Mad Mullahs closer and closer to A-Bomb

Haaretz reports Iran enriches uranium for nuclear bombs-diplomats
"The Iranians are producing UF6 (uranium hexafluoride) like hell," a non-U.S. diplomat on the governing board of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) told reporters.
They have to specify that the diplomat involved is 'non-US' because we couldn't believe a word of what he said had he been a US diplomat. Funny that.

Less funny is this:
"The Iranians have produced some UF6 gas," said a Western diplomat close to the IAEA. "The EU three are apparently not too fazed by this."

IAEA chief Mohamed Elbaradei said on Monday in a report on his two-year investigation of Iran's nuclear program that Tehran had not diverted any of its declared nuclear materials to a weapons program.

But he did not rule out the possibility that other secret atomic activities existed.

Another diplomat described it as shocking news and said the IAEA's 35-member board of governors would have to seriously consider whether to report Tehran to the Security Council for possible sanctions.
The 35-member board 'would have to seriously consider whether to report Tehran to the Security Council for possible sanctions.' Imagine that. And how long it would take. And then, for argument's sake, let's say the matter DOES get reported to the UN SC. Where France and Russia hold a veto. That's right, the SC would decide NOTHING will happen, and even just reaching that 'decision' will take forever. Although no one in his right mind is going to wait for the outcome.

We don't have to nuke Iran. Lots and lots of conventional ordnance will do just as well.
