See also WAFF > [Memri.org] TEHRAN DECLARES INTENT TO ENRICH URANIUM TO 90% FOR MILITARY PURPOSES - NUCLEAR SUBMARINES.
Artic denotes sevral sources describing Iran's intent as per 50-70% non-military enrichment, e.g. for Commercial-Merchant Shipping, Medicine, + of course NucEnergy.
Although Iran claims that any contemporary Nuke Subs it devs can be powered at less than 90% enrichment as above, Perts doubt it since it ITO it makes no sense for Iran [or any nation in 21st century] to use older or obsolete NucPwrSys, Methods from the post-WW2 = early-to-intermediate Cold War??? period.
AGAIN, AS PER ITS DESIRED "JAPAN/EGYPT" MODEL IRAN WILL NOT DEV NUCWEAPS PER SE, BUT ONLY THE TECHS PROWESS/PROFICIENCIES = ECONS OF SCALE TO BE ABLE TO QUICKLY PRODUCE NUCWEAPS IN TIMES OF SERIOUS NATIONAL CRISIS, hence the burden is on the US, + only the US [+ by extens US puppet Israel] to prove or explain to the UNO + Internat Community why it is unilaterally waging war agz non-Nukulaar, peace-loving Iran.
AND DOING SO IN GROSS VIOLATION OF IT + WEST'S OWN CONCEPT OR PREMISE OF ALLEGED FAIR-MINDED "GLOBALISM".

#2 I knew I'd seen that bomb and fuse somewhere before. Great bit of subtle Jewish humour. Nicely done!

#3 unfortunately - the only wiley coyote in this story appears to be Ahmadinejad. :-)
IF the wolrd had drawn real red lines and stuck with them ... Bibi migfht have been right. Instead, what we have learned is that we are living in a generation of leaders who don't have the words "red line" anywhere in their dictionary. Was their a "red line" over improper behavior on Wall Street ... a "red line" ... a "red line" over limits on government deficits? It seems that leaders don't even own a red pencil ... just a giant ERASER to remove the last set of promises. :-)
