Skip to comments.Iran's Nukes: Apocalypse Soon?
Posted on 06/08/2011 5:28:33 PM PDT by Kaslin
Terror: Iran is speeding up its nuclear materials production and moving it underground amid reports that the regime is eight weeks from atomic bomb capability. Doomsday, anyone?
Tehran announced Wednesday that it will triple its production of high-grade uranium and relocate enrichment operations underground.
This comes just days after the Rand Corp. determined that the Islamofascist government is less than two months from being able to build a nuclear explosive, and that only an occupation force not just airstrikes can stop it.
On Friday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad repeated his demand that Israel go away. "As long as the Zionist regime exists, if only on a small piece of land in Palestine, the region will not see tranquility," he declared at the grave of the Ayatollah Khomeini.
Year after year, the American people have made it clear they view a nuclear Iran as an unacceptable risk, and the most recent results of the IBD/TIPP Poll, shown above, found that those sentiments remain strong.
Yet the poll also shows a loss of confidence in our government's ability to prevent this terrorist-sponsoring state from joining the nuclear family.
In the years during which Iran has moved toward weapons of mass destruction, the free nations have irresponsibly played a kind of nuclear "hot potato," expecting someone else usually Israel to stop Tehran. But Israel itself is not immune to the trigger shyness: Last month, ex-Mossad chief Meir Dagan said an Israeli attack on Iran would be a "stupid thing."

Israel will strike first. Count on it.
Iran will strike first. Count on it. Here’s some info from a few years ago.
S. Korea, U.S. verifying reports on test of new N.K. missile in Iran: source
(4,000 kilometer rangewill reach London and the VaticanMay 16th, 2007)
Everyone in the CIA and congress involved in the Leak claiming Iran has either ended their nuke program or it was more than 10 years away should be jailed for treason. The knew Iran was still working on their nuke but wanted to undermine Bush. They should all be jailed for a very long time.
World War 3 is inevitable, there really is no other way to clear all the rotting debt in the world. War always has and will always be the last refuge of the Bankers to cover their Fraud.
Let them get it set up. Then drop a couple dozen bunker busters. “Whoops! Sorry!”
Drop a nuke on their site with one of our stealth bombers and claim it wasn’t us, Hey Iran must of had an accident, that’s what you get when you have camel herders with a 7 century mentality working on 21st century technology
Or just nuke Mecca and end that horrible religion, it’s probably only a matter of time before we have to do it anyhow might as well get it over with.
Project David released in 2003 dictates a policy whereby they must preemptively strike Iran to prevent them obtaining nukes because the land mass of Israel is so small it could not survive a nuclear strike. If Israel is nuked they will use the Sampson Option and nuke the 15 to 20 largest cities in the Middle East to “Level the Playing Field”. Otherwise they would be overrun and there would be Holocaust # 2. This would probably put a spike in the price of gas don’t you think? Thinking $37.50/gal. just to pull a number out of the air.
It won't be by Obama! He may not be a Muslim but he is definitely a Muslim Sympathizer!
Don’t leave out the UN and the glorious peace mongers that dwell within.
Don’t leave out the UN and the glorious peace mongers that dwell within.
A contrarian view: Isn't it strange that Iran's nuclear capability was apparently severly hampered, if not knocked out totally, by reports we were reading here just a few short months ago?
Isn't it strange, when all this newly found pressure is getting ramped up against Israel by the current US administration and the rest of the international community, that reports like this start to come out?
Could it be, that perhaps there are some wanting to goad Israel into a preemptive act of war? With the goal of (finally) getting international justification for direct military action against Israel?
Art of War, anyone?
I see it. I also posted hundreds of articles about Iran’s nuclear program a few years ago, but most commenters didn’t want to take the knowledge seriously. Most, being ethnically Euro-centered, wanted to keep the focus on Israel and Iran having a fight.
Also Gates is President Bush’s baby, and Rice worked very hard against Israel during her appointment. ...long list of links for evidence again, anyone?
IMO, a good retired Navy commander told me something to the effect that he was afraid that our nation no longer has the will to fight. He was right.
We need a default and some hard times in order to become Americans again, IMO.
Let’s see....given Iran is projecting testing of a nuclear weapon.....wouldn’t it be awful if it didn’t go as planned?
The headline would be sufficient for most....
You are right about an anonymous weapons strike, but it will be done by Space Command’s assets, no stealth bomber to worry about being spotted.
