IAEA Report Confirms Iran's Peaceful Nuclear Program
No evidence suggests Iran's nuclear program isn't legal and peaceful.

It's no surprise. It's been that way for years. Iran's legally entitled to enrich uranium. Dozens of other countries do the same thing.
Tehran alone is criticized. Managed news misinformation begets more of it. Washington, Israel, and European partner collaborators repeat it ad nauseam.
They lie. They know they're lying. They repeat what they know is false. Media scoundrels regurgitate it. Doing so makes them complicit.
Americans are the least informed, most entertained people anywhere. They're mindless about what matters most.
Propaganda works. A new Gallup poll explains. It found 99% of Americans believe Iran's nuclear program threatens US security. Its nonexistent nukes are considered more dangerous than nations with real ones.
Previous polls called Iran America's top enemy. China ranked second.
Paul Craig Roberts calls thinking America's "national disability." Indifference lets Washington get away with murder and much more.
Iran fully complies with Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) provisions. Its nuclear program is peaceful. US intelligence says so. Annually it repeats earlier assessments.
On February 6, the IAEA said Iran began installing IR-2m centrifuges. It's entitled to do so. It's doing it at Natanz. It's Tehran's main uranium enrichment facility.
"This is the first time that centrifuges more advanced that IR-1 have been installed," it said.
Ali Asghar Soltananieh is Tehran's IAEA ambassador. Iran's program is entirely peaceful, he stressed.
<blockquote>" The most important point of the report is that after a decade of continuous inspections by the agency, there is no evidence on divergence toward military purposes in Iran's nuclear material and activities," he added.
"The agency says that (uranium) enrichment is continuing in Iran without any problem and under (its) full supervision."
