Iran’s Foreign Ministry said a U.S. official’s claim that the Persian Gulf country has enough nuclear material to eventually develop a bomb is “baseless.” “These are baseless talks that have a propaganda nature,” Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Hassan Qashqavi said.
Unlike nuclear powers Israel, Pakistan, and India, Iran has signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty, and is constantly being inspected. Claims that is is producing a bomb are propaganda designed to justify another monstrous aggression. Israel already has perhaps 300 nuclear bombs, and Pakistan and India have perhaps 40 each. Why no hysterical claims about them? Iran is being singled out for mass murder.8:19 am on March 2, 2009 Email Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
