    'Very clear' signs of Iran sanitizing military site, Western diplomat says

    From MSNBC:

    U.N. nuclear inspectors displayed new satellite imagery on Wednesday indicating that some small buildings had been dismantled and other possible clean-up work undertaken at an Iranian military site they want to visit.
    One image from May 25 showed signs that "ground-scraping activities" had taken place at the Parchin facility, as well as the presence of a bulldozer, according to diplomats who attended a closed-door briefing by U.N. nuclear agency officials.

    If Iran's nuclear activities were truly within compliance of its NPT obligations, one very likely would not be witnessing the kind of activities described in this story. Given this latest development, I believe the operative assumption should be that Iran is engaging in illicit nuclear activities. Diplomatic and broader policy strategy should at least take into consideration such a scenario.

    it takes a special kind of evil to want to bomb millions of people back to the stone age. maybe you were being sarcastic, but I see far too many militant libertarians to give you the benefit of the doubt.

    For some satellite photos of Iran's activities:

    These activities are not the activities one normally witnesses around civilian nuclear facilities. How often does one witness such activity around European or U.S. nuclear plants? There is no benign explanation for them.
