CIA: Iran capable of producing nukes


www.washingtontimes.com

Iran is poised to begin producing nuclear weapons after its uranium program expansion in 2009, even though it has had problems with thousands of its centrifuges, according to a newly released CIA report.

"Iran continues to develop a range of capabilities that could be applied to producing nuclear weapons, if a decision is made to do so,"

Sounds like Iran has the capability to produce nuclear weapons if it decides to do so!

The CIA is probably in a position to know esp. since the defection of Shahram Amiri.

Iran is keeping the door open: "That's in spite of strong international pressure not to do so, and some difficulties they themselves seem to be having with their nuclear program," the official said. "There are powerful incentives for them to close the door completely, but they are either purposefully ignoring them or are tone deaf. You almost want to shout, 'Tune in Tehran.'"


The International Atomic Energy Agency on March 3 issued a report warning that continuing nuclear activities in violation of U.N. resolutions raise "concerns about the possible existence in Iran of past or current undisclosed activities related to the development of a nuclear payload for a missile."

Yours' was ahead by 2 minutes and not replied to... well...

I think CIA got furious with WikiLeaks' europe document leak and the April 5 video and started an information war to distract the public!

Machiavelli's mediaeval tactic is being put to use!

What concerns is that a regime like the ones that exist in Iran and North Korea have a tendency to do crazy things when they are on the brink . Just look at how the Argentine junta launched The Falklands War had they waited a few more months the Royal Navy would have been powerless to respond to due cut backs in defence expenditure .

I suppose it does make one wonder what the CIA is up to although calling attention to the Iranian threat right now might be more of an effort to influence internal Iranian and ME politics than European opinion. Even the Russians are currently upset with their Iranian partners right now. Spring is the traditional season for Iranian mischief so all eyes are watching.

IMO, Iran is destined to have nukes. No ifs, then, or butts about it.

The US isn't going to stop them and neither is Israel.

The US isn't willing to go to war over the matter only to find out that there aren't any nukes. Israel will be controlled.

Just think of how long this has been an issue and yet Iran continues to find ways to buy time.

Of course, they wouldn't be able to buy that time if the world was serious about a nuke free Iran.

Good point. If Russia, Turkey and the EU were serious, they could probably stop Iran's nuclear program. Makes you wonder why they don't as they are the ones with the most to loose when Iran becomes nuclear and has intermediate range missile capabilities.
