Second Holocaust Countdown: 889 days

Continuing on the thread from last time, The Religion of Peace brings us a picture from Iran:

It appears as though there would be some domestic support in Iran for launching a nuke at the Zionists.

Meanwhile, former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton picked up on this blog's allusion to the 1930s:

"If the choice is them continuing [towards a nuclear bomb] or the use of force, I think you're at a Hitler marching into the Rhineland point. If you don't stop it then, the future is in his hands, not in your hands, just as the future decisions on their nuclear programme would be in Iran's hands, not ours."
In case you thought that providence in the form of technical glitches would help prevent a nuclear holocaust, think again:
Inspectors for the International Atomic Energy Agency have concluded that Iran appears to have solved most of its technological problems and is now beginning to enrich uranium on a far larger scale than before, according to the agency’s top officials.
Which means the IAEA will have to increase the words per minute for discussions.

A glimmer of hope that something will be done:
The United States yesterday called for tough international action against Iran after reports that international inspectors have concluded Tehran has made major technical strides in recent days toward processing nuclear fuel -- material that can power a reactor or an atomic bomb.
And this for protecting those divesting from Iran:
U.S. lawmakers on Wednesday introduced new legislation that would protect fund managers and state pension programs from shareholder lawsuits if they divest stakes in energy companies that do business with Iran.
And this from US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice:
U.S. President George W. Bush will keep a military option on the table as he seeks a diplomatic solution to the standoff with Iran over its nuclear plans, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said.

"The American president will not abandon the military option and I believe that we do not want him to do so," Rice said in an interview with Al Arabiya television, part of which was broadcast on Tuesday.
Plenty of upbeat talk.

Talk that can be heard over the top of the ticking clock that says '889 days'.
