Iran Goes Nuclear, Literally

Saturday, August 21, 2010

Iran, an Islamic nation led by the anti-Semitic radical, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who described Israel as a “fake regime” that “must be wiped off the map, opened its first nuclear power plant at a ceremony on Saturday.

Attended by senior officials from Iran and Russian, the ceremony marked the start of the transfer of enriched uranium fuel rods from a storage site to a plant near Bushehr, in southern Iran city, and the beginning of a fully functional nuclear plant.

The event is one sure to worry many Americans and Israelis alike concerned the civilian the program will eventually lead to Iran building a nuclear bomb capable of reaching Israel.

American diplomats working for the Obama administration had encouraged Russia to not assist Iran with its nuclear ambitions but the United States has virtually no influence in such pan-national matters under the aegis of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Israel, condemned the launch of the Iranian reactor with the following statement:

“It is totally unacceptable that a country that so blatantly violates resolutions of the (United Nations) Security Council, decisions of the International Atomic Energy Agency and its commitments under the NPT (non-proliferation treaty) should enjoy the fruits of using nuclear energy.”

President Obama, enjoying on his sixth vacation this year, had no comment on the Iranian reactor but, Darby Holladay, of the U.S. State Department pronounced the reactor safe and posed “no threat” to anyone’s security.

Meanwhile, Britain’s Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt expressed concerns:

“We have always respected Iran’s right to develop an exclusively civil nuclear power program. The problem is Iran’s continued refusal to satisfy the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) and the international community that its work on uranium enrichment and heavy water projects are exclusively peaceful.”

Personally, I hope August 21, 2010, isn’t the day Americans and our allies look back at in horror, asking, “Why didn’t the we act militarily to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear nation while we still had the chance?”

    Why would a country, so rich in oil, need nuclear power if not to build weapons?

  2. R.J. says:

    I never understood that either but any chance of taking out Iran went out the window when Bush invaded Iraq.

  3. Adirondacky says:

    Iran is a brutal, Sharia-Muslim theocracy, run by a nutcase, who threatens its neighbors. If ever a nation needed a nudge in the correct direction, it’s Iran in 2010. But instead, our military is in Afghanistan. I fail to see the logic or the wisdom.

  4. feminazi says:

    A few years ago, the Israeli air force bombed a Syrian plant suspected of having nuclear ambitions. It was the appropriate response, in my view. I am more than a little surprised the Likkud government of Netanyahu did not stop Iran from becoming nuclear. Perhaps, they were afraid of Russia? Or, did the Obama White House pressure Israel to sit on its hands?

  5. Brigadoon says:

    Ahmadinejad is a lunatic. I don’t understand why the US State Dept. gives him a Visa to address the UN and tell the chamber “Iran doesn’t has no gay people” and the “Holocaust never happened.” He’s clearly insane and extremely dangerous.

  6. Pechanga says:

    So, Iran claims it has no interest in nuclear arms, but refuses to give up the right to make its own fuel.

    I’m amazed at the depth of the naivety exhibited by western nations including the U.S., France and China.

    Israel should be worried. Very worried. In five short years, residents of Tel Aviv could very well awaken to a nuclear attack and a mushroom cloud over their city resulting in thousands of deaths.

  7. Capt. Wosocki says:

    The President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, will try to lobe a nuclear weapon at Israel the first chance he gets.

    Ahmadinejad has said he plans to put “the world in flames” so the Satanic “Mahdi” can return. These are his words, not mine. WW III will be a nuclear war soon and it will be fought in the Middle East.

    How tragic for humanity that we didn’t stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions before now. But, Obama was adamantly opposed to the Likkud government doing to Iran what it did to Syria.

    No wonder the Israelis detest and distrust Obama.

  8. Jolly Roger says:

    If we act militarily against Iran, it will be our death knell. We’d be reading inthe history books about how August was the month we committed national suicide, and the US set up its own dissolution.

    The simple fact of the matter is-we can’t do it. Iran is too vast, too populated, and has too much of its facilities safely underground. We’d need actual allies, and we’d need a whole bunch of them. Good luck rounding them up.

