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.

    We know what has to be done.
    We have close friends who know.
    I think that the purpose of waiting to do it is to allow public support to build.

    Hey–how about that hypersonic speed, huh!
    The US Army can go 3,806 miles per hour now.

    No–wasn't it 3,805 mph?

    What person?
    Hey, did you ever go out into the country, stand still, and just watch a hawk in the sky?

    Nah, Chuck Yeager is still around.

    I've also heard that if someone takes your photograph, they steal your soul.

    I always wear a hard hat or bicycle helmet when I'm walking around. You can't be too careful.

    Oh also, it's too bad Israel didn't destroy the reactor before it went on line. If it gets bombed now, it will be a major release of radioactive material. But I believe the international community held Israel back, years ago.

    To take a word out of JIF's book:
    This thread is absurd.
    Thank you.

    Bombo, I tend to agree with you...both the Israeli situation and the soul-sucking pictures.

    Iraq all over again.
    The IAEA report published by a Washington Think Tank alleged that a Soviet Nuclear Weapons scientist was helping Iran build a weapon, without naming the scientist.
    It turns out that the Soviet scientist now identified as Vyacheslav Danilenko never worked on weaponry. He is one of the top specialists in the world on production of Nano diamonds by explosives.
    The report also admits that there is no evidence that Iran has seriously considered production of a nuclear bomb.
    Would the American public now be bamboozled into a war with Iran ??

    I think that's rather the thought process that BOMBO had...

    Hey, to get back to the absurdity, I've heard that small pets sometimes get taken by hawks. Has anyone actually heard of a confirmed case, or is this just another urban myth?

    It also turns out that the two disasters we got ourselves mired in- Iraq & Afghanistan, taking us to the brink of financial collapse havn't been lessons enough.
    The decline of US of A, loss of American lives, prestige, credibility & influence hasn't penetrated the thick sculls of the ignorant thugs beating the drums of war again up on the Hill. The shifting geop-political realities, balance of power, emergence of new power centres like India & Turkey, winds of change blowing across Arab lands, The Russia & China factors have made no dents in MIC & Israel fed non-intellects of politicos.
    God help us if the boot of our closest 'ally' up the collective behinds of our Congress, we are pushed into another disaster this country can hardly afford.
