Just in case anyone is still laboring under any illusion that the Thug-In-Chief has any peaceful intentions whatsoever. Of course, he is still maintaining the facade. And no doubt hordes of useful idiots will believe him. From Reuters, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
TEHRAN (Reuters) – President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday said Iran would not halt its drive to produce its own nuclear fuel because it did not trust the West to guarantee a supply to feed its planned atomic power reactors.
Speaking in Mecca, where he was attending an Islamic summit, Ahmadinejad said Iran’s right to develop a full civilian nuclear program was non-negotiable.
“We are not allowed to negotiate on the principle of having peaceful nuclear technology,” Iran’s official IRNA news agency quoted him as telling a news conference.
European Union leaders warned Iran on Wednesday not to pursue work on machines able to make uranium fuel enriched to the grade used in nuclear bombs, saying such moves defied efforts to ease an international crisis over Tehran’s atomic program.
