cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

THIS is why israel hearts ahmadinejad

How Convenient Is THIS?????? Really? Could he *possibly* lay Iran more carefully on the sacrificial altar? Then again, what did he actually say? Could we please have the full text and a translation? Apparently it's all so "sketchy" except for the part where he says the most inflammatory things, that part is apparently not "sketchy." Weird, huh? - Ed.

amid protests, iran leader calls holocaust a myth


LONDON — Courting renewed international criticism, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran on Friday called the Holocaust a myth as his country marked an annual pro-Palestinian demonstration amid reports of clashes between his supporters and opposition protesters.

With sketchy accounts filtering past official media controls.....

....Details of the reported clashes on Friday remained sketchy.


...

In a speech to a pro-Palestinian rally, which also fell on the eve of the Jewish New Year, Mr. Ahmadinejad called confrontation with “the Zionist regime” a “national and religious duty,” news reports said.

Several reports quoted him as saying the Holocaust was false pretext for the establishment of Israel in 1948. “It is a lie” based on an unprovable and “mythical claim,” he was quoted as saying in the speech.

Mr. Ahmadinejad said the Israeli “regime has no future. Its life has come to an end,” Reuters reported.

Mr. Ahmadinejad made similar remarks after his first election as president in 2005. But, coming only days before scheduled talks between his government and western powers, his latest denial of the Holocaust seemed likely to cast a cloud over those discussions.

...

She [CLINTON] said the meeting, to be held Oct. 1, would fulfill President Obama’s pledge to engage with Iran. But she insisted that the United States would not be drawn into a lengthy and fruitless diplomatic dance with Iran, as some analysts have warned.

“We have no illusions about the Iranian government,” Mrs. Clinton said. “The point is to meet and explain to the Iranians, face to face, the choices that Iran has, and to see whether Iran is prepared to engage.”

They seem to know already that diplomacy will be FRUITLESS. So once the 10/1 meeting takes place they can express "regret" that diplomacy failed, as prearranged, and then proceed to attack Iran, because of course there will be "No Choice," seeing as Ahmadinejad made all these terrible threatening remarks, *again.* - ed.
