Skip to comments.It's Official: Iran Will Have The Bomb On Obama's Watch
Posted on 02/20/2009 10:43:21 AM PST by Michael Eden
Obama's about to have his Cuban Missile contest. And to quote a famous phrase to the "O" (as in 'zero'):
"Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy."The IAEA severely underestimated the quantity of uraniam Iran actually possessed. I wonder what would have happened in the election if they'd bothered to get their facts straight.
Remember Joe Biden warning America that President Obama would face a crisis, and it would look for all the world that he had no idea what he was doing, but to place blind faith in his messianic leadership anyway?
Well, brace yourself. Because Iran will take Obama to school and make the US look like a fat stupid weakling just like they did to Jimmy Carter.
When (because anybody who says 'if' is just a retard) Iran develops the bomb, they will have a deterrent to any direct attack by the United States or anyone else. They will be able to unleash international terrorism as they will without fear of retaliation. Soon they will be able to close the Strait of Hormuz whenever the hell they want and shut off the world's oil supply. And they will start an arms race in the craziest part of the world.
The recent International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report states that inspectors uncovered 209 kilograms of low-enriched uranium that the Iranians had failed to declare, which brings the total amount that Teheran has so far enriched to over a ton, enough, with additional purification, to produce a nuclear weapon, officials told the New York Times Thursday.You want to blame Bush, don't you, you snivelling liberals? Bush lied (about Iran's nukes), people will die (under Obama).
Independent weapons experts told the paper that they were surprised by the figures and criticized the IAEA for conducting inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities only once a year.
"It's worse than we thought. It's alarming that the actual production was underreported by a third," said Gary Milhollin, the director of the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control.
"You have enough atoms" to make a bomb, a senior UN official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.
The IAEA report, which was made public Thursday, stated that the new assessment of the total amount of uranium enriched by Iran factors in 171 kilograms of newly-produced material and 839 kilograms of old production. In the past, however, the agency had only reported 630 kilograms of old production.
The discrepancy between the two figures, 209 kilograms, brought the total amount of uranium enriched by Iran to over a metric ton.
Both statements are a reflection of the confusion left by the November 2007 National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran over Tehran's intentions regarding nuclear weapons. That estimate was immediately attacked by the right and disowned by the George W Bush administration because it revealed that Iran had halted work on nuclear weapons in 2003.You appeasing weakling liberal pukes were all over that, calling Bush a warmonger and spouting off about what a liar he was.
The real problem with the NIE, however, was that it failed to clarify whether the Islamic Republic was determined to have nuclear weapons or only to have the capability to build them as a "hedge" against possible future developments.
The difference between those two possible Iranian strategies can hardly be overestimated. If Iran is actually pursuing nuclear weapons, the United States would have to choose between coercive diplomacy on Iran or accepting Tehran's status as a nuclear weapons state and seeking to deter it.
If Iran has a "hedging strategy", however, the United States could take diplomatic steps that would maximize the incentives for Iran to remain a non-nuclear weapons state indefinitely and not risk an international confrontation.
Only Bush was right, and you were wrong.
Oh, by the way, Israel was right, too.
Oh, you liberals had total faith in the international estimates. They were Those Who Could Not Be Wrong. But they were wrong, wrong, wrong.
The only way to stop Iran from developing the bomb - and the ballistic missile to go with it - is to go to war with them and take them out. But the US under Obama won't have the balls to do that. We elected to be a bunch of socialist weaklings like Europe.
Welcome to the world of nuclear nations, Iran. Now the countdown to World War III can officially begin.
and if you think JFK screwed the Cuban resistance.....
That can’t be possible. Everyone loves the USA and Obama. Iran would never use that bomb to hurt anyone. (Sarcasm on)
Yes, Iran will go nuke within the first term of “the one.” But, O will sign a “peace agreement” with Israel to guarantee their security against Iran (and others). Everyone will see this as a circle of people all holding a gun to each others head....and stand down. But only for a few years. After that, things that were bad will go to much worse than anyone now imagines.
You have that right.
We watch the train wreck in progress, stunned that the conductor keeps trying to accelerate to ensure the crash is as big as possible.
Assuming 0bummer’s Stupidity is too kind; he can only actively be trying to destroy Western Civilization. Nobody could be this effective within the first month.
It is as if the Weather Underground planned this.
Exactly right, AGYG.
A scary thought -
Nutjob decides to hit the United States instead of Israel. If Nutjob hit Israel, guaranteed Iran turns into a glassy parking lot.
If Nutjob hits the United States under the current administration, no response? Dems play the heavy head trip on the American people, that it was America’s (and Bush’s) fault? Like we should all get in touch with our inner child? (My inner child would ask “What would Curtis do”. As in Curtis LeMay.)
Wrong. Bibi can see through Obama and his surrounding scum. He will (and must) act unilaterally to prevent a nuclear Iran and this will happen soon.
The Obamateur has a fallback position that Iran’s possession of nuclear weapons is a “right” and that what we must now negotiate is an agreement never to use it based on Israeli disarmament. God help the Israelis if they ever listen to it.
No, no - Iran is at least 10 years away from a bomb.
Besides Iran is a peaceful state, it’s only US saber rattling that makes the world a dangerous place.
And if they have it, they’ll use it.
I agree with you on Israel (probably).
But Iran having a nuke - and particularly a ballistic nuke - will give them impunity to export their terrorism as much as they like, or close down the Strait and cut off oil supplies.
Are we going to risk a nuclear war over that?
We’ve talked about nukes as “deterrent.” But it will be Iran which will have the deterrent.
I’m GLAD Bibi’s our man in Israel. Thank God.
But I personally don’t see Iran launching a nuclear attack on Israel, but rather a conventional attack (threatening the US with the nuke if we intervene).
In other words, I STILL see the Iranian bomb as a threat, but only as leverage - at least in the short term. They don’t have enough bombs yet or a suitable delivery system.
Their practically begging for it.
“No, no - Iran is at least 10 years away from a bomb.
Besides Iran is a peaceful state, its only US saber rattling that makes the world a dangerous place.”
I hope you’re being ironic and joking. Because that’s just nuts. Iran is only a couple of months away from having a bomb if they want it. And Iran is the leading exporter of terror around the world.
He is creating quite an attractive necklass to wear around his skinny neck.
