President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday said that the Iranian nation is determined to defend its right for access to nuclear technology and will not let the enemies deprive it of such a legal right, and therefore removed the seals on it's nuclear plants.
Problem is that he is already using the word enemy. This is a man who doesn't think that the holocaust even happened, and that the state of Israel should be moved to Alaska or Eastern Europe. Is the enemy he is talking about Israel, USA, UK or New Zealand? I am sure that the first 3 are on his list, but with Nuclear power this guy could and probably will cause havok.
The President of Iran was born on October 28th 1956, Ahmadinejad was the mayor of Tehran from May 3, 2003 until June 28, 2005 when he was elected president. He is widely considered to be a religious conservative with Islamist and populist views. Ahmadinejad was a civil engineer and an assistant professor at the Iran University of Science and Technology before his mayorship. He seemed to be good news for the west when he was elected, but now the power may have gone to his head, and he is quickly making a mockery of himself internationally with his proposterous remarks and desire to get the nuclear power ramped up and more than likely weapons in his war chest.
With the Prime Minister of Israel Sharon in hospital and unlikely to return to power, I am concerned. It is relative common knowledge that if intelligence was proven that Iran was preparing nuclear weapons, that Israel would go in and destroy the manufacturing of the weapons as they did in Iraq on 7th June 1981. Will the next PM of Isreal have the balls to go in and continue with PM Sharons mandate? I hope so.
The UN is looking at the Iran nuclear problem right now, but knowing their track record it may take a while for them to get tough......
Lets hope this gets settled peacefully, but I am thinking that Iran may be the next hotspot to target.
