World May Be Headed for Nuclear Destruction, ElBaradei Says

The George and Tony Capitalist Exploitation Brigade (a.k.a. Warmongers 'R' Us) are making the world such a safe place with their "War on Terrorism" (a.k.a. "War on Feedom, Democracy and Human Rights"), instead of less violence we have more violence and this time it could all go nuclear, doesn't that make you feel so super you just want to shag Big Gay Al up the batty? Our corporations are being allowed to exploit a lot of innocent people and one day it's going to turn around and bite us on the arse. It's like one enormous male-ego pissing-competition with intercontinental ballistic missiles, have we all lost our fucking minds people?

The head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog said on Thursday the world could be headed for destruction if it does not stop the spread of atomic weapons technology, which has become widely accessible.

In an opinion piece in the New York Times, Mohamed ElBaradei wrote that nuclear technology, once virtually unobtainable, is now obtainable through "a sophisticated worldwide network able to deliver systems for producing material usable in weapons."

Above all ElBaradei echoed President Bush's call in a speech on Wednesday for states to tighten up the control of their companies' nuclear exports to proliferators.

ElBaradei, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) director-general, said the world must act quickly because inaction would a create a proliferation disaster.

"The supply network will grow, making it easier to acquire nuclear weapon expertise and materials. Eventually, inevitably, terrorists will gain access to such materials and technology, if not actual weapons," he wrote.

"If the world does not change course, we risk self-destruction," ElBaradei said.
