    The fact is that the IAEA has failed to find a single shred of evidence that there is an ongoing weapons program in Iran. Moreover, most of the points which the IAEA had wanted cleared up have been. There are few outstanding issues, none of which were particularly serious in the first place. I would be delighted if Iran decided to mothball it's enrichment program, but at this time that program is clearly only aimed at manufacturing reactor fuel, and that is allowed by the NPT. The chicken little types running around screaming 'the sky is falling" all share two things in common. First they are totally ignorant of the requirements of a nuclear weapons - as opposed to nuclear power - program; second, they appear easily scared by nonsense. That there are those who are happy to prey upon ignorance, feeble minds, and unstable personalities complicates the situation. Chicken Little was wrong. Chicken Little was a Fool. The current batch of nuclear Chicken Little clones are fools as well.
