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.
But this can’t be true. The MSM said repeatedly that he wasn’t developing nuclear weapons ... only nuclear energy.
Obama needs to send Irans Revolutionary Guard a sternly worded letter of protest hand delivered via Fed Ex, registered mail return receipt requested.
That will show the Iranians we mean business. No more Mr. Nice Guy.
I wonder if the NYT will print a retraction for this article now....
I just feel so, so . . . . punched.
It lacks punch.
As if we didn’t see this coming. Nuclear proliferation control is like gun control - only those that don’t want it won’t get it.
All the posturing by America and other countries will not stop a country from getting it.
Russia's Medvedev hails "comrade" Obama
Associated Foreign Press (AFP) ^ | April 2, 2009 | Anna Smolchenko
"Russia's Dmitry Medvedev hailed Barack Obama as "my new comrade" Thursday after their first face-to-face talks"
April 1, 2009:
"Obama, Medvedev pledge new era of relations":
Obama, Chavez shake hands at Americas Summit:
He’ll send an email. All in CAPS this time....
From CBS-News, July 29, 2006:
Chavez Vows To 'Stand By Iran'
After Oil Talks In Tehran, Venezuelan Leader Called 'Brother' By Ahmedinejad
"Chavez pledged that his country would 'stay by Iran at any time and under any condition,' state television reported. Ahmadinejad said he saw in Chavez a kindred spirit." "'We do not have any limitation in cooperation,' Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. 'Iran and Venezuela are next to each other and supporters of each other. Chavez is a source of a progressive and revolutionary current in South America and his stance in restricting imperialism is tangible.'":
Bammie is down for the count!
It is sad that Amerika has put a man in a position that is way over his head, and add to that, a chain of command that is even worse.
I think it’s going to catch on! The press not only accepts but defends whatever zero says so the term really fits. As a side note, the press, and the rest of the zero worshipers don’t have voodoo zombie bottles, unless a starbucks cup, or a bottle of evian water is the modern equivelent. (If that’s the case...this is one scary zombie movie we’re living in :-)
Who didn't expect that? Obama is a bitch and every leader that is a man knows it and doesn't respect him.
We should have probably worked harder to undermine Ahmadinejad rather than boost him up by calling him out. He only used that to bolster his support in Iran. Nothing riles up muzzies like examples of how the "Great Satan USA" is picking on little old Iran. We should have ignored him and covertly aided his internal supporters and worked to turn the people of Iran away from satanic Islam and towards Christ.
Just because they can’t build one (yet) doesn’t mean they don’t have one.....or two....or.......
Any guesses on how long it will take before Israel decides to ‘go it alone’? Good lord, I feel bad that we have this wuss in office who won’t defend Israel’s right to protect itself.
Don’t worry, Iran is at least 10 years away from making a bomb.

Our country is run by assholes.
Hit the dirt,
join the crowd,
It’s a Mushroom Cloud!!!!!
(with apologies to the Kingston Trio)
Iran is a nuclear state, and the Administration thinks our biggest problem is getting a healthcare bill the public doesn’t want passed.
What exactly is our policy with regard to Iran’s nuclear intentions?
Gotta do the parade with the missiles in order for it to be believable.
Is that all there is, is that all there is
If that’s all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing
Let’s break out the booze and have a ball
If that’s all there is
Obama’s National Security Chief Of Staff Says “Nucular”
Well now we know what the big surprise was for sure.
Good thing we have zero in office to protect us from this threat.
Wait a minute, has anyone bothered to tell him it is a problem or is he locked behind closed doors still trying to figure out how to ram health care up our butts as the world disintegrates around him?
What say ye Israel? (Since our country under this administration aint gonna do squat).
I think the liberal press is content competing for the left wing viewers. They loathe the right and have been able to make a decent living off of the left. I’m amazed that people like Ellen degenerate keep getting their faces on TV. There is always enough people to watch them to keep then fed. I guess that’s even biblical.
