Video: Iran starts firing up Bushehr

Here's a report put out by London's Daily Telegraph featuring video from Iranian television.

Let's go to the videotape (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).

Note this from the report that accompanies the video:
Iran is suspected of wanting to build nuclear weapons. Successfully operating a nuclear reactor will be seen by many in the Middle East and wider afield as a significant step forward for its nuclear industry towards that goal.

Israel has often warned that it cannot live with a nuclear-armed Iran, and there are still fears that Israel could launch a pre-emptive military strike on Iran which could ignite war across the Middle East, although bombing an operative reactor could release deadly radioactivity.

Gary Samore, President Obama's adviser on nuclear issues, tried to ease tensions among Israeli officials by telling the New York Times that the process of converting nuclear material into a weapon that worked would take at least 12 months.

Israeli officials have expressed disappointment that diplomacy failed to stop the plant, and have warned about their concerns at the development.
I still believe that Israel will launch a strike against Iran. At the proper time. As bad as Bushehr is, it doesn't have to be the point of no return. But I don't think most Israelis believe we have another year. There are too many other things going on in Iran.
