    I don’t think it’s about “pooz” – at least leaving aside Iran’s current president.

    It’s about horrendous double standards. And about not telling the story as it is – the whole story as it is:

    “When Ayatollah Khomeini came to power and the Islamic Revolution, before the Iran-Iraq War, and I actually was present as he said this in Tehran. He said nuclear weapons are gifts of the devil and we will close them down. And all nuclear instillations, and they weren’t nuclear weapon instillations, they were just nuclear instillations for power generation, were closed down under his orders. At the height of the Iran-Iraq War in 1986, when Saddam was supported by Britain and the United States, and was using gas, a weapons of mass destruction, against the Iranians, the Iranian High Command came to the conclusion that he was using these weapons, and they reluctantly reopened the nuclear establishment in Iran as a direct result of our friend Saddam using gas and chemicals. Which in some cases were supplied by companies on the East Coast of the United States. That’s what put the Iranians in the nuclear game.”

    Pedestrian says it much better than I can.

    I shall add what really bothers me is:
    1- The “International community” doesn’t even address the disarmament issue.
    2- The same “International community” and it’s think thanks don’t bother to have a strong policy on alternative energies
    3- The very same “International community” would never refuse a lucrative deal – see above
    4- The “pooz” and you know what – are really nothing compared to the above, yet it is the only thing that the “International community” talks about!

    Speaking of double standards, here is a quiz
