Iran's nuclear power plant and public statements by Iranian leaders

Iran creates electricity in its nuclear power plant. Iran doesn’t have a nuclear weapon and says it doesn't want one, so claiming “Iran threatened to use a nuclear weapon” doesn't even make sense.

Iran’s leaders have publicly stated they don't want nuclear weapons and have explicitly said they have no intention of starting a war. For example, Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, stated, “We have no problem with the world. We are not a threat whatsoever to the world, and the world knows it. We will never start a war. We have no intention of going to war with any state.” and President Ahmadinejad has said, “The Iranian nation is highly civilized and has a very rich culture and is not after oppressing any other nation, or launching an aggressive attack against anyone.” and “We have said numerous times and say it over and again: we have no atomic bomb, we want no atomic bomb and we need no atomic bomb.” BUT U.S. mass media has extremely UNDERREPORTED what they said to the point where hardly any American knows it.
