My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

Tehran next?

Today at Varifrank, Frank Martin offers up some really interesting speculation/analysis concerning the news that Iran has restarted it's nuclear program.
The specter of Iran engaging in the creation of atomic power has had my attention for some time. To me, Iran has always been the real target of the war on terror. Forget about Afghanistan, Iraq or Saudi Arabia, Iran is the ‘home of the whopper’ when it comes to bile spitting anti-US, anti-Israel, anti-western governments and organizations. Iran is where it all started, for us anyway; you could make an argument that it all started with the Muslim Brotherhood in the 1920’s but for the US, it all started in Iran.

...Iran decides that now is the best time to “go nuclear”. Why? Why bring all that heat down on you from the UN?
Great stuff. You should read the whole thing.
