Thought-Provoker Of The Day

"The Iranians want to present the world with
a fait accompli, to determine that the debate
over enrichment capabilities is behind them,
and that enrichment is already being accom-
plished on Iranian soil. The announcements
from Tehran are a bargaining chip. They are
meant to move the debate to the next point -
the extent of enrichment."
- Israel chief of Military Intelligence, Amos Yadlin

In a scary-short time, Iran has moved the chip from whether to enrich to how much enrichment. Count on the IAEA and UN to dumbly look at the chip, scratch their heads, and call a meeting to outline a report from a soon-to-be-named commission on enrichment levels and timelines.

The Mullahs aren't going to negotiate away their bomb, not after all the celebration. It's time for countries that care enough to save the world to cash in Iran's chips for us. Hopefully, we can find at least one or two countries to go along with us.
