  • Report on whether Iran was making nuclear bomb won't be clear cut: U.N.

    Reuters ^ | Thu Nov 26, 2015 10:51am EST | François Murphy and Shadia Nasralla
    A U.N. report on whether Iran has in the past carried out work related to nuclear weapons will not reach a definitive conclusion on the subject, the chief of the U.N. nuclear watchdog said on Thursday. The report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is required under a landmark deal between major powers and Iran, which provides for a lifting of sanctions against the Islamic Republic in exchange for restrictions on its nuclear program. A clear verdict that weapons-related work occurred would have made it difficult for the deal to proceed, but diplomats have said for weeks that they...

    The Iranian parliament has rejected the formal, legal text of President Barack Obamas nuclear deal, negotiated in July by the U.S., U.K., France, Germany, Russia, China and the Tehran regime. Instead, the majilis approved their own version of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), creating a situation where the Iranian government simply hasnt signed on to the accord that Obama and Democratic Senators obligated the United States to uphold.

    Last night, radio talk show host and former US Justice Department official Mark Levin shocked many listeners when he reported that President Bill Clinton gave nuclear technology to the Iranians in a harebrained scheme. He said that the transfer of classified data to Iran was personally approved by then-President Clinton and that the CIA deliberately gave Iranian physicists blueprints for part of a nuclear bomb that likely helped Tehran advance its nuclear weapons development program. The CIA, using a double-agent Russian scientist, handed a blueprint for a nuclear bomb to Iran, according to a new book "State of War" by...

According to the presidents timetable the next step would be the start day of implementation, fixed for Dec. 15. But as things now stand, Obama may end up being the only person in the world to sign his much-wanted deal, in effect making a treaty with himself. The Iranians have signed nothing and have no plans for doing so. The so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)...

That treaty limit is 1,150 warheads a number that must be reached in 2018. Comparatively, the numbers of U.S. nuclear warheads, missiles and bombers have fallen dramatically and...

Unless Congress changes the law, that is. But since majorities in both houses...

    Members of Congress have warned about the dangers of suitcase nuclear weapons. Hollywood has made television shows and movies about them. Even the Federal Emergency Management Agency has alerted Americans to a threat information the White House includes on its website. But government experts and intelligence officials say such a threat gets vastly more attention than it deserves. These officials said a true suitcase nuke would be highly complex to produce, require significant upkeep and cost a small fortune. Counterproliferation authorities do not completely rule out the possibility that these portable devices once existed. But they do not think...

    President Obama chided Iran for focusing on violent rhetoric rather than doing work to advance its economic interests during his speech Monday before the United Nations General Assembly, saying that chanting death to America does not create jobs or make Iran more secure. That path is now available to a nation like Iran, which, as of this moment, continues to deploy violent proxies to advance its interests, Obama said. These efforts may appear to give Iran leverage in disputes with neighbors, but they fuel sectarian conflict that endangers the entire region and isolates Iran from the promise of trade and...

    A plea from 57 House Republican to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ken) to allow the Senate majority to vote on the Iran treaty fell on deaf ears. At issue is McConnell's refusal to bypass the filibuster of the Senate minority that is blocking a vote on the measure. Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), spokesman for the 57 GOP House members emphasized that "voting on a matter as consequential as the Iran deal should take precedence over the preservation of a mere Senate rule." Although the Senate rule authorizing filibusters has no Constitutional or statutory basis, McConnell firmly rejected Smith's arguments....

Both the Iranian and American governments are going to approach expanded dialogue very gingerly, said James Dobbins, a senior follow at the RAND Corporation. But there will still be a gradual increase in at least communication between the two governments on areas beyond...

A strong agreement that would stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon and stand the test of time was always the goal of these negotiations. Thats why when President Obama declared in 2012 that he would only accept a deal requiring Iran to end their nuclear program, there was hope that...

