"Non-Aligned" Countries Back Iranian Nukes

From the Washington Times:

Anti-U.S. allies back Iran nukes
September 17, 2006

HAVANA -- Developing countries yesterday wrapped up a multinational summit with North Korea charging that U.S. threats drove it to acquire deterrent atomic weapons and Iran winning solid support for its nuclear ambitions.

Iran, Venezuela and Cuba joined North Korea in leading efforts to forge an anti-U.S. alliance. Summit leaders, in a statement on Iran, "reaffirmed the basic and inalienable right of all states to develop research, production and use of atomic energy for peaceful purposes."

They warned that any attack or threat against any nuclear facility used for peaceful purposes was a violation of international law.

North Korea took the opportunity to assail the United States for unilateral actions against individual countries and called for a revitalization of the 118-nation Non-Aligned Movement (NAM).

"The United States is attempting to deprive other countries of even their legitimate right to peaceful nuclear activities," said North Korea's second-ranking leader, Kim Yong-nam.

Mr. Kim blamed Washington for "threatening Korea using all sorts of maneuvers, accusing it of being part of an 'Axis of Evil.'"

He added: "Korea has nuclear arms as a deterrent to firmly guarantee the peace and security of the Korean Peninsula and the region."

The leaders' statement on Iran, released as the meeting ended, was an updated version of a document adopted in May at a NAM ministerial meeting in Malaysia.

They stressed that the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency found that all nuclear material declared by Iran had been accounted for.
(Except for the enriched, weapons-grade uranium which the IAEA found... Iran still hasn't explained how that was produced.)You know... it's almost as if there's an Axis of Evil in the world....

... or something like that.

(BTW, what's with journalists these days writing single-sentence paragraphs. It's like they don't have a basic grasp of English.)

And for all of those Lefty Moonbats who have cheered on Hugo Chavez the past few years (and we know who you are!), here's your hero with his new best buddy (who also happens to be a genocidal maniac who thinks he's the 12th Imam):

Here's what I find interesting. Bush's lefty critics say that there was never any relationship between Saddam's Iraq and Al Qaeda, one reason being that no cooperation could occur between Saddam's secular government and a bunch of fanatically religious muslims. But look what's happening at the "non-aligned" nations conference. It seems that fanatical muslims, such as Ahmadinejad (pardon the spelling) have no problem with allying themselves with non-muslims. If non-muslims are permissible allies, so long as they hate the U.S., then surely secular muslims, such as Saddam, would be acceptable as well.
