Iran to be 'fully nuclear soon'
Good news from CNN:
TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday his country expects its uranium enrichment program to be ready by February to meet Iran's nuclear fuel needs, the national news service IRNA reported.
"We will commission some 3,000 centrifuges by this year end. We are determined to master fuel cycle, and commission some 60,000 centrifuges to meet our demands," the president said at a news conference closed to foreign reporters.
"Today the Iranian nation possesses the full nuclear fuel cycle and time is completely running in our favor in terms of diplomacy."
Ahmadinejad said Iran hopes to celebrate its nuclear success during the "Ten-Day Dawn" festivities at the beginning of February, which mark the country's victory in the Islamic Revolution, the Islamic Republic News Agency reported.
"This year's Ten-Day Dawn period will mark the Iranian nation's success in mastering fuel cycle as well as its achievements in other fields," the president said.
And a bit later in the article, what seems like a thinly veiled threat:
"I will soon send a message to the American people. The message is in the stage of preparation."
I just got a few comments to that. Is it not just swell with a supplier of unlimited nuclear materials in the Middle East? Al-Qaeda et al are already dancing their dances of victory.
Hopefully somebody decides that 10 days of dawn party is to be followed by one permanent sunset. They want fully nuclear? Then by all means - let them have it.
