The NYT reports that Iran moved its nuclear material to a place we can easily bomb

Posted by avideditor on February 27, 2010

The jihadi loving paper that lies to promote the enemy agenda is now reporting this

” But the simplest explanation, that the Iranians had no choice, has its proponents. The fuel is stored in one big, specialized cask. When someone ordered that the fuel begin being fed into the giant centrifuges for further enrichment, engineers moved it to the only spot available — the exposed plant. Or, as one American intelligence official said, “You can’t dismiss the possibility that this is a screw-up.” read the rest

I personally do not trust the NYT or think dinner jacket is that stupid. In case I am wrong on the first account bomb Iran now. Incase I am wrong on the second account. Then Jihadis please find your closet gun and shoot yourselves in the head. I heard Allah wants to meet you 😉

It’s the End of the World, and Obama Feels Fine

Posted by ghostofsparta on May 25, 2009

(Crossposted at http://paranoidpyro8503.blogspot.com/2009/05/its-end-of-world-but-obama-feels-fine.html)

So this Memorial Day finds the news wires abuzz with the unmistakeable proof of how much the world loves and respects President Obama. Did I say love and respect? My apologies, I meant the exact opposite. It appears as though the rest of the world is figuring out, long ahead of about 52% of the American electorate, is that President Lightweight has absolutely no idea what he is doing in the realm of international affairs.

Iran To Celebrate ‘National Nuclear Day’ On Thursday

Posted by avideditor on April 8, 2009

From Holgers Awakens

Iran To Celebrate ‘National Nuclear Day’ On Thursday

Isn’t this just what the world needs? Iran, the world’s biggest terror supporting nation, will celebrate its “National Nuclear Day” on Thursday and most expert believe that the gimp-in-chief, Ahmadinejad, to announce that the country has finalized its nuclear enrichment program. But hey, let’s follow the United Nations plan and keep on hoping that the Iranians will just fall in line and not make those nasty nuclear weapons, okay?  …

So let me put up a hypothetical case here regarding a nuclear Iran. Let’s just say that one year from now, the Iranians have a high level meeting with Taliban leaders. The Taliban agree to ink a huge deal for Iranian oil and weapons (remember how much money is involved in the Afghan poppy trade) in exchange for Iran assisting the Taliban in ridding Afghanistan and Pakistan of Western troops. So, the agreement is signed and the Iranians threaten to launch two nuclear missileheads into Afghanistan – one into the nation’s capital of Kabul and one into the largest U.S./NATO military complex in the country. Considering that Barack Obama is President of the United States and Gordon Brown is the Prime Minister of Great Britain at the time, what do you think would happen? Would the West pull out of Afghanistan and Pakistan? Will the U.S. even have nuclear capabilities available at that time?

I’ve said it before here – if Israel were to make an attempt to take out the Iranian nuclear facilities and succeeded, the world would sigh a heavy sigh of relief. But doesn’t that just show how spineless the rest of the world is? How can Western leaders look their people straight in the eyes and NOT tell them that they are willing to give total support to Israel in that endeavor? Is that simply the right thing to do?

Iran Has a Secret Nuclear Reactor! Can we bomb them now?

Posted by avideditor on July 29, 2008

I got this from Yid With A Lid. I hope Israel or America do the right thing and bombs Iran before it is too late. 

 

IRAN HAS SECRET NUCLEAR REACTOR

 

Brian Williams New Best Friend, Iranian President Ahmadinejad might not have been totally honest during his interview last night when he denied any nuclear weapons ambitions. According Al-Siyassa a Kuwaiti Newspaper, the Iranian crazies have started work on a secret nuclear reactor, close to its border with Iraq. The translated report below has not only has picture and locations, but the paper has obtained from the construction company a letter from the Iranian Government demanding that everything must be done in complete secrecy. Now that we know, What are we going to do about it?:

Kuwaiti Daily Reveals: Iran Building Secret Nuclear Reactor-MEMRI

On July 29, 2008, the Kuwaiti daily Al-Siyassa reported that, according to “highly reliable sources,” Iranian authorities had begun construction of a secret nuclear reactor in the Al-Zarqan region close to the city of Ahwaz in southwest Iran, on the Iran-Iraq border.

