Iran is going nuclear, as announced by Iranian President Ahmadinejad yesterday broadcast live on CNN. Not nuclear weapons, mind you. It’s nuclear energy. And it will remain so for at least 10 years time even if Iran wanna to make it (Iran insist it does not). But why so much hype in international media around the uranium enrichment Iran has started producing?
See the mainstream world media and headlines and world politicians reactions: “Time for Strong steps over Iran”, says Condoleezza Rice. “World criticism mounts over Iran’s nuclear step,” a title from REUTERS. And no less than Israel most “liberal” newspapers doesnt want to be left behind in the blaming game “A nuclear Iran is a threat to the free world.” (Haareetz, 12/04/06)
I dont like seeing Iran going nuclear as much as I dont like the US, Israel, Britain, France, India, Pakistan, China, etc boast of with it. But, to single-out a country (which has just started making nuclear energy, not weapons), and blamed by countries who already made it and even used it to destroy half million of Japanese people are obviously a show of hypocricy, double standard and craziness in the highest level.
