Boy. That struck me EXACTLY the same way. Just finished watching Pinhead-In-Chief on television and heard him repeatedly characterize Iran as going after nuclear weapons, despite their saying that they want, like so many other countries in the world, to have nuclear POWER plants. I may write that up separately, but because we live here where Comanche Peak is, I'm very interested in seeing how the rest of the world sees nuclear power, and in a lot of countries, they are pursuing it. (Whether I think that's a good idea or not isn't germane here). And a correlary question-how are those other countries that want nuclear power being monitored to make sure THEY aren't creating a nuclear weapon? Isn't it the IAEA? But IAEA is monitoring Iran-at least until yesterday, when Iran asked for a replacement monitor.
But you're right. If one is going to use the argument that BECAUSE someone wants to use nuclear technology for power, it follows that those same people want to make nuclear weapons, then the finger also points at the US.
