AP gets image of Iranian explosives containment chamber

The Associated Press has obtained an image of an explosives containment chamber, used to test nuclear weapons, from Iran. An IAEA inspector has confirmed the image's authenticity.
The image was provided to The Associated Press by an official of a country tracking Iran's nuclear program who said the drawing proves the structure exists, despite Tehran's refusal to acknowledge it.

The official said he could not discuss the drawing's origins beyond that it was based on information from a person who had seen the chamber at the Parchin military site, adding that going into detail would endanger the life of that informant.

His country, a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, is severely critical of Iran's assertions that its nuclear activities are peaceful and asserts they are a springboard for making atomic arms.

A former senior IAEA official said he believes the drawing is accurate. Olli Heinonen, until last year the UN nuclear agency's deputy director general in charge of the Iran file, said it was "very similar" to a photo he recently saw that he believes to be the pressure chamber the IAEA suspects is at Parchin. He said even the colors of the drawing matched that of the photo.
The Iranians had no comment on the image.

How much longer are we going to continue to pretend that Iran is not developing nuclear weapons?

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck."

Iran's oil reserves are the third largest in the world at approximately 150 billion barrels--about 10% of the planet's total proven petroleum reserves. Iran is the world's fourth largest oil producer and OPEC's second-largest producer after Saudi Arabia. Notwithstanding its incredible oil and gas resources, Iran is developing nuclear energy--at great economic and political costs. What's wrong with this picture?

There's no need for Nuclear energy !!
