It’s time to hold rogue Iran accountable

“Confronting the Zionist regime is a national and religious duty,” fumed Iranian dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to worshippers in Tehran during the recent annual anti-Israel rally, which ironically consecrates the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan and raises disturbing concerns about the focus of Iran’s controversial nuclear desires.

A country has the right to develop its own nuclear fuel as long as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) supervises the potentially corruptible process, as decreed in the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, a necessary protocol which Iran has simply ignored.

After years of demonizing the Free World, thumbing its nose at UN inspectors and refusing to suspend its highly-suspect and lawless uranium enrichment program, Iran has now surfaced with an unprecedented willingness to talk with world leaders at a “summit,” oddly even agreeing to transport its cache of enriched uranium to Russia to be refined for peaceful purposes. No need, though, to break open the bubbly just yet given Russia’s tumultuous history with the truth.

Iran’s mood change comes only because the Khamenei-Ahmadinejad regime has been caught building a second, illegal nuclear power plant near the holy city of Qum %u2013 a telling sign of its intentions %u2013 and because of Ahmadinejad’s withering reputation on the world stage, which has become marginalized even in his own nation since the bloody, state-sanctioned crackdown following his disputed June re-election. That revealed him and his Shiite cohorts to be Allah-less thugs who, if they began repenting their sins today, would not be finished until the dusk of eternity.

Any talks with Iran should tackle Tehran’s defiance, question its failure to address its nuclear issues as mandated by the UN Security Council resolutions and nail the extremist Islamic nation on its relentless hostilities towards the United States and Israel, both of whom are the Middle East’s saving grace.

Last October, in a pointed signal of his insolence towards any new leader of the Free World, supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated his “hatred” of the United States while his puppet, Ahmadinejad, compounded the invective by proclaiming that the Land of Milk & Honey be “wiped off the map.”

If, as Iran claims, the plants will only generate electricity for its population, then why is it constructing them covertly and in contravention of IAEA rules when the Gulf nation boasts an ample reservoir of oil and natural gas deposits that could have completed the task a long time ago?

Iran’s radical leaders have connived, conspired and corrupted themselves to criminally acquire nuclear material and knowledge for one simple reason: to annihilate people and nations they do not like.

Their bogus claims that they want Iran to be self-reliant in producing fuel for its reactors, when most other countries import theirs, should be met with scoffs and sanctions because that same process can also be used to manufacture material for weapons of mass destruction.

Iran’s nuclear yen can only imperil the entire world under its current order, which one minute states, “We fundamentally reject nuclear weapons” and the next vilifies Israel with a shameless parade, calling its destruction “a national and religious duty.”

Clearly, it is time to hold this rogue nation accountable for being a leading spoke in the “axis of evil.”
