I've Got a Bad Feeling About This

VIENNA, Austria -
Iran has turned away U.N. inspectors wanting to examine its underground nuclear site in an apparent violation of the Nonproliferation Treaty, diplomats and U.N. officials said Monday.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the confidentiality of the information, told The Associated Press that Iran's unprecedented refusal to allow access to the facility at Natanz could seriously hamper international efforts to ensure that Tehran is not trying to make nuclear weapons.

Meanwhile, Iran's supreme leader said Tehran will pursue nuclear technology despite a
U.N. Security Council deadline to suspend uranium enrichment by the end of the month or face the threat of economic and diplomatic sanctions.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran has made its own decision and in the nuclear case, God willing, with patience and power, will continue its path," said Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, according to state television.
Warmongers rejoice. You've got your October Surprise. To bad that in the face of a real threat, our Armed Services are stretched so thin that any sort of response is bound to fail. That ignoring the fact that any armed response was going to fail to begin with.

I better start running again. It'll make boot camp a lot easier when the draft rolls around...
