Some people won't the Iranian regime wants nuclear weapons until one is passed off, used and identified as Iranian.

I believe, still, there is no "concrete proof" of a weapons programme or the Nuclear Plants would already be flattened. However, Iran is HUGE.. and their mountain bases are plentiful. UN inspectors don't know of every site.

They probably want one, or a few, to act as deterrence for western aggression. I mean, the US has how many nukes? I would say they probably have one already, and they need more "Nuke scientists" to figure out the bugs.

It would have been better had Iran asked the U.S. or Israel for a nuclear bomb. "Since you guys have soooo many, you should share one with us, eh? .....C'monnnnnnnnnn, eh, eh? Before you give Iraq a nuclear program, help us out. Sure, North Korea has dangerously tested their rockets but who cares - we are the bad guys right? Oh sure, Pakistan, a country you are trying to destroy, also has one. Tell me again the rules here? You guys can bring hell and destruction to other nations but Iran can't have a single nuclear weapon? No fair!!!"

I heard on the BBC World Service a week or two ago that several Iranian nuclear scientists had been assassinated on their way to work?

Maybe this is why they're looking for more - to replace those they lost?

www.bbc.co.uk...

EDIT: Seems two were targeted, one killed.


The nuclear scientist injured in the second attack was named as Fereydoon Abbasi.

According to the conservative news website Mashregh News, Dr Abbasi is "one of the few specialists who can separate isotopes" - a process that is crucial in the manufacture of uranium fuel for nuclear power stations and is also required for the creation of uranium-based nuclear weapons.

Sounds like an intentionally planted propaganda piece to me.

I'm not familiar with the Vancouver Sun but let's assume that it is a mainstream media outlet (as opposed to a tabloid magazine). One of their reporters develops a "source" who claims to be a former Iranian diplomat of some sort and who is more than happy to tell his new friend some scandelous tales. Did he betray his country for free or was he rewarded in some way for his story? Any background on this person? Is he even real?

What sealed it for me was this:

Last year Iran was forced to admit it was secretly building a second enrichment plant near Qom...


In point of fact, Iran complied with the IAEA reporting requirements by notifying the Agency six months prior to start of production. Thus the claim that Iran was "forced to admit" anything is at best an indication of the articles overall bias and at worse an outright lie. Take your pick.

Either way, imho, it just doesn't pass the smell test.

The pay would have to be real good as your likely to end up shot or blown up by someone.

If you survived those you own country is likely to arrest you of you leave Iran for leaking nuclear secrets.

Every country that has nuclear weapons has there scientist sign documents that they will never release nuclear secrets to other countries.

Iran wants nukes.

I don't know why in the world we don't give them some.

They can be delivered within fifteen minutes.

And then we can put this behind us.

How come you can ask for a genocide on the Iranian people and not get banned? Must I unearth your true nature?

This is simply fear mongering. The article is a work of propaganda and the fact that the Iranian regime is a puppet of Israel and the US just shows how bad people like yourself have been fooled.


Care to post a credible source? No? I wonder why? Go smoke some more pot, and if you're out, there's a whole bunch of pot in the Netherlands, we'll be happy to accomodate you getting high and making up bullcrap stories based on bullcrap news.

I'm sure North Korea can deliver nukes to Iran - well - maybe not in fifteen minutes but pretty soon.

Or they could purchase them from Russia.

Once they get them, then they're fair game.

Why, did you think I meant something else?

Like what?

So what you are saying is that the nations that already posses nukes, such as Israel and the US, are fair game and targets for those who wish to commit genocide in these places?

What the hell is wrong with you?

You sure are touchy on this matter.

It's a simple concept. When a nation is armed with nukes, then the concept of preemptive strike becomes available in kind.

It's not fair to nuke the hell out of a nation that doesn't have nukes.

Make sure they get nukes, and you are then justified under the military principle of preemptive strike.

It's a time-honored concept well used over the millennia.

Correct, as would any other human being when someone calls out for genocide. I think I will use that report button for the first time.

Russia? North Korea? Israel? Germany? The US? Why do you pick Iran when other countries HAVE nukes and Iran DOES NOT?

Did Japan have nukes when they got nuked? Your logic rivals that of a zionist.


It's not fair to nuke the hell out of a nation that doesn't have nukes.


Nuking a population that has nothing to do with its government or regime is fair to you? Again, your logic rivals that of zionists.


Make sure they get nukes, and you are then justified under the military principle of preemptive strike.


Ever heard of M.A.D when you speak like you know how the military works? Come back to reality sonny.

It's a time-honored concept well used over the millennia.

Iran insists its programme is for peaceful purposes, and that there is nothing illegal about a uranium enrichment plant under construction near the city of Qom, the existence of which was revealed last week. Iranian leaders say they did not have to inform the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) until six months before the first uranium was processed.

But ElBaradei, the outgoing IAEA director general, publicly disagreed today, saying Iran had been under an obligation to tell the agency "on the day it was decided to construct the facility". He said the Iranian government was "on the wrong side of the law".


www.guardian.co.uk...


Resolution adopted by the Board of Governors on 27 November 2009

1. Urges Iran to comply fully and without delay with its obligations under the above mentioned resolutions of the Security Council, and to meet the requirements of the Board of Governors, including by suspending immediately construction at Qom;

4. Urges Iran specifically to provide the Agency with the requested clarifications regarding the purpose of the enrichment plant at Qom and the chronology of its design and construction;


www.iaea.org...


As previously reported, in Iran’s initial declaration regarding the purpose of FFEP, contained in a letter dated 2 December 2009, Iran stated that, “The location [near Qom] originally was considered as a general area for passive defence contingency shelters for various utilizations. Then this location was selected for the construction of [the] Fuel Enrichment Plant in the second half of 2007”.

The Agency has asked Iran on a number of occasions, most recently in the aforementioned letter of 10 November 2010, to provide additional information regarding the chronology of the design and construction of FFEP, as well as its original purpose. The Agency has, on several occasions, also requested access to companies involved in the design and construction of FFEP. The Agency informed Iran that it had received extensive information from a number of sources alleging that design work on the facility had started in 2006.

In a letter of 16 November 2010, Iran said that its statements concerning the chronology and purpose of FFEP should be considered “as a fact” by the Agency, and that the Agency’s request to have access to companies involved in the design of the facility and to further design documents was not only not in accordance with the Safeguards Agreement but was also “beyond the Additional Protocol”. The Agency considers that the questions it has raised are within the terms of the Safeguards Agreement, and that the information requested is essential for the Agency to verify the chronology and original purpose of FFEP to ensure that the declarations of Iran are correct and complete.

Good luck


Israel have a long history of making people disappear, people who are crucial to nations weapons programmes.

IE Iraq's nuclear programme
IE Egypt’s missile programme

If one day you had a visit form an Iranian govt official offering you a cushy million dollar a month job, you'd consider it.

... you'd consider it until you found a bullet in an envelope in your mailbox saying '' if you go to work tomorrow you wont be coming home ''
