Iran claims to be industrial nuclear fuel producer.
April 13, 2007 1:11pm CST
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced on Monday that the Natanz facility had begun "industrial-scale" production of nuclear fuel. The country's top nuclear negotiator said workers had begun injecting uranium gas into a new array of 3000 centrifuges. The head of the UN's nuclear watchdog said Iran was operating only 328 centrifuges at its uranium enrichment plant at Natanz, despite its claims to have activated 3000. Mohammed ElBaradei said Iran's nuclear program was a concern but discounted Iran's claims of a major advance in uranium enrichment.

I am glad to see that they are growing. It might be a key element to the growth of their country. A lot of people say they should not have nuclear power. Maybe not but we, the US, dropped nuclear bombs on other countries. So the US should not have nuclear power because we used them against others. Now so many of these people are saying Iran shouldn't be allowed to have nuclear power. I have not heard one good reason as to why they should not have it. Because they might make bombs is not a good answer. The US used nuclear weapons. As far as I am concerned it is the US who should not be allowed to have it.

That is interesting coolseeds. What do you think about a made-up scenerio where the Earth only had one goverment and each country (as it is now) is resposible for certain world duties. In the U.S. case it would be policing. Would this be a more acceptable solution (albeit completely fictional)?
