  1. Very signnificant interview. No more trusting of the IAEA. Heaven help us all.

  2. Wouldn't it be great if Iran is to called for an open meeting with the 5+1 AND the IAEA and this meeting would be telecast live for all the world to see and hear what all these people have to say openly.

  3. I loath the IAEA scheme of the strong to keep the weal….weak

    The strange part is how this Nuclear State [Israel] has NO real Estate [in a nuclear sort of way]

    How many strikes of 100 kilotons could they take?? How many of ten megatons?? Maybe five??

    It was a bad idea to get the bomb for Israel…… AND continue it"s belligerent policies and
    jingoistic rhetoric….Just look what happened when the land of Gandhi got the bomb…..Now, no one is safe, WITHOUT one, in THEIR neighborhood…I t's tragic, especially for Israel…….Just look what "happened when the land of Gandhi got the bomb….Pakistan's Zia…"We may have to EAT GRASS. but we WILL get the BOMB….too" It is the Israelis who have CHOSEN this NUCLEAR] path….no one else…. no one is safe WITHOUT one [in THEIR neighborhood] now…. Where is that going to lead??

    A few months ago the ICRC found TRACES of highly enriched uranium in EGYPT….

    Is that trace the handwriting on the wall?? For Israel, for the entire region??

    The Jewish people seem to have a dominant proclivity to get into dangerous situations…

    We should all hope that saner leaders emerge to take their people in a better [safer] direction..

    This current path will end in a repeat of their darkest times…..And G-d forbid………

    There are not enough Israelis and they are too dependent on external assistance…….
    they do not have enough land area to truly be nuclear players…The idea they can take on the big boys is delusional hubris….. They lack not only LAND, but people [Jews] too….. They could find themselves a racial minority in their own [waste] land as a result of using the nuclear card to frequently and wantonly….. They seem to make more enemies every day…and make up their rules to suit the political weather of the hour… Nothing good can come of such belligerence, only sorrow…

  4. Beware of HR 2194. It calls for a blockade of Iran and that´s an act of war.

  5. I don't think anyone actually believed that the smoking laptop was anything other than forged documents put together by Israel and given to MKO that gave it to CIA
