I Thought it was for Civilian Use Only

Army takes control of Iran nukes
Iran's new president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has placed the military firmly in control of his nation's nuclear program, undercutting his government's claim that the program is intended for civilian use, according to a leading opposition group.

  • Is that better or worse than the Mullahs controlling them? This is a very uncomfortable situation. I hope that we have resources devoted to supporting a popular resistance in Iran. It seems quite clear that Iranians want more democracy than they have. How can we help them?

  • This is indeed, an uncomfortable situation. As to whether it's better for the army or the mullahs' to control the nuclear material, is a tough question. I've read that Iran could be as far as 6 years from actually having nuclear missiles.

    But no one knows really. But it does underscore what any rational, objective, honest, and clear thinking person should have been able to deduce on their own; and that is that this talk about non-military use only was bunk.

    The younger Iranian population is very pro West from everything I see, but I think we are many years away from any civil war/revolt.
