BBC Ex-USSR: Iran aiming to provoke regional military conflict - Russian exper 91) ☆ By enriching uranium to a higher grade, Iran is embarking on a deliberate course of provoking a military conflict in the Middle East due to its unstable domestic situation, Aleksey Arbatov, head of the International Security Centre of the Russian Academy of Sciences' Institute of World Economy and International Relations, said in a live interview to Russian Defence Ministry-controlled Zvezda TV on 9 February. He also said that Tehran will suddenly announce it has developed a nuclear weapon, and noted that 20 per cent-grade uranium was sufficient to develop a primitive but functioning nuclear device. On 9 February Iran announced that it had started enriching uranium to

Need to provide a link for this.
cent you can create quite a primitive, but nevertheless functioning
Therefore the fact that despite all the beneficial proposals that
Russia, UN and the international community have made, Iran has
nevertheless started enriching to 20 per cent shows that Iran is
simply moving step by step towards nuclear weapons, is playing for
time and is using the talks as a screen, Arbatov said. He also noted
that one day in the future, in the same way as Tehran announced its
intention to enrich higher-grade uranium, it will be announced that
Iran has after all decided to create a nuclear weapon, citing all
kinds of threats.
I will be the first: “Obama’s Fault.” “Democrat Leadership fault.” Pissing away time while allowing Iran to become nuclear. Of course it doesn’t help that our pres-ent and lib leaders WANT IRAN to have nukes.
Doria....do you have a link? I’d love to read the whole article. Thanks! :)
Hold on to your hats.
That’s pretty close to what I expect. Keep an eye on Hezbollah and Syria. I bet Bibi and Lieberman are getting very little sleep these days.
“The Iranian leadership is proceeding from the fact that the United

political reasons. President [Barack] Obama is a president of peace,
he has received a Nobel prize, and it is now just absolutely
unacceptable for him to start his actions by launching a third war
along with Iraq and Afghanistan,” Arbatov concluded.

OK, sorry. I didn’t know it was a translation.
Whew, folks. Things are about to get pretty ‘hugh and series’.
I hope Israel drops/missiles a lot of leaflet into the Iranian cities when they inevitably attack. It’s a vital part of the operation.

Forget Iran’s punch, I want to see their Judy.
BBC has no such story, that I can find.
“He also said that Tehran will suddenly announce it has developed a nuclear weapon, and noted that 20 per cent-grade uranium was sufficient to develop a primitive but functioning nuclear device.”
Can one of the great Physics brains that we have here on FR verify this as a possibility?
Of course they think this.
Why wouldn’t they ?
