It looks like the United States has intercepted some nuclear material headed towards Iran.
May 31 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. and its allies in a program to stop the spread of weapons of mass destruction prevented Iran from obtaining material for its nuclear weapons program within the past nine months, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said.
"The trans-shipment of material and equipment bound for ballistic missile programs in countries of concern, including Iran" was blocked as was the transfer of "equipment used to produce propellant" to a "ballistic missile program in another region" of the world, Rice said.
The Iranian Mullah's are probably not going to like this. In either case it appears that the U.S. continues to display "confidence" in the European-Iranian diplomatic talks, despite the fact that Iran has clearly stated in English that they will continue to develop their nuclear technology regardless of what the international community thinks.
While the world debates how do disarm Iran, it looks like Iran is trying to improve their tourism industry with help from Germany and Austria.
Tehran, May 30 (CHN) The Iranian Tourleaders Society is to hold for Iranian tourism staff training classes in Inont of Germany and IMC University of Austria.
The training will be targeted toward both the private and the governmental sector of the tourism industry as a complementary course for previous classes and seminars held.
They will first have to fend off the "nuclear issue" as that could pose problems as tourists generally do not want to travel to a nation that might potentially be on the verge of war. Despite this factor the Iranian regime seems to be encouraging
The latest of such blatant crimes happened last week in the Islamic Republic. The public witnessed a young 20 year old, Ali Ahmadipour, being murdered in the Karaj Metro station in front of the commuters. The killer Asgar Najafi, is a cleric and the director of the Law Enforcement Forces training, as well as the political deputy of the Moral Guidance department in the Law Enforcement Forces.
According to the eye witness accounts, Najafi put his revolver against the young victims temple. The young 20 year old Ali, his mother's only child, was holding a bag containing her medicine which he had just been sent to buy. He was shaking and afraid, pleading with the cleric to spare his life and let him take the medicine to his mom. Some people in the crowd dared and pleaded with the cleric to spare the young man's life. 'Let him go, don't kill him' those who dared, begged the cleric. Najafi however, oblivious to the pleas of Ali and the crowd, and true to his Islamic teachings about the worthlessness of a human life, was intent on showing what he could get away with. Perhaps Ali's desperate cries gave him even more pleasure in carrying out what he was about to do.
With the trigger pulled a boy lost his life, a mother lost her only child and an "enforcer of the law" lost his sense of right and wrong. With actions like these occurring the Iranian government has lost the right to question the people's loyalty towards the regime.