Nancy Pelosi thinks Iran is behind our success in Iraq instead of the cause of trouble

Posted by avideditor on May 30, 2008

Pelosi sounds more like the speaker of the house in Iran. Despite sharing opposite values in everything except for a shared hatred of America, Pelosi gives the people that are funding and supplying most of the insurgency credit for the success of the surge. Iran is trying its best to kill as many of our heros as possible but Pelosi is in la la land. Libtards like her are allowing Iran to build nukes and kill our soldiers. Bomb Iran now before it is too late. Iran is going to sneek a nuke into the US and blow up a major city and try to nuke Israel the second it gets the bomb. Time is ticking. Someone really needs to check the sanity of some of the people running our government. The thought of Pelosi being 3rd in line for the presidency scares the hell out of me. 

Konservo has the audio of the speech on his site but I don’t agree with his thoughts on Pelosi pandering to the Israelis. Saying she is behind more talks does nothing to stop Iran from nuking Tel Aviv. Keep in mind Israel is just the little Satin to the loons in Iran. Big Satan is the USA. Iran controls Hezbollah which has sleeper cells in North America and Military bases in South America. The only solution is to bomb Iran before they bomb us. 

Commentary has a more scholarly analysis. It is from the editor who wrote. The Case to Bomb Iran Have any of my readers read Podhoretz’s World War IV? I have been wanting to read it. Does it have any mind blowing insight or is it already dated?

 

Pelosi Credits Iran’s “Goodwill” for Surge Success

In an interview yesterday with the San Francisco Chronicle, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi claimed the U.S. troop surge failed to accomplish its goal. She then partially credited the success of the troop surge to “the goodwill of the Iranians,” claiming that they were responsible for ending violence in the southern city of Basra.

U.S. Poised To Strike “Al Quds In Iraq” Base In Iran

Posted by avideditor on May 4, 2008

     I really want to see the US engage in action, instead of just threats. Iran needs to be bombed now! Bomb Bomb Bomb Bomb Bomb IRAN.
It is just sick to let these people kill our heroes and do nothing. It is pay back time.
       Every day we do not bomb Iran the more of our soldiers will be killed and the closer they will get to obtaining a nuke.

Times Online: 

The US military is drawing up plans for a “surgical strike” against an insurgent training camp inside Iran if Republican Guards continue with attempts to destabilise Iraq, western intelligence sources said last week. One source said the Americans were growing increasingly angry at the involvement of the Guards’ special-operations Quds force inside Iraq, training Shi’ite militias and smuggling weapons into the country.

Despite a belligerent stance by Vice-President Dick Cheney, the administration has put plans for an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities on the back burner since Robert Gates replaced Donald Rumsfeld as defence secretary in 2006, the sources said.

However, US commanders are increasingly concerned by Iranian interference in Iraq and are determined that recent successes by joint Iraqi and US forces in the southern port city of Basra should not be reversed by the Quds Force.

“If the situation in Basra goes back to what it was like before, America is likely to blame Iran and carry out a surgical strike on a militant training camp across the border in Khuzestan,” said one source, referring to a frontier province.

They acknowledged Iran was unlikely to cease involvement in Iraq and that, however limited a US attack might be, the fighting could escalate.

Although American defence chiefs are firmly opposed to any attack on Iranian nuclear facilities, they believe a raid on one of the camps training Shi’ite militiamen would deliver a powerful message to Tehran.

British officials believe the US military tends to overestimate the effect of the Iranian involvement in Iraq.

But they say there is little doubt that the Revolutionary Guard exercises significant influence over splinter groups of the radical cleric Moqtada al-Sadr’s Mahdi Army, who were the main targets of recent operations in Basra.

The CBS television network reported last week that plans were being drawn up for an attack on Iran, citing an officer who blamed the “increasingly hostile role” Iran was playing in Iraq.

The American news reports were unclear about the precise target of such an action and referred to Iran’s nuclear facilities as the likely objective.

According to the intelligence sources there will not be an attack on Iran’s nuclear capacity. “The Pentagon is not keen on that at all. If an attack happens it will be on a training camp to send a clear message to Iran not to interfere.”

President George W Bush is known to be determined that he should not hand over what he sees as “the Iran problem” to his successor. A limited attack on a training camp may give an impression of tough action, while at the same time being something that both Gates and the US commander in Iraq, General David Petraeus, could accept.

The US is getting Ready to Bomb Iran to stop it from getting a NUKE

Posted by avideditor on April 6, 2008

I hope this data is right. If it is it looks like the US is going to take the important long over due step in disabling the nuclear program of Iran. The world can not live with a nuclear Iran because the culture of the current government in Iran is a culture of death, which will not be afraid of mutually insured destruction like the USSR. So everyone pray that we will bomb Iran before it is too later. I think it will be this week.

