Don’t worry Israel, you are in no immediate danger, you have one year before nuclear annihilation … Great news Israel, Iran won’t have nukes for at least eight more Obama vacations and 60 more rounds of golf.
Oh this is reassuring, Obama Administration tells Israel that Iran won’t have nukes for at least one year. Are we really supposed to take comfort in such a prediction from this Administration? The same one that stated the stimulus plan would keep unemployment at 8% and Obamacare would lower health care costs and reduce the federal deficit. All of which were not true. What are we going to hear next from Obama in the prevention of Iran producing a nuclear bomb under the guise of power, that they have the right to like the Brits are saying?
“Remain calm, all is well …”
Iranian television showed live pictures of Iran’s nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi and his Russian counterpart watching a fuel rod assembly being prepared for insertion into the reactor at Bushehr.
“Despite all the pressures, sanctions and hardships imposed by Western nations, we are now witnessing the start-up of the largest symbol of Iran’s peaceful nuclear activities,” Mr Salehi told a news conference afterwards. He described the plant as “a symbol of Iranian resistance and patience”.
The plant, built with Russian help, is expected to begin producing electricity in the next few weeks.
Iran is suspected of wanting to build nuclear weapons. Successfully operating a nuclear reactor will be seen by many in the Middle East and wider afield as a significant step forward for its nuclear industry towards that goal.
Israel has often warned that it cannot live with a nuclear-armed Iran, and there are still fears that Israel could launch a pre-emptive military strike on Iran which could ignite war across the Middle East, although bombing an operative reactor could release deadly radioactivity.
Gary Samore, President Obama’s adviser on nuclear issues, tried to ease tensions among Israeli officials by telling the New York Times that the process of converting nuclear material into a weapon that worked would take at least 12 months.
How could any one say don’t worry when the Iranian regime under an anti-Semite like President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been allowed to load up with nuclear material under the pretence that it is used for power when they sit on vast oil supplies? Ask yourself why a country with such oil energy supplies would need nuclear power? Then again as Weasel Zippers states, Obama will be saying “don’t worry’ as the warhead’s on its descent…”
What is Israel’s response to this … “It is totally unacceptable”.
In a statement issued after the Islamic Republic celebrated the launch of its reactor in Bushehr, Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yossi Levy said: “It is totally unacceptable that a country that so blatantly violates resolutions of the (United Nations) Security Council, decisions of the International Atomic Energy Agency and its commitments under the NPT (non-proliferation treaty) should enjoy the fruits of using nuclear energy.”
So don’t worry Israel you have time, there is notyhing to be worried about. As Jihad Watch states, how unimaginable is it to think of “the idea that the “dying” Lockerbie bomber could, theoretically, outlive your country as you know it, with the current word being that he could make it at least another two years”.
