Amadinejad Claims 'Giant Achievements' Coming On Feb. 11 When 'Nuclear Rights' Will Be Established (Updated)

Topics: Iran

The Iranian news agency reported on Sunday that Iran will make a dramatic announcement on Iran's nuclear "rights" on February 11 during the "Ten-Day Dawn" (the date of the Iranian Islamic revolution in 1979). The report was accompanied by a series of announcements heralding alleged Iranian technological and medical breakthroughs, including an "AIDS cure" they call IMOD.

The herbal-based drug, IMOD, is not a medication to kill the virus, but supposedly can be used besides other anti-retroviral drugs. We can only hope that the Iranians are as bad at developing nuclear weapons as they are at supposed AIDs "cures." Apparently, after five years of research, the drug has been tested on only 200 patients.

As to Iran's nuclear ambitions, haven't they been promising that they have only peaceful intentions? So we shouldn't really be all that concerned about their uranium enrichment plant at Natanz, should we?

Why is it that when I hear Ahmadinejad and other Iranian officials talk about the 'transparency' of Iran's nuclear activities, I'm reminded of a con man beginning a comment with "to be honest with you ...."! Soon, we will all have to come to realize that Iran is "irredeemably unreliable," and will use any diplomacy to play for time. Unfortunately, the day is coming soon that we are going to have no other options than to destroy Iran's nuclear and military facilities.

Update: I can't help but believe that Iran's HIV "cure" is nothing more than an herb or combination acting as an immunopotentiator affecting CD4 count and function through an anti-HIV-1 effect via prevention of the binding of HIV-1 glycoprotein (gp) 120 to the CD4 molecule on T cells. This isn't exactly a novel mechanism and isn't new information, and even the EGCG in green tea has been known to do that and Iran is already hinting at plant derivation.

We can only hope that Iran has actually come up with something truly novel and effective. Apparently IMOD will not kill the HIV virus but will effectively block its spread in the body.

You are searching for iranian nuclear power.
But is there any information what is the nuclear power of US has.
You are thinking US has right to use nuclear weapons "for the world peace" but no other country can.Why is US still killing people in Iraq?Just for money.One day US can kill the world if it can not sell enough coca cola.
First US must declare all of its nuclear facilities correctly.
And even drugs only action is inhibiting gp120 to bind CD4 T cells it must more potent then green tea.And we know that if US does not search a drug if it does not make money.US drug firms is still making alot of money of anti-retroviral drugs and interferon therapy.If some firm finds another drug may be more potent than the old one it keeps secret for the future for the other firm to release it's new drug.
Just like Windows is first released buggy and it releases another version that is not buggy.

Kamil Tas has either been smoking some very funny tobacco or someone has put LSD in his coffee. Otherwise, how can a human being be so confused?

A country if it says i am responsible for justice it will be a very big claim and it has very responsibilities.I cannot see any of this responsibility in US.
Do you think that Bush wants Iraq peace?
Time will all shows who is saying true.

Kamil, Your last comment is correct - and in time you will surely see that the U.S. does want peace, but the world cannot be forced to live under Islam as Ahmadinejad and the mullahs seek.

After all is said and done, it is up to people like you and me, and others, to make our leaders understand that we all need to be tolerant of each other, and respect each other's beliefs - even if we do not agree with them.

You ask if I think that Bush wants Iraq peace? Why do you think the U.S. sent troops there and got rid of Saddam, then let the Iraqis vote for their own government, trained the Iraqi army, and has actually pulled out most of its troops already? The U.S. will stay only as long as the Iraqi government wants them there, and not a day longer.

Yes, I strongly believe that Bush and the American people want peace for Iraq. I also believe that if Iran's regime keeps up its actions and rhetoric, it will most definitely get what it is asking for. It will then find that the U.S. will do as it always has, and use whatever military force is necessary to destroy its enemy's military. And that will indeed happen.

We can all only hope that Iran's regime stops its pursuit of nuclear weapons so that the U.S. will not do whatever is necessary to stop them - and stop them they will.

The U.S. has HUGE military resources that it has not used yet, and a nuclear arsenal of thousands of nuclear weapons. Think about it - all that power and the U.S. has not used it (in over 50 years) because it is a responsible power.

The problem for Iran is that it's regime is not considered responsible and continues to threaten the West. Sooner or later the lion is going to get tired of the threats from the mouse.

In your words, "Time will all shows who is saying true," (who is right).

And also who is the "crazy" one, oh wearer of tin hats.
