    A year later none found.

    I'll bet the Iranians thought he had WMD's because they've been working on their own program.

    Or maybe they learned form Pakistan and North Korea that the best way to keep from being invaded is to have nukes?

    Sure, and the war with Iraq where their army got WMDed had nothing to do with it. Keep the blinders on.

    I see. What exactly are you talking about?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Actually, the NK nukes have very little to do with why no one wants to invade that country.

    I know why no one does, do you? (I'll give you a hint, it's a number, about 19,000,000)

    You mean the one nearly 30 years ago?

    Or could it be that a certain western nation invaded two middle eastern countries in the last decade, has nearly 200,000 troops based in every country on its borders and is continually rattling sabres in her direction?
    Just like it was doing in North Koreas direction. Until North Korea lit off a nuke. After that it's gone strangely silent....

    Nobody wants to do anything to North Korea. That's the point.
    Hell, Pakistan can shelter OBL, route terrorists to Afghanistan to kill your countrymen, and not a bloody peep about invasion.
    I wonder why.....

    In other news, Ahmadinejad says that Iran can now make biodegradeable penises for all lesbians.

    A repressive regieme, Iranian leaders are evil yada yada yada. Seems to me I heard the same schtick before. I was wondering then, just as I wonder now, where all of that empathy suddenly came from.
    Because nobody really gave a damn until the WMD crap turned out to be just that.
    And some of these comments are startlingly familiar....

    Good, now he can make progress triggering the arrival of the 12th imam.

    This does not mean this regime will go out with a whimper. During these past six months, the Iranian regime has undergone a dramatic change of character. It has eliminated all pragmatic forces within its ranks. For religious support, they rely on a small but extremely radical group of ayatollahs such as Mesbah Yazde and Ahmad Janati. These are apocalyptic worshippers of the twelfth Imam, or Mahdi. Understanding this group is of the utmost importance for Western policymakers. The Mahdi is viewed as a Messiah-like figure whose return will bring peace on Earth. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad frequently refers to him in his speeches, including those held before the United Nations. While most twelver imam Shiites believe that the Mahdi will appear by his own accord, this radical group believes that his appearance can be triggered by creating the apocalyptic conditions necessary for his emergence. Iran's nuclear weapons program must be seen in this context. Ahmadinejad and the radical fringe group to which he belongs see themselves as the army of the Mahdi in his final jihad.
