Experts: Iran's Boast May Mean Little

AP - Wed Apr 12, 3:56 PM ET

CAIRO, Egypt - Iran's boast that it has joined "the club of nuclear countries" by enriching uranium may rattle the Western world. But diplomats and experts familiar with the program say Iran still is far from producing any weapons-grade material needed for bombs and may be exaggerating its own progress. "The Iranians are deliberately trying to hype this up," David Albright, president of the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security, said Wednesday.


Interesting choice of words. Iran doesn't announce, it "boasts". Why are there quotes around the phrase, the club of nuclear countries? Is membership by fucking invitation only? And why would Iran be "exaggerating its own progress" if its intention truly is to harness nuclear energy for peaceful uses?

It is we, not they, who are "hyping this up". Get ready for yet another war, folks. It will be a doozy. Either we will preemptively nuke Iran into the Stone Age or we'll provoke them into attacking us first in self-defense.

And who could blame them, since plans to "take out" Iran are already being openly discussed and debated as a viable option, should Iran refuse to knuckle under to U.S. threats and demands.

Either way, we're fucked. If we strike first, rest assured they will retaliate.

Those of us living within a thirty mile radius of New York City can kiss our irradiated asses good-bye. New Yorkers won't have enough time to do that. They will be instantly vaporized -- grease spots and shadows burned into the sidewalk.
