While there is lots of distraction presented here and elsewhere - Plame, the CIA, the NSA, the latter being said to be outright evil - the mullahs go on with their "program" without qualms:"Iran Develops Uranium Separation Technology"http://www.arabnews.com/?page=4§ion=0&article=75617&d=2&m=1&y=2006"TEHRAN, 2 January 2006 — Iran has developed technology to separate uranium from its ore, reinforcing the Islamic republic's self-sufficiency in the nuclear fuel cycle, state television reported yesterday.The technology, known as a mixer-settler, is used to separate the uranium from the mined ore to produce concentrated uranium oxide — also known as yellowcake — which can then be converted and enriched in nuclear fuel work.“The mixer-settler can be used effectively in the fuel cycle for producing zirconium and uranium,” one of the engineers, who helped develop the machinery, said on television."...And not to my surprise, the mullahs rejected the russian proposal to enrich their uranium in Russia only:"Iran rejects Russian nuclear offer" http://www.iranfocus.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=5100 "TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) -- Iran's chief nuclear negotiator has rejected a Russian offer to produce nuclear fuel in its plants for Iran, the latest effort to resolve a diplomatic impasse over Tehran's nuclear program.Speaking on state-run television Sunday, Ali Larijani argued the offer would deny his nation's right to "be in charge of its own fate" on energy matters. He said Iran would be willing to have some, but not all, of its nuclear fuel produced outside the country.Iran's hard-line conservative government insists it has the right to restart nuclear facilities and enrich uranium for the production of nuclear energy, despite fears by some other nations --including the United States -- that Tehran's true goal is to produce nuclear weapons."... Inside Iran, arbitrary detentions and murder go on unabated:http://daneshjoo.org/publishers/smccdinews/article_4483.shtml And Mr. A. from Tehran made some vile ventilations when he declared now:"Europe wanted to complete Holocaust"http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3193425,00.html"Hard-line Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who said Nazis' attempt to eradicate Jews in Holocaust was a 'myth,' now charges that European countries sought to complete genocide by establishing Israel, a Jewish state in the midst of Muslim countries. “Don't you think that continuation of genocide by expelling Jews from Europe was one of their (the Europeans') aims in creating a regime of occupiers of Al-Quds (Jerusalem)?” the official Islamic Republic News agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying. “Isn't that an important question?”"...No it is not. Because it is long ago and has no relevance with the present situation of Iran i.e. the vile mullahs that are longing for a nuclear bomb and are doing everything to deceive the rest of us.It is in fact pure distraction and the attempt to divert from the real thing.Mr. A. from Tehran is also trying to smear Europeans, trying to put "pressure" on them, before the start of so-called negotiation in mid-January. Hopefully this ridiculous tactic is futile.Ursula
