According to Debka, the trusted member of President Ahmadinejad’s crew took with him to the States two suitcases full of “the most complete and updated footage” that US intelligence has ever been offered of Iran’s top secret military facilities and other related structures, something the site claims to include “exclusive interior shots of the Natanz nuclear complex, the Fordo underground enrichment plant, the Parchin military complex and the small Amir-Abad research reactor in Tehran.”
The United States has been eager to get to the bottom of Iran’s nuclear program, a project that Ahmadinejad attests is for peaceful purposes. If Debka’s report checks out, however, US intelligence may finally be able to hold Iran accountable for proved attempts towards procuring a nuke. According to the source, “Some of the film depicts Revolutionary Guards and military industry chiefs explaining in detail to the president or supreme leader the working of secret equipment on view.”
During his own recent address before the UN General Assembly, US President Barack Obama called a nuclear-armed Iran “not a challenge that can be contained” that has the potential to “threaten the elimination of Israel, the security of Gulf nations, and the stability of the global economy.” “That is why a coalition of countries is holding the Iranian government accountable. And that is why the United States will do what we must to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon,” President Obama told his audience.

So, could this be proof that Iran is actually making a Nuke after all, and all you people that think Iran is doing all this for peaceful purposes are wrong? So everyone that thinks Israel is "Crazy" or a terrorist country is pretty much just got slapped in the face..Soo. If this is true news, it could be a big hit on Iran, and also if true..Russia and China wont be backing Iran anymore..I would love to see the Video of the "secret" stuff inside Iran's nuclear facilities..and any pics if they do release any..

Meh, Iran may be attempting to make a nuke but that is small potatoes compared to the fact other countries have hundreds and a couple have thousands...
Iran building nukes doesn't legitimize or justify any of the less than ethical, moral and legal actions by Israel...
preemptive war/intervention is still an absolutely horrible idea based on paranoia among many other things. If my neighbor says "I'm going to kill you"...that doesn't give me the right to break into his house and kill him first...It doesn't give me the right to break in and take his guns...it doesn't give me ANY right actually...at the very most it gives me a heads up...but taking action is a whole other ball game...
Amir Ali Hajizadeh, a brigadier general in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, made the comments to Iran's state-run Arabic language Al-Alam television, according to a report on the network's website.
"Iran will not start any war but it could launch a pre-emptive attack if it was sure that the enemies are putting the final touches to attack it," Al-Alam said, paraphrasing the military commander.
The absurdity of preemptive war is that it guarantees conflict...and some people are more comfortable with guaranteed conflict than a chance of conflict...which I just don't quite understand...
The nuclear genie is out of the bottle people...it has been for a while...how long can they keep trying to sweep it under the rug? At some point in the future that genie is going to come out and say hello...as technology progresses and suitcase nukes become more and more possible...its inevitable...there is a lot of anger and a lot of animosity and resentment around the world...
So everyone that thinks Israel is "Crazy" or a terrorist country is pretty much just got slapped in the face

What happens to countries with nukes? Politeness. What happens to countries without nukes? Invaded.
Military experts and analysts who cover Iranian military and defense issues have acknowledged that Iran does in fact have the strongest ballistic missile program in the Middle East and that the low costs of the missiles has in fact taken the ballistic missile market out of the West's hands, the editorial says.
The newspaper cites recent testimony before the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee by the director of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, Lt. Gen. Ronald L. Burgess. "Iran's progress in building ballistic missiles is noticeable, and with the launch of satellites to space it became clear that Iran has succeeded in building intercontinental ballistic missiles," the general testified, according to the paper. The successful launch of the Rasad satellite to space drew the attention of observers and foreign counterparts, the general reportedly testified.

They cant get into their facilities, so they manufacture a story that makes it seem as if someone from Iran's top tier is selling them out? Conveniently timed wouldnt you say? I suppose the American people will believe this story though, and it will be all the justification necessary to wage a new war..

Fact: Countries with Nuclear Weapons are treated differently (with respect) than Countries without.
Even if Iran is building a Nuke, can you blame them? If they were to attain a nuke they would suddenly find themselves in a position where Nations would be willing to sit at the table and actually talk to them rather than impose more sanctions, and that is a fact.
Do you see anyone threatening to invade North Korea? I sure don't and they are not known as a "friendly" nation.
