    Amount of enriched material unclear just 2 days after process was started

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, flanked by bodyguards, waves to supporters before addressing tens of thousands of Iranians gathered in Azadi Square in southwestern Tehran to mark the 31st anniversary of the Islamic revolution, on Thursday.

    TEHRAN, Iran - President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad claimed Thursday that Iran has produced its first batch of uranium enriched to a higher level, saying his country will not be bullied by the West into curtailing its nuclear program a day after the U.S. imposed new sanctions.

    Ahmadinejad reiterated to hundreds of thousands of cheering Iranians on the anniversary of the 1979 foundation of the Islamic republic that the country was now a "nuclear state," an announcement he's made before. He insisted that Iran had no intention of building nuclear weapons.

    It was not clear how much enriched material had actually been produced just two days after the process was announced to have started.

    White House spokesman Robert Gibbs dismissed Iran's claims, saying that country's leadership has made a series of statement based on politics, not physics.

    The claim of new progress in Iran's nuclear program came a day after the U.S. Treasury Department imposed new sanctions, freezing the assets in U.S. jurisdiction of a Revolutionary Guard general and four subsidiaries of a construction firm he runs.

    David Albright of the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security said that any 20-percent enriched uranium produced just a few days after the start of the process would be "a tiny amount."

    The United States and some of its allies accuse Tehran of using its civilian nuclear program as a cover to build nuclear weapons but Tehran denies the charge, saying the program is just geared toward generating electricity.

    "I want to announce with a loud voice here that the first package of 20 percent fuel was produced and provided to the scientists," he said.

    Enriching uranium produces fuel for nuclear power plants but can also be used to create material for atomic weapons if enriched further to 90 percent or more.

    "We have the capability to enrich uranium more than 20 percent or 80 percent but we don't enrich (to this level) because we don't need it," he said in a speech broadcast live on state television.
    Iran announced Tuesday it was beginning the process of enriching its uranium stockpile to a higher level. The international community reacted by discussing the imposition of new U.N. sanctions.

    Revolutionary Guard assets frozen

    The U.S. Treasury Department went ahead on Wednesday and froze the assets in U.S. jurisdictions of a Revolutionary Guard general and four subsidiaries of a construction firm he runs for their alleged involvement in producing and spreading weapons of mass destruction.

    Tehran has said it wants to further enrich the uranium - which is still substantially below the 90 percent plus level used in the fissile core of nuclear warheads - as a part of a plan to fuel its research reactor that provides medical isotopes to hundreds of thousands of Iranians undergoing cancer treatment.

    But the West says Tehran is not capable of turning the material into the fuel rods needed by the reactor. Instead it fears that Iran wants to enrich the uranium to make nuclear weapons.
    Ahmadinejad restated Iran's position that it was not seeking to build nuclear weapons.

    "When we say we do not manufacture the bomb, we mean it, and we do not believe in manufacturing a bomb," he told the crowd. "If we wanted to manufacture a bomb, we would announce it."

    "We told them the Iranian nation will never give in to bullying and illogical remarks," Ahmadinejad added.

    Western powers blame Tehran for rejecting an internationally endorsed plan to defuse the situation by having Iran export its low enriched uranium for enrichment abroad and returned as fuel rods for the Tehran reactor.

    Iran, in turn, asserts it had no choice but to start enriching to higher levels because its suggested changes to the international plan were rejected.

    The president said Iran will triple the production of its low-enriched uranium in the future but didn't elaborate.

    "God willing, daily production (of low enriched uranium) will be tripled," he said.
    A confidential document from the U.N. nuclear agency shared Wednesday with The Associated Press said Iran's initial effort at higher enrichment is modest, using only a small amount of feedstock and a fraction of its capacities.

    Very funny, Baada ya kupata uwezo wa kuwa na bomu la nuclear, Iran ya leo inawaogopa wairan wenyewe kuliko hata Israel. Ndio maana wanajitahidi kuwaziba midomo kwa mabavu wasiseme wanayotaka kusema. Mwisho wa siku kitakachowaangusha ni those exisisting internal squables.Sote tunafahamu jinsi ilivyo rahisi kutumia weakness ya mtu kumuangusha chini asiweze inuka tena.

    Same vision as mine,

    kama America hataki Iran kuwa na hizo arsenal materials why do they still theirs in stock, nafikiri we dont need nukes, and whoever has the stock please better dismantle all and become a free living planet.

    we dont need any nation who have nuclear bombs, but iran can not say y cant we have while others have, this is not fashion, we can not allow more countries to develop technology to make nuclear bombs while at the same time we keep pushing those already having to dismnatle them all together, people should know its yrs job to dismantle nuclear bombs, its not an issue of one day job done!
    people in those countries which have nuclear bomb dont want them, we shouldnt be laughing about these weapons they can destroy the race of mankind all together!

    Iran wana-take adavantage kwa kuwa wanajua Americans cannot afford kuingia katika vita kwa sasa.

    Also,it will press a war with Israel.

