U.S.worried by Iran nuclear muscle
by UPI

TEHRAN - Iran's announcement that it can now produce nuclear fuel on "an industrial scale" has U.S. officials on edge.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Monday that his country had "joined the nuclear club of nations," the BBC reported. While he did not reveal any figures by which to gauge Iran's capabilities, a British official called the announcement "a further breach" of International Atomic Energy Agency and United Nations resolutions.

In the United States, a Bush administration official said Iran is continuing to defy the international community and is further isolating itself by expanding its nuclear program.

"We are very concerned about Iran's announcement that they entered an 'industrial state' of nuclear fuel production," said Gordon Johndroe, a spokesman for the White House's National Security Council.

The Natanz plant is thought to have room for 50,000 centrifuges that Iranian leaders maintain they will use only for peaceful purposes but which the United States and other nations fear will be put to military uses.
