Iran, The Elephant In The Room

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is still stonewalling IAEA inspectors. This is nothing new. In fact, there has been zero progress for months.

“Iran so far has not been forthcoming in replying to our questions, and we seem to be at a dead end there,” said a senior UN official on Monday.

With the exception of Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and Castro in Cuba, everyone is in agreement that Iran needs to stop its uranium enrichment process, a process that is not needed for electrical power generation. It is a process that is only needed to produce a nuclear bomb. In spite of the unanimity in opinion, where is the unanimity in the will to do something about it? Negotiations do have and ending point where the problem is either solved one way, or solved another way. Ahmadinejad is one hemorrhoid that is in need of some Preparation H.

  1. Iran has every right to have nuclear generated electricity. It is the most effecient way to produce it. However, Ahmadinejad has everything to do with enriching uranium.

    It is Ahmadinejad that has locked the inspectors out of areas critical to their job of VERIFICATION, which is why there is ‘no evidence.’ There is only evidence of him not cooperating with his agreed upon obligation to the international community.

    It is Ahmadinejad who is behaving like he has something to hide. His former neighbor ended up hanging from a rope for his bluff. Is that what he wants?

    In this case, the media has nothing to do with it.

  2. Brazil and Argentina also have nuclear enrichment, and have been less forthcoming with the IAEA than Iran. Are they making bombs too? Ahmadinejad has nothing to do with this. Iran’s nuclear program started under the Shah with the encouragement and support of teh USA because it makes economic sense, and they have every right to enrich uranium.

    The same IAEA report also says that Iran’s nuclear program is under safeguards and produces only low-enriched uranium that cannot be used to make bombs, and that the IAEA doesn’t have any evidence itself to back up the allegations against Iran either. Read the report itself, don’t believe what the media claims about it.
