Iran says it will speed up nuclear program

VIENNA — In a defiant move ahead of nuclear talks, Iran has announced plans to vastly increase its pace of uranium enrichment, which can make both reactor fuel and the fissile core of warheads. Eager to avoid scuttling those negotiations, world powers are keeping their response low-key.

Iran told the International Atomic Energy Agency of its intentions last week, and the IAEA informed member nations in an internal note seen by The Associated Press on Thursday.

The brief note quoted Iran as saying new-generation IR2m “centrifuge machines . . .will be used” to populate a new “unit” – a technical term for an assembly that can consist of as many as 3,132 centrifuges.

    Yes! They are different from us, they have brown skin, and they don't agree with us that we should control the world. Of course we should kill them all. Funny thing, however, is that we are the only country that used a nuclear bomb to kill an enemy... an enemy who tried to surrender one month BEFORE we bombed them. Oh, what a righteous nation we have!

    Any low information poster,you incl can GOOGLE and see how you're horribly wrong about Japan..Truman (the rare decisive Democrat) made a decision not to lose 10's of thousands of GI's in a bloody land invasion...many brave GI's went on to lead long lives thanks to the atomic bomb..but I'm not interested in forensics here Mister..Iran is a rogue nation,bent on the destruction of Israel and btw you..if you're a Westerner..they deny the holocaust and their people are suffering..vis a vis our sanctions sure..but it's the confrontational leadership of Iran that's it's main problem..Are you a man mister who stands by his allies?..The nuclear Genie is way too prevalent.. any country we can stop from going Nuclear as regards armaments is worth all the pathetic bleeding heart and in this case erroneous crap I have to read from people like you......MADE IN AMERICA..TESTED IN JAPAN...seemed fair @ the time I guess.

    Note written in the late 1800s after the civil war....Satanist Albert Pike and Three World Wars “The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil...... Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.” 4

    You know, G-Man, there is a 7-step program to overcome NeoCon-ism. I did it, you can too. The first step is to admit you are a NeoCon. The second is to admit that Israel is not our 51st state... in fact, they are a foreign nation that has, on occasion, been hostile to the US. Remember the USS Liberty? The rest of the steps are just like these... you have to give up the lies you've invested heavily in and seek the truth. You won't wake up one day and know all truth... your brain won't let it happen like that because. Like a long term healthy diet... you have to make a lifestyle change. G-man, let that change be toward the truth. If you need help, I'm here for you.

    @So we're going back to 1967 huh?..in the heat of a war a tragic mistake was made...Investigations and research were done that RLW would have been proud of...1967 Mister??..This isn't forensics..this is freaking archeology...I'm not going to waste my time convincing you how important Israel is to the region and the USA..You think we bombed Japan for a "test run" you think Israel attacked a valued ally...you are a delusional person of indeterminate age,nationality and race...I won't be answering anymore Mister Posts..I think you'd be better off conversing with STR who enjoys the same status in my book...Like the flight attendant says put the oxygen mask on yourself first before trying to help others....

    G-man, you've got me rolling on the floor laughing now! I'm in your book! I know you've never written one... and from your demonstrated knowledge of history... you've likely never read one either! Oh my... my side is splitting! But seriously, Israel? Its purpose today is obviously to promote a form of nationalism (without a nation) called Zionism. While the Zionist certainly have their own agenda, America gets drug in because of the conspiracy of the military-industial-media complex (public-private-propaganda partnership). Your sons and daughters are sent to die for profits and nationalism (and not even our nation!) while the media calls them heros. Check out General Smedley Butler's book, War is a Racket. I'm nobody who don't know nuttin, but General Butler is an insider who knows what he's talking about.

    Letting Israel get overrun by those beasts is a very bad idea. The Saracens won't stop with Israel either---they will be back to visit New York and Washington again and your beliefs will get us all killed because you won't defend the USA or our allies. Dumb!

    I don't know about the rest of this stuff, but seems to me the Japanese sealed their fate by unleashing the Kamikazes. Any enemy that will threaten sacrificing its last life to kill you is inviting genocide. I’m firmly convinced that if the U.S. had a stockpile of atomic bombs in 1945, it would have kept using them, one-by-one, until there was nothing worth invading Japan for. The result would have been the same for the Japanese side if the U.S. had invaded as planned, but there would have been not tens of thousands, but hundreds of thousand U.S. GIs saved. The humanity of the U.S. would have been demonstrated by using the bombs one-by-one and not en masse. With the two bombs we had, we can see it gave Hirohito a chance to reflect on his duty and call for a surrender.
