My item for update purposes is Wat up w/ dat?.  Obama is making more progress there than with North Korea.
Yep, the NKons just seem to not want to get along. Seem to be going backward. China profits from their distraction of America. It seems that the NKons backtrack each time we get a new president.

Iran awaits Ayatollah's nod before building N-Bomb...

Pentagon eyes accelerated 'bunker buster' bomb...
 
Apparently the diplomacy is not working.

More likely those unnamed sources are trying to whip up a strike against Iran.  I don't see any real news in this Yellow Cake type of story.  Interesting story associations by Drudge, though. Could bunker busters could actually make a dent in Iran's nuclear program?  Or just provoke them into making the bomb for real and closing the Strait of Hermos.  Another motive to track down is that oil jumped to $72/barrel this morning ... is there a connection?

For weeks there have been stories about how close Iran is to an N-bomb. Now there is one that says they have finally all they need to make one. Interesting how much you chose to ignore that part of the headlines & articles.

It is not news that they are close to a bomb - that kind of story has been around for years.  Tangible evidence released by named sources who take responsibility for their claims would be news that would engender the kind of response that you and Drudge are trying to get from this.  I do expect these kind of stories to crop up more and more as hawks stir the cauldron.

wApo: ...

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 25 -- President Obama and the leaders of France and Britain blasted Iran's construction of a previously unacknowledged uranium enrichment facility and demanded Friday that Tehran immediately fulfill its obligations under international law or risk the imposition of harsh new sanctions.

"Iran is breaking rules that all nations must follow," Obama said, detailing how the facility near Qom had been under construction for years without being disclosed, as required, to the International Atomic Energy Agency. "International law is not an empty promise."

The new Iranian plant, the country's second uranium enrichment facility, is believed by U.S. officials to be part of a broad effort by Iran's leadership to pursue the ability to build nuclear weapons. Iran has repeatedly denied having any such goal, insisting that its nuclear program is aimed at generating electricity. U.S. officials said they believe the Qom plant is not yet operational but is intended to produce highly enriched uranium -- suitable for nuclear weapons -- and will be capable within months of producing enough material for at least one bomb per year.


...now how is anything Obama going to do in the way of nuclear disarmament going to affect Iran in a tangible way.  Do we just accept the mad man Ahmadinejad's word that it's all for peaceful use?

Well the news that they have not been honest with the IAEA, and have a secret facility certainly casts suspicion on their intent.  It's like they have been caught with their hands in the cookie jar.  Obama has announced that, quite dramatically, in advance of the upcoming talks.  Nice timing, no?

& ... is Iran's revolutionary guard floating something up the flag pole? ... or just milking possibility?
The day after Iran's first nuclear test is a normal day
