Skip to comments.Iran razed nuclear sites: US (VERY IMPORTANT/PASS AROUND)
Posted on 06/18/2004 4:36:04 AM PDT by faludeh_shirazi
THE US today accused Iran of destroying nuclear sites to hide banned nuclear activity.
"It's deplorable but not surprising that Iran's deception has gone to the extent of bulldozing entire sites to prevent the IAEA from discovering evidence of its nuclear weapons program," said State Department spokesman Richard Boucher.
"I can't give you any independent information, but commercial satellite photography shows the complete dismantling and the razing of a facility at Lavizan Shiyan.
"And that's a site that was previously disclosed as a possible Iranian weapons of mass destruction-related site," he said.
During a press conference, Mr Boucher was asked about an ABC News report saying that Iran had torn down buildings at an industrial complex in Lavizan Shiyan, a Teheran suburb.
ABC television said the IAEA had recently received information that the site had been hidden.
The network, which did not cite sources, published two photographs, apparently of the site, taken by commercial satellites about 12 months ago and in March 2004, showing the buildings were gone and the top soil replaced.
The ABC report also said that in May 2003, the National Council of the Resistance of Iran, an Iranian opposition group, said the government had built a bacterial weapons plant at Lavizan Shiyan.
Although the US believes the group has links with terrorism, it has in the past used the group's information on banned weapons.
"This raises serious concerns and fits a pattern, as I said, that we've seen from Iran of trying to cover up on its activities, including by trying to sanitise locations which the IAEA should be allowed to visit and inspect."
The US accuses Iran of seeking to arm itself with nuclear weapons under the guise of a civilian nuclear program, a charge the Islamic republic denies.
The IAEA has been examining a draft resolution demanding that Tehran cooperate fully to dispel any doubts about its intentions.
LETS PING THESE BLOODY MULLAHS TO HELL!!!!
I'll feel much safer after we receive reports that the Israelis have razed Iranian nuclear sites.
Now you see it, now you don't.
Hmmmmm... Iran plows tons of sand over their nuclear program so the IAEA won't find it. I wonder if Saddam ever thought to bury anything HE didn't want to have anyone find. Hmmmmmmmmm... (sarcasm/off)
"The IAEA has been examining a draft resolution..."
Hey, the U.N. is "rebuking" them. What more do you want?
Good Morning. Thanks for this post.
As the State Department and British, French, German, Russian, and Chinese governments support and continue to support the killers who are much much worse than Saddam ever was, not only in their acts on the Iranian people, but in regards to setting up international terrorist cells..
While the Media and Government has everyone worried about one dousche bag named Zarkawi they are distracting us from the real picture of STATE-SPONSORED TERRORISM.. Why does the Media and Government think they can keep telling us these are individual cells - some of them are, but much of the terrorism is STATE SPONSORED/AKA THE MULLAHS for sure!!!!
Morning to you too.. time for my coffee - be back, and lets get these blasted MULLAHS!!!!
But he had NOTHING to hide! The NY Times says so..and that's all you need to know.
What's really scary is what we(Israel?) will do to stop this. I would hope (and believe) that the pentagon have plans in the works.
IRAN hiding the EVIDENCE ping...................
FNC has been all over this.
I'm printing this out to go on my office door now...
LETS GET THE BASTARD MULLAHS - THey are a mafia criminal enterprise supported by EUROPES blindness!!!!
