Iran sitiuation, Round II

Top News Article | Reuters.com: "France accused Iran on Thursday of pursuing a secret military nuclear program, drawing a swift rebuke from Tehran before talks next week on a Russian proposal for resolving the dispute.

The United States said the international community was very concerned about Iran developing nuclear arms but diplomacy was being used to try to resolve the standoff. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she was very optimistic about the diplomacy.

French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy said Iran's nuclear work, which Tehran says is solely for power generation, could not possibly be designed for civilian uses alone.

Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani responded with a warning to the West not to hector Tehran, an exchange that boded ill for talks in Moscow on Monday on the Russian proposal.

Russia has offered to enrich Iranian uranium on its soil and return it to Iran for use in atomic reactors, thereby easing international concerns Iran could produce bomb-grade uranium."

A couple of thoughts:
1. Not all French officials are idiots, even some of them recognize that a hard-line ultra-militant iranians are not innocently developing neuclear power.
2. What does Iran even need nuclear power? They've got so much oil available to make energy with. And it's not because they want a clean enviroment, its the desert, and they're methods of drilling are not a standard to measure cleanliness by.
3. Whats with the Russians?????? They have got to have some ties with the Iranians, and I would not be suprised if it was assistance in their nueclear program.
4. Tehran is asking to be invaded.

I'd rather have it sooner then later. These clowns are dangerous clowns.
