An Ugly Surprise

Iran has a new toy:

President Obama and the leaders of France and Britain blasted Iran’s construction of a previously unacknowledged uranium enrichment facility and demanded Friday that Tehran immediately fulfill its obligations under international law or risk the imposition of harsh new sanctions.

“Iran is breaking rules that all nations must follow,” Obama said, detailing how the facility near Qom had been under construction for years without being disclosed, as required, to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). “International law is not an empty promise.”

Apparently, the size of the facility is such that it cannot be for peaceful purposes. Lovely. They have been building it in secret for years.

There have been far too many on the left who have been pooh-poohing the notion that Iran was dangerous. One does not expect that to change anytime soon. Probably not before the ugly, mushroom-shaped clouds begin appearing. 

Probably not even then, come to think of it.

    The sick part is that we’ve known about that facility for years – well before that idiotic NIE report in 2007 that claimed Iran had stopped its nuclear program. Some of us have been burying our heads in the sand, while others (the NIE authors and the Democrats) have been playing cheap political games rooted in their hatred of George W. Bush.

    Does anyone take the latest threats from the US and the EU to “get tough” seriously? The Iranians sure don’t.

    You should see the article at the HuffPo defending BHO on this. Says this was all part of his marvelous plan. Like a grandmaster at chess, he has the Iranians trapped right where he wants them. One would swear the article was from the Onion, or perhaps Iowahawk.
