Tell me again why we shouldn't be fighting the war in/for Iraq and essentially the fight of our lives. The joke is when/if Al Qaeda nukes Anyplace America, the lefttards will say "it was Bush's fault Halliburton wants the contract to rebuild".
Rantburg advises us of the following
Seized Bulgarian nuclear material may be linked to al-Qaeda The potentially lethal nuclear enrichment material that Bulgarian customs prevented from crossing into Romania is linked to Iran's nuclear quest, the Sunday Herald reported, citing Romanian sources
According to the reports an Arab-dominated Bucharest mafia was the intermediary in the hafnium deal.
A week ago Bulgaria's police in the northeastern Danube city Russe nabbed 3.5kg of hafnium, a material that could be used in the manufacture of radioactive "dirty bombs".
UPDATE 3:04 PM
Speaking of NUKES; Al Jizz reports
Ok, let me undertsand this. Iran is warning us that they will resume their diabolical nuclear strategems if the UN refers them to the Security Council for their nuclear diabolical antics.
Iran has threatened to resume uranium enrichment and block UN inspections of its nuclear facilities unless the UN nuclear agency reverses its resolution to refer it to the Security Council for possible sanctions.
So what's the diffference? Either way..............they are going nuclear.
and secondly, who out there believes they have stopped?................Believe that and I got some oceanfront property I wanna sell you in NOLA.
UPDATE: and if you don't believe me, maybe you'll listen to the Iranian President himself!
Anyone still foolish enough to believe that Iran would be willing to surrender its nuclear program absent overwhelming international pressure and sanctions should read a speech delivered before the Iranian Majlis by Iran's fundamentalist in chief, President Ahmadinejad. From Iran Press News: (thanks to Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi)
He said: "The Islamic regime will in no way, shape or form give up it's rights [to nuclear power]. The days of bullying, browbeating and power mongering is over. We can hear the cracking of the bones of these straw giants [under our feet] and we're shocked that these [westerners] are not able to face facts." He claimed: "Two years ago, all of a sudden, the regime's nuclear activities became the focus of the IAEA's investigation, based on false accusations, rhetoric and a huge amount of pressure and negative publicity that was mounted against us."
He added, commenting on the EU3's stance: "The 3 European countries who are being manipulated from behind the scenes by their allies, are racists and are looking to take the world back to the dark ages. They themselves are nuked up to the teeth and are piling security threats against those whose own security is in danger."
