Seriously, where do these people get off? Later in the story, Condoleezza Rice argues that "The world does not believe that Iran should have the capability and the technology that could lead to a nuclear weapon." I guess this is true... if you remove all fundamentalist Muslims from "the world." But guess what? They're still a part of the world, much as some of us might like to change that.
The U.S. -- and the international community at large -- has screwed up by failing to put any teeth into the U.N.'s nuclear regulatory agencies. Now we have to live with that. (Never mind that the U.S. has vested interests in not playing nice with nuclear treaties, but I guess we're immune or something.)
Sorry this was so rambling and incoherent; these people make me mad.
