It's all well and good for them to say so, but are they willing to submit to inspections, etc.?

They could be telling the Truth, and lying in their teeth simultaneously. Nuclear reactors create Plutonium out of U238. Some of this Plutonium gets burned in the reactor, but some is left behind in the spent fuel rods. Pull the rods, and the Plutonium is CHEMICALLY seperable from the Uranium, a relatively much simpler process than Uranium enrichment. So, with no Uranium enrichment ability, they buy enriched Uranium fuel rods (from the French, Germans, and Russians), use them, extract the Plutonium: eh voila Nuclear Fissle Material suitable for bombs.

The intelligence agencies all say they are so they must be.

Good question and.......
by lylesg / November 15, 2004 10:07 AM PST

as mark pointed out can the UN be trusted? Hell no! It will be interesting to see how the Bush folks approach this one. This is probably a time buying ploy by Iran, but I am in hopes that they live in fear inevitable invasion by the U.S. should they continue with their non-monitored development of nuclear materials. At this point no one knows for sure.

Lately, our military has been balls to the walls forcing down the insurgent strong holds in Iraq and it?s not a pretty site to see (Iraq)-- mostly for them and the rest of the terrorist supporting regimes in the middle east. Iran doesn?t want the U.S. military to come calling for them now that we are next door and Bush is not backing down. Lybia saw the light, so hopefully Iran and others will follow suit.

My optimistic thoughts for this night.

No, I don?t care to purchase a bridge either.

Iran Wants to Change Conditions of Freeze / Update on Iran

The Iranians are actively trying the same shell game that Saddam Hussein used for so long, secure that while the U.S. might not buy it, the Euros can be relied on to fold like so many cheap card tables: Iran wants nuke freeze amended:

Iran has requested amending the terms of its freeze of uranium enrichment activities so that it could continue "research and development" of technology that can be used to make atomic weapons, diplomats said on Wednesday.

"The Iranians asked to be allowed to continue conducting research and development with centrifuges during the freeze, but the Europeans told them no," a Western diplomat told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

Iran promised France, Britain and Germany last week it would suspend its entire uranium enrichment program and all related activities in a bid to avoid a report to the U.N. Security Council and possible economic sanctions. The suspension, which includes all work with centrifuges, took effect on Monday.

Centrifuges purify uranium to fuel power plants or weapons by spinning at supersonic speeds.

"Iran has asked to be allowed to test centrifuge rotors during the freeze," said a diplomat, who added that this would require permission to operate several dozen centrifuges.

The Euros "told them no"; however, the mullahs know that, when push comes to shove, they'll roll over lest their precious oil interests in Iran be threatened.

"Test centrifuge rotors", my backside!

Agree with you!

The UN with their attitude will take 12 years to make a decision if Iraq was any guide:)

Maybe we'll learn and make the right decision in 12 years. That would be a nice change of pace.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
