Defiant president says country can make nuclear fuel on ‘industrial scale’
The Iranian President Mahmoud Adhmadinejad said Monday that Iran was now capable of making nuclear fuel on an 'industrial scale'. This expansion on their nuclear program the United Nations insists that they must halt. This announcements suggests that Iran has a larger number of centrifuges at its Natanz enrichment facility in Central Iran than was expected.
When Iran was asked if it had begun injecting uranium gas into their 3,000 centrifuges for enrichment they said "yes." Though, he gave no specific details.

Iran has been flaunting that they are not fallowing the international communities guidelines by making comments like "The understanding regards assuring the other party about the peacefulness of Iran's nuclear activities," he said. "But we do not give in our rights."
Iran has even started a ‘National day of nuclear energy’ In Iran the government sent out millions of text messages to people and celebrated in schools. In one school over 200 students formed a human chain and chanted "death to America" and "death to Britain." while students burnt American and British flag's
