    Russia: Iran close to nuke capability

    Russia: Iran close to nuke capability

    Medvedev statement comes after Teheran-Moscow spat on UN sanctions.

    Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said Monday that Iran was approaching the point at which it would be able to make nuclear weapons, Reuters reported.

    During a meeting of international ambassadors in Moscow, Medvedev said "Iran is moving closer to possessing the potential which in principle could be used for the creation of nuclear weapons."

    The statement was a rare public admission by the Kremlin that Iran may have the intention of building a nuclear weapon. Reuters said the statement came after an argument with Iran over Russia's support of sanctions against Iran.

    Well, the cat's out of the bag - and let's hope the 3 US battle carrier groups outside iran will be used to do what should have been some 10 years ago: destroy this cancerous regime and wipe it and its defenders from the face of the map.

    It's going to be interesting to see how Russia plays Iran in the future.

    Hmm - I don't know about this info.
    How can *one* country admit the actions of another country?

    I mean - I know about the info - but how can Russia just stand up and declare this on Iran's behalf? What else is really going on? Is this a "hey! look over there! A rabbit!" moment?

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Misleading thread title

    Russia said Iran is nearly the point at which it could build a nuclear weapon, not that it is

    Erm, sorry, but look at what he said:

    Nowhere did he say "Iran is building nuclear weapons". In fact, it has been pretty common knowledge for years that Iran is "moving closer to possessing the potential which in principle could be used for the creation of nuclear weapons."

    This is hype.

    Russia would have much better info themselves on it and are playing a political move to separate themselves from Iran as it develops nuclear capabilities it doesn't really desire it to have. Who do you think designed their nuclear technology. I dont know absolutely for sure. But these def. arent american designed nuclear enrichment plants.

    Exactly it is completely politically motivated.

    They are constructing an Iranian nuclear facility and have benefited politically from the United States' inability to counter their other geopolitical moves. Our distraction has been their benefit.
