Sara Carter posted an article today about Iran’s uranium enrichment program. Iran is going to resume enriching uranium (as if they haven’t been doing that all along). So what is this actually about? It’s about the fact that Iran is taking it for granted that Joe Biden will be inaugurated as President on January 20th. Although there is a good chance that will happen, there is also a chance that it will not. Iran is betting on the former. Why does that matter to Iran? Joe Biden has already said he will renew the Iranian nuclear deal. Iran sees a Biden administration as wanting to get along with everyone and not rock the boat (as opposed to the Trump administration which seemed to enjoy rocking the boat). We should remember that at times rocking the boat is a really good thing. Iran (and a few other countries that don’t love America) see American under Joe Biden as weak and ineffective–talk but no action. They have drawn that conclusion on the basis of the Obama administration. If you want an advance picture of America under Joe Biden, please investigate the ‘global reset.’ That is the globalist plan for America that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be bringing to us.
The article at Sara Carter reports:
The nation of Iran said Saturday that it plans to begin the enrichment of uranium up to 20 percent at its underground Fordo facility “as soon as possible,” as reported by Fox News.
The action would bring Iran close to weapons-grade uranium—a dangerous measure for the West as relations between the Persian nation and America deteriorate. This Sunday mark’s the one-year anniversary of the killing of Qasem Soleimani, an Iranian major general with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, who was planning attacks on American targets in the region, according to U.S. intelligence officials.
…The International Atomic Energy Agency acknowledged the enrichment move Friday.
“Iran has informed the agency that in order to comply with a legal act recently passed by the country’s parliament, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran intends to produce low-enriched uranium … up to 20 percent at the Fordo Fuel Enrichment Plant,” the IAEA said.
Understand that as soon as Iran has a nuclear bomb and a reliable delivery system, Iran will begin using that fact as a threat against the Middle East and Europe. Iran is a country run by bullies who want to reestablish the caliphate that fell when the Ottoman Empire was disbanded. The goal eventually is a worldwide caliphate, but Iran is wiling to start in the Middle East and then expand into Europe.
Yesterday One America News reported that the Iranian Presidency, President Hassan Rouhani warned European partners in its faltering nuclear deal on Wednesday that Tehran will increase its enrichment of uranium to “any amount that we want” beginning on Sunday, putting pressure on them to offer a way around intense U.S. sanctions targeting the country.
This is called nuclear blackmail. It is the technique that Iran would have used when the limits on their uranium production ended as provided in the nuclear treaty. First of all, does anyone actually believe that Iran was following the rules of the treaty to begin with? Note that the treaty did not allow inspections of all probable uranium enrichment sites.
The article reports:
The hike will put the country above the limits set by the 2015 nuclear deal made with six major world powers. President Trump pulled out that deal, saying the country was showing no intention of abiding by the agreement.
Earlier this week, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani teased their latest move, threatening to violate the terms of the 2015 agreement.
“We will increase the cap to whatever level we deem is essential for us and to a level that we need, you must also know that if you do not fulfill all your obligations to us under the agreement and in the agreed time frame, then from July 7th the nuclear reactor will return to its previous activity,” Rouhani said.
Iranian state media said, the Ayotollah regime will officially make the announcement on Sunday.
The only way to end the danger of the Iranian quest to be a nuclear power is to increase the sanctions to the point where there is a change of leadership in Iran. Many of the Iranians who thought they were fighting for freedom in 1978 were very disillusioned by the government that followed the revolution. A free Iran would be considerably less dangerous to the world than the current totalitarian Islamic state.
Frank Gaffney, Jr., posted an article at the Center for Security Policy today describing what a good nuclear agreement with Iran would look like. Please follow the link to the article to read the details, but here are the basic points:
1. No uranium enrichment.
2. No plutonium-producing reactors.
3. Robust verification.
4. Questions must be answered about Possible Military Dimensions (PMDs).
5. Lift sanctions in stages in response to Iranian compliance.
6. Iran must curtail and agree to limitations on its ballistic missile program.
7. Iran must agree to end its meddling in regional conflicts and sponsorship of terror.
8. Iran must cease its hostility toward Israel.
9. Iran must release all US prisoners.
If these points were included, the agreement would work. An agreement that does not include these points is not worth the paper it is written on.
