Iran closer to Nukes - The West Snores

Remember the headlines on Iran and Nukes late last year, it was splashed everywhere, “U.S. Intelligence Report Says Iran Abandoned Nuclear Weapons Program in 2003.” Take that Bushitler!!! No more reason to attack Iran, if he said anything different, look at that war monger, the baby killer, we should talk to them, the last thing we need is another war, down with war, give peace a chance!!! Guess again folks, and you won't see any of this on the evening news, you will hear about Brittney's latest stunt though and how billions around the world are grief stricken over some actor that died recently, I wonder why.
IHT - Iran has begun to deploy a new generation of machinery to produce nuclear fuel, a development bound to intensify a roiling debate in Washington about whether a recent National Intelligence Estimate accurately portrayed Tehran's progress toward the ability to build a nuclear weapon.The testing of the new machinery, centrifuges known as IR-2s, was disclosed by European diplomats and U.S. officials and was reported over the past two days in Europe. Centrifuges spin at enormously high speeds to enrich uranium, which can be used to fuel nuclear reactors or, after more processing, nuclear weapons. The IR-2 is an improvement on a Pakistani design that the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, boasted in an April 2006 speech would quadruple Iran's enrichment powers.
Emphasis mine, but but wait folks, there's more, more that conveniently won't make it to your paper's headlines or the evening news, funny that.
Reports about the new centrifuges were made just two days after the director of U.S. national intelligence, Mike McConnell, told Congress that he had regrets about how the National Intelligence Estimate had been written. McConnell testified Tuesday that weapons design was "probably the least significant part of the program" and that Iran's refusal to halt uranium enrichment meant that it still posed a potential nuclear threat. "In retrospect," he said, "I would do some things differently."
Oh really, in retrospect he would do things differently, when you stop and think about the implications of Iran joining the nuclear club, that sentence is the last thing you want to hear. Here's a scenario to explain why, imagine you're the pilot of that new A380 and you're responsible for 500+ people and you're somewhere over the pacific and you see a raging storm ahead. Suddenly the air hostess frantically calls in saying they can hear a loud ticking sound towards the middle of the plane. Then the co-pilot swings around and says, oh yeah when I was coming aboard in Tehran, I saw a couple of guys loading a long tube like object into the cargo hold, chanting 'Allah Akbar' and 'Death to Infidels', I didn't think much of it at the time. "In retrospect, I would do some things differently."
