El Baradei, Syria: Israel at Fault for Destroying Reactor

Here's a story that's too funny to be true, or too sad to be invented. Mohamad ElBaradei, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) castigating Israel because by destroying Syria's atomic reactor in 2007 it made it hard to investigate whether it really was a reactor. Meanwhile, Syria says that the uranium traces the IAEA found at the site came from the weapons Israel used.

Did you follow that? The IAEA never had a clue the Syrians were building a reactor until after Israel destroyed it, which Israel shouldn't have done because that made it hard to find; and the Syrians explain that any incriminating evidence was put there by the Israelis.

Sometimes I tell myself being a news-and-politics junkie and blogger is a total waste of time. The world is so completely idiotic it's useless even to try and fix it; better to deal with other matters.
