There is an old Persian proverb, Esfahān nesf-e jahan — Isfahan is half the world. Maybe it will soon destroy the other half. From AFP, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
TEHRAN (AFP) – Iran said that it will convert new consignments of uranium at its plant outside the central city of Isfahan, in defiance of pressure to renounce such sensitive nuclear activities.
“We have told the (International Atomic Energy) Agency that we are going to inject new initial materials (uranium ore) into the production chain,” Javad Vaidi, an official from Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, told state television on Sunday.
