Tehran ‘capable of building nuclear bomb’

Tehran ‘capable of building nuclear bomb’ thumbnail

Tehran is technically capable of making a nuclear bomb but has yet to decide whether to build it, a senior adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei told Al Jazeera’s Arabic service on Sunday.

Tehran will also directly respond against Israel should its security be targeted, the report says citing the advisor.

“In a few days we were able to enrich uranium up to 60% and we can easily produce 90% enriched uranium … Iran has the technical means to produce a nuclear bomb but there has been no decision by Iran to build one,” Kamal Kharrazi said.

Background

In 2018, former US President Donald Trump ditched Tehran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, under which Iran curbed its uranium enrichment work, a potential pathway to nuclear weapons, in exchange for relief from economic sanctions.

About a year into Trump’s “maximum pressure” policy on Iran, Tehran started violating the pact’s nuclear restrictions.

Iran has long denied seeking nuclear weapons, saying it is refining uranium only for civilian energy uses, and has said its breaches of the international deal are reversible if the United States lifts sanctions and rejoins the agreement.

Indirect talks between Iran and President Joe Biden’s administration, which aim to bring both Washington and Tehran back into compliance with the nuclear pact, have stalled since March.

Kharrazi said Tehran would never negotiate over its missile program and regional policy, as demanded by the West and its allies in the Middle East.

Recent reports on Iran

Just recently, the US-Israel agreement on the  Jerusalem Declaration of the US-Israel Strategic Partnership includes a joint stance against Iran’s nuclear program and regional aggression, stating they will utilize “all elements of national power” to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

Last Saturday, the US and Saudi Arabia agreed on the importance of stopping Iran from “acquiring a nuclear weapon,” during a visit by US President Joe Biden, a joint statement carried by the Saudi state news agency (SPA) said.

    So the sicko U.S. & IsItReal threaten WW 3. To stave off the inevitable.  After all, Judaic money and Saudi oil must be kept flowing to the last shekel and drop.  After all, what would American bribe-o-crats do without them?  It is much better to maintain the flood of narco-poisons, to destroy the national demographic system and terminate all higher life on earth than to release the Empire’s stranglehold on the planet.

    The fact that Iran may not want to be suffocated by Araby and held at gunpoint by the Chosen Populace matters not.  The Empire has started a proxy war in Ukraine under the guise of protecting that entity’s “sovereignty,” but Iran’s sovereignty is of no account and must be overridden for the sake of “American interests” (whatever those are).

    To the dismay of the slimy tentacled forces in Washington and the ravenous multi-billionaire elites behind them, more and more countries are seeking to join the independent BRICS coalition.  The dollar may not remain the world’s reserve currency much longer.  The only question is whether the U.S., driven by its increasing dementia, is going to take the world down with it.

    Resource exhaustion, global pollution and worldwide bioextinction have already determined the fate of the insane Empire leading the march to planetary death.

    Nukes buy some security from the dying empire, so far. North Korea has them for the same reason that Is-real has them and all the other nuclear countries. Security. it’s why you have a rottweiler and not a poodle if you live in a dangerous neighborhood with the US mafia for a neighbor.

    How to maneuvre a country like Britain into a world wat?

    Answer: leave it to the jews.

    John Mearsheimer described how the Israel Lobby had set up the US for the invasion into the Middle East, and nobody ever refuted him.

    It is less well-known that they did the same with instigating WW2.

    Or Ukraine.

    Or Libya.

    The US has delivered 12 HIMARS missile installations to Ukraine. 3 have been destroyed, the Russians have obtained one installation for study and reverse engineering purposes.

    https://lenta-ru.turbopages.org/lenta.ru/s/news/2022/07/16/rusvesna/

    I doubt that Russia can learn a lot from the US with anything related to war.

    This is the first time I hear Kunstler speculate about an end to NATO:

    https://kunstler.com/clusterfuck-nation/the-last-days-of-joe-biden/

    Good column.

    He is right, Europe is not going to commit economic suicide, just to service US imperial adventures in Ukraine, for 1000 years the cradle/backyard of Mother Russia.

    Russia is not a “superpower” (who is? America? Ha! Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria), but they can clean up Novorossya, certainly if that area is populated by Russophiles, who see the Russians as liberators, not hostile invaders. Expect Russia to incorporate 20 million new citizens and 75% modest Ukrainian GDP, thereby militarily more than neutralizing Ukraine. Game, set and match for Vlad and NATO looking stoopid. What else is new? The EU can have the impoverished Kiev-Lvov axis, everybody happy, except Washington, but they are on the way out anyway, sez now even liberal Harper’s magazine:

    https://www.moonofalabama.org/2022/07/harpers-declares-its-over-the-american-century-is-gone.html

    It won’t be even necessary for Europe to break with America, for Russia it would suffice that the US clears its military bases in Europe and its missiles. France and Germany need to get serious about their articulated intention to offer Russia a security deal and officially recognize Russia as European (Christian heritage, white). It’s too early to incorporate this giant in the EU, but Common Market, why not? And after China expels the US out of East-Asia, military cooperation EU-Russia could quietly increase.

    The idea that the EU of 440m needs protection, delivered by 330m Americans against 140m Russians, who for 20 years tried to become co-tenant of the Common European Home, is ludicrous. America wants the European bitch for itself and use it as a battering ram against the Kremlin, so Washington can install some shady oligarch with the familiar ethno-religeous background in Russia, like was the case between 1991-2000 (Khodorkovsky, Berezovsky), until Vlad the Great appeared on the scene, the man the Beltway hates the most after Hitler.

