RT: Iran revolution marked amid pressure on nuke evolutionSubmitted by meekandmild on Thu, 02/11/2010 - 11:54
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has claimed the country's produced its first batch of 20 percent enriched uranium. He was speaking before thousands of supporters in Tehran commemorating the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Ahmadinejad declared to the cheering crowd, the country's now a nuclear state, but it has no intention of making an atomic bomb. However the announcement's likely to fuel tension with the West, which has been deeply suspicious about Tehran's controversial nuclear program.
