Will the One also endorse our right to develop nuclear energy?

The One is in favor of nuclear energy. He has expressed this many times in the past, and even supports Iran's right to develop nuclear energy (he reiterates the same in a BBC interview as reported by WaPo). Since RP's environmentalists are so so enamored by the One, as if he cannot say nor do wrong, they are not protesting the One's stand on nuclear power, and instead whine about a plan to rehab the BNPP or to make new ones. I dare the environmentalists to protest the One or dare the One to endorse our right to develop nuclear power -- besides, we are not producing nuclear weapons, unlike Iran and North Korea.

Yes? Yes? I don't think so. RP is of no significance to him.

Obama also said that it was unfair that "some countries have weapons that others do not" and proclaimed that "any nation -- including Iran -- should have the right to access peaceful nuclear power if it complies with its responsibilities under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty."

Wait -- how about us? If a fanatical holocaust denier with messianic delusions can have nuclear power, can't the U.S. at least build one nuclear power plant every 30 years?

I'm sure Iran's compliance will be policed as well as North Korea's was. Clinton struck a much-heralded "peace deal" with North Korea in 1994, giving them $4 billion to construct nuclear facilities and 500,000 tons of fuel oil in return for a promise that they wouldn't build nuclear weapons. The ink wasn't dry before the North Koreans began feverishly building nukes.

But back to Iran, what precisely do Iranians need nuclear power for, again? They're not exactly a manufacturing powerhouse. Iran is a primitive nation in the middle of a desert that happens to sit on top of a large percentage of the world's oil and gas reserves. That's not enough oil and gas to run household fans?
