It’s called peeing on somebody’s leg and telling them it’s raining. Typical U.N. bull****.

Iran is enriching uranium beyond the percentage needed for nuclear power plants. The only reason to do this is to get bomb grade material. The UN knows this, Obama knows this.

The UN and Obama are pissing down our leg and telling us it is raining.

The UN only has an accuracy rating of 10%, so reader beware.

The UN is pretty much like Obama. Whatever side they are on, it's the wrong side.

Imagine that the IRS performed an audit on your taxes. What do you think would happen to you if the results came back that they could “not reach a definitive conclusion on the subject”?

Gee, we don’t want to write a critical report ... because otherwise we would have to read words that are not politically correct.

And then the liberals claim “Well, the Pentagon said ...”

If they're confused, the UN will just take Iran's word for it. I thought Iranian scientists were inspecting the sensitive sites themselves.
