Detailed reporting on the remarks themselves, with good context on how they're being used in advance of the UN talks.

This LA Times story filed by Ramin Mostaghim, Tehran-based Time staff writer, sourced the news from Tehran TV quoting the country's atomic energy chief. The report got 211 facebook share, 103 tweets, 2 diggs, and has a rating of 4.11 from 18 readers of LAT. But I think, the story title is confusing, and the story lacks depth. It only told what Iran has to say.

The format in which the article is written, as well as the dry way it reads, make this story unappealing. It is redeemed by its content, which is in-depth and which many people would want to know.

Iran's domestic nuclear power programme is hardly part of an effort to make Iran a "world power", and in any event Iran's defense budget is half that of Israel, and one-quater that of Saudi Arabia, and only 1% that of the US.

The CIA has no intelligence Iran's government wants nuclear weapons. The US foolishly blocked Iran's IAEA application last year to refuel the research reactor in Tehran. That application should be approved!

strong lead, good sources for the information cited. It meanders a bit IMO towards the end but still finishes strong.
