Stop this stuff. Right now.

Europe may offer Iran a nuke reactor
Light-water reactor seen as way to find path `of cooperation'

VIENNA, Austria - standoff over weapons European nations on Tuesday weighed adding a light-water reactor to incentives meant to persuade Tehran to give up uranium enrichment.

Whoever put the "standoff over weapons" in there after the dateline, stop it. Go to the back of the line. Hang your head in shame.

Here's the complicated part. You can't have a "standoff over weapons" unless you have some weapons. Real, actual, proven weapons. Otherwise, it's sort of like the "standoff over unicorns" going on even now over at Broadway and West Boulevard (jeez, that's a lot of blue lights). See, when you make stuff up about the Middle East, you're kind of like taking bread out of the mouths of paid professional liars. So you're not only a tool of the reactionary pond scum, you hate kids and Christmas too.

Seriously. Try to do better. Didn't we have an object lesson a couple of years ago in the sort of things that happen when news reports get careless about the difference between what's known and what's asserted about weapons programs?
