Daily Dictator

... and in a continuation of our earlier Noocleear Day festivities, it appears that Jim over at Gateway Pundit has beaten me to the punch yet again (Curses!) in pointing out that Iran's little tinpot dictator has announced that Iran has entered the nuclear age.

"Yes, we'd like to announce that we're selling doves cheap."

Is this announcement for real? Is it merely propagandistic hype? It's too early to say for sure—but at least the pictures are sure to be terrific! Stay tuned for more of today's Nuclear! festivities.Here are the photographs from today's official event. For photos of the "unofficial" government-supported pro-nuclear demonstrations, check out the other Noooooclear day article.

Iranian clerics greet each other after attending in a ceremony at Iran's nuclear enrichment facility in Natanz, 300 kms 186 (miles) south of capital Tehran, Iran, Monday April, 9, 2007. Iran announced Monday that it has begun enriching uranium with 3,000 centrifuges, a dramatic expansion of a nuclear program that has drawn U.N. sanctions and condemnation from the West. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said at a ceremony at the enrichment facility at Natanz that Iran was now capable of enriching nuclear fuel 'on an industrial scale.' Asked if Iran has begun injecting uranium gas into 3,000 centrifuges for enrichment, top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani replied, 'Yes.' He did not elaborate, but it was the first confirmation that Iran had installed the larger set of centrifuges after months of saying it intends to do so. (AP Photo/Hasan Sarbakhshian)

The somewhat-official motto of this blog is "No Amount of Abby-Jabby-Jad Photos Is Enough!" In light of that, I present to you an unabashed festival of truly inspired photos of my favourite little dictator:
