How To Solve The Iranian Nuclear Issue

June 1, 2008

Iran isn’t very happy.  They object to an International Atomic Energy Agency report that was critical of Tehran.  Surprise.  What’s new? When is Tehran ever happy about questions into their nuclear program? 

Iran insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.  Energy.  But Iran is sitting on top of huge oil reserves.  They have limited refining capabilities, but that was Iran’s own doing.  They could have built their refining capabilities, but chose to work on a nuclear program instead.  The question the world must answer is what nuclear program is Iran working on.

Starting last year, the IAEA began focusing on probing for evidence of activities that point more directly to a possible clandestine weapons program.

Based on its own information and intelligence from the U.S. and other board members, it has asked-in vain-for substantive explanations for what seem to be draft plans to refit missiles with nuclear warheads; explosive tests that could be used for a nuclear detonation; military and civilian nuclear links and a drawing showing how to mold uranium metal into the shape of warheads. 

This evidence does not point to a peaceful energy program.  When taken in context; considering Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s threats against the United States and Israel, and the fact that Iran is supplying weapons and training to anti-American and Iraqi forces in in Baghdad, as well as trainging and logistical support for Hamas and Hezbollah against Israel; nobody with an ounce of common sense could possibly consider Iran to be a purely peaceful country interested in only a “peaceful nuclear program”.  Unless you consider ridding the world of anything western to be peaceful. 

Iran is a threat to the stability of the world and must be dealt with.  The time for talk and negotiation is coming to an end.  The world has tried talking to Iran for years now.  Thanks to China and Russia backing Iran, to protect their own self-interests, diplomacy and sanctions have failed.  China and Russia will continue to refuse sanctions against Tehran.  If sanctions are approved, China and Russia will continue to use back door deals to get around those sanctions. 

There can only be one way to get around the Iranian problem.  Iran must understand that it will comply, or be eliminated.  Countries like Iran understand only force.  They will use it if they get the opportunity.  It must be used against them first.  Iran must be forced to give up its nuclear ambitions.

    Ah, sorry but you’re repeating a bunch of BS talking points. Iran’s nuclear program started under the Shah with the assistance and participation of the United States — because it makes more sense of them to export their oil rather than consume it at home. And, the IAEA report actually said that Iran is cooperating and answering the questions, and that the IAEA didn’t actually have any evidence of “warheads” etc because the US would not give them the alleged “documentation” so Iran was not able to refute what it could not see. That’s what Para 16 of the IAEA report says. Read it rather than relying on the media spin. See more at

    Under the Shah, Iran didn’t export terrorism. As far as cooperating and answering questions, that isn’t exactly what the IAEA said. Iran is answering some questions, not all, they are doing alot of tap dancing around the serious questions. By giving the IAEA the intel we have, we give up our intel sources. When we lose our intel sources we lose access to needed intelligence.

    Sorry, but that is precisely what the IAEA report says, and the US-installed Shah was busy terrorising his own people so don’t point fingers when your own government was recently arming and backing nun-raping death squads in central america and giving chemical weapons to Iraq and is the biggest arms dealer in the world. Sorry, you have ZERO credibility.

    I was in Tehran in ’78. The Shah had secret police, true, but he didn’t terrorize his own people, at least not like the Revolutionary Guard that was responsible for the murder of more of more Iranian citizens in a few short months that the Shah was in the entire time he was in power. At that time Iran had one of the fastest growing economies in the world. As far as arming Iraq, it was at war with the Iranians, who were our enemies by that time. Guess what, that is how international relations work, just like Iran supports terrorist groups like Hezbollah and Hamas, we supported Iraq against a nation that chose to be our enemy rather than an ally
