Note that Iran will only actually allow IAEA inspectors to view video tape of what's going on in the nuclear bomb making facilities.
I mean how effing lame is the West?
Unfucking believable!
Oh well. In a few months the Mullahs will have their nuclear bomb and then they can blackmail the entire Middle East including the KSA.
Should be good for a laugh.

Iran says warships sailing towards U.S.: agency
- An Iranian naval officer said a number of warships had been ordered to approach U.S. maritime borders as a response to the stationing of U.S. vessels in the Gulf, the semi-official Fars news agency reported on Saturday.
"Iran's military fleet is approaching the United States' maritime borders, and this move has a message," the agency quoted Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad as saying. Haddad, described as commander of the Iranian navy's northern fleet, said the vessels had started their voyage towards the Atlantic Ocean via "waters near South Africa", Fars reported. Fars said the plan was part of "Iran's response to Washington's beefed up naval presence in the Persian Gulf." The Fars report, which carried no details of the vessels, could not be confirmed independently.

In Washington, a U.S. defense official, speaking on condition of anonymity, cast doubt on any claims that the Iranian ships were approaching U.S. maritime borders. But the official added that "ships are free to operate in international waters." The United States and its allies regularly stage naval exercises in the Gulf, saying they want to ensure freedom of navigation in the waterway through which 40 percent of the world's seaborne oil exports passes. U.S. military facilities in the region include a base for its Fifth Fleet in the Gulf Arab kingdom of Bahrain.

Iran sees the Gulf as its own backyard and believes it has a legitimate interest in expanding its influence there. Iranian officials have often said Iran could block the Strait of Hormuz, at the mouth of the Gulf, if it came under military attack over its disputed nuclear program, and the Western war games are seen in the region as an attempt to deter any such move. Fars said the Iranian navy had been developing its presence in international waters since 2010, regularly launching vessels in the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Aden to protect Iranian ships from Somali pirates operating in the area.

Iran sending warships close to US borders
8 Feb.`14 — A senior Iranian naval commander says his country has sent several warships to the Atlantic Ocean, close to U.S. maritime borders for the first time.
The commander of Iran's Northern Navy Fleet, Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad, is quoted by the official IRNA news agency as saying Saturday that the vessels have already begun the journey to the Atlantic Ocean via waters near South Africa.

Iranian officials said last month that the fleet consisted of a destroyer and a logistic helicopter carrier, which will be on a three-month mission.

Haddad says the fleet is approaching U.S. maritime borders for the first time. The Islamic Republic considers the move as a response to U.S. naval deployments near its own coastlines. The U.S. Navy's 5th fleet is based in nearby Bahrain.

Sanctions make Iran play nice...

UN: IRAN CUTS URANIUM CLOSEST TO NUKE-ARMS GRADE
May 23,`14 -- Iran has neutralized most of its stockpile of higher-enriched uranium that could be turned quickly into the core of a nuclear weapon, the U.N. nuclear agency said Friday, leaving the country with only about a fifth of what it would need for such a purpose.
The International Atomic Energy Agency said in a confidential report that Iran now has less than 40 kilograms (90 pounds) of the material. The report, obtained by The Associated Press, said Tehran also was meeting all other obligations under the agreement, reached four months ago as a prelude to a comprehensive deal now being negotiated.

Iran denies any interest in having atomic arms. But it is ending some nuclear activities and limiting others under a first-step plan implemented in January that gives it some sanctions relief in return for the concessions. As part of the deal, Iran agreed to dilute or convert all of its stock of uranium enriched to 20 percent. At that level, uranium is only a technical step away from use as the core of a nuclear warhead. Iran had produced almost enough 20-percent material for such a weapon until it stopped in January and started transforming what it had.

The agency was less positive in its assessment of Iran's cooperation with IAEA attempts to probe suspicions - denied by Tehran - that it worked secretly on nuclear weapons development. Iran, it said, was engaging on the issue "for the first time ... since 2008," by providing documents on the use of detonators that the agency suspects were part of experiments on setting off a nuclear charge. But the agency said Iran continues to assert that its tests were for civilian use in its documentation.

Ridiculous lack of knowledge on the subject matter or foreign policy.

It will only end in WWIII if we overreact to the issue or to an issue that doesn't exist because Iran is a Russian proxy to a large extent. Iran is really not even in play after the Syria front backfired in Mr. Heinz Ketchup's face.
