Iran To Build 5 Uranium Enrichment Sites

From the Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA):

Iran to declare good news on centrifuges to be used in new sites: AEOI   


TEHRAN (ISNA)-The Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi said on Monday that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is to announce good news on the kind of centrifuges that are to be installed in new enrichment sites which are to be built.

Iranian ministers during a meeting held in late December decided that the AEOI should within two months start construction of five enrichment sites whose places have been found across the country.

The ministers also agreed that the organization offers suitable locations for the other five sites.

According to a plan already discussed, Iran’s government needs to supply fuel for the 20,000 megawatts of power required for the country’s power plants and the measure needs building 10 enrichment sites with the same enrichment capacity of Natanz nuclear facility.

The ten enrichment sites will be constructed in a way that they are protected against any attack, Salehi told ISNA.

AEOI has found nearly 20 locations for building the sites, he said adding, "we have informed President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of these places through a report, these places have potentials for establishment of the enrichment sites.

He added 10 places will be selected among them.

Salehi continued Iran may start construction of two new enrichment sites as ordered by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the Iranian new calendar year which starts on March 21.

He also said Iran is to use new centrifuges in the two new sites.

We still don’t understand why the Iranians don’t harness their abundant sunshine and get their electricity from solar power.

They are so backward.

    Robert Gibbs assured us the Obama Administration ‘knows’ the Iranians can’t enrich uranium to the 20%+ standard.

    Boy, I’ve lived this story my whole life:

    Gov’t: “Don’t look here! What’s all that going on in Vietnam? We must stop those baddies!” (while you aren’t looking, increasing the size of gov’t 10 fold)

    Gov’t: “Oh my God! Russia has nukes! Look over there!” (stealing your rights out of your pocket)

    Gov’t: “Look! Jiminy-Jillickers! What’s going on in Afghanistan!” (institutes fascist homeland security department)

    Gov’t: “Wowzers! Iraq is up to something! Look, look right now! Look over there!” (ratchets up taxes and takes away your privacy rights)

    Gov’t: “Holy Crap! What’s all this in Iran! Quick! Look right now or you’ll miss it, I swear to God, look over there right now!”

    Ugh! So what if the abusive government is concerned about some other government? It’s really hard to get riled up about Pakistan or Iran, when the biggest threat to Americans is the American government.
