Ahmadinejad Says Iran Is Now a 'Nuclear State' - Iran | Map | News - FOXNews.comTEHRAN, Iran — President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claimed Thursday that Iran has produced its first batch of uranium enriched to a higher level, saying his country will not be bullied by the West into curtailing its nuclear program a day after the U.S. imposed new sanctions.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reiterated to hundreds of thousands of cheering Iranians on the anniversary of the 1979 foundation of the Islamic republic that the country was now a "nuclear state," an announcement he's made before. He insisted that Iran had no intention of building nuclear weapons.
It was not clear how much enriched material had actually been produced just two days after the process was announced to have started.
The United States and some of its allies accuse Tehran of using its civilian nuclear program as a cover to build nuclear weapons but Tehran denies the charge, saying the program is just geared toward generating electricity.
So, Bush passed on taking on Iran, instead leaving the diplomacy to Europe. Obama claimed he'd reach out, and get the Iranians moving... how's that working out for ya?
Israel's gotta be about one step from launching a full on air assault of the county.
