"We have no belief in atomic bomb and will never pursue it"

So Says Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei

If he says it, it must then be correct right? This statement comes only one day after IAEA, the anemic nuclear watchdog arm of the United Nations that is certainly not wont to say much of anything substantive, said that Iran is working on a warhead capable of delivering a nuclear device.

This days after Iran resumed uranium enrichment, one key component in the making of a nuclear device. This months after a report from The Times of London that it had documents dated 2007 stating that Iran was close to completing work on a neutron initiator, the trigger for a nuclear bomb. And so it goes and goes and goes.

"We had said many times that our religious beliefs consider the weapons as symbol of destruction and deems them forbidden and prohibited. We have no belief in atomic bomb and will never pursue it."

Homeland Security, Job One

With Iranian actions speaking louder than words, those country's with so much to lose by Iran's potential nuclear capability have words, yet seemingly no action. Will the administration begin to back up it's "no Iranian nukes" rhetoric with action that stands a chance of stopping this nuclear train before it has left the station. Once it has left, there will be no turning back.
