Iran reports nuclear progress as sanctions loom

" Iran announced a nuclear fuel breakthrough and test-fired a new radar-evading medium-range missile in the Gulf on Sunday, moves that could further antagonize the West at a time when Tehran is trying to avert harsh new sanctions on its oil industry."

"This great achievement will perplex the West, because the Western countries had counted on a possible failure of Iran to produce nuclear fuel plates,"

The new nuclear rods were made with uranium ore deposits mined in Iran and have been inserted into the core of Tehran's research nuclear reactor, the Iranian Atomic Energy Organisation said on Sunday.

Iran "can now produce key radioactive elements" and has moved "steps forward on the nuclear path".

Earlier on Sunday, Iran said it has successfully test fired a medium-range surface-to-air missile during navy war games taking place near the strategic Strait of Hormuz.

"This medium-range surface-to-air missile is equipped with the latest technology to combat radar-evading targets and intelligent systems which try to disrupt missile navigation," Mahmoud Mousavi, navy spokesman, was quoted as saying by the official IRNA news agency."

Wisdom is ignored

"Do not insult Americans with Rumsfeldian nostrums like: “The absence of evidence is NOT evidence of absence.” Rather, be up-front with the American people. Tell them the truth about the conclusions of our intelligence community."

Therefore the curse continues

" Afghanistan has become something of a zombie war – a dead conflict that violently carries on."

The Taliban have shown little urgency in a peace process, perhaps calculating that they just need to wait until 2014, when the US says it will leave.

In the US, the issue of ending the war has lost its potency because of a similar perception that it's winding down anyway."
