A top Iranian official says Iran will launch a second uranium enrichment center later this month. The new center was built below ground and is well protected from possible air attacks by countries opposed to Iran's nuclear program. The head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization said late Saturday that uranium gas will be injected into centrifuges at the Fordo Enrichment Center before February 1st. Iran reported the existence of the center to the United Nations Nuclear Agency in 2009. It is under a mountain near the Shi'ite holy city of Qom. The American Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says Iran does not now have the ability to build a nuclear bomb. But, he said if it does, the United States will intervene.

My thought/opinion on this issue
Relationship between two countries has become worse day by day. I wonder if ordinary people in both countries hope the worst situation.

As an ordinary US person, I hope we're done with foreign wars for a while, so we can focus on urgencies here. I do think I see Iran's point of view—I wouldn't want the international community telling me what to do, either—but I also see that the nuclear question may be too big to trust to an unstable regime. でも、bikenglishさんの翻音はパーフェクトだと思います。

Thank you for a comment. The relationship between both countries has been worse day by day. Japan's economic would be affected by it.