    This, like so many other things, can be laid right at the feet of the moronic monkey. The one lesson he taught the whole world was that if you don’t have WMD, you’d better acquire them. Quick.

    Let China worry about them. Israel is big enough to fight her own battles if need be. I’m a little more for securing our borders and becoming more self-sufficient. Would it really be so bad if we let the rest of the world take care of itself for awhile?

  10. bradfrmphnx says:

    Not to mention that most Iranians are very westernized and want to live in a western society. I have read where Iranians are tired of the hate towards the west. It would be a shame to go in there and start killing innocents because of the leader’s of the country. We seem to be pretty good at that though.

  11. retahyajyajav says:

    There’s no such thing as Israel going it alone.

    If Iran develops nukes and even tries to attack Israel, the USA — by default, will be drawn into the conflict.

    This is why so many experts inside the intelligence communities in Washington and London have argued in favor of blocking Iran’s atomic goals for the last 25 years.

  12. Stephan Iversonn says:

    Anyone who thinks Iran’s desire to develop nuclear energy is purely peaceful needs their head examined.

    Consider a few of these quotes by Ahmadinejad:

    “Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation’s fury.”

    “Iran is ready to transfer nuclear know-how to the
    Islamic countries due to their need.”

    “We believe that atomic energy is a blessing given by God.”

    “We think the era of utilization of force and pressure in international relations has ended. Today, the will of the people will prevail, as it did in the election in Iran.”

    “The Jews are the most detested people in all humanity.”

    “The extermination of six million Jews during World War II is myth.”

    Within 2 to 5 years, Iran will have nuclear weapons and will possess the ability to wipe Israel off the map.

    We should’ve acted when we had the opportunity to stop history. But, we have an Islamic sympathizer in the White House.

  13. Dale L. Suyeishi says:

    “The Jews are the most detested people in all humanity.”

    Ahmadinejad said this? You know, I’ve always thought he is crazy. Not just eccentric but certifiable.

    I do think the Western nations will one day regret not stopping this regime from going nuclear. And so much for our new friendship with the douchebag Russians for supplying Iran with this technology.

  14. Chad Lebanon says:

    Let’s see now. India, Pakistan and now Iran, all nuked up but they can’t feed their people, treat disease and educate their youth.

    Am I the only one who finds this more than a little ironic?

    Well good. I hope they annihilate each other. I’m sure Russian and China could use the real estate. What a bunch of fucking morons.

  15. joost says:

    The problem as I see it is, Americans live in a world of non-reality. We medicate on food, TV, sports, booze, sex and shopping, we’re removed from the real evils of the world, like Ahmadinejad. We see rarely see this sort of evil. It’s reserved for the worst criminals and child killers but, not in the men who run the country. This is why most Americans don’t see Ahmadinejad as such a bad guy. Our view of reality is warped.

  16. Matteo says:

    Maybe this will help readers understand what makes a nuclear Iran a threat to Israel and the region.

    Iran inaugurates nation’s first unmanned bomber

    TEHRAN, Iran – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Sunday inaugurated the country’s first domestically built unmanned bomber aircraft, calling it an “ambassador of death” to Iran’s enemies.

    The 4-meter-long drone aircraft can carry up to four cruise missiles and will have a range of 620 miles (1,000 kilometers), according to a state TV report — not far enough to reach archenemy Israel.

    “The jet, as well as being an ambassador of death for the enemies of humanity, has a main message of peace and friendship,” said Ahmadinejad at the inauguration ceremony, which fell on the country’s national day for its defense industries.

    Wait until Ahmadinejad puts a nuke onboard one of their “ambassadors of death” and sends to Tel Aviv or Jerusalem.

    The first second I read this jaw dropping The End Of Nations Hubpages Hub I said that From the Left blog’s web visitors have to be able to have their say on this link:

  18. fran says:

    It would be dangerous & wrong for a country to stockpile & amass loads of nuclear warheads, capable of blowing up this planet many times over.
    Oh wait, I just described the US.

    Apparently stockpiling nuclear warheads is OK if you happen to be self declared good guys.
