ElBaradei Believes Iran Wants Nuclear Weapons Capability
International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei yesterday said it was his "gut feeling" that Iran was pursuing the capability to build nuclear weapons if it chose to do so, the New York Times reported (see GSN, June 16).
The United States and its allies have expressed concern that Iran's uranium enrichment program could support nuclear-weapon development, but the Middle Eastern state has described its nuclear intentions as strictly peaceful.
“It is my gut feeling that Iran would like to have the technology to enable it to have nuclear weapons,” ElBaradei told the BBC. “They want to send a message to their neighbors, to the rest of the world, ‘don’t mess with us.’”You monumental twit!
