Iran and the bomb ... dirty.

I don't usually get into politics but having seen these headlines, I had to make a brief comment.

Last month, the president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, made the statement: "The bottom line is we do not need a bomb," [Ahmedinejad] said at a news conference on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.

My first thought was, "Of course they don't, that would be too complicated."

Given the fact that Iran is one of the biggest supporters of radical Islamic terrorism, why get all complicated with a bomb? Even with peaceful nuclear power you always have a rather "endless" supply of ... what else ... radioactive waste.

This headline just makes the thought of Iran having nuclear power a bit more scary:
Al Qaeda seeking nuclear kit for attacks: UK official

I really can't trust Ahmedinejad when he says "We love everyone in the world — Jews, Christians, Muslims, non-Muslims, non-Jews, non-Christians. We are against ugly acts. We are against occupation, aggression, killings and displacing people — otherwise we have no problem with ordinary people," and then he gets on his own Iranian TV and says stuff about America and England being enemies of Iran.

Western media is so flawed.
