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.

    Is his DIRECTOR GENERAL nameplate really that big? He must have a massive sense of self importance, or the camera is just at a weird angle.

    Let me explain this one more time for you who, because of one mental illness or another, can not or will not understand: you live in a MILITARY/IDUSTRIAL STATE. War is its life blood. That you continue to think that this is a democracy, despite ALL EVIDENCE to the CONTRARY is just sad. There are people rioting in the streets all over the world, but you still don't get it. Sad.
