FoxNews had an Iranian "expert" on Brit's show tonight, his last name was Pollack I believe. He holds little faith that the mullahs aren't lying to us and says that they have become adept at hiding their nuke programs for which Israel is very concerned. Then he proceeds to say that UN inspections / sanctioning could be a good deterrant to the mullahs because of the economic conditions there, the dissatisfied youth etc.
What Pollack didn't say was how we could verify how many sites to have the IAEA inspect if the Iranians are so good at hiding them and if they continue to lie about it.
El Baradai has lost every shred of credibility he might have ever had. WHY are we continuing to put trust and our safety in his efforts and the efforts of Europe is beyond me.
I wasn't all that thrilled about Mr. Pollack. He seemed to play down the threat from Iran ever so slightly. Pollack claims that we wouldn't know if Iran was using the centifuges. This contradicts what John Loftus, et.al., had reported (although Loftus says this information should not have been made public, to try spy on Iran abscence their knowledge).
The IAEA and the UN are a total joke.
Something eucouraging - the US put the world on notice tonight that if you continue to do business with Iran, you'll be viewed as a poliferator. That's good, but there's a 0% the UN would hold any such "poliferators" to account, like France, Germany, Russia, China.
The Europeans don't learn their lesson. Trying to repeat World War II. And - the Iraq War II. The same people who did business with Saddam do business with the mullahs in Iran. Anybody want to bet that some money is going to change hands, if it hasn't already?
