Iran's lies exposed, that is the subject of this evening's "Talking Points Memo."
As "The Factor" has been reporting all week, Iran's nuclear weapons program has now reached critical mass. And worldwide conflict is very possible. Friday, President Obama, British Prime Minister Brown and French President Sarkozy revealed a secret nuclear weapons facility located inside Iran. That violates every U.N. mandate and proves the Mullahs have been lying for years.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Iran is breaking rules that all nations must follow, endangering the global nonproliferation regime, denying its own people access to the opportunity they deserve, and threatening the stability and security of the region and the world. It is time for Iran to act immediately to restore the confidence of the international community by fulfilling its international obligations.

BRITISH PRIME MINISTER GORDON BROWN: The level of deception by the Iranian government and the scale of what we believe is the breach of international commitments will shock and anger the whole international community. And it will harden our resolve.
Confronted by the serial deception of many years, the international community has no choice today but to draw a line in the sand.

But where exactly is that line? Next week, negotiations will begin with Iran. But obviously this is rogue nation that doesn't really care what the world thinks. Ahmadinejad threatened Barack Obama today saying, "He will regret his statement."
It is long past time for civilized nations to confront the Iranian terrorists in a dramatic way. If Russia and China do not join with America, Britain and France now, they will never do so. Friday, Russian and China issued mealy-mouth statements. It's quite obvious that Israel already has plans to attack Iran. And it's just waiting to see if draconian sanctions will be imposed on the Mullahs.
Those sanctions have to come soon, because Israel believes Iran will have a nuclear weapon within months. As "Talking Points" has noted, the situation is about as bad as it gets. Every human being on the planet will be affected if Iran is attacked. And if the Mullahs don't give up the nukes, terrorists will have access to them. So it's a desperate situation.
"Talking Points" believes President Obama must impose sanctions, perhaps backed up by a naval brigade of Iran. Again, this is horrible. Who wants the world at war? And any attack or blockage against Iran will galvanize Muslims against the USA. As we said last night, we should all be praying this situation gets under control. And that's "The Memo."
Pinheads & Patriots
As we may know, the actress Jessica Alba doesn't like me very much. She called me a dirty name once. But the other Jessica, Biel, seems a bit more level-headed.
She is climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa to help raise awareness for the need for clean water around the world. Instead of spouting gibberish, Jessica Biel is doing good things for the fame. She's a patriot.
On the pinhead front, actor Randy Quaid and his wife skipped out on a $10,000 California hotel bill. They were arrested in Texas, released on $20,000 bond each. So it's a big beef. It's a shame this stuff has to happen. But if they did it, the Quaids are pinheads.
