Iran brews nukes, president stuck in Iraq quagmire

TEHRAN, Iran Shouting "Death to America!" Iran's parliament unanimously approved the outlines of a bill that requires the government to resume uranium enrichment.
The country has come under increased scrutiny and criticism for continuing its nuclear program. The U-S says it believes Iran is trying to build a nuclear weapon. Tehran denies the accusation.

Lawmakers say the vote is a clear message "that the parliament won't give in to coercion."

A date for discussing details of the bill will be discussed later.

Iran repeatedly has rejected a long-term suspension of all uranium enrichment-related activities being sought by the international community. Iranian nuclear negotiators have been meeting with officials from Britain, France and Germany, but a second round of talks ended last week without agreement.
