A Daily Briefing of Major News Stories on Iran:

Iran is six months from being able to build the bomb? The Israeli’s think so.

What's up with the unmanned aircraft attack rumors?

Here are a few of items you may have missed.

  • Iran and Syria announced they are building a “common front” to deal with the US. This is actually a PR stunt as this is nothing new. They simply reaffirmed previous agreements. The NY Sun wrote an excellent piece on this as well.
  • Amir Taheri makes the case that Syria was responsible for the murder of Rafik Hariri, the former Lebanese prime minister.
  • The Germans and the Iranians met again and said nothing new… big surprise.
  • Iran has begun mining uranium ore for a new facility.
  • Porter Goss weighed in yesterday on the present threat posed by Iran and Al Qaeda. My friends tell me to expect a major story on the Iran/Al Qaeda connection soon.
  • What’s up with Halliburton? New deals with Iran?
  • Congress appears to be getting serious regarding its Iran legislation. They are moving in the right direction. We need to write them and encourage this.
  • Maureen Dowd, of the NY Times doesn’t get that Iran is a totalitarian state and this is driving Iranian expatriates crazy. Good piece.
  • IAEA is still checkinginto how Iran obtain equipment for its nuclear program, but appears to be preparing to give them a clean bill of health on allegations that Iran has a nuclear weapons program.
  • Mullahs punish an entire town for protests, no gas to warm their homes.
  • Iranian readers, you may want to check out Bloggers Without Borders. They claim to have a program to help you get past the filters blocking your content.

What is Ethiopia up to, they must lack something:

IRAN STRENGTHENS PRESENCE IN HORN OF AFRICA.
Sudan's ambassador to Tehran, Hamid al-Tani, said President Umar al-Bashir will visit Tehran in the next few days, "Al-Anba" newspaper reported on 16 February.

Do we see similarities between N.Korea and Iran?

They both had Train Explosions, Underground blasts and now one of these countries, North Korea, declares they have A-Bomb.

Will we hear the same thing from Iranian Mullahs later?

Does North Koreans test their bombs in Iran?
