Drudge has a big red headline: Iran Says Nuke Program is Nearly Complete.
From the article:
Iran has been locked in a standoff with the West over its nuclear program. The United States and its European allies have been seeking a U.N. Security Council resolution imposing sanctions on Tehran for refusing to suspend uranium enrichment.
“Initially, they (the U.S. and its allies) were very angry. The reason was clear: They basically wanted to monopolize nuclear power in order to rule the world and impose their will on nations,” Ahmadinejad told a news conference.
Ahmadinejad said immediately afterwards, “They think we’re gozno nutso and we may nuke people because they don’t conform to Sharia law. Well, he’s right, don’tcha know!” (*= may have been a Loony Tunes episode.)
Later in the article:
The Bush administration, frustrated by U.N. Security Council inaction on sanctions against Iran, is pressing a new agenda _ trying to deny Tehran U.N. aid for a plutonium-producing reactor that could be used to make nuclear warheads.
Man, Bush is such an imperialist warmonger for not wanting Iran to have nuclear weapons. I swear. He’s the Bu$$$hitler and only wants Haliburton to make nuclear weapons for Iran.
Remember the outcry from the Left? “You let North Korea have nuclear weapons!” Now Iran is on the same path and I’m sure we’ll hear the same thing. So let me post these reminders here so I can pull them out at any time:
Gary Hart. The Nation (complete with “hawkish Republicans overestimating Iranian nuclear capabilities). Contested Terrain. And this little piece that makes me all warm & fuzzy inside.
Now Iran’s walking around with U-235 and wondering aloud, “What shall we do with all of this enriched radioactive material? We can only make so much for a reactor…”
Oh, but Israel has nothing to fear from Iran, right?
The relatively good news is that acquiring a bomb and being able to place it on a missile are two different things. If Iran tests a nuke, you can be assured that Iran is going to get some Israeli nuclear tests done on its soil.
