The Senate effort to impose more sanctions on Iran with mister warmonger Harvard law grad Chuck Schumer, senior Senator from New York, leading the way is anti-American and sinister. It is a call for war just when the potentiality for a major breakthrough in inducing greater transparency in the Iran nuclear programme is at hand. While the Israel lobby, deeply reflective in the Senate hatred of Iran, will not even publicly acknowledge Israel’s massive, illegal, Non-NPT safeguard nuclear programme, it wants no deal with Iran. As Israel wants no deal with the Palestinians that create a viable two-state solution, with the return to the 1967 borders, and a demilitarisation of the West Bank with full withdrawal of all I.D.F. forces, we see a parallel effort in the “liberal” Senate to railroad the Obama administration’s deftly crafted agreement with the Islamic Republic of Iran.
President Hassan Rouhani, Iran
Here we have a successful diplomatic demarche in which Iran is attempting to find common ground with the late Shah-regime supporters, and an apparent diplomatic resolve on the part of the Obama administration, and the Senate is trying to get a new sanctions bill passed. This is a disgrace and a baby-killing effort to starve the Iranian nation into mass death; an insane and irrational approach to maintain an Israel nuclear hegemony in the region and to look strong on national security as the 2014 farcical midterm elections approach. How shameful is this coterie of Muslim haters, and entitled chauffer driven elites who want to put war over diplomacy as Iran is on the verge of moving toward siginficantly greater transparency with the I.A.E.A. and safeguards under the protocols of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The latter requires that nations that sign it, only Israel and three others in the entire world have not, allow their nuclear infrastructure to be open to inspections from the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency. Israel is part of the Final Four who won’t join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, along with the D.P.R.K., Pakistan and India, because they don’t want to disarm their suicidal nuclear stockpile. If they join as a nuclear power, they would face global opprobrium for having acquired nuclear weapons outside of the N.P.T. Of course Israel has had nuclear weapons for fifty years or more. Everyone except for the US and the Israel Lobby knows that. And they know that too as did the late, great reporter Helen Thomas.
Iran has no nuclear weapons. It has no test site. It has not fissioned uranium at the 90% level of enrichment to make a bomb. It maybe has reached 20% U-235, big deal! It has not weaponised a single warhead or a single bomb that can induce a nuclear-chain reaction. It has not enough uranium in all likelihood to sustain a weapons’ grade programme. Yet it has agreed to greater inspections of its facilities such as at Fordo and Natanz as well as its putative heavy-water reactor, which is under construction near Arak. A heavy-water reactor is of dubious technology: it basically means that it does not need so-called “enriched uranium” to fuel its fission activity but can run on natural uranium. This of course would skip the centrifugal-enrichment process that increases the isotopic concentration of U-235 amidst the ocean of U-238 non-fissionable or very hard to fission isotopes. Yes a heavy-water reactor produces uranium byproducts that can be reprocessed into Plutonium: this is another A-bomb material, that was used by the criminal United States in its holocaust from the sky on August 9, 1945 when Nagasaki was destroyed.
So to the warmongers in Washington who are detested as a pariah state: Let diplomacy play out between Iran and the so-called P5 plus one. The five permanent nuclear powers on the U.N. Security Council, U.S., U.K., Russia, China, France, and Germany. Germany? Why them but they are part of the six v. one negotiating team. Let diplomacy also finally lead to the freeing of the Palestinians as a viable sovereign nation alongside a secure, stable, non-threatened State of Israel confined to its borders and not the land that belongs to the Palestinians.
FISSION? this is when a neutron crashes into the nucleus of a uranium or plutonium atom and knocks the hell out of it. It splits it and in the process creates heat, blast, radiation and fire. So if you have enough of this material, you can fission enough to blow up your house, the neighborhood, the city, the state, the nation, the continent and the world. It won’t be a meteor, an asteroid or green-womyn from mars, it will be us in a nuclear war if the world were to end someday. The latter comes first!!
