Just One More Quick Thought ...

I know I've been going on and on about Iran the last few days, but one last thought.

MSM, like Americablog, are glomming onto the "ten year" scenario for Iran's nuke program. Witness the NYT's big story:
Still, nuclear analysts called the claims exaggerated. They said nothing had changed to alter current estimates of when Iran might be able to make a single nuclear weapon, assuming that is its ultimate goal. The United States government has put that at 5 to 10 years, and some analysts have said it could come as late as 2020.
This is akin to saying "dumb blacks can't get off the plantation" -- it's bigotry of the worst kind towards the Iranian people.

The Pakistanis built a bomb, as did the North Koreans and the Indians. What makes the Iranians so inherently incompetent that MSM is confident projecting that they'll stumble along (with all their oil revenues, yet!) for another 14 years before they dimwittedly get their bomb?

The only explanation I can come up with is that they think the Iranians mentally inferior.
