Blix: Iran greater nuclear threat than Iraq was
Mission & Justice ^ | November 8, 2007 | Daniel Flitton

Former United Nations chief weapons inspector Hans Blix has warned that Iran’s nuclear ambition is more serious than was the case with Iraq in 2003. Dr Blix delivered the Sydney Peace Prize Lecture last night, saying he was still optimistic the international community could escape the threat posed by nuclear weapons.But he said that souring relations between the big world powers could raise long-term military tensions.

Wow, dredging up a fool.

Blix is the poster child as to why the U.N.
should be defunded forever.

He is a joke. Him and that Barbeire (?) are posters for why we should not be involved with the UN.

Geez, I hate to sound like a liberal, but the Amish community up the road is a greater nuclear threat than IRaq turned out to be.

Are you taking any meds for BDS, or is it terminal and you’ve lost your mind?

Do you know why there are no identifiable nukes?

Because those that Saddam didn't destroy, we did -- as it was in our best interests for the public at large not to know that we (and france) financed and assisted Saddam with his weapons technology.

4000 TONS of nuclear material was quietly removed from Iraq and now resides in Oak Ridge, Tennessee at Y-12. Maybe you missed that? It wasn't widely reported, but the transfer did make the local news in Chattanooga.....

That's because the IAF didn't blow up their reactor.
