    "They (Iran) are within their rights to make nuclear fuel for their reactors. They are abiding by the NPT and are completely legal." - Lou Medel Yes, and no. Iran tried to get into Uranium enrichment on the cheap. It bought technology and centrifuges on the black market from Pakistan via A.Q. Khan's network of violations. This was latched upon by the Bush junta and Israel to justify Bush starting a war. Instead all they managed to achieve was a UNSC resolution that Iran stop enrichment. Thus Iran must have those resolutions repealed and reenter the Additional Protocols before it is entirely back under the NPT. No matter how despicable and damaging the actions of the Bush Junta were, especially the threats of attack that caused Iran to withdraw from the Additional Protocols, the fact is that it is the responsibility of Iran to restore the confidence of the world.
