North Korea weapons aircraft 'was heading to Iran'
I know many people past present and future see the US as the worlds biggest threat to peace and under Bush I certainly agreed with that. That said I use to think Russia was our biggest concern in moving peacefully and successfully into the future and sometimes China. Since 9/11 I thought of the main threat as being from the so called terrorists and militants.
Watching what Iran is doing to her own people who only want a "pure" Islamist State and what they are doing in Iraq and Yemen trying to get Shiite dominance in the middle east, now finding out about these weapons I am believing it is Iran and the entire world should be concerned and has an interest in this.
On top of all the instigating Iran is doing in every instance I am very concerned with her desire for nuclear weapons, her willingness to use them, and the fact that we gave Iran her nuclear start in the 50s. The nuclear program of Iran was launched in the 1950s with the help of the United States as part of the Atoms for Peace program. The support, encouragement and participation of the United States and Western European governments in Iran's nuclear program continued until the 1979 Islamic revolution that toppled the Shah of Iran. We are so concerned about Pakistan and Iran today in regard to nuclear abilities and nuclear weapons and security. I was blown away to find out that we built the first nuclear Reactors in both Iran and Pakistan. Iran's nuclear program
A reminder: As you know, when asked by a journalist how he felt upon returning to Iran in 1979 after 15 years in exile. Khomeini’s curt, one-word reply was “nothing” Whoa! From day one of his return to Iran Khomeini expressed no love for Iran only a love of the atom bomb. The drive even then was to possess a nuclear weapon though that desire is still denied until Iran can get their hands on one.
I have tried to give Iran the benefit of the doubt when they say their nuclear desires are peaceful knowing they could use nuclear power as an energy source for their growing population. I have always asserted that perceived need could be cover for the real goal of developing a nuclear weapon.
The current regime in Iran continues to up the ante inside and outside of Iran with militarism and nuclear concerns. They are antagonizing Israel, the US, and others in their quest for war to unite their country! Iran is not going to settle for world peace but instead inside and out they will settle for nothing less than dominance and will destroy the world to get it!
