The Associated Press reports that, according to Iranian state TV, the mullahs have "stepped up" nuclear operations "after years of delay."
The other worrisome news? The relationship between the Iranians and Russians. The AP reports:
Senior Iranian and Russian officials attended celebrations Monday for the official launch of the 1000-megawatt Bushehr plant in southern Iran.
It began to generate between 350 to 400 megawatts of electricity, equal to 35 to 40 percent of the reactor's full capacity.
The Russian-built plant was connected to the national power grid for a test run Sept. 4, generating 60 megawatts.
