Iran Is In The Final Stages
Israel Is Threatening
The Left Is Asleep At The Wheel

From Agence French Presse, via the Pakistani Daily Times:

PARIS: Israeli Defence Minister Shaul Mofaz has told French lawmakers that Iran is at “the point of no-return” on building nuclear weapons, according to a transcript of his remarks to the National Assembly made public on Friday.
Mofaz, who warned openly in London this week that Iran would not be permitted to build a nuclear bomb, has in the past said that Israel has operational plans in place for a strike against Iranian targets. Mofaz told the French National Assembly’s defence commission that “he ardently hoped that a recourse to military action would not be necessary” in Iran, according the transcript of the Tuesday meeting.
But he said that to avoid this, there would have to be careful inspections aimed at removing any ambiguity about the existence of a military nuclear project.
Even if Iran recognised Israel’s existence, Mofaz said “the possession of a nuclear weapon by an extremist regime is not acceptable.” “The danger is great,” he said. “The possession of non-conventional weapons could allow Iran to carry out terrorist actions with complete impunity and destabilise the free world.” Iran’s Revolutionary Guards warned earlier this week that any attack against the country would be met with an “astonishing” retaliation.

Meanwhile, the Democratic Party is hard at work on an "astonishing retaliation" of their own:

"It is hard to say that something is legitimate when whole portions of the country can't vote and doesn't vote," Sen. John Kerry said on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday. On a day when Iraqis went to the polls in large numbers, Sen. Kerry said the elections should not be "overhyped."

The Democratic Party is truly imploding. It is no longer relevant in the slightest. History will one day heap shame on the Democratic Party, that they threw a temper tantrum against the March Of Freedom while Iran put the finishing touches on it's first nuclear weapon.
