The Other Nuclear Talks

Barack Obama is in DC with the heads of other countries to discuss the need to reduce the nuclear arsenals that countries have and to make it harder for terrorist groups to obtain nuclear material. It has been reported that great progress has been made.

The progress in Iran, that is.

In what seems to be a recurring theme, Russia made an announcement that looks like it was timed to embarrass Obama. The nuclear reactor that Russia is building in Iran will be up and running by August. Not to worry though, we have been assured that the reactor is for peaceful purposes and we have no doubt that is the truth because the peaceful, sane, leader of Iran has told us so. If he were some kind of Holocaust denier who wanted Israel wiped off the map then we might have something to worry about.

Interestingly, there seems to be a great deal of concern that Iran might have other ideas on how to use the reactor and could — Wait for it–use it to produce nuclear weapons.

And to top it off, Syria has delivered long range missiles to Hezbollah. Hmm, long range missiles and nuclear material, I wonder what could happen if some nut put those two together…

Good thing the rational leader of Iran and the anti terrorist group Hezbollah are the ones in possession or things might get bad for places like Israel.

It is also fortunate that Obama had all these leaders here to tell them America would be reducing its number of nukes and got these folks to sign on that they would make it harder for terrorists to get their hands on nuclear material. Otherwise a country like Russia might build a nuclear reactor in a country that sponsors terrorism.

Thank God Obama is on the case.

Kind of makes me wonder though, why there was discussion about what Americans should expect in the event a nuke detonated here. As an aside, the 72 hours discussed here is standard for a federal response (like it was in Katrina, which was met). However, I am willing to bet (and I hope I never have to find out) that it will be much longer than 24-72 hours if a nuke detonates here.

But we have nothing to worry about. The Russians have told us that they will work hard to keep terrorists from getting nuclear material and I am sure they will get right on that right after they get paid for building terrorists a reactor to make their own nuclear material.

Looks like Israel will be making a surprise visit to Iran sometime around September.

Never surrender, never submit.
