Trust but verify: Iran president says Era of nuclear weapons over, prove it!

Iran president: Era of nuclear weapons over

I knew I heard that before and from Turkey! 11/2009 Ahmadinejad: Era of nuclear weapons over However his actions prove otherwise! When I was a kid I learned to trust but verify. I believe you, let me see for myself! That works and in light of Ahmadinejad's rhetoric and Iran's past since 1979 the world can not believe what Ahmadinejad says and must be allowed to delve into Iran's nuclear interests.

You must first also consider the source! 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.[1] 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. 1953 atoms for peace

Reading the book by Con Coughlin titled Khomeini's Ghost - The Iranian Revolution and the Rise of Militant Islam while as usual not totally correct it certainly makes you think and put everything in its proper frightening perspective. Please look at the book review and decide for yourself. From Khomeini's response on his return to Iran after 15 years of exile to today's events it all makes sense and the world better be concerned as there is more than idle threats and braggadocio coming from Ahmadinejad. Khomeini's Ghost - The Iranian Revolution and the ...

A reminder: When asked by a journalist how he felt upon returning to Iran after 15 years in exile. Khomeini’s curt, one-word reply “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. I now believe it is!

IRG Ahmadinejad, the stolen election, the killing and imprisonment of the children of the Revolution, the violent crushing of all opposition, the clandestine nuclear program, It is all making sense, beware! Natanz, Qom, Isfahan, Bushehr, Natanz, how many more nuclear facilities? How will this end?

As this ratchets up instigated by the Basiji and the IRGC another reminder! You know how I feel about Iran's Revolutionary Guard Command, but now there are many pro Government citizens calling for the death of those against the current regime and the IRGC! Like most I believe the election was stolen. I originally though it had to be known right to the top but I do not think so. I now thing even Ayatollah Khamenei was duped about the stolen election. Some not all of the clerics have been dragged into bed with the IRG!

As you know, the IRGC was set up to protect the ruling authority after 1979 and are supposed to be controlled By Ayatollah Khamenei authority. I know Ahmadinejad and 2/3 of his first 21 member cabinet are ex IRGC members and that simply reinforces that I am increasingly led to think the IRGC has become the final authority not the Supreme leader.

The IRGC is in control of furthering Shiite demands around the Middle East! You know by no what they are doing in Yemen, Iraq, and everywhere they can in the Middle East. I now believe Khamenei is the power behind the crackdown but he is unknowingly enforcing a lie! Iran will not give up her nuclear weapons designs and will never give up power or efforts to dominate the Middle East. Ahmadinejad and the IRGC are the driving force and will not relent. Increasing sanctions will only work to defeat all the opposition has done.

You know, I have long said that Iran’s civilian nuclear program is a cover for their nuclear weapons program. You know that Arab leaders feel the same way. They fear a nuclear arms race and I can only conclude that knowing how far along Iran is and how they feel that they are hedging their bets and it is already under way clandestinely.

The Gulf Corporation Council “Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman. And the United Arab Emirates, who are all incidentally armed by us with advanced conventional weapons and technology and missile defense batteries all want the Middle East to be declared a nuclear safe zone. That as you know is DOA as neither Israel or the US will never agree to that. The centuries of acrimony and convoluted Relationships throughout the Middle East though I knew of it is mind boggling and worse than I thought so I invite you to read the report it is eye opening. ! Why Arab leaders worry about Iran's nuclear program | Bulletin of ...

I really wish the era of nuclear weapons was over but I am afraid that era will not be over until it is over!

The more things change the more they stay the same. We know there will never be a nuclear free zone in the middle east. Until all superpowers dump their nukes there will be no progress on that issue and we know that will never happen.

I agree, Israel who also broke the NPT to get a weapon will never agree with it, Iran will get nukes too, and then everyone else that can will!


I am of the belief that this madman from Iran will not stop at anything until he's got his nuke.

Will cost Iranians a bomb (pun intended) but he'll go for it. Reason? Besides insanity (his), it's all about fear. He fears (and loathes) Israel and so is preparing for MAD.

I hope someone gets rid of him before he finishes his nuke.

I'm not nearly as concerned with Iran as I am with Pakistan, the vendors of nuke secrets (to valued customer Kim Jong Il) and on the brink of collapsing. It could well be the Taliban who wind up with their nuke arsenal, not to mention their willingness to sell it even if the Taliban don't get it outright.

Demeur said...

Good points Roger but I think Pakistan is more concerned with India. I'd be more worried about North Korea as they'd cut off their own noses to spite their faces. The real issue there is if we can negotiate with Il's son Un. The Chinese tried some years back to get them to cooperate with no luck.

Hi Anna! I agrree he will not stop. That is why the election was stolen to keep him in power. The IRGC will not relent from their quest to dominate and this will end up in disaster!

Jollt Pakistan is concerning for many reasons. Sometimes I think our primary goal of being in Afghanistan is to protect P's nukes. I am very happy they got #2 and what it means. That is big!

an average patriot said...

DemeurIl's birthday seemed to focus on paving the way for Un. They never will but I would like to see them shrink that monstrous army a bit.

You know, Pakistan is concerned with India having too much influence in Afghanistan while we all acknowledge needing their help and cooperation. Because of "at the least" what was done in 48 that I am afraid will never happen.
