"Nuclear technology is our absolute right. Death to America, Britain, Germany and France."

Hundreds of Iranians gathered at two facilities today to protest the demands of the IAEA and to condemn insults to Iranian independence. It looks like some Iranians have fetishized nuclear power as a national symbol, just like in Pakistan, where models of nuclear missiles decorate public squares and parks.

They actually formed a human chain around a nuclear plant still under construction. A lovely scene.
