Powell Says Iran Is Pursuing Bomb
SANTIAGO, Chile, Nov. 17 -- The United States has intelligence that Iran is working to adapt missiles to deliver a nuclear weapon, further evidence that the Islamic republic is determined to acquire a nuclear bomb, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell said Wednesday.Shit, they forgot the yellow-cake purchases from Niger. Damn.
Separately, an Iranian opposition exile group [ed. headed by Chalabi, perhaps?] charged in Paris that Iran is enriching uranium at a secret military facility unknown to U.N. weapons inspectors. [ed. well, tell them where it is and let them go and take a look.] Iran has denied seeking to build nuclear weapons.
Mohammad Mohaddessin, of the National Council for Resistance in Iran, uses satellite imagery to pinpoint what the group says is a previously unknown nuclear facility in Iran."I have seen some information that would suggest that they have been actively working on delivery systems. . . . You don't have a weapon until you put it in something that can deliver a weapon," Powell told reporters traveling with him to Chile for an Asia-Pacific economic summit.
And the world is supposed to believe this time, I guess.
Sounds like they think things have gone so well in Iraq that they're ready to take on the big dogs now. God help us. God protect us from these monsters.
The ones in Washington, I mean.
To clarify it a little more, I really mean the press. Have they learned their lesson? Probably not. We'll be so scared by the time the 2006 elections come along that we'll decide it isn't worth even having elections anymore.
Good evening, friends. As I said, things are not good, so have turned an eye again to art, where I'll be buried for the evening.
