The Iran Fallout, About The Fallout (In Three To Eight Years)

The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency has said that Iran is three to eight years from developing a nuclear device, if it so chose to do so.

Mr Mohamed ElBaradei said there was no evidence that Iran was attempting to turn nuclear material into a 'weaponised' version.
It's especially telling that as the international community (when that phrase is used, it tends just to mean the US & the UK) is urging Iran not to seek a nuclear weapons programme, the UK is debating whether to push ahead with sanctioning new nuclear power stations for electricity generation.

In the UK, the majority of the public have been against the building of a new generation of nuclear power stations, with many members of parliament expressing their opposition to the plans. Its been suggested that the government have made up their minds to give these plans the greenlight, even though the proposals are at the consultation stage as the UK tries to reduce it's dependency on fossil fuels for power generation.

Tell The Truthiness ; The UK is asking Iran to not have nuclear weapons, when it decides to build a replacement nuclear defence system and push the case for an unpopular nuclear power generation programme. Double standards anyone?
