In a 'Surprise' Move, Iran

Closed a site to UN weapons inspectors. Who’da thunk it?

Everybody knows that Tehran is developing nukes, although some may choose to disavow knowledge for ‘diplomatic’ purposes.

There’s precious little likelihood than the West will launch a preemptive strike (for reference, consider the Clinton / Albright / Carter treatment of North Korea). That being the case, the worst thing that Tehran has to fear is that Secretary Rice will have to come back with more concessions.

Perhaps another couple of reactors, toss in a couple of Trident subs, more night vision gear for Hezbollah, bomb parts to help the ‘insurgency’ in Iraq….

The shopping list is only going to grow.

Update (8/23/06): We’re still threatening to talk ourselves to death while Iran works on the Bomb.
