Color me skeptical... no, color me outraged; the report by the National Intelligence Estimate released yesterday concluded that Iran ceased its secret nuclear weapons program in 2003, has not resumed it.
So let me get this straight... when the CIA and other U.S. intelligence agencies report that Iraq has WMD, they are simply minions of the criminal Bush regime intent on dragging us into war; but when the same agencies report that Iran is suddenly no threat at all, and nor more bellicose than your grandmother, the left embraces the news as if it was sent by
God Jimmah Carter.
However, it is "probably keeping open the option to develop nuclear weapons" by continuing to build missiles and pursue a civilian nuclear power program. (Full report here. )
The report estimates that Iran will not achieve weapons grade uranium production until 2010 and 2015.
Before the CIA takes the next six months off to go fishing, someone should point out to them that 2010 is only two years away.
Four NEI officials said that "information that has emerged recently" that Iran halted its secret program less than 12 months before the 2005 estimate was prepared
Furthermore, the report said that Tehran's nuke program was halted because of "increasing international scrutiny". International scrutiny??? Yeah, I'm sure it didn't have a thing to do with us destroying the military despotic rule of its next-door neighbor.
It is not secret that anti-Bush elements in the CIA and its sister agencies as well as the State Department have actively sought to undermine the President's programs in general and particularly, the war in Iraq.
The report includes photos from Iran's Natanz nuclear facility which intelligence analysts concluded Iran continues to face "significant technical problems" in using the facility to enrich uranium, one officer said. Origin of the photos...? They were taken by newspaper photographers on a media tour conducted by Ahmadinejad's Islamofacist government.
Using that rationale, should I have my taxes done by a news anchor?
Israel is nervous as hell... Ehud Barak, the Israeli defense minister, said it was likely that Iran had restarted its atomic weapons program since 2003... proving he has more intelligence intelligence than all our spook agencies combined. The NYT reports on Israel's belief that the weapons program has resumed.
With a resolve and clarity that is MIA in American, Barak said, “but we cannot allow ourselves to rest just because of an intelligence report from the other side of the earth, even if it is from our greatest friend.”
How was this news received in Tehran?
With huge celebration I'd say. Mohammad Ali Hosseini, a foreign ministry spokesman, said: "This report proves that Bush's statements - which always speak of the serious threat of Iran's nuclear program - are unreliable and fictitious."
Don't you know the lefties here will enlist this report in the continued support our enemies.
---- Our new ami, President Nicolas Sarkozy was having none of the BS about ragheads rioting in Paris because of unemployment... "The response to the rioters is not more money at the taxpayers' expense, but the arrest of rioters," he said."(The riots had) nothing to do with a social crisis, everything to do with the thugocracy."
He gets squishy here though... Ten cops were hit by shotgun fire, and Sarkozy vowed zero tolerance for the use of firearms against officers. But he added that police were worthy of praise because they legitimately could have fired back.
Five of the officers are in a critical condition and 60 were wounded.
Trust me... it wasn't the cops' decision not to defend their own lives.
The raghead ghetto-dwellers rioted because two dumbasses on a motorbike collided with a patrol unit. They learned that from our ghetto-dwellers... anything annoys you, burn down your neighborhood.
Nothing stops riots faster than an immediate and accurate suppressive fire.
---- Moving on to jolly, old...
... Yorkshire England where hospital nurses are fatigued and angry because they have been ordered to stop all medical work five times every day to move dozens of Muslim patients’ beds so they face towards Mecca.
The lengthy procedure also includes providing fresh bathing water so that Muslims have “a more comfortable stay in hospital”. Yes... you're way ahead of me: a taxpayer-funded training program for several hundred hospital staff is underway to ensure that everyone is familiar with the workings of the Muslim faith.
Next you'll be telling me the Muzzies would behead someone who named a stuffed animal Mohammad.
Or... why don't the Brits just go all the way as at left.
---- Let's just us adults talk...
Considering we are at war with radical Islam why do I constantly hear and read people insert the obligatory qualifier--"not all Muslims are bad/terrorists/mad bombers", "religion opf peace" etc.-- when discussing IslamoNazis?
Why should anyone have to state their politically correct bona fides before they voice an opinion about those who would annihilate us?
Before I write about Hitler and the SS do I have to give equal time to all the "good Germans"?
It is unnecessary and unwise to insist on sifting this silly chaff from the wheat... we're talking about a clear and present danger.
Congo, an 85-pound German Shepherd, is on death row for attacking a landscaper after he grabbed the dog's owner.
The 18-month-old is now home with his family in Princeton, New Jersey, after five months' incarceration at the city pound during which he was wasting away.
Shown with him are Hannah James and Michele Heker.
Naturally the details of the incident are disputed by the dog's owners, Guy and Elizabeth James, and the worker... Giovanni Rivera, a Honduran illegal immigrant.
Rivera suffered lacerations that required surgery and he received $250,000 from the James' homeowners insurance.
A municipal judge ruled Congo vicious and that the attack was unprovoked; state law requires the dog be executed. He remains with his family while the case is under appeal.
Thousands have protested and flooded the Gov. Jon Corzine's office with calls and emails. He has refused to become involved.
Have at it:
