Update: UK nuclear export sent to Iran
BRITAIN has allowed the export to Iran of a cargo of radioactive material that experts believe could be used by the Islamic Republic as part of a nuclear weapons programme, The Observer reported. A truck carrying 1000kg of zirconium silicate from a British firm was stopped by customs officials in Bulgaria at the border with Turkey.
It quoted an expert as saying that zirconium metal can be extracted from the substance, whose trade is usually tightly regulated, and used to prevent fuel rods corroding in nuclear reactors and as part of a nuclear warhead.
The God of War hates those who hesitate.

A few days ago President Ahmadinejad said
"we must prepare ourselves to rule the world."
And he cheerfully commented on Sharon's stroke, "The Butcher of Sabra and Shatila has joined his ancestors and others will soon follow suit."
A regime with such ambitions is capable of anything. hat tipShrink Wrapped- Congrats on your First Blogoversary
The "peace of jihad is founded on the principle "peace and security for land": peace and security are conceded by the jihad armies if the infidels cede their territory and submit to the rules of dhimmitude. [dhimmitude: the condition of "subjection with protection" of non-Muslims in their own countries, obtained by the cessation of their land to the Muslim ruler. Subjection because the infidels submit to Islamic law or face forced conversions, slavery or death. Dhimmitude is the direct outcome of jihad.1 more here
I am weighing in on the side of military action. Previous to the Bush presidency, America's recent history followed a left wing, self flagellating foreign policy and it served to weaken us, empower despots IE Chavez, Castro and embolden our enemies. The Vietnam War was the fault of the same liberals and the same failed policies that today are at the forefront of the opposition to the war that the left is forever invoking . Remember it was the left that got us into Vietnam (Kennedy, Johnson).
The left can not be effective in determining the best course for America to take in developing a strategy for Iran. Just as in the Vietnam era, they were/are spoiled brats looking for publicity, created by the LLL media. If one is to make a meaningful contribution they must reason, think, argue, develop ideas, and meet danger head on. The left forfeits.
I defined the madman's warmongering statements as the madman's doctrine back in early December.
The Ahmadinejad Doctrine. Just as President Bush declared a "Bush Doctrine" stating plainly that there would be no distinction between terrorists and those who harbor them, Ahmadinejad is stating his judenrein plainly and telling the world you are either with him or against him. Basically, he is opening the door to all the jew hating closet dwellers to come out of the closet. Their day has come. No more shame. Just as Hitler did. And, if you recall, al large part of the world embraced Hitler for it (including Teddy "not to worry I can swim" Kennedy's father - Ambassador to England at the time).
Iran will have the technological capability to produce nuclear weapons within three months -- the point of no return.
UN inspectors to reopen Iran nuclear centres [sheer genius]
Are they *%#* nuts?
and don't even think of writing me and telling me about different nuclear nuances and distinctions . Bring on the Caliphate Ahjamadman..........
awww, isn't that quaint? Despots Unite! Another supporter of the The Ahmadinejad Doctrine
only The New York Times would have the balls to spin this in such a way. The only surprisingly positive UN development in 2005 was BOLTON and the dhimmicrats and RINOs damn near prevented that too.
oyish...........the New York Times can't lick enough boots
"Why should the Middle East be hostage to an Israeli nuclear blackmail and not an Iranian one? "
