To paraphrase Lyndon Johnson on Walker Cronkite, if they’ve lost the Guardian, they’ve lost the western left.
Well … no, not really. They’ll never lose them. But a good question regardless:
For the time being, the wires are back in place at Isfahan, along with two IAEA cameras that stare down from high perches on either side. But the degree of international control is tenuous at best. The very fact that the machinery is humming at Isfahan puts Iran in contravention of UN security council resolutions, calling for all work related to uranium enrichment to be suspended…
[T]here is another huge question mark hanging over Isfahan and Natanz: why is the government in such a rush to enrich fuel, when it has no nuclear power plants in which to use it?
