Duh. This should surprise... Uhhh... No one. Damnit. Well, the Israelis have got to move now, insofar as this President is a coward (if he is not a traitor - I still haven’t made up my mind on that count) and will never confront the Iranians. The choice that Israel now faces is either to use force against Iran or to passively await the Second Holocaust.

Are they insane, stupid or just evil?

Obama, the smartest President ever, is there at the UN talking about abolishing nuclear weapons and preventing further proliferation of nuclear weapon technology. He says nothing about Iran and North Korea. He says nothing about the job the UN has done in the past in preventing nuclear proliferation. He says nothing about Baradei and Iran and how the IAEA has missed Iran's nuclear activities and has been totally ineffective.

Obama is just basking in his own reflection. He's just steeping in his high regard for himself on how he wants the best things: no nukes, no war, no poverty. All the while, he's creating the conditions for more nukes, more wars and more poverty. But he means well. He has the best of intentions. And when the world fails to met his expectations, he's going to be so disappointed that the world didn't live up to his standards.

My question, before this is over, how many lives is Obama going to have on that place, where others have a conscience? How much blood is he going to have on his hands.

I predict by Spring, Democrats are going to be the ones asking to see his birth certificate. They're going to be looking for ways to limit the damage this guy is doing to their party. Obama has the potential to destroy the Democrat Party. But a lot of people are going to be destroyed before that happens. Thank you Dems, thank you MSM for not doing your jobs and vetting candidates. You just wanted to win and beat the evil Wascally Wepublicans. You're going to be lucky to live to regret this.

Yes, but the fact that the Iranians are going public with this suggests that they’re near the final stages of their project.

Senior Iranian Official: We Did Not Stop Uranium Enrichment during Khatami’s Presidency

Hassan Rohani, who served as secretary of the Iranian Supreme National Security Council during the Khatami administration, denied Ahmadinejad’s accusations that the reformists had suspended Iran’s uranium enrichment during Khatami’s presidency.

He claimed that one of the purposes of the nuclear dossier negotiations during that period was to buy time to complete the construction of the nuclear facilities in Esfahan and Natanz.

He added that the Khatami government had not suspended for a single moment either the construction of Iran’s nuclear infrastructures or nuclear testing, and that, in contrast to Ahmadinejad’s government, it had succeeded in preventing sanctions against Iran and in making achievements vis-à-vis the West.

Preparation Under way for N. Korean Technicians to Evacuate from Iran
Sankei Shimbun ^ | 06/20/09
Posted on June 25, 2009 2:15:58 AM PDT by TigerLikesRooster

/begin my summary

Preparation Under way for N. Korean Technicians to Evacuate from Iran

It has been revealed on June 20 that N. Korea’s missile and nuke technicians, currently staying in Iran, started preparation to evacuate from Iran, according to a credible source on Mid-East. It is not certain that they will actually leave, but they are definitely preparing for the departure when Iranian (political) situation becomes ‘fluid.’

N. Korean technicians are at multiple sites in Iran, cooperating with Iran the development of missiles and other projects.

In addition to securing personal belongings, the preparation includes equipments and documents which should be kept in secret, such as computers. This is to prevent the evidence of the close collaboration on missile and nukes from being discovered.

The reformist group in Iran are mounting protests over the fraud in presidential election, and (political) tension is rising.

US, Britain and France are to accuse Iran of building a secret uranium enrichment plant outside the holy city of Qom”

SNIPPET: “Stunning news out of Pittsburgh. I have just been on the phone to the IAEA and they are running around trying to put a coherent line together, but they confirm the main facts of story, saying the best account of them to date is David Sanger’s in the New York Times.

The Iranians revealed the existence of this ‘new’ plant because they discovered that foreign intelligence agents had it under surveillance. Later today Obama is scheduled to speak about it. We’ve apparently known about it for years.

This throws the whole timetable of when Iran could have enough material to built a weapon out the window. If we've known about this site for years then the chances are that some form of enrichment has already been going on there even if its not fully operational yet...

If Israel wasn't previously aware of this site, this news could have a dramatic impact on their timeline for taking pre-emptive action.

Iranian Website: Enhanced IAEA Supervision – Proof of Iran’s Flexibility

The Iranian website Tabnak stated that, by allowing the IAEA to install more cameras in its nuclear facility in Natanz, and by allowing IAEA inspectors to visit the heavy water plant in Arak, Iran had demonstrated its desire to break the deadlock in the nuclear talks, scheduled to reopen in November. The site stated further that Iran was operating 10,000 centrifuges and testing 2,000 more.

From CNN Bureau Chief Kevin Flower’s Twitter :

#Israel Foreign Ministry said they have no comment at this time on the revelation of the 2nd Iranian enrichment facility..

@DukeStJournal I believe Ahmadinejad will be holding a 1700 presser in NY today

IAEA : “#Iran assured the Agency in the letter that ‘Further complementary information will be provided in an appropriate and due time.’”

Source: Iran acknowledges second nuclear facility Posted: 05:42 AM ET

(CNN) — Iran has admitted the existence of a second uranium enrichment plant in a letter sent to the International Atomic Energy Agency, a U.S. diplomatic source told CNN.

The letter mentioned the facility, located on a military base near the holy city of Qom, the source said. It is thought capable of housing 3,000 centrifuges, not enough to produce nuclear fuel to power a reactor, but sufficient to manufacture bomb-making material, she said.

U.S. and French intelligence officials have known about the facility for several months, the source said. When Iran discovered that Western nations had knowledge of the facility, it sent the letter to the IAEA.

...................................................................

Just wow. This is a nightmare for Iran. For years they have been denying that there was never a link betweeen their miliary and their 'civilian nuclear power' infastructure. And now we learn that this new enrichment plant is within a military base and is just the right size to manufacture bomb-making material?

Iranian plant ‘serious violation’ of UN resolutions: Paris

AFPSeptember 25, 2009 7:45 AM

PARIS - France accused Iran Friday of committing a “serious violation” of UN resolutions after the UN nuclear watchdog IAEA said Tehran had admitted to building a second uranium enrichment plant.

“We are seeing a new serious violation of UN Security Council and IAEA resolutions. This strengthens our suspicions,” said French foreign ministry spokeswoman Christine Fages.

I've been wondering why the lunatic, heck for leather rush to pass Obamacare.

At first I figgered it was just about the 'Rats worrying that familiarity was breeding contempt.

Now I'm wondering, especially in light of the recent terrorism arrests, if Barry knows that something's coming down the pike that'll blow all interest in healthcare reform outta the water for the foreseeable future.....

If true, care to share, Barry...?
