Iranian leaders boasted Saturday that their rogue nation is set to unveil a series of “major” nuclear achievements — potentially dangerous developments that could lead to a showdown with Israel and the West. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, speaking at the country’s annual “Revolution Day” festival, did not offer details about his nation’s alleged accomplishments — but his chilling words will have global impact. “Today you see that the Iranian nation has become nuclear and can supply many of its demands,” Ahmadinejad said in an address broadcast on state television. “And God willing, in next few days,” he said, “the whole world will witness the inauguration of several major achievements in the nuclear domain.” Tehran has long insisted that Iran is only developing an atomic program to meet the country’s energy needs and has steadfastly refused to stop its scientists’ work.Please Hammer, don’t hurt us!!! All jokes aside, this guy is scary as fawk. We’re shopping for a bomb shelter on eBay right now!!! SourceBut the United States and its allies believe the energy program is a cover for Iran to develop nuclear bombs. If Iran were to develop weapons, it would immediately put Israel on red alert. Ahmadinejad, a Holocaust denier, has long insisted that the Jewish state does not have the right to exist — and Israel leaders fear they could come under attack. That terrifying proposition could lead to talk of a preemptive strike against Iran by Israel, which could lead the Middle East down to the road to an unthinkable conflict. Several rounds of United Nations sanctions and tough international financial penalties have failed to stop Iran, which has dug in its heels and refused to abandon the atomic program. Ahmadinejad and his advisors have claimed that Iran was able to manufacture its own nuclear fuel rods, which supply energy for reactors, since a U.N. ruling prohibits the renegade country from buying them on foreign markets. Last month, Iran boasted that it created its first fuel rod and claims that it will open up a Russian-built nuclear power plant in the southern port of Bushehr later this year. While revealing the development of the fuel rod, Iranian official signaled a willingness to negotiate with the West, a stance Ahmadinejad reiterated Saturday — with conditions. “Iran is ready for talks within the framework of equality and justice,” Ahmadinejad said, speaking at a rally that marked the 33rd anniversary of the overthrow of a pro-West democracy by radical clerics. But Ahmadinejad, who posed with a replica of a U.S. drone that Iran claims to have captured last year, warned that Tehran “will never enter talks if enemies behave arrogantly.” Israeli officials have argued that the international sanctions against Iran are not working and are instead giving Tehran more time to develop its nuclear program. The United States and its allies have pleaded for patience, believing that the international oil embargo — which has taken away nearly 80% of Iran’s revenue — will eventually force Tehran to cave.