Exclusive: Iran, Syria, Lebanon on military alert over US Gulf movements and Israel’s home defense drill:
According to British media, the US is set to attack Iranian military facilities. DEBKAfile’s military sources add that the USS Abraham Lincoln Strike Force is heading for the Persian Gulf.
War tensions in the Middle East have shot up – not only over the signals flashing between Syria, Lebanon, and Israel, but also on the US-Iranian front in Iraq in the wake of rising in violence around the Basra conflagration.
Tuesday, April 8, US Iraq commander, Gen. David Petraeus and ambassador to Baghdad, Ryan Crocker, will stress in their report to Congress that Iran is waging war on America in Iraq, say sources in Washington, London and Baghdad.
This emerged strongly last week, when US intelligence learned that Iran had intervened directly in the Iraqi government’s crackdown on renegade militias in Basra and southern Iraq, by directing and provisioning those militias through the Revolutionary Guards’ al Qods Brigades.
Official sources in London predict that Iran’s intervention against the American effort to stabilize Iraq may well prompt a US attack on the military installations in Iran which are orchestrating the interference.
Gen. Petraeus is on record as accusing Iran of being the source of the daily rocket bombardment of Baghdad’s Green Zone, seat of government and US diplomatic and military headquarters.
DEBKAfile’s military sources report that Moscow has dropped its two nickels into the rising war alarm. In the last two weeks, Russian military and intelligence officials have been leaking claims of intensified American military movements around Iranian shores.
Iran is certain to come up in Presidents George W. Bush and Vladimir Putin’s farewell talks in the Black Sea resort of Sochi Sunday, along with other controversial business, such as Moscow’s objections to NATO’s eastern expansion and US missile shield in East Europe.
Saturday, US defense secretary Robert Gates turned up in Oman, the site of big American air bases, for talks with Sultan Qaboos. He then flew straight back to Washington. While Gates insisted to correspondents aboard his plane that the US is committed to a diplomatic solution for Iran’s covert nuclear program, the surpise visit struck sparks in the already fraught regional atmosphere, particularly as it followed on the heels of US Vice President Dick Cheney’s talks in Oman two weeks ago.
DEBKAfile’s Middle East sources sum up how Tehran and Damascus read these events and the picture they have built up of Washington’s intentions as combined with Israel’s military steps:
1. US is preparing to attack the Iranian military installations linked to subversion in Iraq. The operation will widen out into strikes on the Islamic Republic’s suspect nuclear sites.
2. Israel will use the chance for a concurrent attack on Syria.
3. Israel will attack Hizballah’s strongholds in Lebanon.
4. A broad, coordinated US-Israeli offensive will be mounted against Iran, Syria and Hizballah.
Iran and Syria view Israel’s four-day home defense exercise against missile attack, conventional or non-conventional, beginning Sunday, as setting the stage for these attacks.
Both believe Washington and Jerusalem are in close military step. Neither is reassured by soothing statements from prime minister Ehud Olmert and defense minister Barak that Israel does not seek violent confrontation – especially when the US administration is withholding all comment. Hence the high state of preparedness ordered by the jittery governments in Tehran, Damascus and Beirut.

NIE Clarifies: Iran Almost Certainly Making Bomb

Posted by avideditor on April 6, 2008

CAN WE BOMB IRAN NOW?

NIE Clarifies: Iran Almost Certainly Making Bomb: ”

hayden.jpg

W-Times:

The contested U.S. intelligence conclusion that Iran stopped work on its nuclear weapons program in 2003 is now being downplayed by the same officials who wrote the much-publicized report in November.

‘Why would the Iranians be willing to pay the international tariff they appear to be willing to pay for what they are doing now if they did not have, at a minimum, at a minimum, they did not have a desire to keep the option open to develop a nuclear weapon and perhaps even more so that they have already decided to do that?’ CIA Director Michael V. Hayden said Sunday.

The four-star Air Force general said it was ‘hard for me to explain’ the intelligence community’s conclusion that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 and probably had not restarted it as of the middle of last year.

And his boss, Director of National Intelligence Michael McConnell, said the report was so quickly declassified and poorly focused that it confused people.

‘If I had it to do over again, I would be very specific in how I described what was canceled and what continued,’ Mr. McConnell told a Senate panel of his community’s National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran.

Most news coverage of the assessment focused on the first sentence in its summary of key judgments: ‘We judge with high confidence that in fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program.’

But, the officials now say that sentence referred only to work on a nuclear warhead.

Mr. McConnell and Mr. Hayden now are emphasizing that Iran continues work on the enrichment of uranium, which could be used to make a weapon, and on ballistic missiles, which could be used to deliver a nuclear warhead. The publicly released NIE described Iran’s highly public enrichment efforts but did not mention the missile program, which already gives Iran the capacity to strike targets in Europe.

