    From the story "why else it would be racing to enrich fuel for non-existent power stations" The premise is false. The Bushehr reactor is real, it exists. It is near completion. The fuel must be on site 6 months before the reactor can be put into full operation. That means enrichment must begin long before that so that it can be made into fuel rods. Any implication that Iran doesn't need to enrich uranium until after Bushehr is already running just isn't supported by the facts. Russia has already failed to meet their fuel delivery dates. The first deliveries should have began last spring. With that record of reliability, Iran would be fools not to strive for energy independence instead of relying upon outsiders who have failed to deliver in the past (for whatever reason). The only people falling for this sort of rhetoric are those people who have set their minds for war and really don't want to hear the truth.
