Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of Iran's parliament`s national security and foreign policy committee, already said
"Fordow will never be shut down because ... our national duty is to be able to defend our nuclear and vital centers against an enemy threat... This suggestion (shutting down Fordow) is meant to help the Zionist regime."

@furryblob: Right, Iran only wants enrichment for energy ambitions, sure. And they are willing to go to war over it, oh I get it.
You don't need weaponized plutonium for a nuclear reactor. The pressurized heavy water reactor can use unenriched uranium and can permit refueling without shutdowns, the Canadians have their own similar designs as well. But I sure the Iranians just haven`t realized that yet, eh?
Espeshally when Iran has the world`s second largest reserves of oil. Or if they wanted to be Earth-friendly they also have the world`s second largest reserves of natural gas and multiple thermal energy plants and hydro-electric plants like Karun-3 Dam commissioned in 2006. Iran`s unique geographical position also means 90% of the country has enough sun to generate solar power 300 days a year.
Yea they really need 3,000 centrifuges for enriching uranium for nuclear power, and it has nothing to do with the US and Israel. Don`t blow rainbows up my ass.

@Gerry1of1: I like you man, but they didn't win. The Chinese had to fight for them or else we would have won in less then a year. And as far as the Chinese were concerned, Peng Dehuai China`s prominent military leader and later Defense Minister was quoted as saying "You should go to the front and see with your own eyes what food and clothing the soldiers have! Not to speak of the casualties! For what are they giving their lives? We have no aircraft. We have only a few guns. Transports are not protected. More and more soldiers are dying of starvation." The Armistice was crated by India and it was accepted by the UN. Dwight D. Eisenhower was newly elected, wanted to legitimize the newly formed 10 year old UN so it didn`t end up like the league of nations, and because for the most part American`s were war fatigued from ww2, didn`t want to invest the money, and really didn`t care about Korea, and it didn`t help him politically, hence why it was called "the forgotten war
