Iran: No New Centrifuges Since May

According to Reuters, Iran has installed no new centrifuges at its Natanz enrichment plant since May.

I've been concerned that those in Iran who might like a bomb would have taken the unrest surrounding the election on June 12 as an opportunity to push ahead more quickly toward their goal. But it looks like the opposite happened, that the moderates slowed things down and maintained control of the program during the street protests.

Those protests were far from Natanz, of course, so business most likely continued as usual, which apparently is not a run toward a bomb.
