Pass the popcorn....

Thirty-five years after the fact, Iraq plans to sue Israel for destroying its Osirak nuclear reactor.
Iraq plans to sue Israel over the 1981 bombing of the Iraqi nuclear site Osirak, the deputy speaker of parliament, Humam Hamoudi, said in a statement.

The announcement, which was reported on Wednesday, comes just days after the 35th anniversary of the attack. Iraq's parliament has been working on initial steps for demanding compensation from Israel for several years.

The 1981 attack was condemned unanimously by the UN Security Council in resolution 487, which noted that the site was approved by the International Atomic Energy Agency. The resolution said Iraq was entitled to "appropriate redress."
I wonder how they think they're going to get jurisdiction over a sovereign state that's not willing to appear in court. Hmmm.

"approved by the International Atomic Energy Agency" --- Is that the same IAEA which said that Iran's Fordow site (north of Qom) was actually making tractor engines and Islamic lingerie?

Wonder if Iraq can pump enough oil to pay for a counterclaim by Israel for the billions confiscated by Iraq from departing Jews in the late 1940s?
