In an obvious attempt to keep President Barack Obama in power, Iranian dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has announced two days before the election that the country is “suspending” 20% uranium enrichment. Al Arabiya reported the news. Iran says that the suspension is a “good will” gesture.
This move comes a month after Iran told the foreign press that if the West acknowledged its right to nuclear weapons, it would limit its enrichment. Of course, Iran has made promises to the international community before – and it has broken virtually all of them.
UPDATE: An Iranian MP has now quietly rejected all reports that Iran will suspend its uranium enrichment.
