The University of the Bleeding Obvious

From UBO comes this gem from Pakistani President Musharraf when he was asked about Iran's nuclear ambitions:

In an interview with Germany's Der Spiegel news weekly published Saturday, Musharraf was asked how Iran could be dissuaded from trying to make a nuclear weapon.

"I don't know. They are very anxious to have the bomb," he was quoted as responding.

Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi told reporters Sunday it was unlikely Musharraf made the comment, but called for an explanation from Islamabad.

Iran wants an explanation?

Well let me give it a try:

Musharraf spoke the truth.

Perhaps I'm jumping to conclusions, but the bleeding obvious explanation would seem to be the correct one.

Europe, take note.
