The nuclear fuel cycle at the laboratory level has been completed. At this historic moment, with the blessings of God almighty and the efforts made by our scientists, I declare here that the laboratory-scale nuclear fuel cycle has been completed and young scientists produced enriched uranium needed to the degree for nuclear power plants. Industrial-scale enrichment of uranium will be the next important step which we can reach an agreement upon.
And isn't it about time? As a charter member of the Axis of Evil, the Islamic Republic of Iran has been repeatedly branded by U.S. President George W. Bush as “a real threat." State supporter of the terrorist organisation Hezballah, Iran's president has suggested that "a piece of Europe, the United States, Canada or Alaska" would be a more appropriate location for the Jewish state of Israel than on land taken from innocent Palestinians. In addition to its well-publicised nuclear ambitions, "Iran is now the only regional military power that poses a significant conventional military threat to Gulf stability." Compared to the fiction of the "growing threat" that was Iraq under Saddam Hussein, the facts in Iran appear largely undisputed. Under the Bush Doctrine of pre-emption, should the US or its allies be threatened by terrorists or by rogue states that are engaged in the production of weapons of mass destruction" unilateral military action - "a policy of pre-emptive war" - is called for. The buildup to war has been going on for a long time. Recent reports in the German media suggest that the United States may be preparing its allies for an imminent military strike against Iran. Al Jazerra says the war has already begun.
