Iran greets sanctions with defiance

Whew.  Glad to see this thing isn’t escalating any.  I really wonder what Iran is doing though – it seems to me they had a chance to became the great stabilizer in the Mid-East.  Instead they seem to be choosing the opposite role on the global stage.

It’ll be interesting (and scary) to see the UN’s response.  And then the Iranian response to the response, ad nauseam. 

Iran will immediately begin installing 3,000 centrifuges at a uranium enrichment plant as a reaction to sanctions approved by the U.N. Security Council resolution, Tehran’s chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani said in a newspaper interview Sunday.

  1. I don’t really think anyone is against them using nuclear energy for power. It’s “the other thing” they might us it for that has the world nervous.

  2. I read an article the other day that says Iran’s oil revenue stream is declining ten to eleven percent per year. If that is true, maybe they really do need nuclear power to generate electricity….

  3. Keithg – thanks. Those were interesting. I especially like the interview with the kids on the playgound.


  4. Here is a link you would enjoy, there is a section on here that shows video interviews of people from Iran. They apparently jokingly compare their leader to President Bush. (they both involve religion to much in politics) Refreshing to see someone making a show that is trying to be diplomatic.
