A bad case of nuclear Iranophobia
By Pepe Escobar

As the climax to a leaking frenzy in Western corporate media that bordered on - literally - nuclear hysteria, United Nations inspectors at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) finally released a report essentially charging that Tehran had tried to design a nuclear weapon to fit in a missile warhead until as late as last year.

According to the report, Iran worked "on the development of an indigenous design of a nuclear weapon including the testing of components".

Besides the effort to redesign and miniaturize a Pakistani nuclear weapon, Tehran is also accused of trying to develop a covert
operation to enrich uranium - the "green salt project" - that could be used "in an undisclosed enrichment program".



All this leads the IAEA to express "serious concerns" about research and development "specific to nuclear weapons".
