The U.N. nuclear watchdog chief Mohamed ElBaradei is warning no military action should be taken against Iran, and that threats of war are premature and counterproductive.
ElBaradei, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said there is no evidence of ongoing prohibited nuclear or nuclear-related activities in Iran.

  • Mohamed ElBaradei: “I repeat: we have not seen any undeclared facilities operating in Iran, we have not seen any concrete evidence that the Iran program is being weaponized. We have not received any information to that effect. So, I haven’t heard any other information, to the contrary. So while we are still concerned about the nature of the Iranian program, we should not… I do not believe, at this stage, that we are facing clear and present danger that requires that we go beyond diplomacy.”

ElBaradei also urged the world to remember what happened in Iraq before considering any similar action against Tehran.

Last time, the IAEA was right, but the US would not listen. A million are dead. Now the President sets the traps that may lock us irretrievably into another slaughter while Democrats bluster and pose.

Are we—Democrats and Republicans alike—incapable of moral foreign policy?
