Lest We Forget Iran

With everything else (justifiably) occupying us at the moment, we should not forget that there are non-natural forces out there that wish the United States ill. One of those forces is the Islamic Republic of Iran. After much dithering and hand-wringing, it appears that the inestimable International Atomic Energy Agency has reached a conclusive non-conclusion about Iran's nuclear activities:
"The confidential report of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), obtained by Reuters, said the agency was 'still not in a position to conclude that there are no undeclared nuclear materials or activities in Iran.'

The report, penned by IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei, said: 'In view of the fact that the agency is not yet in a position to clarify some of the important outstanding issues after 2-1/2 years of intensive inspections and investigation, Iran's full transparency is indispensable and overdue.'"
Reading between the lines of this double-negative laden diplo-speak, one must conclude that the IAEA is saying that the Mullahs are up to no good.

Really?

Only a fool would believe that a country sitting on top of one of the largest proven petroleum reserves in the world has any need whatsoever for peaceful nuclear power. The ayatollahs want the Bomb in the worst way and are willing to lie, cheat and steal in order to get it.

Now -- what do we do about it?

Hopefully something -- while we have the chance.
