Nuclear Proliferation Has Passed the Point of No Return

And just to think where the world is at now after this 2008 article. The effects of Russian nuclear blackmail have continued for decades now.

Non-proliferation efforts are dwarfed by the sheer magnitude of the task at hand.

Since the Cold War, the United Nations has logged more than 800 incidents in which nuclear material has disappeared, the Guardian says. The former Soviet storage sites where radioactive material—often large quantities of it—are stored are often dilapidated and poorly secured. Millions of U.S. dollars pouring in notwithstanding, many sites still remain vulnerable to burglary or assault from advanced and not-so-advanced thieves who know how to get a nuclear bomb.

Iran “Deal”: West’s Surrender Triggering War

Western leaders wanted something akin to an agreement. They got something akin to an agreement.Iran’s leaders seem to have spotted pretty soon that Western leaders would willingly concede everything — and possibly more — to get any “agreement”; so that is what Western leaders got. Continue reading

Iran can now build and deliver nukes, US intel reports

Iran has bided their time from a weak Obama administration which has turned a blind eye, and even helped by negotiating a nuclear deal in which Tehran gives nothing up whereas the United States does. ICBMs were previously shot into space under the guise of science and uninterrupted enrichment of uranium has accumulated over time to a sufficient amount where they can produce a few nuclear weapons. In the distant future, perhaps they could mass produce. It’s past the point of no return, and while it’s not condoned here, war is the only viable option although questions remain how effective it will be and what repercussions will be faced.

Tehran has capacity to break out to bomb if it wishes, intelligence chief James Clapper tells Senate, but would be detected if it tried to do so

Iran now has all the technical infrastructure to produce nuclear weapons should it make the political decision to do, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper wrote in a report to a Senate intelligence committee published Wednesday. However, he added, it could not break out to the bomb without being detected.

In the “US Intelligence Worldwide Threat Assessment,” delivered to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Clapper reported that Tehran has made significant advances recently in its nuclear program to the point where it could produce and deliver nuclear bombs should it be so inclined.

Study reveals ‘dangerous weak link’ in nuke security

WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of countries possessing the makings of a nuclear bomb has dropped by almost one-quarter over the past two years, but there remain “dangerous weak links” in nuclear materials security that could be exploited by terrorist groups with potentially catastrophic results, according to a study released Wednesday.

The report said a significant portion of these materials is poorly secured and vulnerable to theft or sale on the black market. Relatively small amounts of highly enriched uranium or plutonium are required to build a nuclear bomb, which is a declared ambition of terrorist groups such as al-Qaida. Continue reading

Major Israel-US rift over Washington plan to let Tehran continue enriching uranium with sanctions relief

Israel announced early Thursday, Nov. 7, that it is utterly opposed to the new proposal for Iran’s nuclear programwhich  the United States plans to put before the two-day Geneva conference beginning later today .

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, when he met US Secretary of State John Kerry in Jerusalem Wednesday night, bitterly accused the Obama administration of yielding to the Russian-backed Iranian position. Should Tehran renege on the deal, the US proposal leaves it with the capacity for enriching enough weapons-grade uranium in 10 days to build several nuclear weapons. Continue reading

Israel issues warning on report on Iran bomb

Although the “ETA” on the final product keeps shifting around from as little as one month, to six months or even two years, depending who you ask and what official report you hear it from, the goal still remains the same. The Iranians won’t likely showcase their true capability until it’s too late to strike. Too late meaning that the attacker, for example, will have to fight an Iran with 50 nuclear missiles and face total destruction for even trying. Buying the time for the development is key in this case, therefore, expect to continue seeing a shifting timeline. News of a nuclear Iran or a strike on Iran should be expected to be news you wake up to one day as 9/11 was for America, not a specific date or just two months away.

A new report that says Iran may need as little as a month to produce enough uranium for a nuclear bomb is further evidence for why Israel will take military action before that happens, an Israeli defense official said Friday.

“We have made it crystal clear – in all possible forums, that Israel will not stand by and watch Iran develop weaponry that will put us, the entire Middle East and eventually the world, under an Iranian umbrella of terror,” Danny Danon, Israel’s deputy defense minister told USA TODAY.

SABOTAGE! KEY IRANIAN NUCLEAR FACILITY HIT?

An explosion deep within Iran’s Fordow nuclear facility has destroyed much of the installation and trapped about 240 personnel deep underground, according to a former intelligence officer of the Islamic regime.

The previously secret nuclear site has become a center for Iran’s nuclear activity because of the 2,700 centrifuges enriching uranium to the 20-percent level. A further enrichment to weapons grade would take only weeks, experts say. Continue reading

Iran’s Nuclear Bomb Program Complete

An article missed missed now brought to light: As mentioned in a previous post, one shouldn’t be surprised to find out that Iran already has already completed its nuclear weapons program. The last four years from a weak US administration certainly could have allowed them to complete the program, while the next four years from the same administration will allow them to deploy their nuclear arsenal. If readers have been paying any attention to the news of late, they will have noticed that the idea of living with a nuclear Iran is being talked about more often and injected into the soft minds of a gradually conditioned public who normally just ‘goes with the flow’. When an ex-CIA analyst  states the intelligence community is underestimating capability and sophistication of Iran, it should be quite noteworthy (and alarming) and it supports the fact of how behind they actually are in determining the enemy’s status.

Iran successfully has built a nuclear bomb with the help of Russia and North Korea and has enough weapons-grade uranium and plutonium for more, according to a source in the Revolutionary Guards intelligence unit.

The source, who has access to Iran’s nuclear program, said the Islamic regime is working out of seven nuclear sites, most unknown to the IAEA, and that its nuclear bomb program is complete.

North Korea has provided the regime with plutonium for nuclear warheads, the source verified, and the last obstacle to overcome is arming missiles with those warheads.
