Iran continues...

...to pump up the "nuclear jam."

-- TEHRAN -- A top Iranian official say the country now has 4,000 working nuclear centrifuges.

Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Reza Sheik Attar made the claim to Iranian state media Friday, saying another 3,000 centrifuges will soon be installed at Iran's main nuclear site in Natanz.
And, altruists that they are, the mad mullahs are more than willing to share the love.
Iran said Thursday it had agreed to share nuclear technology with Nigeria to help the African nation produce more energy.

RELATED: So where is Team Obama on this?
Michael Rubin, a lecturer at the Naval Postgraduate School, published an article in The Washington Post on Tuesday in which he surveys Biden's statements and positions concerning Iran.

From his survey it emerges that for more than a decade now Biden's attitude toward the Islamic Republic has been soft and conciliatory.

It is no wonder that the senator and soon to be Democratic candidate for the vice presidency is the favorite senior American politician of the regime in Tehran.

Ayatollah Mohammed Kashani, who is close to the spiritual leader Ali Khamenei, praised Biden for his opposition to the military option and said, in a sermon in Tehran in December 2007, "The senator said rightly that Israel was not able to suppress Hezbollah in Lebanon, so how can the United States deal face to face with a nation of 70 million?"

As is the custom, the cleric's words were greeted by his audience with cries of "Death to America."
