Ahmadinejad: Iran not afraid to make nuke weapon

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s president says his country isn’t afraid of making a nuclear weapon but doesn’t intend to do so.
Iranian state television on Thursday quoted President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as saying: “If we do want to make a bomb, we are not afraid of anybody.”
Iran has long insisted that its nuclear programs are peaceful and meant only to generate power for a future nuclear reactor network.
But the U.N. Security Council has passed four sets of sanctions against Iran for refusing to freeze activities that could be used in a weapons program.
The U.N. says Iran also blocked an IAEA probe into allegations of secret experiments that could reflect attempts to develop an arms program.


So they are not going to make a bomb, but just felt the need to come out and say…they aren’t afraid of anybody?


It’s like the guys who have to drive the really big trucks…I can just picture Ahmadinejad now…with his chest all puffed up. ‘I’m not scared!! I’m a tuff guy on the playground toooo’

Poor guy :smiley:

5 Bushehr experts died in Russian plane crash

MOSCOW: Russia’s top nuclear agency says that five experts involved in the construction of Iran’s Bushehr nuclear plant have died in Monday’s plane crash in northeastern Russia.

This could set them back a bit.

No those folks designed the plant that is already built.
