Iran & the globalist agenda

Without exception, the most chilling article or body of research regarding Iran and their nuclear potential was written by Naomi Ragen in the 17 May edition of The Jerusalem Post. Among the findings disclosed by Ms. Ragen were the following:

Iran has a stockpile of uranium enriched to 20 percent, well beyond the enrichment level of 3.4 percent needed to use for peaceful purposes in a nuclear power plant. Centrifuges are working day and night to purify the uranium to the desired 90 percent for weapon purposes. This fact alone offers irrefutable proof that Ahmadinejad and the Muslim Mullahs are lying to the world that they are processing uranium for peaceful purposes only.

As of April 2012, Iran possesses enough low-enriched uranium to fuel five-(5) nuclear implosion weapons, assuming that such weapons would use 16 kilograms of uranium purified to a 90 percent level. The number of nuclear weapons can be doubled if the desired yield is about equivalent to the bomb dropped on Hiroshima.

Considering Iran’s current stockpile of uranium enriched to 20 percent, further refinement to produce one large nuclear weapon has been reasonably estimated to be 3-12 months as of April, 2012. Smaller but more weapons can be produced by reducing the amount of enriched uranium to be used per bomb.

Perhaps the most sobering aspect of Iran’s nuclear weapons program is what it would take to stop it. First on the list are seemingly everyone’s favorite two words, negotiations and sanctions. To date, negotiations to lift sanctions against Iran have been narrow in scope, involving the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany. Playing the victim card, Iran has been actively convincing the world that it is their right to be able to refine uranium to the level necessary for peaceful use in reactors.

Meanwhile, no one appears to desire acknowledging the enriched uranium already refined well beyond any level necessary for peaceful purposes. Nonetheless, the gullible or complicit are continuing to contend that there is little to no evidence that Iran’s nuclear ambitions are nefarious, despite the obvious.

Despite the existence of sanctions against not only Iran but companies that supply Iran with materials necessary to advance their nuclear program, especially from companies inside or with ties to the United States, they are being circumvented and are not being enforced. Enforcement of such sanctions are not being pursued as aggressively as “sanctions” against Israel for building on their own land, for example.
