Human beings will be happier - not when they cure cancer or get to Mars or eliminate racial prejudice or flush Lake Erie but when they find ways to inhabit primitive communities again. That's my utopia.

Contrary to What We Have Been Led to Believe,
Iran was not referred to the Security Council by the IAEA for Noncompliance
There was no “referral” and there will be no “punitive action” because there are no violations. “Rather”, as Prather ads, “the IAEA Board ‘REQUESTED’ that Director-General Mohamed El Baradei report to the Security Council”…”calling on Iran to-among other things-implement ‘transparency measures’”.
These “transparency measures” have nothing to do with Iran’s obligations under the NPT. They are additional demands made at the behest of the Bush administration (through strong-arm tactics with nations on the IAEA Board) that will force Iran to provide access to “individuals, documentation relating to procurement, dual-use equipment, certain military owned workshops, and research and development as the Agency may request in support of its ongoing investigations”.
...Why is the IAEA facilitating another war by placating the Bush administration instead of condemning its obvious belligerence?
