Persia-Pocalypse Update

Iran is ever-closer to the bomb and as resolute as ever. With Ahmadinejad heading to Manhattan, Israel's intelligence wheels spinning furiously, and Hamas and Hezbollah rearming themselves, we seem to have hit another crest in the up-and-down cycle of panic and apathy spurred on by the Iranian mullocracy.

On that note, here are a few related stories worth checking out:

Military Intelligence: Iran Halfway to First Nuclear Bomb :: According to the head of research for Israeli military intelligence, as Iran's progress toward a nuclear weapon speeds up, the West's dedication to stopping the Islamic republic slows down. He says Iran has already enriched one-third to one-half of the uranium needed for a bomb.

Iran exploits every second the ticking clock gives them, as every second exploits our weakness in the West.

IAEA Chief: Iran Could Be Hiding Nukes :: This one is a little more unnerving and slightly more believable, given the black-market proliferation that occurred after the Soviet union dissolved, and after Pakistan's A.Q. Khan sold the power of the stars to the highest bidder.

The fact is, if Iran wanted to buy an off-the-shelf nuke, there are plenty of willing distributors. One of which, I regret to inform you, is Al-Qaeda.

Ahmadinejad: We'll Stop Any Attacker :: More rhetoric from Mr. Dinner Jacket as he claims that Iran is "not in a position to show softness toward its enemies." Coincidentally, Iran is also not in a position to be bombed into the bronze age.

The Speech Palin Never Gave :: From Haaretz, this is the text of the speech Palin was to give at the anti-Iran rally in New York. This was the rally Hillary turned down, evidently because her special "awkward" pantsuit wasn't back from the cleaners. In the speech, Palin talks of Iran's desire for a new "final solution," and speaks soberly about the threat Iran poses. From the speech:
Tomorrow, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will come to New York - to the heart of what he calls the Great Satan - and speak freely in this, a country whose demise he has called for.

Ahmadinejad may choose his words carefully, but underneath all of the rhetoric is an agenda that threatens all who seek a safer and freer world. We gather here today to highlight the Iranian dictator's intentions and to call for action to thwart him. He must be stopped.
Keep your eye on the chess game, folks.
