    The most effective way to become resistant to US intervention is to become a nuclear power. You don’t even have to make nuclear weapons, so hopefully they do actually create effective nuclear power plants.

        countries that are not that particular stable, are more or less dictatorships and most certainly have designs on nuclear weapons.

        So… The west and allies?!

        Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Syria, hell even Jordon might.

        Oh man! We really can’t be having these uncivilized countries having nuclear power. They might do the same horrors we commit! Could you imagine? Well it’ll probably be hard to match us, but still!

        Is dumb to think they won’t

        Right? If the west does it, why wouldn’t they?

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran began construction on four more nuclear power plants in the country’s south, with expected total capacity of 5,000 megawatts, the official IRNA news agency reported Thursday.

    The UN’s nuclear watchdog said last year that Iran has increased the rate at which it is producing near-weapons grade uranium.

    Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi said in the report that Iran “in recent weeks had increased its production of highly enriched uranium, reversing a previous output reduction from mid-2023,” according to an IAEA spokesperson.

    Iran had previously slowed the rate at which it was enriching uranium to 60% purity, which is just a short technical step away from the weapons-grade level of 90%.

    IRNA quoted Mohammad Eslami, the head of Iran’s atomic agency, saying it will take up to nine years to complete the new plants.

    The report said the four new plants are being built in the port town of Sirik on Iran’s east coast, some 1,150 kilometers (715 miles) south of the capital, Tehran.
