US To Accept Civilian Nuke Program In Iran
YNet ^ | 6 Apr 2012 | Yitzhak Benhorin

Posted on 04/06/2012 6:20:06 PM PDT by edpc

WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama has signaled Tehran that the Washington would accept an civilian nuclear program in Iran if Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei can back up his recent claim that his nation “will never pursue nuclear weapons,” the Washington Post reported Friday.

According to the report, the verbal message was sent through Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who met with Khamenei last week. A few days prior to leaving for the trip, Erdogan held a two-hour meeting with Obama on the sidelines of the nuclear security summit in Seoul, in which they discussed what the Turkish leader would tell Khamenei about the nuclear issue.

Edrogan is said to have agreed with Obama that the primary challenge faced by the negotiators is turning Khamenei’s public rhetoric into a serious and verifiable commitment not to build a bomb.

So, basically, the Iranians have lied about their nuclear program all along. However, Obama is willing to accept a "pinky promise" they won't use it to build a bomb.

Obama must be worried that he won't be reelected... he is making sure that our enemies will have the nukes they desire.

Obama’s hate and disregard for America and Israel is shown in spades here. And we are stuck with a GUTLESS AND USELESS Congress that will do nothing about him and his criminal destruction of our country.

Any objective look at Obama and Iran seems to show an alliance rather than containment.

Obama is ruthlessly anti-Israel to the point of ‘outing’ beyond top-secret details on Israeli military positions and strengths.

In my opinion, he is ‘actively’ pro-Iranian, not only with the nuclear issue but, with everything in general. He just loves Iran. The oddest thing about this is his Islam comes primarily from Indonesia and Kenya which are primarily Sunni. I'm not sure where he picked up this penchant for Shia'ism. But, who really knows who he is anyway or where he really comes from?

I am sure these is not sitting well with those fools and idiots in Riyadh who gave him a gold medal. But then again, Obama made fools and idiots out of very, very, many people.

Congress knows damn well somethings not right with Obozo and his documents. The proof is out there and they continue to ignore it.

Here's the real kicker. If we the people stand up for what is right, we seditious. We are called home grown terrorist.

All the while, Uncle sugar continues to grossly mismanage the country's finances to the point of national security threat. We the people are to sit by and take it.

Our elected representatives enrich themselves off the sweat of the people, insider trading and all manner of corruption. We are to sit with our thumbs up our butt and just watch it happen.

A usurper in the White House that disgraces our nation by bowing to the Saudi King, sucking the toes of the muzzies and giving our adversaries advantage over us in manufacturing, armament, technology, finances and so forth. We the people under threat of arrest are to just shut up and take it.

Uncle sugar continues to ignore the real threats posed by drug lords along the Mexican border, Islamic radicals in our country, Chinese cheating and manipulating and we the people fall under increased scrutiny.

Government surveillance on American citizens by use of drones, eavesdropping, cameras, web monitors, x-rays on the roadways, airports, body searches and the like.

This is crazy! Scary!

A community organizer would certainly accept the assurances of the 9th Century knuckledraggers currently ruling Iran.However I have trouble believing that Israel would accept such assurances.

“US officials consider this foot-dragging a sign that the Iranian leadership is still formulating its positions ahead of the talks.”

No, this is Obama the Muslim permitting the Iranians to perpetrate more taqiyya, or lying, to further Muslim aims and objectives; all permitted, of course, by the Koran, the Hadith and Islamic law. There are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, “taqiyya” (saying something that is patently untrue) and “kitman” (lying by omission). These two instances of prevarication are generally used to advance the cause Islam by gaining the trust of non-believers (infidels) in order to heighten their vulnerability and, ultimately, to defeat or subjugate them.

He issued this statement AFTER he bowed before the grand imam and whispered, “come on bro... I’ll have more leeway after the election”.

Here’s the link to the original Washington Post article making the claim repeated by the Israeli paper: http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/obamas-signal-to-iran/2012/04/05/gIQApVLDyS_story.html

Like I have said before, we have a gutless and unwilling populace, as well. If Obama can get away with high treason, and the media can get away as an accomplice, then anyone can do it. We ourselves have to change this, no elected politician, can or will.

Get your guns, get to DC, demand impeachment of Obama, rebuild congress from the ground up. Take away their pay, and impose term limits. If they can shit on the constitution to impose their agenda, then we need to restore it using force. The time for talk and niceties is over, because it is obvious no one is going to stop this man and his cronies, his blatant disregard for the law is disgusting.

If Obama wins a second term, there would be no stopping him and his radical anti-American agenda. Without re-election to think about, it would be full steam ahead.

This has always been our policy, even under Pres. Bush.
The problem has always been, that the IRI won’t allow free & open inspections wherever & whenever. They won’t now either, so this is a waste of time, again.

This is Obama trying to kick the can down the road until after the election....and then who knows......

Israel won’t wait that long.

I think it is what the Treaty says (the Nuclear Proliferation one, can’t think of the name now) that countries can have peaceful nuclear power- but I may be very wrong. The problem, of course, is that one can work for nuclear power or weapons, and at first, it cannot be proven which way one will go.

The sad truth is that Obama could hand deliver nukes to Iran wrapped in paper with bows on top and he'd still get 90+ percent of the Jewish vote.

When it comes to Jewish American voters, Israel takes a back seat to liberalism. Always has.

Obama desperately wants to win reelection. He also desperately fears Israel will strike Iran before the election. If Israel strikes Iran, oil prices will spike up in the $200/bbl range, and gas will hit $7 per gallon, ensuring Obama's defeat.

Obama will trade the eventual nuclear destruction of Israel for four more years in office destroying America.

I personally am convinced Obama think it is morally right for Iran to have nuclear weapons, because like the U.S., Russia, China, Britain, and France, they are just another country. I am convinced Obama believes while some consider Iran a rouge state, there are many who consider other declared and undeclared nuclear states like North Korea, Pakistan, India, and Israel to be rouge states. I am convinced Obama thinks it is only "fair" for Iran to have nuclear weapons if Israel does.

I also think secretly Obama utterly hates Israel, and would have no qualms if it were brought down to size (1967 or 1948 borders), or simply wiped off the map. I am convinced Obama believes all of the ill which has happened in the middle east occurred after 1948, and therefore is the fault of the existence of Israel, and the United States support of Israel.

Obama must be defeated in November.

Who asked us anyway? No one called. They’re an exporter of terrorism and kil their citizens who don’t toe the mullah line. So, again how will we know it’s a civilian nuke plant(s)? We don’t and they really want that caliphate so I’m just a LITTLE cynical on this.

>> If he is re-elected, there will be no United States by 2016. <<

IF we get thru this next election cycle and zero wins, I’ll be re-evaluating my prep plans. Our greatest threat is our own government. If zero doesn’t have to worry about re-election, it’s game over.

Stay safe.
