If the U.S. want to destroy Tehran's nuclear facilities? No, the safety case is not disproportionate and risks
Is it too late to ask why Iran should be allowed to lose their hard-earned money to develop their own nuclear weapons without destroying earlier as Nick Hopkins in The Guardian reported today?
No, it's too late. As with the Greek debt, it is never too late for people to exercise their own benefit received -. Especially those who are old and distinguished pedigree as Greece and Iran, formerly Persia, who fought each other to death long ago
The question in both cases is: is it a good idea and if so, who? As Plato says in the good old days, there is a difference between what is good for the state and what pleases people.
But the Greeks, at least, are about to choose between the euro and its debt to a plebiscite of the population (so that the policy was maintained at lunchtime ).
In contrast, the Islamic Revolution of Iran made the fateful away the last vestiges of popular consent when cooked in the presidential election of 2009 and turned to violence against the opposition Despite the tensions between politicians and ayatollahs mounting by the day.
So I do not know if the Iranian woman on the street is happy at the prospect of their leaders in Tehran have the bomb or if you prefer more food in stores, and more freedom.
But this is not the problem for us. The report Hopkins (Julian Borger gives the technical background here), the Ministry of Defence is preparing contingency plans in case the U.S. military support and diplomatic British target Iranian nuclear sites, heavily protected by the mountains that they are.
United States and the United Kingdom of solidarity is always a good theory - more or less mandatory since 1940 - but we have entered a number of problems, you know where
Why now? This witness from time to time, sometimes on the basis of new facts disturbing, sometimes depending on the domestic political agenda of the enemies of Iran - Saudi Arabia, Israel or the United States, to name but three
And boy, do Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the chapter that is easy for them. Can you imagine - a cross between a nuclear weapon, Ken Livingstone and Boris JohnsonEwen MacAskill As
and Harriet Sherwood report, the Israeli Cabinet has considered its military options (new) "in private" - ho ho - but a good rule of thumb that sensible people avoid doing this regardless either the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, wants to do, apart from cleaning the teeth at night. Have a little selfish Ken and Boris, too.
With the approach of elections in a year this week, the Obama administration seems to want to pipe the usual hotheads down. "That will not happen," seems to be the message from Washington. I'm sure it's correct, and I remember finally decide that it is not necessary to read regular viewer after plowing through a column Bush bravely took the crowd were doing. Oh no, not
But it is not easy. In the middle of renewed concerns among Western intelligence agencies (do not laugh in the back of the class), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is to publish a newsletter that can be a change, it provides unprecedented detail the current experiments, despite years of sabotage that included the murder of Iranian weapons scientists.
not very nice, I agree - but it is a very rough justice, and to the regime in Tehran, which hangs its own citizens in many cranes for reasons generally false, even the housewives in Tehran and his faithful devotion to the violent and destructive strategy of terrorism to help destabilize neighboring states.
If the IAEA - which sometimes follow-up was very accommodating (refers to the rating agency Moody by any chance?) In the past - decided things seriously, they are probably. But this justifies a preemptive strike against Israel as a nuclear plant at Osirak in Iraq - known as "O'Chirac" in honor of French technical assistance - in 1981The most surprising of the eight (as well as Israel and South Africa at the moment) is that in his opinion, or feeling particularly vulnerable. They attacked without warning by Japan in 1941, the U.S. has always had a series of paranoia (another surprise attack of 2001 reinforced the feelings) and not feel compelled to lose millions of lives to defeat Japan sports the way where you can go high tech.