And likely a weapon never deployed before (that leaves no chemical fingerprint), something along the line of Rods from God.
they know about our busters. they designed for them.
the last strike plan i read about, said it was still possible, but it would require repeat hits on the exact same location. ...tough, when you’re being shot at.
other than that, i read only a tac nuc would work. and that would simply set them back a few years (and get tons of bad press for the Israelis... besides which, probably all the other countries would attack, including now Egypt, under M.B. control. and THEY have 400 M-1 tanks...)
remember, the Iranians are smart. they’re the ones who put together thousands of SCHREDDED documents, after they took our embassy...
But the reactors are only for peaceful civilian power purposes /sarc
The Samson Option is where Israel pulls nukes in on itself, to strike forces overrunning the country.
This was being considered in 1973.
Samson Option is not a strike outside of Israel.
i second that !!! ...don’t need to take out all of Mecca. ONLY the kaada (black meteorite) needs to be destroyed.
and i agree about Obama. strange how after 40 years since he was in Indonesia muslim school, he was still able to recite the Muslim prayers perfectly, in a flawless accent. (according to the TIMES!) ...and that prayer, contains the shahada... the Muslim profession of faith “there is no god but Allah, and Mohammad is his messenger”. saying that, makes you a muslim according to muslims.
..long list of links for evidence again, anyone?
i’d be interested in reading some of them. both about Iran, and about Rice.
...that’s one of my main reasons for being on FR... to learn from people who have experience and knowledge i don’t.
...the only areas i claim good knowledge, is about Islam and the “global warming” hoax. every day here, i am surprised by what i learn here...
As a student of a Catholic high school, the Sisters of Loretta taught me, I am pleased to be at an institution of higher education with such strong and celebrated Catholic and Jesuit traditions . . . You see, I got my Master's Degree at Notre Dame. (Boos.) I acquired a passion for the fighting Irish . . . and my family has been college educated and Presbyterian ever since. (Laughter and applause.) . . . I wandered into a course on international politics taught by a Czech refugee who specialized in Soviet studies, a man who had a daughter by the name of Madeleine Albright. With that one class, I was hooked. I discovered that my passion was Russia and all things Russian.

Wow. From that 2001 article in June:
“Mr Bush pressed Mr Sharon to move ahead with the peace process”
Yes. Thank you for looking. I’m glad that Web page still exists. One point of argument against Israel a few years ago was the claim that Israel wanted to cease to exist, and that President Bush was only grudgingly agreeing.
awesome. thank you Sir.
(that will keep me busy for awhile!)
Wow! Rice said the same thing as Obama, 6 YEARS ago !!!
“The Road Map plan calls for a “viable” - i.e., territorially-contiguous - Arab state in Judea, Samaria and Gaza. Rice, as well, emphasized this point to Weisglass. This means that Gaza must be connected with a land-line to Judea, effectively dividing Israel in half, north and south of the Gaza-Hevron connection.”
I think that Israel will wait until Iran successfully performs an underground test before initiating military action.
why would they waste their precious tiny amount on an underground test?
...instead of testing it on a ship in NY or Tel Aviv harbor?
Road Map to Armageddon
As I understand it they only tested the Fat Man design. They were confident the Little Boy design would work and used it without testing.
But as you say, they’ll want to know, because they’ll want a smaller weapon to put on a missile.
They must be sure it works before mass producing the design.
...a test is a test. there is no benefit for them to do it underground, as opposed to the cargo hold of ship offshore,
or even in the back of a 18 wheeler.
sure, there are dangers and logistical problems, but with the limiting factor now being the supply of fissionable material...
if it fails to detonate, they lose nothing. if it does, they still have their data, AND they kill a lot of Jews, which is their “prime directive”.
Road Map to Armageddon
thank you Sir, that is an EXCELLENT article. great summary.
...it covers MANY aspects, in history, religion, etc.
i would only add a few minor quibbles.
1) they repeatedly speak of the word of Mohammad being unchangable. incorrect.
the Quran is the eternal unchanging unchangable word of ALLAH. (Mohammad was only the messenger, much as PROPHET Joseph Smith was give the power to translate, by God.)
2) they went straight from ancient history to current, ignoring the Balfour declaration, and a binding international agreement to Create a much larger Israel than today.
here, just over 2:00 in:
3) they also omitted the very real miracle predicted in the Bible, that Israel would be recreated “in a single day”.
It is amazing enough, for an ancient Nation to be recreated. Poland did it. but, the UN DID do it, in a single day. This should get the attention even of an atheist...
rest of the article was great, top notch. i wish you would post it by itself as an article. thanks !
I assure you those guys are well aware of Isaiah 66:8
