IAEA chief threatens to resign over Iran

By Michael J.W. Stickings

According to The Jerusalem Post, citing a Reuters report, "International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Mohamad ElBaradei, will quit his position in the event of a military strike on Iran."

"I don't believe that what I see in Iran today is a current, grave and urgent danger. If a military strike is carried out against Iran at this time... it would make me unable to continue my work."

Of course, the fact that Iran doesn't post "a current, grave and urgent danger" won't stop Bush from launching a military strike. It's what the warmongers want, both within his administration and among the neocons, those who continue to promote the delusional dream of global American hegemony for the 21st century. Reality didn't stop them from invading and occupying Iraq and it won't stop them from attacking Iran.

ElBaradei might want to start drafting his letter of resignation sooner rather than later.
