Iran says finds unexpectedly high uranium reserve

DUBAI – Iran has discovered an unexpectedly high reserve of uranium and will soon begin extracting the radioactive element at a new mine, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization said on Saturday.

The comments cast doubt on previous assessments from some Western analysts who said the country had a low supply and sooner or later would need to import uranium, the raw material needed for its nuclear program.

Any indication Iran could become more self-sufficient will be closely watched by world powers, which reached a landmark deal with Tehran in July over its program. They had feared the nuclear activities were aimed at acquiring the capability to produce atomic weapons – something denied by Tehran.

  • Only True Idiots and American and Israeli Haters would be for this pathetic Obama/Iran deal, but, that is exactly what the Kenyan Queen and the godless Democrats are, Idiots and Haters of all that is Right and Good! They proved that when their pathetic followers kicked GOD from their platform, Twice, in 2012, which made them satan’s little Piggy Party! Tyrants are all they are!

    So does our government really think that Iran is surprised that they have a windfall of uranium? We are so stupid as a government, and I don’t have the power to stop anything. But what I do have the power to do is prepare myself for the inevitable threat coming from Iran, Russia, China, Syria, and their newly formed coalition. My government can be stupid, but I refuse to be a party to that stupidity. Obama, Kerry, Clinton, and all who were a party to this deal should be prosecuted, found guilty, and executed for putting the American people at risk.

    Thank you Obama and Dem’s you just put us in a war after all. Enough with the kiss backside. He knew this all along.

    Gee right after Obama gets his agreement past the Congress. But the Iranians promised to be good boys. And the Iranians celebrated with an extra round of “Death to America” chants.

    Wow, How fortuitous for iran! Can you imagine not being able to build all those nuclear power plants (for peaceful power only, of course) because of a lack of fuel? (sarc off). This makes the WMD fiasco of the repubs’ war (that demos voted in also, but they never take any blame), pale in comparison. So much for our superior technology being able to detect even traces of evasion of the iran deal.
