This is one very fishy story. Unlike Saddam, who had no nuclear program left, the Iranians themselves say proudly they have thousands of centrifuges making as much high grade fissile material as possible for "peaceful purposes", all they while sitting on huge petroleum reserves. The Americans blew it with Saddam, who tried to bluff his way to a bomb and didn't have the balls or brains to stop playing chicken with the Americans. Bush told us "you'll see the proof of WMD" - and of course we know there was none. Now the Americans are saying they're going to stop playing chicken with the Iranians. Yet the Iranians aren't bluffing anybody, except to use the worn out phrase "for peacefule purposes". Betcha none of you readers remember India saying the same thing in the 60's and early 70's. Once they exploded their first nuke, they kept saying the weapons were "for peaceful purposes". Boy are we all dumber than dumb.
