He said it had produced its first batch of 20 per cent enriched uranium - and had the capability to enrich to far higher levels at its Natanz plant. Enriching uranium produces fuel for a nuclear power plants but can also be used to create material for atomic weapons. The international community has warned Iran against further enrichment activities, threatening new UN sanctions.

At least he didn’t say “nucular”, or the elitists might have really had something to criticize
Another Accomplishment for President Obama.
Ya beat me to it, silverleaf!
Someone please send Jimmy Carter a thank you note. The chickens of his disastrous presidency have now come home to roost.

“Weapons” grade uranium. Bought I thought their party line was that their Nuclear ambitions were all for peaceful purposes.
Today’s talking points to the media, passed down from the White House
- a failure of Bush’s lack of diplomacy and “confrontation”
- a failure of Bush’s diplomacy and his lack of confrontation
- Bush’s fault- he called them “evil” and hurt their feelings
-America’s fault, we did not listen respectfully
- America’s fault, the CIA overthrew the govt
- Israel’s fault because Jooos with nukes threatens the islamic world(sarc)
yada yada yada
Thankfully, the Iranian moderates are really in charge of Iran, or they will be real soon, so we can’t say or do anything to upset the Iranians and damage their chances (US State Dept policy of past 32 years)
Amen to that. I get so sick of the school nannys and their pronunciation rules.
Iran has smushed little Obammy without a shot.
LOL. Now THAT was a dumb one! Mispronounced in 54 of the 57 states.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the press started pronouncing corps as corpse in auto-cya for zero, just as when Bill Clinton lied (and lied and lied and lied), lying suddenly became....not so bad, even a good thing.
Ok...we knew this on Tuesday. We knew they fired up the reactor to produce the 20% grade stuff. Now it is just a matter of weeks until they get the full 90%.
Sternly worded letter to follow.
That will be fun to watch. It's amazing how shameless the press is. Yesterday my wife and I were watching Sawyer and Steffy discuss, breathlessly "what do the Democrats need to do to win back the independents". I yelled at the TV, as I often do, "WHY DON'T YOU JUST SAY 'WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO TO GET THEM BACK' ". The onesidedness is breathtaking.
“...Nuclear ambitions were all for peaceful purposes.”
But they are! They intend to bring many, many to the peace of Paradise!
We should coin a new phrase right now. “Press Corpse”: a spiritually dead liberal member of the main stream media. Someone call Rush and I want a quarter everytime someone uses it.
