Iran can be called a "Nuclear Power"


english.ruvr.ru

Iran has acquired every technological potential to build nuclear weapons and be recognized as a nuclear power. This report was made by an Israeli senior intelligence officer who added that Iran’s transition to the nuclear status is now a matter of political solution. Iran’s nuclear program has long been an issue of serious international concern, but the IAEA has no evidence that it is pursuing a military agenda. The United States and a number of other countries have called for toughening sanctions against Iran following Tehran’s refusal to send its uranium for further enrichment abroad

Well, it's happened. Now what is the US and the rest of the World going to do? Wait for Iran to use it? See if they only use it for peaceful projects? WHAT?

This isn't just POTUS Obama fault-but Bushes, Clintons and the rest. They lets these nut bags grow to where they are today.

Tic Tic Tic. getting closer to Midnight...

(This is the first I saw this, from Russia-I will post updates as they get printed for better confirmation.

Don't bother reading, not news.

The alleged source for this: "an Israeli senior intelligence officer"

....Yeah, Okay. This is believable.

If it wasn't news (for Russia at least), they wouldn't be putting it out there. They are the ones who are the major contributors to the Iran program.

It isn't like Iran isn't trying. They are/were going to get it eventually-why can't it be now? Just because you don't approve of the source doesn't mean it isn't real.

We need to wake up on this and stop pretending it isn't a big deal.

And, depending who heard the Intel Officer's Report will determine what action Israel will be taking. What what I gather, this is all the news they need to hear and/or be confirmed. They will attack Iran soon-and hard.

Whoever bombs Iran deserves to be nuked or subject to chemical and biological weapons attack. All options are on the table after an act of aggression like that.

If Israel gets itself turned into glass for attacking Iran, then so be it.

Nations have a right to retaliate once they are attacked.

Thanks for contributing to baseless war-mongering. If you haven't figured out by now that there is a massive propaganda program in place to make people afraid of Iran and their non-existent nuclear warheads, then I really just feel sorry for you. For f***s sake, the article itself even mentions that the IAEA has NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER that Iran is trying to pursue nuclear weapons.

If Iran ever did build a nuke, they would join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (unlike Israel!) and use their nuclear weapons purely as a defensive measure. They wouldn't dream of using it for military aggression, that is not just an unlikely scenario, but downright retarded.

Iran has probably already had nukes for months now. There was a post not too long ago that involved Ajemijad issuing the end of western cultures with a big celebration. After he did this there was a earthquake that hit 5.3 on the ricter scale. I believe this was Iran detonating its first nuke.

The IAEA is a joke to begin with. If they weren't, there wouldn't be this issue to begin with.

I feel sorry for you thinking that the leaders in Iran have any intensions of acting like a normal nuke possessing country. And the fact they would adhere to any conditions in the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

But, I do concur with the next post that Iran has the right to defend itself-once attack-either by US or anyone else. I don't know where this crazy road will end but I do know that the big blockage along the way on to a peace ending trip-is Iran.

As well as the news that Bin laden is alive and well in a compound in the hills north of Tehran..

get ready for invasion folks..this is it.

I feel sorry for Iran they haven't done anythign wrong to deserve this, they are pursuing nuclear energy and space travel just like us.

I also feel sorry for the western armies going against Iran.. they have many links worldwide,powerful allies *cough* Russia and China *cough*, and one hell of an experienced military.

This isn't going to be like Iraq with tens of thousands of soldiers surrendering as soon as troops are seen.

So damn true..I never trust anything from the IDF seniors

When they say "12 militants killed and 4 civilians injured" it tends to mean "16 civilians killed and celebration parties"

I hate to say it but I have to agree with the above poster. You don't pre-emptively attack a country for what it might do. That's like arresting a person because someone in their family is a criminal and they might have the proclivity to be a criminal.

No one in my opinion has any right to tell Iran whether or not it can have nuclear weapons. A few trusted countries are not the end all be all on the subject. Trusted countries being North Korea for instance.

Give Iran a chance to prove us wrong and if they dare attempt to use their new found power in an overt fashion then take it to them wholesale but at least then you will have the backing of the international community.

Why would Iran strike first, it's obviously suicide.

They have every right to own nukes as a detterent.

They are not the aggressors, America has their country surrounded and is targeting them.

They probably could have been, I'm not so sure now, though. The fact that we have constantly bombarded them back with war rhetoric doesn't leave a country much of an option but to stock up on "goods." Not saying that is a good or bad thing, but you can only threaten a person for so long before they eventually will start thinking of ways to protect themselves in case the threats become reality.

That's kind of one-sided, don't you think? The whole region is unstable, the international politics involved are unstable. I'm not going to blame just Iran, though goodness knows Immadinthehead didn't help. The drums have been beating for a long time, and I hope they only continue to beat and it doesn't escalate.

Nuclear war will affect us all, and I honestly don't want to see all those lives lost for what political leaders decide. Its always the same, old men send young men to die for their political egos. Sad.

The fact that it came from Israel is great.
I guess since it came from him we should send in the troops. Afterall, government officials are always so honest, especially when religion (Jews vs. Muslims) is involved. Heck, even if we have a hunch that they have nuclear weapons potential, we should probably nuke them to be safe.

I agree with the other posters, this "report" is about as unbelievable and unreliable as it comes. It sounds to me like the Israelis trying to sway popular opinion just a tad more, before bombing Iran. Just my 2 cents.

No star or flag for the OP for his/her reiteration of Zionist propaganda. As for the NNPT, Iran is currently a signatory and has abided by all requirements for inspections, etc. by the IAEA. (Which rightly concluded that there is no evidence of a military nuclear program in Iran).

Israel, on the other hand, has consistantly refused to sign the treaty, allow any inspections or even admit (officially) that they have nuclear weapons in their inventory. Until such time as they comply with the NNPT, the war-mongers in Tel Aviv need to sit the f**k down and SHUT THE F**K UP!

The nuclear program of Iran was launched in the 1950s with the help of the United States as part of the Atoms for Peace program. The support, encouragement and participation of the United States and Western European governments in Iran's nuclear program continued until the 1979 Iranian Revolution that toppled the Shah of Iran.