    Biden’s, Europe is still ‘occupied’ by t US and has been since WW2 (as is japan). There are approximately 80,000 active US troops stationed there today, most in Germany.

    The EU has no real military. They are under armed, poorly trained, and not ready for a war with Russia, or anyone else, with a real military. NATO supposedly trained the Ukraine military for 8 years, but it failed in the first weeks of the Russian correction. Do you really think that the EU ‘military’ would do any better? I don’t.

    Russia:
    Total population – 142,300,000+
    Total military – 1,350,000+
    Russians fit for service – 46,600,000+

    Trying to find the same info on the EU is almost impossible. It is censored so much that it would take hours to put together the same info. But from other articles, it is obvious the EU is controlled by the US and will be as long as it (Europe) exists.

    Absolutely.

    it is obvious the EU is controlled by the US and will be as long as it (Europe) exists.

    Wrong, America is nearly over and by definition its empire:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11032711/Americans-survey-violence-University-California-Davis-democracy-threat-civil-war-politics.html

    “Half of Americans expect a second U.S. civil war within YEARS, more than 40% agree with ‘great replacement theory’ and nearly a fifth expect they will choose to bring a gun to a violent political row, alarming poll shows”

    Europe will be forced to walk on its own feet again. We need a new ally, and that can only be Russia.

    Biden’s, the US plan is to take down the EU before its own collapse’. It is succeeding admirably, while it fails most everywhere else. The pain in the EU is nowhere near what is coming.

    The US will stagger on as long as the dollar is the biggest foreign reserve, which is fast losing that position. The Euro does not have that power. Not even close. Next Spring is going to see a whole different West and it will not be a good one.

    BTW: I don’t think Russia is interested in countries that knife it in the back, steal its reserves, and arm its enemies. Russia has turned East, not likely to return. They are not fools like Amerikans or Europeans.

    “Russia is losing the war”-latest:

    https://readovka.news/news/105077

    Russian FM Lavrov has adjusted his war aims upward and is no longer satisfied with Donbas. The new expanded territorial ambitions encompass Kherson and Zaporizhia oblasts and “other territories” (read: Odessa, Dnipro and Kharkov).

    Lavrov is a very serious politician and no bluffer. He knows what Russia is capable of. He is apparently confident that Russia at least can get Kherson and Zaporizhia oblast and that the other three are optional/possible, but not 100% certain, depending on Ukrainian resistance and foreign aid.

    “Biden’s, the US plan is to take down the EU before its own collapse”

    This is absurd. Since 1933 the real (((US plan))) has been to conquer the entire world, and they have pursued that plan until today. The folks who are really in the know, know this is no longer viable.

    Yep, nukes were entirely built with jewish brains.

    Should give you a clear idea of what is going on in these sinister heads, what their passion is, apart from running gulags, smashing planes in high-rise buildings, setting up the world for WW2 and inventing holohoaxes.

    Famouse, you have the typical arrogance of the West believing no one else is intelligent. If that is so, why does Russia now have the best weapon systems or China the best space systems? The US cannot build anything that works, even at extraordinary cost.

    Keep in mind, that the Persians (Iran) were an empire when the West was still barbaric tribes. Having the ability to do something does not mean you will.

    BTW: Is-it-real got it’s nukes from the US, just as the US got theirs from German engineers, but they are all dead now.

    mak no one who is a climate denier like you can be called intelligent you troglodyte fuck wad.

    Actually you and your troop of Ameri-monkyes are more accurately described as contrarians who would rather chop off their nose to spite their face.

    BTW, as an American you are in a special category that is not included with the west.

    For 55 years I have been listening to you Americans tell me and the world how you are in a “special” category. Indeed, but more like special Olympics than that other special.

    Now that you are an almost collapsed banana republic you don’t get to pretend you are one of us, so fuck off back to your Mormon church and put your magic underwear on and pray.

    BTW how would you know if Russia has the best weapons system? Are you a weapon systems experts? Have you been to Russia and inspected it? Do you speak & read Russian? Moreover I never made any comments in this thread about Russia so why are you addressing me about Russia?

    It’s Biden-clog you want old timer. Not knowing why you are talking to someone is a bad sign old boomer.


    Philippines country most at risk from climate crisis

    The Philippines is the country most at risk from the climate crisis according to a report published in 2019 by the Institute for Economics and Peace.

    The Philippines is made up of about 7,641 of islands off the southeast coast of China. Its geography is one of the main factors for being most at risk from the effects of the climate crisis.

    So what are the main risks to the people of the Philippines, and what can we do to help

    The Philippines has seen increasing storms and typhoons cause havoc with more frequency, however, some groups of people are more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change than others. Though the climate crisis is a human rights issue, a whole-of-government approach is still needed to address ongoing problems left behind by limited relief packages, slow responses from authorities, and excessive waste.

    One of the most prominent and senior German politicians, Wolfgang Schaeuble, has broken a lance for Germany help funding the French nuclear weapons system, “Force de Frappe”:

    https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/germanys-schaeuble-calls-berlin-help-fund-french-nukes-report-2022-07-23/

    In return, the French nukes should be elevated to the European level. All against “evil Putin”.

    I think that at some point there will be a grand deal between France and Germany: European debt against European nukes.
