"The Iranian government requested the delay to allow them more time to prepare for the visit,"
Yeah. "Quick, everyone grab a mop and start cleaning up this uranium stuff!"
They're preparing, alright.

Israel mulls Iran attack to stop nukes
TEL AVIV, Israel, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- Israeli military leaders are considering an assault operation to destroy Iran's suspected nuclear weapons program, a report said Friday.
Israel's chief of staff, alarmed by the failure of the international community to move against Iran, has warned that Israel would consider unilateral action to stop the "nightmare scenario" of Teheran's development of nuclear weapons.
Earlier, Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom demanded that the international community stop the program, WorldTribune.com reported.
Israel's Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Moshe Ya'alon took the rhetoric up a notch.
"At the moment there is continuing international diplomatic activity to deal with this threat, and it would be good if it succeeds," Ya'alon said. "But if that is not the case we would consider our options."
Israel has never specified what action it might take to stop Iran's nuclear weapons program, which Teheran has denied having. But Israeli officials assert that the nation's deep-strike air capability has been vastly upgraded since Israeli F-16 multi-role fighters destroyed the Iraqi reactor at Osirak in 1981. http://interestalert.com/brand/siteia.shtml?Story=st/sn/09260000aaa0556b.upi&Sys=siteia&Fid=WORLDNEW&Type=News&Filter=World%20News
