Is Iran really fooling anyone?

Can there really be someone who believes Iran at their word, or might it be more that the majority of people have become so nihilistic, that they just don't care, just don't want to be bothered, and therefore take no heed of headlines like ....

Iran doubles nuke enrichment capacity

TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran has doubled its capacity to enrich uranium by successfully executing the process with a second network of centrifuges, a semiofficial news agency reported Friday, sending a defiant new message to the UN Security Council.

Council members are working on a draft resolution that would impose limited sanctions on the Islamic republic because of its refusal to cease enrichment, a process that can produce fuel for a civilian nuclear reactor or fissile material for a warhead.

French President Jacques Chirac, meanwhile, expressed support for sanctions against Iran but insisted that they be temporary and reversible.

In a separate report on Friday, [The Iranian Students News Agency] quoted Ali Larijani, Iran's top nuclear negotiator, as saying his country's enrichment program should not hinder negotiations with the West.

But now you have our bad guys aping the heroic role...

Are things all reversed? i can almost imagine the Jihadis liking this video. Who are the fools? indeed.

Time to wake up. Hopefully you can help the youtube crowd in that direction. Good work again, Charles.
