Iran official threatens to hide nuke program
The headline writers at CNN are idiots, honestly. When the president of Iran says:
- We’re going to hide our nuclear program, which we’ve been doing for 12 months now, and
- We’re going to start giving nuclear technology to failed states.
What do you think the headline should be? Apparently, #2 isn’t scary enough for the CNN editors. "Oooh, they’ve said they’re going to hide it, now that’s a GOTCHA. Run it on the website!"
But it’s scary enough for me. We really need a new global framework for nuclear regulation. The existing framework does not work in a "cat’s out of the bag" world that we live in today.
We are so screwed.
