Why would fuel be removed from a reactor?
Testing "potency" since it's new to the country?
Installation into a war-head?
Lots of questions, but IAEA has a right to know yes? That was part of the post-talks agreement?
CNN BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: U.N. nuclear watchdog: Iran not cooperating enough for agency to conclude nation is conducting "peaceful activities."

What do you think they wanted the reactor for anyway?
Seriously? Why does any country want a nuclear reactor / power plant for? Um...maybe for electrical power?
It really chaps my hide when people have a fit about Iran having a nuclear power plant, but have no compuction about more aggressive countries having hundreds of nuclear bombs, ready to go.
If our nuclear armament is supposed to be a "deterrent", then I imagine Iran feels the same way.
This is a false argument to get people to agree with a real war. Same as Iraq (remember the WMDs that were not there?).
Iran knows that Israel is salivating to start World War III. You're alluding to Iran being a threat is like you crying about a mouse on the floor when there's an elephant and a gorilla right in front of you.
