These are my links for February 3rd through February 6th:

Many Democrats have high hopes for the Southwest in Election 2012 and some even think that President Obama even has a decent shot to move Arizona from Republican to Democrat in the Electoral College column this November. However, the president may have an uphill fight to achieve that goal as most voters in the Grand Canyon State disapprove of the way he’s done his job.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone poll found that just 41% of Likely Voters in Arizona approve of the way President Obama has performed his role. Fifty-six percent (56%) disapprove. Those figures are significantly lower than the president’s national ratings. They include 28% who Strongly Approve and 48% who Strongly Disapprove.

Graphic showing the potential range of the Iran’s Shahab-3 which has a similar range of 2,000 kilometres (1,350 miles) to the Sejil-2 missile. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says the Islamic republic has test-fired a new medium-range missile and insisted that there will be no climbdown over Iran’s nuclear programme

Why worry?

It is all for peaceful electricity generation, right?

Iran has expanded the number of centrifuges enriching uranium to almost 5,000 and this has made it harder for U.N. inspectors to keep track of the disputed nuclear program, according to an IAEA report seen by Reuters.

Friday’s restricted International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report also said Iran had increased its rate of production of low-enriched uranium (LEU) material, boosting its stockpile by 500 kg to 1,339 kg in the past six months.

Iran’s improved efficiency in turning out potential nuclear fuel was sure to fan Western fears of the Islamic Republic nearing the ability make nuclear bombs, if it chose to do so.

David Albright of the Institute for Science and International Security, a think tank that tracks proliferation issues globally, said Iran now had accumulated enough LEU to convert into high-enriched uranium sufficient for one atom bomb.

But this would require reconfiguring Iran’s centrifuge network, miniaturizing HEU to fit on a warhead – technical steps that could take 1-2 years or more — and would not escape notice of UN inspectors unless done at an undeclared location.

There are no indications of any such secret site.

Iran says it is developing a uranium enrichment industry solely as fuel for electricity generation.

Coming soon – Iran kicks out all of the nuclear inspectors and declares nuclear breakout capability.

Michael Ramirez on Barack Obama and Iran

President Bush, the European Union and the United Nations have been unable to contain Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

But, never fear, Barack Obama WILL talk to Iran President Ahmadinejad and we will be on the rim of a golden world.

Right.
