Iran Decides It Has Enough for Nukes

In a widely-praised announcement, Iran acknowledged that it now had enough enriched uranium to build all the bombs it needs:

"Iran's foreign ministry says the country will suspend its disputed uranium enrichment program in coming days in line with demands from United Nations nuclear weapons inspectors."
The announcement serves two purposes:
1) It gives Iran the figleaf of UN compliance without having to comply.
2)It gives it insulation against UN inspections of nuclear weapons programs for at least long enough to build a few bombs.

The event was heralded at a "victory for diplomacy."

How many developers have come up with great functional ideas from working with their interface or looking at their competitors'? Start working on your Aqua compliance from day one.
