Violence feared as security forces threaten to crush protests Internet connections attacked in Tehran as regime tries to foil opposition Iran is now a 'nuclear state', President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced this morning. He spoke as tens of thousands of people took to the streets in Tehran to mark the 31st anniversary of the Islamic revolution. There are fears of violence as opposition and pro-government supporters are expected to meet at rallies in a show of popular strength unmatched since the revolution itself. Today Ahmadinejad told scores of cheering Iranians that the Islamic Republic is capable of producing weapons-grade uranium.

He said it had produced its first batch of 20 per cent enriched uranium - and had the capability to enrich to far higher levels at its Natanz plant. Enriching uranium produces fuel for a nuclear power plants but can also be used to create material for atomic weapons. The international community has warned Iran against further enrichment activities, threatening new UN sanctions.

But this can’t be true. The MSM said repeatedly that he wasn’t developing nuclear weapons ... only nuclear energy.
Obama needs to send Irans Revolutionary Guard a sternly worded letter of protest hand delivered via Fed Ex, registered mail return receipt requested.
That will show the Iranians we mean business. No more Mr. Nice Guy.
I wonder if the NYT will print a retraction for this article now....
I just feel so, so . . . . punched.
It lacks punch.
As if we didn’t see this coming. Nuclear proliferation control is like gun control - only those that don’t want it won’t get it.
All the posturing by America and other countries will not stop a country from getting it.
Russia's Medvedev hails "comrade" Obama
Associated Foreign Press (AFP) ^ | April 2, 2009 | Anna Smolchenko
"Russia's Dmitry Medvedev hailed Barack Obama as "my new comrade" Thursday after their first face-to-face talks"
April 1, 2009:
"Obama, Medvedev pledge new era of relations":
Obama, Chavez shake hands at Americas Summit:
He’ll send an email. All in CAPS this time....
From CBS-News, July 29, 2006:
Chavez Vows To 'Stand By Iran'
After Oil Talks In Tehran, Venezuelan Leader Called 'Brother' By Ahmedinejad
"Chavez pledged that his country would 'stay by Iran at any time and under any condition,' state television reported. Ahmadinejad said he saw in Chavez a kindred spirit." "'We do not have any limitation in cooperation,' Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. 'Iran and Venezuela are next to each other and supporters of each other. Chavez is a source of a progressive and revolutionary current in South America and his stance in restricting imperialism is tangible.'":
Bammie is down for the count!
It is sad that Amerika has put a man in a position that is way over his head, and add to that, a chain of command that is even worse.
I think it’s going to catch on! The press not only accepts but defends whatever zero says so the term really fits. As a side note, the press, and the rest of the zero worshipers don’t have voodoo zombie bottles, unless a starbucks cup, or a bottle of evian water is the modern equivelent. (If that’s the case...this is one scary zombie movie we’re living in :-)
Who didn't expect that? Obama is a bitch and every leader that is a man knows it and doesn't respect him.
We should have probably worked harder to undermine Ahmadinejad rather than boost him up by calling him out. He only used that to bolster his support in Iran. Nothing riles up muzzies like examples of how the "Great Satan USA" is picking on little old Iran. We should have ignored him and covertly aided his internal supporters and worked to turn the people of Iran away from satanic Islam and towards Christ.
Just because they can’t build one (yet) doesn’t mean they don’t have one.....or two....or.......
Any guesses on how long it will take before Israel decides to ‘go it alone’? Good lord, I feel bad that we have this wuss in office who won’t defend Israel’s right to protect itself.
Don’t worry, Iran is at least 10 years away from making a bomb.
