Iran’s nuclear and political ambitions

According to an article this evening that appeared in WorldNetDaily.Com (WND),Tanzanian customs officials have uncovered an Iranian smuggling operation. It appears that Iran is transporting large quantities of bomb-making uranium from the mines in the Congo.

These mines provided the nuclear material for the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima sixty-one years ago.

"The smuggled uranium discovered by Tanzanian customs agents was hidden in [a] shipment of coltan, a rare mineral used to make chips in mobile telephones. According to the manifest, the coltan was to be smelted in the former Soviet Republic of Kazakhstan after being shipped to Bandar Abbas, Iran’s largest port."

In other developments, Haaretz.com has this to say:

A senior Iranian official admitted for the first time Friday that Tehran did indeed suppl[ied] long-range Zelzal-2 missiles to Hezbollah.Mohtashami Pur, a one-time ambassador to Lebanon who currently holds the title of secretary-general of the “Intifada conference,” told an Iranian newspaper that Iran transferred the missiles to the Shi’ite militia. [He] add[ed] that the organization has his country’s blessing to use the weapons in defense
of Lebanon.

Meanwhile, Fox News reports that:

Hezbollah launched its deepest rocket strike inside Israel to date Friday, launching three rockets that hit near a town 50 miles south of the Lebanese border, police said. Source: Fox News

Perhaps it is time to recognized the threat. Liberals stand by. Nuclear weapons and missiles do not differentiate liberal from conservative, Jew from Christian, or any [other] ethnic, social or sexual persuasion. We are in "deep kimchee" and those on the left along with their political pundits do not realize it.