‘The other aspects of the Iranian nuclear effort, beyond the weaponization, the development of fissile material, the development of delivery systems, all continue apace,’ Mr. Hayden said this week.

Last month, Mr. Hayden agreed with Mr. McConnell’s characterization.

Mr. Hayden told editors and reporters of The Washington Times on March 11 that at the time the NIE was released in December he insisted there are three key elements of a nuclear weapons program: fissile material, weaponization and delivery systems.

‘What came out in a lot of coverage was ‘Iran stops nuclear program,’ ’ Mr. Hayden said. ‘The only thing we claimed had been halted in ‘03 was the weaponization. The development of fissile material, and the development of delivery systems continued. And one can make the case the development of delivery systems make no sense with just conventional warheads on top of them.’

The declassified NIE key judgments, however, made no mention of delivery systems and focused extensively on the halted program.

Steven Aftergood, an intelligence expert at the Federation of American Scientists, said the shift in tone from the intelligence chieftains has created some uncertainty about Iran’s program.

‘There have been mixed signals coming from senior intelligence officials regarding Iran,’ Mr. Aftergood said. ‘But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It helps to remind us that intelligence officials are not omniscient, that they can be mistaken, and that sometimes they change their minds.

‘Those are realities that are worth keeping in mind. For my part, I would rather have mixed signals and a vigorous discussion than a blank wall of secrecy.’

Perhaps no single intelligence document has come under as much criticism since the CIA and other agencies issued the 2002 NIE that said Iraq still maintained an arsenal of weapons of mass destruction — when it did not.

Conservative national security analysts roundly condemn the Iran NIE. Among the criticisms: The CIA knows little about the inner workings of Tehran’s hard-line Islamic government and does not know for sure that Iran has or has not resumed work on a warhead.

Critics also say the NIE delivered a public relations victory to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, while embarrassing President Bush and eliminating his most powerful option — air strikes on Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Since the NIE’s declassification, intelligence officials, while not abandoning it, have complained that the news media oversimplified its findings by writing that Iran ended its nuclear weapons research, which it has not.

In public comments, Mr. McConnell emphasizes that a closer reading reveals the NIE said Iran stopped work on only one project — designing the nuclear bomb itself.

He told the Senate Armed Services Committee in February, ‘I think the press mischaracterized’ the NIE, which reversed an earlier finding.

Mr. McConnell heads the committee of 16 intelligence agencies, including the CIA, which wrote and approved the NIE. He not only blamed the press, but he also criticized himself.

‘If I had had the foresight to know I was going to be forced to do unclassified key judgments, because of the circumstances, I would have caused the key judgments to be very clear about what was stopped and what continued,’ he told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. ‘I’ll take responsibility. That’s an error in judgment on my part. I wasn’t clairvoyant or smart.’

Mr. McConnell then added more complexity to the debate, saying Iran could have restarted work on a nuclear warhead without U.S. intelligence agencies being aware of it.

‘If Iran’s nuclear weapons design program … has already been reactivated or will be reactivated, it will be a closely guarded state secret,’ he testified.

Mr. Hayden said on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday that ‘it’s a very difficult judgment. It’s a complex judgment, too, and it’s one that, unfortunately, tends to get oversimplified in public discourse.’

Asked about Mr. Hayden’s NIE explanation, a senior intelligence official said, ‘Weaponizing a device is just one aspect of developing a nuclear weapon. The hard part is producing the highly enriched uranium, and that continues apace, as does the testing of delivery systems.’

James Phillips, a Heritage Foundation expert on the Middle East who has criticized the NIE, said Mr. McConnell and Mr. Hayden are ‘backpedaling.’

‘They realize how misleading its conclusions were, especially when taken out of context,’ Mr. Phillips said. ‘There is a growing consensus that the NIE accorded too much weight to the reported halt in weaponization research, which is relatively easy to accomplish, and too little weight to Iran’s acceleration of its uranium enrichment effort, which is a much more difficult hurdle that must be overcome to build a nuclear weapon. Also, the NIE failed to account for Iran’s missile program, which makes little sense.’

Meanwhile, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the United Nations’ nuclear counterproliferation arm, reported last month that Iran has refused to stop enriching uranium, as demanded by a U.N. resolution.

IAEA officials met in January with Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The agency said he stated, ‘the country’s nuclear program had always been exclusively for peaceful purposes and that there had never been a nuclear weapons development program.’

The new NIE rebuts that statement, saying Iran was working on nuclear warhead designs until 2003, when it secretly stopped because of international pressure.
