Prison Break

The Ayatollah Hossein Khomeini, the grandson of Ruhollah Al Khomeini - yes, that Khomeini - said in an interview last week that Iran "would be powerful if freedom and a democratic society were being developed there, rather than weapons and the bomb." Others in Iran aren't happy about the country's nuclear ambitions either, if the recent rioting by university students against the nuclear program is any indiciation.

Moreover, Khomeini is calling for President Bush to stage a big bust-out (emphasis mine):

About his call for U.S President George W. Bush to occupy Iran, Hossein Khomeini clarified: "freedom should be promoted in Iran in any way possible, and it is irrelevant whether this freedom comes as the result of domestic or foreign developments. If I were imprisoned, what does it matter? It is in my interests that someone come and break me out of that prison."
Sheesh, doesn't Ayatollah Grandkid know that Bush is only after oil, oil, oil, and not freedom & democracy?

Meanwhile, the Iranian government continues to thumb its nose at the UN, brazenly admitting what the IAEA had recently said it suspected - that Iran is accelerating its uranium enrichment program, and is "pursuing a plan to have a 3,000-centrifuge cascade" in operation soon. But Iranians shouldn't hold their breath waiting for the big prison break to happen - on the contrary, some say it's back-to-the-future time, and we are replaying 1994 all over again.
