Iran v West: Who’s da punk now?!?

on

Well let me get it out here and now. in my opinion the true punk is the Tehran regime but with that said any honest person could see it play the other way.

“Fortunately this power plant went online despite the enemies’ hostilities,” Spokesman for the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Kazem Jalali said Sunday.

That’s for national and international consumption folks and there are plenty of folks that will be lapping it up.There is also this:

“[This] shows that threats by certain powers and the illegitimate Israeli regime made prior to the launch [of the plant] were psychological warfare against Iran,” Mehr News Agency quoted Jalali as saying.

and

“We recognize that the Bushehr reactor is designed to provide civilian nuclear power and do not view it as a proliferation risk,” AFP quoted State Department spokesman Darby Holladay as saying on Saturday.

This last one is backed up via reporting from RFE/RFL other quotes from PresssTV

So to recap.

The Iranians have played this that they have punked the world.

They now enjoy official sanction from the USA and Russia that their stated claim has been the truth all along.

The USA has pretty much showed its hand that all previous jabber was completely without credibility.

Israel is being called out.

Any number of nations are being taught that the traditional West powers to be and specifically the USA have gone down another couple of notches.

    Exactly. But it is not the US so much as certain fear mongering neocons…. John Bolton any one? What a total creep.

    Those that rattle on about Iranian nukes do not understand the technological difficulties in building one. – no the differeence beween a civilian reactor and a military one – or the differnece between yellow cake and what it takes to make a bomb.
    I could make yellow cake in my bathtub …..I can’t make a bomb.

    I have a 50-50 thing going on with Bolton.I like him when he is stern and focused. When he is like that he looks like Powell, Stevenson,or Kirkpatrick.There are times he’s a little to hawkish though. I don’t know 50/50 or up to 70/30. Somewhere around there.
    Anyway get ready for a lot of Iranian press as the are entering the week they issue countless state of the state stuff. This is why all the missile stories are pouring out too.

    Bolton is a terrible diplomat and Iran is making US diplomacy its bitch.

  4. Umm… Yellow cake is mined not made, just to let you know.

    And now they have a neat little drone type bomber too…

    I know how yellow cake is MADE. I have seen it MADE.
    “Yellowcake (also called urania) is a kind of uranium concentrate powder obtained from leach solutions, in an intermediate step in the processing of uranium ores”

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellowcake

    Just to let you know.
    Unless someone sloppily calls ore “yellow cake”. It’s not.

    I think it is just because Bushehr is the open and public face of the Iranian nuclear program, the real work is going on in secret bunkers and plants.

    Bushehr is peaceful and can safely be ignored, but you have to hand it to the Iranians, they play a great game and make themselves look like the good guys.
