Much hay was made late last week over the allegation that the Iranian government had underreported the amount of urnaium it had enriched through November. The White House accused Iran of reneging on its international obligations, and called the nation an “urgent problem that has to be addressed.”
Not so, says the International Atomic Enegy Agency (IAEA), which said the discrepancy between the reported and actual figures were “inherent in the early commissioning phases of such a facility when it is not known in advance how it will perform in practice.”

Ritter makes several excellent points in this short clip, but what he doesn’t mention is that even after we drop some of the “usable nukes” on Iranian civilians, the direct retaliation will also come from other Islamic countries against our troops in Iraq. Our soldiers will have no place to go and they will have little cover. The Shite government is already angry about the “Security Agreement” and the oil deals being shoved down their throats, and the Sunnis have suffered two years of ethnic cleansing and they the Madhi Army. So where are the 140,000 US troops there going to turn? Not to mention shutting down the Straight and running the price of oil up to $300 per barrel over-night. So “pick your city” war monger, then watch the Bush regime lock this country down in a police state as they reinstate the draft. All to bring to an end Iran LEGAL enrichment of uranium for peaceful, energy producing purposes.
