U.N. nuclear watchdog: Deep concern over Iranian nuclear program

The U.N. nuclear watchdog's governing council adopted a resolution Friday expressing "deep and increasing concern about the unresolved issues regarding the Iranian nuclear program, including those which need to be clarified to exclude the existence of possible military dimensions."

The statement comes after a International Atomic Energy Agency report that was critical of Iran.

Iran has repeatedly insisted its nuclear program is for peaceful, civilian energy purposes only. But a November 8 report by the IAEA found "credible" information that Tehran has carried out work toward nuclear weapons, including tests of possible bomb components.

      You are telling me you are not concerned about Iran's nuclear ambitions. Have you looked at ANY of the findings from even the nuclear watchdog groups? Did you know Obama and Hilliary are very worried about this? Do you know the the Iranian leader's own religion believes armageddon must take place? How about the fact that he has openly said he wants to blow Israel off the face of the planet. How about the fact that they have been caught lying on no less than 30 occasions about there program – why will they not allow full inspections? New evidence now has proven they lied again and are testing weapons that support nuclear bombs. They lie – it's a cultural approach – whatever it takes to push their agenda is ok. Read before you post.

    You live in a MILITARY/INDUSTRIAL//COMPLEX. The major business of the United States is the manufacturing and sale of weapons of war. In order to keep profits high, war or the threat of war must be constant. This has been a fact for quite some time; Ike tried to warn us, no one believed it could happen. Well we now live in a POLICE STATE. Not could, might, if, and or but, WE LIVE IN A POLICE STATE TODAY.
