Mullen WRT Iran and Nukes: FEAR FEAR FEAR! Gates: STFU, Moron.

This was mildly amusing:

Iran is not close to having a nuclear weapon, which gives the United States and others time to try to persuade Tehran to abandon its suspected atomic arms program, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Sunday.

“They’re not close to a stockpile, they’re not close to a weapon at this point, and so there is some time,” Gates said on NBC television’s “Meet The Press.”

Gates’ comments followed a televised interview with Adm. Mike Mullen, head of the U.S. military Joint Chiefs of Staff, who told CNN’s “State of the Union” that he believed Iran has enough fissile material to make a nuclear bomb.

We’ve been through this over and over and over these last few years. If people want to worry about Iranian actions, I suggest that they look at Iran’s arresting foreign reporters on bogus pretexts before they look at trumped-up garbage by the “nuke Iran first” crowd.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
