Update: Russia: Iran Bushehr nuke plant likely running by August 06/27/11 It is coming down to the wire with Iran's nuclear reactor. How long will Israel allow Iran to use the reactor before Israel attempts to destroy it? This reactor sits on top of powerful earthquake zone, so maybe the Holy God of Israel will destroy it with an earthquake.Something has to happen quickly with this reactor.
"Iran's Russian-built nuclear power plant is likely to become fully operational in early August, Russian news agencies quoted a senior diplomat as saying on Monday. Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said the plant, which Russia has built near the Persian Gulf city of Bushehr in a $1 billion deal dating back to the 1990s, is finished and can begin providing electricity soon, state-run RIA reported."
