    This is very funny. The Americans and their allies write a load of reports about Iran that are probably all made up anyway just like similar reports on Iraq and this has somehow vindicated them. Sorry I am not seeing that. Sounds like BS to me. The former head of the IAEA ElBaradei claimed that he did not know if any of the so called evidence he was handed by the Americans was true or not and now that the Americans have their guy in as top man in the IAEA it just seems even less plausible that any of these intelligence reports are true.The fact is that there still is no smoking gun. The endless reports in the media over the last few days have been a joke, we have had everything from Iran will have a bomb in 3 months to 3 years. The facts are that no one outside Iran knows what is going on at all and the Iranians are saying that they do not want nukes as it is no good having a few of them against a country that has thousands. I find the constant war drums of Israel and politicians in America to be a pain frankly. Also they are not going to sanction Iran anymore as the Russians and Chinese will not allow it and all the west is doing is pushing Iran closer to Russia and China. At the end of the day we are all going to have to sit down and talk nicely to each other because if Iran is attacked then all hell will break lose in the middle east and Israel will be on the receiving end of a lot of it.
