Specifically, what they’re bragging about now is their latest claim to have three thousand uranium enrichment centrifuges. 

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says his nation now has 3,000 uranium
enrichment centrifuges.  The enrichment process can be used to produce fuel for
nuclear reactors or material for nuclear warheads.

Now I know that they’re still selling the same old line about how they are only developing nuclear capability to build power plants… They’re not trying to build weapons.. yadda, yadda.

The problem is that A), they’ve come right out and said in the past that they wanted Israel blown off the map and B), there’s plenty of folks over that way that would like to see the US attacked with nuclear weapons as well.

Think about it.. If all they’re really interested in is power plants then I can’t see where they need three thousand enrichment centrifuges.  The fact that they have that many tells me that they’re gearing up to produce quite a bit of enriched uranium… a lot more than they’d need for power plants but enough to build a decent sized arsenal of nukes.
