Iran's transparent sham

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Along with notables like Bush, Chirac, Fox, Lula, Mbeki, and Musharraf, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad addressed the U.N. General Assembly yesterday. He claimed that his country's nuclear program is "transparent" and "peaceful".

Hands up if you believe him.


In related news, the French have backed away from sanctions, undermining (along with Russia and China) the attempt to forge some sort of united front against Iran on the U.N. Security Council. The Independent: "President Jacques Chirac has broken ranks with the US and Britain by calling for the suspension of UN Security Council action against Iran during negotiations over its nuclear programme." (See also The New York Times.)

Hands up if you think the French are crazy.
