Iranian Cleric: ‘Having a Nuclear Bomb is Necessary to Put Down Israel’

A top Iranian lawmaker and cleric said that the country’s uranium enrichment program could allow it to build a nuclear weapon “in two weeks” in order to “put down Israel,” according to multiple reports in the Farsi language press.

Iranian lawmaker and cleric Muhammad Nabavian said on Friday that Iran would be able to build a nuclear bomb in “two weeks” if it gets “access to 270 kilograms of 20 percent [enriched uranium], 10 tons of 5 percent, and 20 thousand centrifuges,” according to reports on Iran’s Radio Farda and in Fararu.

“We are not looking for a nuclear bomb, but having a nuclear bomb is necessary to put down Israel,” Nabavian said, according to an independent translation of his remarks provided to the Washington Free Beacon.

In the real world if somebody says “I’m going to kill you” they have given you a green light to respond with extreme prejudice.

Iran will be better off as a nice, brand-new super-sized parking lot...(which is clearly where they’re headed what with all their wild threats against their neighbors and USA)

‘...Iman Obama that we would never allow Iran to have the bomb?”

Not to worry, has the same meaning as the ‘Red Line’ for Syria.

I couldn't agree with you more. What are the US/Israel waiting for?

One day, Israel will say to itself “enough of this sh!t.” The US, Europe and the rest of the so-called civilized western world is ideologically and completely against us.

We must act - full scale pre-emptive nuclear retaliation throughout the region.

Push them far enough and they WILL do it.

The US/Israel are waiting for our radical Muzzie loving sympathizer CIC to leave office. Unfortunately, it looks like time is not on our side.

In the real world if somebody says “I’m going to kill you” they have given you a green light to respond with extreme prejudice.

In the real world, if somebody has made clear his desire to kill you, AND has the imminent ability to carry out that stated intention, then you have the self-defense right to terminate his ability to harm you. If he desires to kill you, but has no ability, or has ability but no desire to use it, then you are not in danger.

For decades, the USSR had the ability to destroy us, but this did not trigger an attack by us, because we could be sure they did not have the intention to enter into "mutually assured destruction". But when a country whose religious philosophy GLORIFIES dying while attacking an enemy, then mere acquisition of capability becomes a justifiable reason for terminating their ability to strike.

Former FReeper Richard Fernandez (Wretchard), lays out the scenario in his Three Conjectures article.

Little Iberian slip of the tongue there. Reminds one of comments made by the Tuco character in "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly."

Always a “cleric”. Always a “Holy city of”. Always a PITA.
