Comic Relief à la Tehran

The situation surrounding the Iranian nuclear program is growing evermore critical. Some experts say that it’s a matter of months, not years, until the Islamic Republic manages to produce its first nuclear bomb, and as the time seems to be running out the international community is starting to contemplate further sanctions

The stakes are high for Ahmadinejad, and yesterday the Iranian regime even allowed “spontaneous demonstrators” to attack the Italian embassy in Tehran — quite possibly a “spontaneous” reaction to Berlusconi’s visit to Jerusalem last week, where he pledged Italian support for Israel in the face of repeated Iranian threats.

In this tense atmosphere, the Iranians apparently decided to try to relieve some of the tension with humor. I see no other way to interpret this news item from Press TV, the Iranian regime’s English language news service. If the report is to be believed, the Iranians have not started to enrich uranium in order to build a bomb.

They’re doing it to cure cancer.
