Iran playing games with nukes

by on January 21st, 2004

For the same reason I warned about fully trusting North Korea in their proposal to freeze nuclear activities a couple weeks ago, Iran’s actions after making a similar declaration further illustrates the importance of being wary in dealing with rogue nations.

After announcing it had halted its uranium enrichment programs late in 2003, Iran is playing games with the wording of agreements it had made with the international community.

The IAEA last autumn asked Iran to stop “enrichment-related activities.” But while Tehran has stopped introducing uranium into enrichment equipment, it continues to make and assemble that equipment — centrifuges used to spin uranium into low grade fuel for peaceful use or high-grade material, for weapons.

After all, we should remember the road by which North Korea got their nukes in the first place.
