Does Iran Really Want To Make Nukes?


[Media Source*]

According to Reuters they don't.

Iranian President Mohammad Khatami took a group of journalists deep underground on Wednesday into the heart of a nuclear plant which Washington wants dismantled and whose existence was kept secret until 2002.

About 30 local and foreign journalists visited Natanz uranium enrichment facility, 150 miles south of Tehran, the centerpiece of a disputed atomic fuel drive that Tehran suspended under international pressure in late 2003.


This is an unusual move by Iran who has been claiming for some time that it has no interest in nuclear weapons but to use the nuclear power plant for much needed electricity (although they do have a lot of oil which brings the question of why would they need a nuclear plant).


Iran is determined one way or another to become a nuclear power (energy wise) and has scoffed at the U.S.'s attempts (whether hard or soft) at curbing it's productivity.

Iran scoffed at U.S. incentives aimed at coaxing the Islamic republic to drop its nuclear ambitions and declared Saturday that Washington's overtures did nothing to change Tehran's plans to push ahead with its nuclear program...

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said neither threats nor incentives would alter Iran's determination to develop peaceful nuclear technology. Washington insists Tehran's uranium enrichment program is designed to build a nuclear weapon, not merely to provide alternative energy.


Iran took the reporters the heart of the nuclear power plant but did not show them the centrifuges nor to a pilot enrichment facility located in Natanz. The Iranians built the enrichment facilities underground (about 18 meter's) for fear of attack by Israel or the United States. Here is a picture below for you to enjoy.

France, Britain and Germany are considering letting Iran keep nuclear technology that could be used to make bombs, an apparent move towards a compromise with Tehran, diplomats said on Wednesday.
