Iran's uranium

The traces of enriched uranium found in Iranian centrifuges were contamination left from when the Pakistani's used them for enriching uranium.
The centrifuges were then sold to Iran on the nuke black market.

Tests by the UN nuclear watchdog appear to confirm that traces of weapons-grade uranium found in Iran came from abroad, reinforcing Iran's assertion it does not seek atomic weapons.

We should bomb them anyway because that is the American way. :biggrin:

Excusme,, have you seen the world lately?.. If saved a couple of live doesn't give me the right to kill others.... You are omiting a looots of things here....


Ok let me continue with what i was saying before....

The us has tested biological weapons on his own population, it had the intentions to blow civilian airlines from cuba and blame it on castro, they use torture, they have stolen land to mexico, they supported noriega, they are suporting dicator of ubekistan who boils his own people alive, They are the number 1 polluters in the world, they suported and helped a dictatorship in my country who killed 30.000 people, they invaded irak based on lies, they impose economic policies around the world. just to destroy entire countrys economicaly... they have no care for the enviroment.. They created countrys like panama, just to be able to control them more easy.

And all that is justified becouse?????....... they did a lot of good thinks???? like what?

edit: I don't remember any trial where the acused has been exonerated becouse they did a lot of "Good things", if a crime has been comited it has to be punished.....
It's not my intention to exonerate the US. I do believe it has done harm as well, as I mentioned in my previous post. I understand your viewpoint and respect it, but I don't agree with all the arguments you gave. For one, I agree with the invasion of Iraq (I won't go into that now). Second, could you please specify a link which details how the US used biological weapons, as I have never heard of that. Third, to what torture in particular are you referring to? The Abu Ghraib scandal and accounts of torture in Guantanamo are definitely lamentable, but we should not act like the US is the sole nation to torture its prisoners. Finally, being the major pollutant in the world is an inevitable corrolary to being the world's leading supereconomic power.

Smurf, are you asking for my sources? I have said nothing that needed evidence.

Mustard gas was not the only biological weapon employed.
In 1931, Dr. Cornelius Rhoads, a government agent under contract
with the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Investigations, began
infecting men, women and children with cancer cells. Later, as head
of the U.S. Army Biological Weapons division,

http://www.globalsecurity.org/wmd/systems/bw.htm
Cities were unwittingly used as laboratories to test aerosolization and dispersal methods; Aspergillus fumigatus, B. subtilis var. globigii, and Serratia marcescens were used as simulants and released during experiments in New York City, San Francisco, and other sites. Concerns regarding potential public health hazards of simulant studies were raised after an outbreak of nosocomial S. marcescens (formerly Chromobacterium prodigiosum) urinary tract infections at Stanford University Hospital between September 1950 and February 1951, following covert experiments using S. marcescens as a simulant in San Francisco.

Last year, The Wall Street Journal reported that in the 1950s, the Army sprayed Panama City and Key West with S. marcescens, the same bacteria that later spurred a San Francisco family to sue the government. In that case, retired pipe fitter Edward J. Nevin checked into a hospital with chills, fever and general malaise in 1950 and died three weeks later from what doctors said was pneumonia caused by exposure to the bacterium S. marcescens

James Druckemiller, a former junior medical corpsman aboard the Power, says his medical problems began that year, too. In 1965, he developed a lesion on the bottom of his right foot that had to be removed. A year later, he had another lesion removed from the back of his head and developed bacterial pneumonia and a 105-degree temperature. This was his first of several bouts with the disease.

According to Druckemiller, who lives in Topeka, Kan., many of the sailors aboard his ship developed sore throats and respiratory problems that continue to this day. Many developed a host of other ailments, ranging from skin conditions and cysts to heart problems, scarred lungs and cancer. During the time these sailors were getting sick, they were aboard ships involved in secret biological and chemical tests about which they didn’t learn until 40 years later.

When i say torture i mean torture in general, in gitmo, in egipt, in irak, and in us backed dictatorships.

So, america model for the world is simply imposible, becouse economic growth (The only solution capitalism has to offer to solve the poverty problem) directly leads to the destruction of the enviroment thus making the world hostile to living beings. What can i do with a millon dolars if there is no air or water?

Anyway, i am from a country wich is not a "Supereconomic Power", why do i have to accept Usa pollution to the world?

The word you are looking for is polluter although I tend to agree more with your faux pas.

It naturally follows that the bill for the pollution should be paid BY the polluter.

After all, if two cars are zipping down the street and one tosses out a coke can, you certainly don't fine the guy in the other car. :rolleyes:
