In addition to the financial and technological assistance from the United States, France and Germany signed several agreements with the Shah to provide Iran with enriched uranium, nuclear reactors and research centers. However, following the 1979 Revolution, Ayatollah Khomeini immediately suspended construction indefinitely at all nuclear facilities in the "Islamic State" because as aforementioned, fundamental Islamic religious and jurisprudential beliefs consider all weapons of mass destruction as immoral.1
The IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) has found nothing that indicates that Iran is attempting to acquire nuclear weapons.2 George W. Bush has said he won't allow Iran to acquire even "the knowledge" of how to build nuclear weapons. That's a ridiculous threshold designed as an excuse to bomb Iran back decades if possible. The same lies and distortions and half-truths that the US government (Bush/Cheney and the neocons) used against Iraq are being used against Iran. Meanwhile, Cheney reminds the world that "all options are still on the table,''3 meaning Bush and he will bomb Iran with nuclear weapons if Iran doesn't knuckle under to the kleptomaniacs running this satanic world.
