Mullahs and Nukes

The last few weeks have been a bit busy, but the blog is back in full swing beginning now.

I can't help but to share this little treasure reported today on the National Iranian American Council website. At a briefing on November 15 titled “Iran-Iraq Symposium: Prospect of Civil War vs. Independent and Stable Iraq, The Iran Factor,” Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA) told an audience of approximately 40 Iranian Americans that “The Mullahs are more likely to use nukes against Isfahan [than Israel]. If they are losing power, they won’t hesitate to use their weapons."

The conference also featured former Congressman Dick Armey, Congressman Nick Lampson (R-TX), Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX), board members of the Iran Policy Committee and supporters of the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MKO), all of whom called on the United States to remove the MKO from the State Department’s list of Foreign Terrorist Groups (FTO).
