Obama the peace dove turns out to be more of an (atomic) warmonger

The irony […] is that Obama came to power via the siren call of multilateralism and the glories of the United Nations. And he will leave office having emasculated the Security Council’s potential to promote international peace and security and enforce non-proliferation, destroyed the credibility of the world’s nuclear watchdog agency, and undermined the relevance of treaties for American foreign policy from here on.

Amano/Biden: Israel’s survival definitely off the table

While, in order to give Israel another one of those daily international community blows, all aimed at its annihilation,

[t]he head of the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency is asking for international input on an Arab-led push to have Israel join the Nonproliferation Treaty, in a move that adds to pressure on Jerusalem to disclose its unacknowledged nuclear arsenal[,]

Joe Biden tells the EU parliament the joke that

[t]he United States and European Union have stood side-by-side to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons[,]

adding that

Iran’s nuclear program violates its obligations under NPT and risks sparking a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.

Nothing more.

The quotes are from the Jerusalem Post Online, 6/5/2010.


Iran can make nuclear bomb, is building a delivery system


Experts at the world’s top atomic watchdog are in agreement that Teheran has the ability to make a nuclear bomb and is on the way to developing a missile system able to carry an atomic warhead, according to a secret report seen by The Associated Press.


It appears to be the so-called “secret annex” on Iran’s nuclear program that Washington says is being withheld by the IAEA’s chief.

The document says Iran has “sufficient information” to build a bomb. It says Iran is likely to “overcome problems” on developing a delivery system.