    Un imeshindwa kufanya kazi vizuri,lakini pia wanahitaji nguvu ya kuungwa mkono na Mid-east,pamoja na China ili waweze kuizuia iran.But also,US watapata kazi sana kupata support ya CHINA kwenye kupiga kura za kuiwekea vikwazo Iran especially time kama hii ambayo relationship kati ya US na China iko strained after the former kuiuzia Taiwan Silaha.

    Suluhisho pekee la kuondoa nuclear duniani ni ku-implement Un resolutions on armament and diasarmament kwa mataifa yote duniania though it's imposible.

    Kivipi ni punguani? Kaivamia nchi gani kwa pretext za uongo kama Marekani na mahabithi wenzake?? Ahmedinejad au Iran wana-occupy ardhi ya nchi gani kama Wazayuni dhidi ya ardhi ya Wapalestina?? Ahmedinejad au Iran imewahi kutumia lini silaha za maangamizi dhidi ya nchi nyengine??? Kama Saddam wakati bado akiwa puppet wa MAREKANI ndiye aliyetumia kwa baraka za Marekani na washirika wake dhidi ya Iran??? Kama Marekani walivyotumia silaha za maangamizi dhidi ya Hiroshima na Nagasaki???

    Wacha upumbavu wa kasumba za kimagharibi, face facts!!!

    Suluhisho pekee ni Marekani na mahabithi wenzake wachezee kipigo katika vita inayoendelea hivi sasa huko Afghanistan, ili ulimwengu ubadilike na uhabithi, uongo, kasumba na ubabe viishilie mbali. Au kama watashinda kule, basi Mwenyezi Mungu awaongezee kiburi na kiwafanye vipofu, halafu kiburi chao kiwapelekee kuishambulia/kuivamia Iran kama walivyoivamia Iraq na ulimwengu uingie katika vita nyengine isiyokuwa na obvious end. Mungu ajaalie wachezee mkong'oto bila ya kutarajia na kwa mshituko. Hapo tena status quo ya masuala ya kidunia itabadilika na kila taifa litakuwa na heshima barbara juu ya taifa lenzake. Watu watazungumza, na sio kuburuzana.

    Kama sio hivyo, basi na waendelee kuingia mitegoni. Waanzishe vita na kila Taifa la waislamu bila ya kuvimaliza, Afghanistan, Iraq, na huku Iran. Hivi vita viungane pamoja na hasira ambazo tayari wameshazichokonoa katika mataifa mengine ya waislamu kwa kutumia ma-puppet tyrants kulazimishiwa waislamu kiutawala au occupation: Palestine, Pakistani, Misri, Algeria, nk.

    Vita visivyomalizika, hasira dhidi ya uhabithi wao dhidi ya nchi za watu, kukimbiwa na mahabithi wenzao na kiburi chao ndiko kutakakowamaliza hawa, na si pengine bali ni katika uwanja wa vita. Tayari wamo mtegoni hawa na taratiiibu wataporomoka.

    Iran mikwara tu, NNCHI NYINGI TU ZINAHIZO SIRAHA HAZIPIGI KELELE, ilikua hayohayo kwa Iraq, walijisifu kuwa wanasiraha kali kali zakuiumiza Israel na USA na mali zao zote zilizoko nchi za ghuba..USA akatishika kweli, akaenda kuwatandika kulekule kwao kabla hawajaleta zogo.
    sasa binafsi yangu naamini kuwa Irani inatishia watu bure, na ndani ya miaka mitano jamaa wataanda mission kubwa kwenda kuwanyanganya nguvu za nishati hizo......

    Ahmadnejad si Punguani.
    Ana elimu ya kutosha, Masters holder. Mwanasiasa aliyepevuka, Wamarekani wamemshindwa. Mbali na plot nyingi walizomfanyia ikiwa pamoja na kumpandikizia vibaraka wa upinzani. Anaendesha taifa lake Kisayansi. Ni mkweli na si bendera fuata upepo. Punguani ni yule asiyeyaona hayo.

    Punguani ni yule ambaye amashawahi kuzitumia silaha za kuangamiza hebu jikumbushe historia ya Hiroshima na Nagasaki ya tarehe 6 August 1945, je unajua ni marekani aliyefanya unyama huo? ukipata wasaa soma katika link hii http://history1900s.about.com/od/worldwarii/a/hiroshima.htm

    je nchi gani ambayo imekuwa ikiuwa raia wengi wasio na hatia kati ya Marekani, Israeli na Iran? Je msimamo mkali wa Ahmadinejad kuhusu marekani na washirika wake ndiyo umwite punguani?

    Hahahahaha! marekani ameshindwa kwa watalebani mpaka leo ataweza kwa Irani? Aliweza kumtoa Saadam baada ya kupata usaidizi wa nchi nyingine. Rudi katika historia utaona mmarekani amekuwa akishinda vita kwa taabu sana, hata nchi ndogo kama Vietnam ilimtoa jasho.
