Hamid Namvar – 12/8/2005

In an under-reported interview, the head of International Atomic energy Agency, Mohamed ElBaradei, told the British daily Independent that if Iran acts on its threat to reopen its Uranium enrichment underground facility at Natanz, then Tehran could be only "a few months" away from a nuclear weapon after the plant begins its operation. Say what? Only “a few months”?

    Abuse ‘widespread’ in Iraqi prisons

    A US military doctor says US troops intervene when they can, but Iraqis run the jails.

    Abuse 'widespread' in Iraqi prisonsBAGHDAD AND CAIRO – After a US raid on a secret Iraqi government jail last month revealed some detainees were tortured and abused there, Interior Minister Bayan Jabr insisted abuse claims were exaggerated and that torture will not be tolerated in the new Iraq.

    US soldiers and some Iraqi officials disagree. They say not only is prisoner abuse widespread, but that much of it is carried out by Mr. Jabr’s subordinates. Efforts to bring the problem under control during the past year have largely been frustrated by indifference from senior Iraqi officials, they say.

    U.S. will suffer bigger defeat in Iraq than in VietnamTehran, Iran – The Supreme Commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) declared on Tuesday that the United States would suffer a greater defeat in Iraq than it did in its war in Vietnam.

    Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi told a gathering of senior military commanders in the north-eastern city of Mashad that a future Iraq would be in the hands of Muslims.

    Claiming that the U.S. was attempting to establish a world order in which only it would be a superpower, Safavi said, “America’s uni-polarised policy in the world has been met with failure”.

    Iran’s state television (IRIB) reported that the government has ordered a two day public holiday due to high air pollution levels.

    Well, Tehran’s air pollution, for many years has been the topic of discussion but what has happened suddenly that the pollution causes a two day holiday?

    It turns out that today is also recognized as the day of student uprisings in Iran On this day, it is customary that students all over the country gather and celebrate. But during the past few years, these gatherings have been quite troublesome for the government.

    On one hand we have to agree that this was a cleaver move. On the other hand this demonstrates to an observer how shaky things are for the Mullahs in Tehran.

    Plane plows into Tehran buildingBy Parisa Hafezi

    TEHRAN (Reuters) – A military plane carrying dozens of journalists crashed into a Tehran apartment block and exploded on Tuesday, killing at least 116 people, officials said.

    All 94 passengers and crew on the C-130 transport plane died, the Interior Ministry said. Several children, at home because schools were closed due to a smog alert in the capital, were among the dead in the building, witnesses added.
    The Tehran Coroner’s Office told the ISNA students news agency it had received 116 corpses. Twenty-eight people, some in critical condition, were taken to hospital.

    "I was sitting at home when the windows suddenly smashed and flames came pouring in," a woman in her fifties with cuts on her neck, told Reuters. "There was smoke everywhere."
