Iran Is Loading Fuel Into Its Nuclear Plant

From Iran’s Press TV:

Iran loads fuel into Bushehr N plant

Tue Oct 26, 2010

Iran has started injecting fuel into the core of the Bushehr nuclear power plant in the southern port city of Bushehr which is the country’s first nuclear reactor.

The fuel was transferred to the Bushehr nuclear plant on Tuesday morning, a Press TV correspondent reported.

The power plant will become operational once all 163 fuel rods are injected to its core. According to Iranian officials, the reactor will begin generating electricity in early 2011.

The facility operates under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

The construction of the Bushehr plant started in 1975 when Germany signed a contract with Iran. Germany, however, pulled out of the project following the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Iran then signed a deal with Russia in 1995, under which the plant was originally scheduled to be completed in 1999, but completion of the project was repeatedly delayed. The nuclear power plant was finally finished with the help of Russia following a three-decade delay…

This effectively puts an end to any military attack upon the Bushehr plant. Way to go, Mr. Obama. Oh, and thanks again, Mr. Putin.

Meanwhile, lest we forget, Mr. Obama wants the Senate to ratify a nuclear reduction pact with Russia.

    I can’t help but think that over time, like all things technical in the arab world, that this latest effort will ultimately fail. They may like to think they have it all “goin’ on” but without heavy and constant assistance and oversight and support, they muck up pretty much everything technical.

    So too, this.

      Right you are Rusty. If it is just the Iranians doing this, two, three years tops they will probably have their own Chernobyl. If they have outside technicians like the French, that is a whole different matter. Let’s hope and pray they don’t trust the infidels and decide to do it themselves. Giving advance technology to the jihadis is give a digital watch to an Aborigine.

    Now hang on there … we can still bomb Bushehr! And not risk a single quantum of radioactive pollution.

    Neutron bombs. Eliminate the crazies. Facilities intact. Presto chango, problem solved.

    CBN News: Waitiing for Islam’s Messiah
    by George Thomas July 17 2008

    QOM, Iran — Iran’s president believes Allah has chosen him to prepare the world for the coming of an Islamic ‘savior’ called the Mahdi.

    But before the Mahdi’s return, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad believes there must be global chaos – even if he has to create it himself.

    Whether it’s his belief that Israel should be wiped off the map, denials of the Holocaust, obsession with going nuclear, or support for radical Islamic terrorist groups, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a man on a divine mission…

    On a recent Tuesday afternoon, CBN News made that journey heading south out of Iran’s capital, Tehran. Some 95 miles, and a couple of wrong turns later, we arrived at the Jamkaran mosque on the outskirts of Qom.

    Behind the Jamkaran mosque there is a well. According to many Shiite Muslims, out of this well will emerge one day their version of an Islamic ‘savior.’

    They call him the Mahdi or the 12th Imam.

    Shiite Muslims believe the Mahdi, a descendent of the Prophet Mohammed, vanished in the middle of the 9th century.

    Cantrell told us, “The 12th Imam disappeared, around the age of 9, with a promise that he would return and he would bring Islam to its total fruition as the world’s last standing religion.”

    Enter Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Since becoming the president of Iran in August 2005, Ahmadinejad has emerged as the Mahdi’s most influential follower.

    In almost all his speeches, Ahmadinejad begs Allah to hasten the return of the Mahdi. At a recent military parade attended by CBN News in Tehran, Ahmadinejad said, “Oh, Allah, please facilitate Imam Mahdi’s early return and make us one of his supporters.”

    He said something similar last September just before ending a speech at the United Nations in New York.

    Ahmadinejad said, “Oh mighty Lord, I pray to you to hasten the emergence of your last repository [a reference to the Mahdi], the promised one, that perfect and pure human being, the one that will fill this world with justice and peace.”

    A few days later, back home in Iran, Ahmadinejad told a group of religious leaders that during his UN speech, he felt a ‘bright light’ around him.

    His reactions were captured on video and later posted on a conservative Iranian website.

    Ahmadinejad said, “I felt it myself. I felt that the atmosphere suddenly changed, and for those 27 or 28 minutes, all the leaders of the world did not blink. When I say they didn’t move an eyelid, I’m not exaggerating. They were looking as if a hand was holding them there, and had just opened their eyes to the message of the Islamic Republic.”….

    Cantrell explained, “Ahmadinejad has stated that this chaos must take place before the Mahdi can come on the scene.”

    Some wonder if Ahmadinejad believes these are ‘the end times,’ and whether his calls for the destruction of Israel and nuclear pursuits are ways to accelerate the divine timetable.

    Cantrell further explained, “With him it is a win-win situation. If we attack him, he wins because chaos happens. If we don’t attack him, he gets to create the chaos which he has said he is willing to do and he will do.”…

    The night begins with a visit to the sacred well. CBN News is given a rare opportunity to visit with people praying there. The opening of the well is covered by a green-like metal box to prevent people from jumping in.

    Most of the time here is spent praying and kissing the metal box. Others scribble prayer requests to the Mahdi on pieces of paper that are then dropped into the well.

    “….I stood at the entrance to the Jamkaran mosque; and I’ve been told that as a non-Muslim I am not allowed to go inside the mosque….”

    Nedal said, “And because we believe that he is going to come back soon we can believe in heaven and hell and we can believe in the life after death.”

    Ahmadinejad’s government reportedly gave $20 million to help renovate the Jamkaran mosque. There are rumors that he’s planning to build a railway line connecting Tehran and Jamkaran, to ferry the faithful.

    And apparently Ahmadinejad has also drawn up the plans for the road the Mahdi will take when he returns.
    “….. The Mahdi will teach Jesus to pray; at which time Jesus will then replace the Gospel with the Koran, and then all of us Christians, wherever you are on the face of the earth, will convert to Islam because Islam will be deemed the one lasting pure religion.”

    As the West drifts closer to a potential showdown over Iran’s nuclear program, followers of the Mahdi are getting ready for judgment day.

    And many of them are convinced that President Ahmadinjead will fulfill his divine mission to prepare the world for the coming of the Islamic ‘savior.’

      If they’re ready to see an apocalypse, I don’t see the need to keep them waiting anything longer. But that’s just me, maybe too hasty.

      After all its a good thing we have a president who cares so much about human rights. Remember all the support he lent to Iran’s grassroots election protest last year? Oh yeah. Well he did sue and report his own state to the UN for wanting to protect its border from the daily massacres happening a couple miles South. What a hero for peace and justice 12th Imam Mahdi Obama is.
