    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad witnesses insertion of Iran's first home-made nuclear fuel rods into a medical reactor in Tehran.

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday inaugurated three new nuclear projects, in a ceremony that was broadcast live on state television network IRIB.

    "This is another huge step in Iran's nuclear technology and this path should be decisively continued, and all the shouting, threats and intimidations by the West should be ignored," Ahmadinejad said at the ceremony.

    At the Iranian Atomic Organization in Tehran, Ahmadinejad witnessed the insertion of the country's first domestically made nuclear fuel rods into a medical reactor.

    Also present at the Tehran ceremony were Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi and nuclear chief Mohammad Abbasi.

    The president then opened, via a video conference link, two other projects in the Natanz plant in central Iran.

    That plant will now be able to enrich uranium to 20 percent and will also use a new type of centrifuge, capable of three times higher enrichment speeds than previous models.


    OK, I think Iran is just flamebaiting at this point.
