Powell Says Iran Is Pursuing Bomb
By Robin Wright and Keith B. Richburg, Washington Post Foreign Service
SANTIAGO, Chile, Nov. 17 -- The United States has intelligence that Iran is working to adapt missiles to deliver a nuclear weapon, further evidence that the Islamic republic is determined to acquire a nuclear bomb, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell said Wednesday.
H.L.: (Without a hint of Irony, and wondering why everyone started laughing when they heard him say it. )
"I have seen some information that would suggest that they have been actively working on delivery systems . . . . You don't have a weapon until you put it in something that can deliver a weapon," Powell told reporters traveling with him to Chile for an Asia-Pacific economic summit
He then stood there with a perplexed look on his face as the audience began chanting back: Its a wolf, Its a wolf
"I'm not talking about uranium or fissile material or the warhead; I'm talking about what one does with a warhead."
The audience continued to crazily chant "Wolf Wolf Wolf" and began throwing money at Powell. He had to duck a couple of times to avoid being hit by it.
Powell's comments came just three days after an agreement between Iran and three European countries -- Britain, France and Germany -- designed to limit Tehran's ability to divert its peaceful nuclear energy program for military use.
And less then 2 years after he got up on a stage and lied to the world about how Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, and if we didn't go in there and get them we would all be dead. Powell who has already gotten the boot from Master George, was trying one last time to get more soldiers and innocent civilians killed, because the 1100 soldiers, and 100,000 Iraqi citizens whose deaths he's also responsible for was not enough to satisfy his bloodlust.
"I'm talking about information that says they not only have these missiles, but I am aware of information that suggests that they were working hard as to how to put the two together," Powell said, referring to the process of matching warheads to missiles. He spoke to reporters during a refueling stop in Manaus, Brazil.
He had to go all the way to Brazil to give the speech because no one else believed him enough to let him near a stage
"Powell appears to be saying the Iranians are working very hard on this capability," Cirincione said. He said Powell's comments were striking because the International Atomic Energy Agency said this week that it had not seen any information that Iran had conducted weapons-related work.
Powell was then seen at the Airport in Rio D'Janeiro, trying to board a plane with a suitcase full of money. He then realized they don't have extradition laws down in Brazil, so he left the airport, checked in to the nearest hotel, called room service and ordered a bottle of Cristal Champagne, and a couple of hookers, thinking to himself 3 whores, are better then 1
Ah shit. Now I'm going to be late for work. Good thing they don't really care. seeya later H.L.
