With the usual calls for Israel, France and Germany leading the way, the Obama Administration today expressed hope that a leaked IAEA report speculating on Iran’s nuclear program would help with the international push for additional sanctions against Iran.
The IAEA report cited an alleged technical violation from last week, but included a vaguely worded sentence speculating about the “possibile existence of past or current undisclosed activities.” It provided no actual evidence for the existence of a nuclear weapons program.
And there never will be, according to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, who reiterated today that Iran will never seek atomic weapons, insisting that as weapons of genocide they are haram (religiously banned) in the Islamic Republic.
The bulk of Iran’s uranium enrichment program is focused around producing 3.5 percent enriched uranium for use in its nuclear energy program. Last week they also began to produce small amounts of 20 percent enriched uranium, for use in a medical isotope program. A hypothetical nuclear weapon would require enrichment above 90 percent, and the IAEA has repeatedly certified that none of the uranium has been diverted from the civilian programs.

Now that the pesky and unreliable El-Baradei has been replaced with the Japanese nuclear mental case Amano, the FedGov and the Zionist supremacists can have the IAEA issue an unlimited number of factually worthless but propagandistically priceless blatherings that will keep the demented American sheeple longing to "bomb, bomb, bomb Iran."
You're probably right about that. Dead right. They have a hawk in there for sure. Lets see what this upcoming NIE estimate is gonna say?
btw, I believe the Ayatollah. All the evidence supports his claim and his argument anyway so there is no reason to disbelieve what he says. Especially since he has the final say on energy matters.
Israel – the same rogue nation that offered to sell medium range nuclear tipped missiles to the Shah of Iran in the 1970's; Israel – the same rogue nation that sold weapons to Iran during the Reagan Iran-Contra affair; Israel and its AIPAC Zionist TRAITORS to the U.S. – now calling for the bombing of Iran. WOW!
So true!!! Thanks for bringing this to light!
The same rogue nation that attacked the Liberty and shakes us down for 3 billion bucks a year…
The following is a part of my previous comment on Atniwar.com
“…….however, the Iranians, during their 8 year of war with Iraq refused the offers of the foreign chemical arms-dealers for enabling Iran to produce chemical weaponry. The Iranians claim their refusal was only on the basis of their moral convictions….”
I had read it some place about 15 years ago or so, I remember I trusted the source but I’ve forgotten the details on the source.
If true, it is another confirmation that Iran might not be after building the A-Bomb.
I’m sure it is IMPORTANT to research that topic and verify the AUTHENTICITY of the above assertion..
Will anyone in AntiWar staff spend some time and dig this out? I wish I had contacts in Iran to get the proper documents. Gareth Porter and Scott Ridder were in Iran, can they inquire about that?
