Nuke agency says Iran can make bomb (IRAN CAN BUILD THE BOMB...thumb twiddling continues)

VIENNA – Iran experts at the U.N nuclear monitoring agency believe Tehran has the ability to make a nuclear bomb and worked on developing a missile system that can carry an atomic warhead, according to a confidential report seen by The Associated Press.

The document drafted by senior officials at the International Atomic Energy Agency is the clearest indication yet that those officials share Washington's views on Iran's weapon-making capabilities and missile technology — even if they have not made those views public.

The document, titled "Possible Military Dimension of Iran's Nuclear Program," appeared to be the so-called IAEA "secret annex" on Iran's alleged nuclear arms program that the U.S., France, Israel and other IAEA members say is being withheld by agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei — claims the nuclear watchdog denies.

It is a record of IAEA findings since the agency began probing Iran's nuclear program in 2007 and has been continuously updated.

The information in the document that is either new, more detailed or represents a more forthright conclusion than found in published IAEA reports includes:

• The IAEA's assessment that Iran worked on developing a chamber inside a ballistic missile capable of housing a warhead payload "that is quite likely to be nuclear."

For more than 5 years, the world has twiddled its thumbs. For how much longer?

Until we see a mushroom cloud?

Between rampant nuclear insecurity, proliferation, financial waste, corruption across most of the Third World — despite billions of dollars and empty talk over decades — the post-WWII financial and security arrangements (embodied in the institutions of the UN, World Bank, IMF, etc.) have all failed on a massive, catastrophic scale.

Oh, I forgot NATO. It might well as not exist as far as much of Eastern Europe is concerned, as many Eastern Europeans have found out today.

May 18, 2008: Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, these countries are tiny compared to the Soviet Union. They don't pose a serious threat to us. ...they spend 1/100th of what we spend on the military. I mean, if Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn't stand a chance.


May 20, 2008 (2 days later!): Iran is a grave threat. It has an illicit nuclear program. It supports terrorism across the regions and militias in Iraq. It threatens Israel's existence. It denies the Holocaust.

The idiot Biden even said they have no potential to harm us. He either doesn't know or is lying- they sent a satellite into space. If one can do that, one can build and fire an ICBM. Iran says it has launched its first domestically made satellite into orbit. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the launch had been successful and that with it Iran had "officially achieved a presence in space". The satellite, carried on a Safir-2 rocket, was meant for telecommunication and research purposes, state TV said. A US state department official said the launch was of "great concern" and could lead to ballistic missile development. Iran insists its intent is peaceful. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7866357.stm

You have no idea how effective thumb twiddling can be if done properly.

Jimma' Carter had it down to a tee and was VERY effective as POTUS.

I'm guessing that our Capitulator-in-Chief has delayed, through threat, a viable Israeli solution to the point where it's now a bridge too far.

Next will come a media blizzard from the White House that Iran's demands to disarm Israel's nuclear capability are reasonable.

The American people will remember Iran’s capture of our diplomats under Carter and their hatred for us ever since. They will also remember that Israel has been our ally in the region. This is a losing battle for the Administration in my opinion.

For the first time in my adult life I'm questioning my minority responsibilities in a democratic republic. I am close to concluding that Obama is not my president.
