  • Beeman: Letter from Iran
    • When I was in Iran last, a shoe salesman who was the son of a gardner explained to me in perfect (BBC) English how the GOP had used the gay marriage issue to fracture the Democratic vote. He had never set foot outside of Iran. I was flabbergasted.

  • China and Iran, Green Together
    • PS - the reason the Fukishima reactor failed was not due to the earthquake but due to poor management - there had been numerous warnings ignored. Reactors can and are built to be earthquake proof. There are very large buildings containing hundreds of thousands of people everyday built in earthquake prone zones all over the world. This is technologically quite feasible and non-engineers should not opine about such things so willy-nilly.

    • Um,Obviously no such thing! First of all Iran's nuclear program is not due to "Khameni's rationale" but started under the Shah with the encouragement and support of the US. You're sounding like a member of the Obama administration, with the talk of Iran "member of international community" stuff. Iran IS a membre of the international community. Iran already invests heavily in alternative energy sources and actually EXPORTS wind turbines (to Armenia) and has recently built one of the world's largest hydroelectric dams and has other projects ongoing but nuclear power is also part of any energy diversification program, as more countries around the world invest heavily in nuclear (yes, even in the Mideast) and secondly the technology has other (civilian) uses BUT most significantly, enrichment is Iran's sovereign right which is now at issue thank to the US pressures, and no country will abandon sovereign rights to suit external aggressors.
