't want them to have because of their threats. When have they refused to let inspectors in? Hillary and the UN I don't trust. We should send in reliable people from the US to make sure beforehand. Lets not start a war if we don't have to.
