Exclamation Iranian President Wants To Openly Develop Nukes

And does that mean their intent on use as well? Apparently the "weird beard" Islamic leaders aren't so hot on the idea of "openess".

Quote:
VIENNA -- Iran's president wants to shed the nation's secrecy and forge ahead openly with developing nuclear weapons but is opposed by the clerical leadership, which is worried about international reaction to such a move, says an intelligence assessment shared with The Associated Press.

That view, from a nation with traditionally reliable intelligence from the region, cannot be confirmed and contrasts with assessments by other countries that view Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as relatively moderate on the nuclear issue compared to the country's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

But a blunt comment by Ahmadinejad last month raises questions. While repeating that Iran does not want nuclear arms, he openly reinforced its ability to make them, telling Iranian state TV that "if we want to make a bomb, we are not afraid of anybody."

That defiant statement fits the scenario laid down by the intelligence assessment shared with the AP, depicting Ahmadinejad as wanting to move publicly to develop a nuclear program.

Ahmadinejad is pushing "to shake free of the restraints Iran has imposed upon itself, and openly push forward to create a nuclear bomb," says the assessment shared with the AP. But Khamenei, whose word is final on nuclear and other issues, "wants to progress using secret channels, due to concern about a severe response from the West," says the report.

Thus the weird-beards' assertion regarding the reaction of the West.

They know what our reaction and that of Israel will be. Iraq found that out in the 1980's.

There is a major power struggle going on there which could break out into civil war. If the crazies win, people better be ready and willing to strike cause they will not hesitate.

Israel won't allow them to develop nukes. It's a matter of time before this situation comes to a head.
