Today the United Nations Security Council has been informed by Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei (Head of the IAEA) that Iran is continuing its nuclear programme
despite fierce opposition from the West who believe the programme is being used to produce nuclear weapons. This revelation means that Iran has
ignored the Security Council's warning issued one month earlier. The U.S. is trying hard to gain support on tougher action. So far sanctions have
been met with staunch opposition from Russia and China. May 2nd negotiators from US, Russia, China, UK, France and Germany will be meeting in Paris to
further discuss the issue before it hits the Security Council.
Mohamed ElBaradei told the UN Security Council that Tehran had done little to answer questions over its intentions.
The UN wants the research halted amid Western fears - denied by Iran - that Tehran might develop nuclear weapons.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said earlier Iran did not "give a damn" about UN resolutions over its research.

It seems like Iran has finally hit the "point of no return". What they do from this point on will soley depend on their interpretation of the risk
factors. As each day goes by, they will be taking another step in the nuclear direction...and so far nothing has failed to stop them.
