All of Iranís advanced enrichment centrifuges now removed to Fordo
Debka ^ | 10/16/12

As US president Barack Obama and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney prepared for their duel on foreign policy in Long Island, Tuesday night Oct. 16, Iran moved was on the move to present them with an accomplished fact: Its nuclear program's high-speed uranium enrichment plant has now been entirely sequestered in the fortified underground Fordo site near Qom, debkafile’s intelligence sources report.

On Iran, the differences between President Obama and Mitt Romney are significantly nuanced: Obama pledges not to let Iran acquire a nuclear weapon, i.e., build a bomb, whereas Romney promises to prevent Iran acquiring a nuclear capability, i.e., attain the capacity for building one – a point which US intelligence believes will upon us in six months.

This estimate may not fully take into account Iran’s accelerating momentum. With the advanced IR-2 and IR-4 centrifuges, its enrichment plants can turn out more 20 percent enriched uranium at greater speed than ever before and so reach Iran's one-ton target before then.

Our sources disclose that, racing against time, Tehran managed to install the last four clusters of 174 centrifuges each inside in “Fordo’s B Chamber” shortly before European Union foreign ministers approved toughened sanctions in Brussels Monday, 15 Oct.

Romney takes the Netanyahu position of preventing Iran from acquiring the capability of building a bomb. Barry, naturally, says he’ll just somehow stop the bomb building even after Iran has the ability to do it.

Israel would be insane to trust 0bama’s judgment in any action against Iran, based on his fueling of MB hatred for the U.S. and his stoking the rioters in the ME by constantly mentioning ‘the movie’. Israel, I say go it alone and you’ll be better off. If any of our F22 pilots were ordered to hinder Israel, I hope they have ‘technical difficulties’ and have to turn back, which they will.

It is Debka, but the real reason Iran’s Shia face what to them appears to be an existential threat from the aggressive and militant Sunni Muslims surrounding them is Jimmy Carter’s folly.

The current ME instability is a direct outgrowth of Carter’s imbecility and liberal worldview. Sadly over 40 years later we’re still dealing with the Mess that Jimmy Made.

Cool. The underground facility that has no power source save the large power transmission lines leading to the facility. It would be a shame if those lines had problems again.
