World: Iran claims to have its own yellowcake (not from a grocery store)

  • But here’s the real question: Do they have chocolate
    Iran revealed today, ahead of a major nuclear conference in Geneva, that they’ve started producing their own yellowcake uranium, a key step in creating their own nuclear fuel. (Or, if you read into that, nuclear weapons.) The head of Iran’s atomic energy organization, Ali Akbar Salehi, claimed that the uranium was mined from Southern Iran. Also, he had this to offer up: “Again Iran has shown the ill-wishers and international criminals that we are standing up to pressures and resistance is the first lesson of our revolution and we would like to assure you that we will make you regret your devilish moves.” Uh, thanks? (This pic comes from Stuart Spivack, who we’re guessing doesn’t have any uranium) source
