    I thought they were farther ahead than 'at the end of the decade.' Guess I've been reading stuff wrong. Then there is time.

    Kathianne, the Russians recently completed a different Iranian reactor for which they have agreed to sell fuel to the Mullahs.

    The fuel that Russia is willing to sell to Iran can be enriched to create nukes: http://www.globalsecurity.org/wmd/intro/u-centrifuge.htm

    The "research" reactor mentioned in the first post of this thread http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml?type=worldNews&storyID=7802209 , whose construction just started, will produce enough fissile material to make at least one Plutonium nuke per year.
