Iran prepares to start first nuclear reactor after years of delay, Russia pledges to safeguard


www.foxnews.com

BUSHEHR, Iran – BUSHEHR, Iran (AP) — Iranian and Russian nuclear technicians made final preparations to start up Iran's first reactor on Saturday after years of delays, an operation that will mark a milestone in what Tehran considers its right to produce nuclear energy.

Nationwide celebrations are planned for the fuel loading at the Bushehr facility in southern Iran, while Russia pledges to safeguard the plant and prevent spent nuclear fuel from being shifted to a possible weapons program.

"The startup operations will be a big success for Iran," conservative lawmaker Javad Karimi

So here it is. Now they have what they wanted will it be peaceful? Since thats what they have been preaching all along. And will Israel still strike? I have a feeling that things will start to heat up rapidly now that the fuel is being unloaded. I suppose only time will tell. Whats the chances of the United States putting more sanctions against them now?

its just my opinion but i don't believe Israel will get nuke mainly because its too important of land there....it will be ruined and then they will be unable to build anything like temples etc....over there its Holy land to both the Jews and the Muslims so why would they ruin such a land you know. i think its our own government just causing fear.....however, if they do get bomb i like to go ahead and say in advance forgive me for being wrong.

Hey mods
Iran Begins Fueling First Nuclear Reactor, that is the headline copied exactly from the article? What gives? I just went back and rechecked the headline to make sure I was correct? Not only that but now it points to a different article????

Iran has lots of oil, but no refineries evidently.
So logically to move their society forward, as well as gaining International
Respect, this would be the proper choice. If I am not mistaken, Iran has
signed agreements with the International Community and the IAEA.
Unlike some of their neighboring countries.

Now to be certain I am neither "Pro Iranian", nor "Anti Iranian".

I am just deducing from the information that is available to me.

It must be stated however, that if I were Iranian, I would want to have
this capability due to FEAR of the arms race that has surrounded my
beloved country.

I would make the same statement if I were in Iceland, Antarctica, Israel,
Russia,China, England,France, or here in The United States of America for
that matter. Perhaps anywhere on this Blue Earth of ours.

Granted, The concern remains that a "Madman" will access these capabilities
for unspeakable aims. Are we not ALL vulnerable to this? Already?

Concerning Cold War Nuclear Tests, Chernobyl type events, and all of the
catastrophic fallout, wouldn't the best decision be that none of us fellow
human beings pursue this dangerous enterprise at all?

Study the half life of these elements in detail for a moment.

I pray that intelligence will prevail Regards, Wildmanimal

Can I ask you a question about Turkeys Jewish population. Are they becoming less tolerated by Turks in general due to the activities of Israel?

During World War II Despite the harsh policies of ethnic homogenization during the early republican perio, the Turkish stance towards Jews in German-occupied Europe remained relatively positive. Even though Turkey remained neutral during World War II (until its symbolic declaration of war on Nazi Germany on 23 February 1945) and officially forbade granting visas to German Jews, individual Turkish diplomats (such as Necdet Kent, Namık Kemal Yolga, Selahattin Ülkümen and Behiç Erkin) did work hard to save Jews from the Holocaust. According to Prof. Stanford J. Shaw "some 15,000 Turkish Jews from France, and even of some 100,000 Jews from Eastern Europe" were saved because of Turkish efforts.[29] On the other hand, Turkey has been implicated in the Struma disaster, due to its refusal to allow the Jewish refugees on board to disembark in Turkish territory.

Jews and Muslims lived in peace together in this holy lands under the Ottoman rules.

And That's ,what they gave us now.



israel killed 9 innocent Turks. who the # are you f.cking israel. They WILL pay this.

Looks like there are two Foxnews articles on the same subject because your original is still there. Don't know why the mods would change it except for lack of coffee.

Read the blurb under the picture of the reactor in the foxnews artical:

"Russian and Israel engineers began loading the reactor with fuel on Saturday."

Wow, so the Israeli's are actually helping the Russians to load the fuel? I knew this whole thing was shady from the beginning!!! The freakin Israeli's are in on the whole thing!!

WOW!


That's gotta be a mistake
It's gotta be, for one it says ' Russian and Israel engineers began loading the reactor with fuel on Saturday.' where it should read 'Israeli engineers' to be grammatically correct.

I've just got a screen grab of that one! - I'll edit this post in a second


edit: there ya are!



I think it's a simple typo, it would, or should have read 'Iranian engineers'.

Yes, the Israelis have always been involved in the plant construction. It's just a nuclear power plant but if you only got your news from Fox it was Iranian NUKES every time it was mentioned. It's never even been possible to use this type of reactor fuel for a bomb.

Correct, it's a light water reactor, or LWR - can't be used in the nuke process, which is why the U.S. really hasn't made a fuss about it.

What? Israel helping - that has to be one major typo!! What the hell is going on with that! If it was a typo wouldn't it be corrected like immediately?

All I know is at 2:19am it was worded right. I did a screen grab of the homepage because of the debacle of the title change on my post. I thought someone was trying to pull a fast one on my thread. But it seems they merged articles and thats why all the confusion with my post. Although I prefered my original title over this new wordy one. Still quite the funny typo none the less!!!!

Why am I not surprised that Fox News/Drudge/FreeRepublic are the only ones heavily reporting/spinning/fear mongering this?

Little to no mentions on CNN, MSNBC, HuffPo, et al.

Yawn.

This really is the only reply/post in this thread that matters.

Please stop relying on right wing news sources if you want actual facts on the Middle East. Please, people.

Yes it can. The by-product of the spent fuel from a LWNR is plutonium. Its just generated in much smaller amounts than with a HWNR so to say it CANT be used for bombs=fail. Its just not the "most efficient" method, but its definitely a method nonetheless.
