Iran Denies Inspectors At Nuclear Site

Yahoo News reports:

Iran has turned away U.N. inspectors wanting to examine its underground nuclear site in an apparent violation of the Nonproliferation Treaty, diplomats and U.N. officials said Monday.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the confidentiality of the information, told The Associated Press that Iran's unprecedented refusal to allow access to the facility at Natanz could seriously hamper international efforts to ensure that Tehran is not trying to make nuclear weapons.

Meanwhile, Iran's supreme leader said Tehran will pursue nuclear technology despite a U.N. Security Council deadline to suspend uranium enrichment by the end of the month or face the threat of economic and diplomatic sanctions.

Gee, I wonder what the UN will do now. No doubt it will leap into action. I'm sure Iran's leaders in no way fear embargoes and sanctions, knowing they could just always buy there weapons from the French and Germans and sell oil to the UN.

I'll be waiting patiently for the US to do what it always does, and solve the worlds problems.