This cabal is mainly comprised of Russia, China, and North Korea. Since sanctions began being placed on Iran in 1979, with more added since, Iran still had enough free reign to develop its capabilities despite the sanctions regime because of this cabal. All the moving parts are in place, the material is there, and...

    Iranian leaders prevented a top International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) official from disclosing to U.S. officials the nature of secret side deals with the Islamic Republic by threatening harm to him, according to regional reports. Yukiya Amano, IAEA director general, purportedly remained silent about the nature of certain side deals during briefings with top U.S. officials because he feared such disclosures would lead to retaliation by Iran, according to the spokesman for Irans Atomic Energy Organization (AEOI). Amano was in Washington recently to brief members of Congress and others about the recently inked nuclear accord. However, he did not discuss...

    Another roadblock to transparency in Tehran A senior Iranian official declared on Monday that international nuclear inspectors would only be permitted into the country once they receive approval from the Islamic Republics Intelligence Ministry, putting another roadblock between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Irans contested nuclear sites. Sayyed Abbas Araqchi, Irans deputy foreign minister and one of the top negotiators in talks that led to the recently inked nuclear deal, told the countrys state-controlled press that Irans intelligence apparatus must approve of any inspector who is issued a visa to enter Iran. This requirement could complicate efforts to...

    The U.S. came within seconds of launching a nuclear strike on Russia ,unleashing WW3 during the coldest period of the Cold War, according to secret documents revealed by a historian. Washington and Russia came extremely close to a massive nuclear war because of a faulty 46-cent component that caused a computer glitch, according to the documents. The secret documents were revealed and detailed in a book by American author Eric Schlosser titled Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety. The documents include over 1,000 accidents with nuclear weapons that occurred due to the negligence...

    Courtesy of Obama, Iran's mushroom clouds will be produced by detonatingatomic bombs. Obama's mushroom clouds, with help from His friends, have already been and continue to be detonated. Theythrive in the absence of lightand contain copious quantities of bovine fecal matter. This limerick, if applied to Obama, makes sense:Last night I saw upon the stair A little man who wasn't there. He wasn't there again today. Oh how I wish he'd go away!I.

    A House Democrat says hell not only vote against the Iran nuclear deal, but top it off with a bill to authorize military force as needed against the Islamic Republic to keep it from acquiring a nuclear weapon. Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.), ranking House Dem on the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, or U.S. Helsinki Commission, and a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, got quickly to the point in a Palm Beach Post op-ed: After careful review, I have decided that I cannot support this deal. The goal of the recently concluded negotiations was to prevent Iran...

    Obama met with Jewish leaders this week in a private meeting in D.C., followed by a curious speech the next day On Tuesday, President Obama met with Jewish community leaders at the White House for two and a half hours to explain the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Agreement. He spent 45 minutes, laying out deal, speaking without notes, said one participant in attendance. He argued why the deal is better than the alternatives, even as he acknowledged that Iran is not a good actor. The meeting was very emotional, everything was out on the table. The participant told me that...

    It 's a weapon that justifies the use of the word "awesome" to describe its power. The Massive Ordnance Penetrator or MOP weighs in at 30,000 pounds, is almost 20 feet long and is designed to burrow through 200 feet of earth and 60 feet of concrete before detonating. It's the king of the so-called "bunker busters" and is the largest non-nuclear weapon in the world. Delivered by the stealthy B-2 Spirit heavy strategic bomber from as high as 20,000 feet, the MOP hits the ground at supersonic speed before slamming its way toward a hardened target through...

    In a Spiegel interview, former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev discusses morals and politics in the nuclear age, the crisis in Russian-American relations and his fear that an atomic weapon will some day be used. [] It was clear to me that relations with America and the West would be a lasting dead end without atomic disarmament, with mutual distrust and growing hostility. That is why nuclear disarmament was the highest priority for Soviet foreign policy. [] (C)an we really imagine a world without nuclear weapons if a single country amasses so many conventional weapons that its military budget nearly tops...
