IAEA, the UN's Nuclear Witchdoctor

How else can you describe a group that insists a nation is 'possessed' unless or until they prove otherwise?

Western diplomats say Iran would be entitled to produce atomic fuel only if it could prove its aims were entirely peaceful but the U.N. nuclear watchdog the International Atomic Energy Agency says it still cannot give Iran a clean bill of health.

[The term] witch doctor often refers to healers that believe that maladies are caused by magic and are therefore best cured by it, as opposed to science or developed medicine.

[The term] is generally used with negative connotations, as implying that the people who the witch doctor serves are primitive and credulous.

That sounds about right.

Ahmadinejad accused the Europeans of living in a "colonialist world" and said Tehran would not accept any decisions reached at the Brussels meeting.

"If they want to decide things that concern us in a place where we are not present, then that body does not have any legal validity or credibility in decision-making," Ahmadinejad said.

"We do not understand what is going on in their heads and who they think they are dealing with. The Iranian nation ... can decide for itself," he added.

But wait, you can't do that! You're possessed!

Iran "is ready to engage in dialogue with anybody."

"There are no limits to our dialogue," Ahmadinejad told Metro TV station. "But if someone points a weapon at your face and says you must speak, will you do that?"

See! I told you! Only a witch would prefer being burned at the stake for the sake of autonomy when servitude offers an easy way out.

We need to fight them over there so we don't have to fight them over here. If Iran gets nucular weapons, what's to stop them from using them on the US?

Carrie, why don't YOU go over there and fight them. I'm sick of armchair warriors. Enlist and go fight them.

oakey: If you would like people to take your comments seriously I would suggest NOT using mainstream talking points.

By the way, you've got some residue on your chest.

It is time for you people to start doing your home work! Iran is acting within International Law it is the BUSH admin that is NOT! Remember GW Bush BROKE THE TREATY first by demanding that Iran cease buidling and fueling a POWER STATION activites. IRAN told BUSH ADMIN that they are building a POWER STATION so that they can produce more electricity for their OIL. Which are allowed under THE NUCLEAR Non_Proliferation Treaty. Both Iran and U.S. signed that TREATY. But Israel has NOT. (Article 6 of the Constitution, makes TREATY obligations the highest of the land. If Bush wants OUT of the TREATY there was as this article points out, A LEGAL PROCESS to floow to remove oneself from the TREATY. BUSH did NOT follow that procedure. He simply BROKE the TREATY and with it both U.S. and International Law. Iran has ample justification to leave the NNPT and pursue a nuclear dettent capability. IRAQ taught the world what the U.S, will do to nations that DO NOT have NUCLEAR WEAPONS. BUSH ADMIN is lying about IRAN just as they lied about IRAQ. Put in a search at google.com IRAN's OIL EXCHANGE... Iran is selling their OIL now with EUROS, this will kill our economy, so BUSH ADMIN is lying and saying that Iran is making nukes, they do not have a nuke program the PRESIDENT OF IRAN has constantly told him POWER STATION for more electricity. They have uranium to make only a power station they do no t have enought to make a bomb they have searched them for 3 years now NOTHING, and there is no bomb that would come if they have the money in 10 years, all the other countries have NUKES you dont see BUSH going after them do you because they do not have OIL... if IRAN had NUKES do you think US and ISRAEL would bomb them? No way... Bush admin is lying all over again and you that do not search and sit there and believe him as like IRAQ are being brainwashed all over again.

Sorry I couldn't resist, from Carrie Oakey's "Blog":

The War For Freedom Can Not End Until We've Rounded Up All The Muslims

How's a good Christian girl supposed to sleep at night knowing that Osama Bin Laden is still on the loose and releasing audio tapes taunting us to try and catch him. Just the thought of that creeps face gives me the willies. I only hope that God guides George Bush to the country where Osama is hiding so we can catch him once and for all and I can stop having nightmares!!! We should just keep on invading Muslim countries until one of them gives up the ghost!!
Which is whyb we should invade Iran. They're probably hiding Osama out along with all their nucular weapons. We should drop nucular weapons all over that country and maybe we'll kill Osama, and if not, we'll have cleaned up a lot of towel headed Mohammed loving freedom hating camel riding Muslims that one day might want to fly a plane right in to the White House. We can never be free as long as those types of people are walking around free!
