New Underground Beneath the Mountain Action at New Site in Natanz
We need to bear in mind that the expatriot, anti Saddam forces in the west mislead us (for their own good reasons),
LONDON — Iran is constructing a bomb-proof underground site for the development of nuclear weapons, opposition sources said.
The National Council of Resistance of Iran said the new underground facility would be used for nuclear weapons production and assembly and was linked to the Natanz uranium enrichment facility.
"Information we have from inside the regime indicates that the site is destined for military nuclear activity, mainly for the further enrichment of uranium," NCRI spokesman Mehdi Abrichamtchi said on Sept. 27.

At a news conference in Paris, the opposition group said Teheran has nearly completed the underground facility, which includes at least two tunnels with entrances of six meters in diameter. NCRI, which disclosed Iran's nuclear program in 2002, said the facility was located five kilometers south of the Natanz plant under the Sia Kooh mountain.
"The site is protected from air strikes," Abrichamtchi said.
Abrichamtchi said the latest nuclear facility would become operational by April 2008. He said his information was based on unidentified sources in Iran.
And a little reminder....
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said it would be irresponsible to take hasty action on Iran's atomic program before the United Nations nuclear watchdog completes its work, the RIA news agency reported.
Iran has dismissed the opposition claim. In a statement read on Iranian television, Teheran denied the existence of a secret nuclear site, and said the opposition report was meant to torpedo the visit of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the United States."These baseless and erroneous accusations are aimed at destroying the positive climate created by Iran's cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency and the president's trip to New York," Ali Larijani, a senior member of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, said.
Should we laugh or cry here?
Am I too cynical?
Too steeped in enmity to see the chance for light?
Or am I not paranoid enough?
