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.

    @ banasy
    I really don't know. I'm just worried that this nation is being pushed in a direction which would see us flailing for a grip or a toe hold at the brink again.

    @Bombo:
    I have personally seen a hawk swoop down and pick up me next-door-neighbor' teacup Chihuahua...he dropped him a few feet off of the ground, though, and I got the poor little guy.
    T'aint no myth.

    @saywhat:
    We *are* in dire straights right now, I'll give you that.
    Concentrating all of our attention overseas when there is so much unrest here at home is not in our best interests, I would say...

    He was. He was as big as a railroad.
    He was a Grande Hawk Railroad.
    Actually, the dog was only about 2 pounds. He didn't look like he was finished percolating...
