Most do not know or realize Iran has an aging nuclear facility or that the US built it, ironic isn't it?

Iran's aging nuclear facility

Iran's aging nuclear facility

Atom's for peace was a program started by the US to build nuclear facilities for Pakistan and Iran. Rather ironic isn't it? The Tehran Research Reactor is an aging nuclear facility located in the heart of the Iranian capital. It was built by the United States as a nuclear research facility 40 years ago; it is now at the center of Iran's claims that it needs nuclear fuel for peaceful purposes only. The reactor makes radioactive materials for use in hospitals - for example in the treatment of cancer.

We gave them their start! We gave them their cover for their real goal of achieving nuclear weapons. 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 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. Nuclear program of Iran - atoms for peace Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I would have to assume this was after we overthrew the democratically elected President of Iran Mohammad Mosaddeq to install our ruthless puppet the Shah of Iran. We built and supplied Iran's first reactor because we thought we were in control. What the hell is wrong with us? That makes us personally responsible for the 1979 Revolution in Iran, the capture of our hostages, the disaster in the desert after a failed attempt to rescue them, the rise of the Revolutionary Guard, the protesters dilemma, the nuclear issue in Iran today, everything!

You know, I have long said that Iran’s civilian nuclear program is a cover for their nuclear weapons program. 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

You know from numerous discussions here that Iran is involved in every Middle Eastern country not just Yemen, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia where they have corrupted elections for Shiite interests in Iraq, backing rebels in Yemen, and instigating attacks on Saudi oil fields. Bush freed Iran to instigate far and wide and are even training Taliban on their border. Any new sanctions will only serve to worsen their instigation and cause them to cause chaos everywhere they can and further Bush's total Middle East breakdown. As powerful in death as life; remember Khomeini's Ghost

As I see it we have two options here. We either try to prevent nuclear weapons in the Middle East or we arm everybody. Think about it for a minute. Think of all the countries that have nukes and haven't used them. Why? Because they know once they pull the trigger they've then killed themselves as well. Even Pakistan has managed to keep these weapons out of the hands of radicals who might want to use them.

Man all I can see regardless of what we do is destruction as that is all they all seem to want!

Also interesting that BP (Beyond Petroleum, British Petroleum, Anglo-Iranian Oil Company) was the business interest being threatened with nationalization and on behalf of whom the British and US governments colluded to overthrow Mohammed Mossadegh in 1953 in the CIA Operation AJAX, resulting in the Shah's return to power; the creation of an oil consortium by which the British and Americans split Iran's oil 40/40 with Royal Dutch/Shell and Compagnie Francaise de Petroles receiving 10% each; the assemblage of the brutal intelligence apparatus SAVAK under the auspices of the CIA and Mossad; the marginalization of leftist elements in Iranian political culture; and providing inspiration for the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

The events in the Middle East were also connected to Central America where the CIA undertook their second government overthrow. Samuel Zemurray, owner of United Fruit Company, was convinced by his PR counsel, Edward Bernays, nephew of Sigmund Freud, that just as the Iranians had been under a threat of communist takeover as evidenced by the nationalization of the oil industry, so to was Guatemala as evidenced by agrarian reform. Operation AJAX was then used by the Director of Central Intelligence under Eisenhower, Allen Dulles, as a template for the CIA overthrow--on behalf of the United Fruit Company--of the democratically elected Jacobo Arbenz in Guatemala (Operation PBSUCCESS) a year later (1954), despite the protestations of Operation AJAX's leader, Kermit Roosevelt, who advised that similar operations should not be employed in the future unless their goals coincided with the will of the people.

The events in Guatemala also had a profound effect on an Argentinian who had been inspired by the agrarian reform taking place under Arbenz. According Hilda Gadea (Che Guevara's first wife):

"It was Guatemala which finally convinced [Guevara] of the necessity for armed struggle and for taking the initiative against imperialism. By the time he left, he was sure of this." (Kinzer 2007, 184)

Hi Jeremy welcome! Sorry it took me so long but I just saw your comment when I was looking for something. You know, every single time we interfere with another country it comes back to bite us in the rear.
