Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced that Iran had become a “nuclear state” at the annual celebration in February commemorating Iran’s 1979 revolution. In the last year, Iran has spurned the Obama Administration’s diplomatic engagement efforts, been caught red-handed building another covert uranium enrichment facility, and promised to build ten more in continued defiance of UN Security Council resolutions.
