Economic compensation pledged by the United States, South Korea, Japan, China and Russia in return for disabling its nuclear facilities by the end of 2007 "is being delayed," said Hyon Hak Pong, vice director-general of North Korea's Foreign Ministry, according to footage from broadcaster APTN.
"To cope with this, we have no option but to adjust the speed of the disablement process," Hyon said.
It looks as though what was widely touted as a foreign policy coup for this administration may turn out to be a major embarrassment.

Ci-dessous la traduction du texte intégral du rapport du Directeur Général de l'AIEA, Mohamed ElBaradei, sur le programme nucléaire de l'Iran, remis au Conseil des Gouverneurs de l'AIEA le vendredi 22 février 2008 et publié en anglais sur le site iranien Tehran Times

It's very nice that the EU has made this statement, but what are they going to do to convince Israel and the US that military intervention would be a really, really bad idea?Mp>And what is Russia going to do to protect its geopolitical and financial interests in Iran, which are considerable, if such an attack does take place?
The failure to reach agreement appeared likely to trigger new European and UN sanctions and to raise tensions in the Gulf. An Iranian rejection would also represent a rebuff to conciliatory moves from
Threats are NOT 'Conciliatory gestures.' What looked like a possibility to avoid yet another disastrous war for the US is apparently only a repeat of the cheap theatrics the US engaged in just prior to the invasion of Iraq, where the US tried to look like it was searching for a peaceful solution even as the bombs were being loaded onto the airplanes.
The tip off is Condi's statement that

The George W. Bush administration has long pushed the "laptop documents" -- 1,000 pages of technical documents supposedly from a stolen Iranian laptop -- as hard evidence of Iranian intentions to build a nuclear weapon.

There is no other way to spin this;
History is repeating itself, and because history does repeat, no doubt Bush and his advisers are thinking that if they can start a major war, they will be off the hook. Once more the American people will silently endure their hardships for the war effort, silence their complaints, and accept with dignity yet another enforced decline in their standard of living.
For this, to save themselves, Bush and his advisers are willing to risk turning a regional war with Israel's enemies into a wider war, possibly a global war with Russia, possibly with China, possibly with the rest of the entire world as the globe realizes that the United States has become this century's embodiment of the Nazi empire.
It is for this reason that President Bush scarcely missed a step when the National Intelligence Estimate proved

US President George W. Bush on Tuesday appeared to distance himself from what he called an "independent" US intelligence finding widely seen as dousing the likelihood of armed confrontation with Iran.
"I defended our intelligence services, but made it clear that they're an independent agency; that they come to conclusions separate from what I may or may not want," said the president.
Bush characterized this as an"Independent"
On what planet does he live, and is he absolutely unaware that the NIE is generated by US governmental agencies?

Also, notice how the media says
THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT THEY EVER HAD A NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM!!

Whether or not Bush manages to plunge the world into a new dark age may depend upon which version of the recent US/Iran confrontation is believed.

One dares not think of the consequences to world peace if Bush had embarked upon this tour of the middle east with a shred of credibility, a modicum of political capital among every Middle Eastern capital but
Folks, here is the "sitch".
Bush knows that the economy is about to unravel, and he also knows that the people will blame the government for the melt-down and rightly so, seeing all the money that the government borrows without ever really thinking about how it will be repaid. The Social Security Trust Fund has been looted (along with many others such as the Native American Trust Fund and various Federal Employee Pensions). The Federal Reserve is just printing up new money as fast as it can to keep the liquidity up, but the problem has never been liquidity but solvency.
So, the big kaboinga is right around the corner and this is a major reason WHY Bush is pushing so hard to start a new war, because throughout the history of the United States, the government has ALWAYS distracted from domestic economic blunders by distracting the people with a major war. Most of us recall the connection between the Great Depression and WW2, but few recall that the

Despite the official and media portrayal of the incident in the Strait of Hormuz early Monday morning as a serious threat to U.S. ships from Iranian speedboats that nearly resulted in a "battle at sea", new information over the past three days suggests that the incident did not involve such a threat and that no U.S. commander was on the verge of firing at the Iranian boats.
