Iran's Ambassador to the UN Mohammad Javad Zarif was on CNN today, speaking 
to the Security Council this morning against the resolution demanding that 
Iran cease enriching nuclear fuel. It was a very interesting and informative 
speech, which as Iran has done on previous occasions, categorically denied 
that Iran has any intention of developing nuclear weapons. Zarif skewers the 
hypocrisy of the Council, highlights the aggressive behavior of 
nuclear-armed Israel, discusses the Iran-Iraq war, and much more, all in a 
very reasoned tone (which of course got him nowhere; the resolution was 
subsequently passed, 14-1). All but the very end is online in two parts:
