Welcome to national love week and happy Valentines Day! That’s the good news (more on this tomorrow) but first the bad news!
US prepares military blitz against Iran's nuclear sites!
Iran doesn't seem too fazed by the International Atomic Energy Agency's 27-3 vote last weekend to report the country to the U.N. Security Council. Teheran reacted by announcing that it would resume full-scale uranium enrichment - producing material that could arm nuclear devices. If Iran wants to enrich uranium, says Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the West "can't do a thing" about it. "Issue as many resolutions like this as you want and make yourself happy. You can't prevent the progress of the Iranian nation."
It looks like a two-fold Iranian front against the West. On the one hand, as a prominent Iranian newspaper says, it is going to hold a competition for cartoons on the Holocaust to test whether the West will apply the principle of freedom of expression to the Nazi genocide against Jews as it did to the caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed. And on the other, make an atomic bomb to test whether the West will back up the idle threats of democracy and freedom for all under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Of course, Iran says it wants to enrich Iranian uranium for energy. Western intelligence agencies say they have evidence Iran wants The Bomb. Either way, if Iran wants to enrich uranium, it wants into an exclusive international club. Only about 30 nations operate nuclear power plants; fewer than 10 can make nuclear weapons. Those nations all share a secret recipe - the recipe for enriched uranium, which makes nuclear power plants go and nuclear weapons go boom.
Meanwhile, Iran's controversial Natanz uranium processing plant has successfully restarted the sophisticated equipment that could enable it to produce material for nuclear warheads, according to reports received by Western intelligence.
This crucial development follows Iran's decision to withdraw its co-operation from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna after the body decided last week to refer Iran to the United Nations Security Council. Also, Iranian officials have moved quickly to obstruct the work of the UN nuclear inspectors still working in the country's nuclear facilities.
Here’s the bottom line: The President will not want to be seen as leaving the White House having allowed Iran's ayatollahs to go atomic. Concomitantly, strategists at the Pentagon are drawing up plans for devastating bombing raids backed by submarine-launched ballistic missile attacks against Iran's nuclear sites as a "last resort" to block Teheran's efforts to develop an atomic bomb.
FYI: I don't know the secret recipe for the bomb but I’ve learned the basics of enriching uranium through some recent research on the subject. I may share this information at a later date. Be patient!
BTW: It will take some time for Iran to acquire the knowledge to make an atomic bomb and the actual construction will take longer; perhaps a total of 3 to 5 years minimum without my help.
Do you feel the pain? Matthew 24 (You will hear of wars and rumors of wars…)
