Iran Says It Has Begun Loading Fuel at Nuclear Reactor
TEHRAN — Iran said on Tuesday that it had begun loading the first of 163 fuel rods into the core of its first nuclear reactor, set to go into operation early next year, and vowed to pursue nuclear activities “in other areas.”
Iran’s nuclear program has spread deep concerns in the West because governments, including the United States, believe Tehran has ambitions to build a nuclear weapon and do not accept its denials.
God help the U.S. and other Nato countries, and Israel if a large country in the Middle East is able to defend itself against wars of aggression. If we can’t pound them back to the stone age, what bargaining chips do we have left at our disposal?
AP could not have said it better myself. I would add fOr the benefit of warmongering right wing republicans, Iran is one of the oldest civilizations on the planet. They have as much right as anyone, including the only country on the planet to have used nuclear weapons on a civilian population, and has threatened other countries as recently as the last administration (which happened to be republican) to have a nuclear weapons program. This is a red herring which less enlightened MSM hypnotized automatons nit only believe but propagate.
I guess some out there are sad to see Rahm go. I guess Israel has it’s sghts on Chicago.
ps If I were a country with the oil reserves of Iran I would have had a nuclear deterrent a long time ago.
