"Mohammed ElBaradei suggested a compromise on the Iranian nuclear issue, allowing Iran to conduct small-scale enrichment work. "

What a frickin moron! If that door gets cracked open, it'll be swung wide open in no time.

BTW, they only need enough unranium for 1 or 2 nukes to start WW3.

Here's another Iranian story you can add to your list: Students in Tehran recruited for suicide bombings (1000 suicide bombers drafted against Israel)


Students in Tehran recruited for suicide bombings

Israel television news showed images Sunday night of an auditorium filled with well-dressed students at the University of Tehran.

This was no ordinary lecture. Upon signing up for the course, students were asked to choose against whom they would most like to carry out a suicide bombing. Among the choices were Israel, Americans in Iraq, and Salman Rushdie, who has an Iranian death sentence on his head for the publication of his book The Satanic Verses.

The students were shown a videos as incitement, including a mob burning a Danish flag, Palestinians clashing with the IDF, and footage from the war in Iraq.

On the stage was a sign in English, Hebrew and Persian. The text in all languages said the same thing: "Israel must be wiped off the map."

A student leader of the organization that set up the recruitment event said that they currently have 1,000 loyal and trained suicide bombers, with another 5,000 on a waiting list.

That is why the Mullah regime must go, sooner than later. This is part of their psychological preparation of the youth and gullible. Has been going on for years now and will continue more intensely if allowed to persist.

The American administration’s earmarking of $75 million to finance opposition in Iran has been interpreted by Iranian Foreign Minister Manucher Mouttaqi as "a waste of money".

Does Iran's Foreign Minister think he's Allen Greenspan? BTTT!
