Thumbs down Iran claims full nuclearization within a year

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday said Iran would celebrate the completion of its controversial nuclear fuel program within Iran's current calendar year, which ends on March 20.

"With the wisdom and resistance of the nation, today our position has stabilized. I'm very hopeful that we will be able to hold the big celebration of Iran's full nuclearization in the current year," the hard-line president told reporters during a press conference.

The hard-line president also claimed that the international community was caving in to Teheran's demands to continue its nuclear program.

"Initially, they (the US and its allies) were very angry. The reason was clear: They basically wanted to monopolize nuclear power in order to rule the world and impose their will on nations," Ahmadinejad said.

"Today, they have finally agreed to live with a nuclear Iran, with an Iran possessing a nuclear fuel cycle," he said, without elaborating.

Can somebody please do something about Iran?

I very much doubt you are referring to the environmental effects of extending nuclear power, so I would advise you to attempt to convince your own government to pursue a policy of nuclear 'disarmament'. Therefore, you won't appear morally bankrupt when lecturing to other countries of the desperate need to do the same.

Speak for yourself as well. The samething can be said about your country. As a matter of fact the samething can be said about my country.

Where in my above post did I state that I supported the UK position? Nowhere. I am opposed to nuclear weapons and nuclear power and have argued against their existence in the UK and elsewhere. It also takes on a great moral potency given that they are all stationed in the Clyde.

There is quite an obvious hypocrisy of arguing against nuclear enrichment activity in Iran, demonising them for being a danger to the world, when maintaining or going through the process of replacing your own nuclear weapons, which the US and UK are both guilty of. The only surprise is that people are still surprised when Iran fails to accede to The Good Side's demands.

Re: Iran claims full nuclearization within a year

nuclear energy for civilan use though is something to consider. It does not emit any carbon dioxide, ths could be a factor in combating global warming. The only inconvinience is the nuclear waste but this could be buried deep underground.

The public does not want nuclear waste buried near them, so it remains to be seen whether they can find anywhere to accept them without outrage. Even if they find suitable sites, there is not a limitless number, so it is not a sustainable solution. This has been so proved in Finland, the birth of the burial theory that Mr Miliband is basing the UK policy of waste disposal on.

This is not even touching on the continual danger that having nuclear power stations presents. Two nuclear power stations have closed down recently due to various pipes leaking radiation (!) whilst another is operating at limited capacity due to maintenance problems. Not only does that show the unreliability of the nuclear supply, but also how the level of danger rises with each new station built.

Re: Iran claims full nuclearization within a year

More likely closer to 5 years, unless they're receiving outside enrichment assistance.

Re: nuclear waste disposal...
I don't understand why countries don't collaborate on an inexpensive and efficient method of intergalactic disposal. For instance, jettison(ing) nuclear waste into the sun?

Someone from Israel companing about another country's nuclear program is funny. They are still trying to build some nuclear weapons whereas your country ALREADY HAS nuclear weapons.

You don't say --- check this article out.

Hersh: CIA Analysis Finds Iran Not Developing Nuclear Weapons

Agence France-Presse

Sunday 19 November 2006

Washington - A classifed draft CIA assessment has found no firm evidence of a secret drive by Iran to develop nuclear weapons, as alleged by the White House, a top US investigative reporter has said.

Seymour Hersh, writing in an article for the November 27 issue of the magazine The New Yorker released in advance, reported on whether the administration of Republican President George W. Bush was more, or less, inclined to attack Iran after Democrats won control of Congress last week.

A month before the November 7 legislative elections, Hersh wrote, Vice President Dick Cheney attended a national-security discussion that touched on the impact of Democratic victory in both chambers on Iran policy.

"If the Democrats won on November 7th, the vice president said, that victory would not stop the administration from pursuing a military option with Iran," Hersh wrote, citing a source familiar with the discussion.

Cheney said the White House would circumvent any legislative restrictions "and thus stop Congress from getting in its way," he said.

The Democratic victory unleashed a surge of calls for the Bush administration to begin direct talks with Iran.

But the administration's planning of a military option was made "far more complicated" in recent months by a highly classified draft assessment by the Central Intelligence Agency "challenging the White House's assumptions about how close Iran might be to building a nuclear bomb," he wrote.

"The CIA found no conclusive evidence, as yet, of a secret Iranian nuclear-weapons program running paallel to the civilian operations that Iran has declared to the International Atomic Energy Agency," Hersh wrote, adding the CIA had declined to comment on that story.

A current senior intelligence official confirmed the existence of the CIA analysis and said the White House had been hostile to it, he wrote.

Cheney and his aides had discounted the assessment, the official said.

"They're not looking for a smoking gun," the official was quoted as saying, referring to specific intelligence about Iranian nuclear planning.

"They're looking for the degree of comfort level they think they need to accomplish the mission."

The United States and other major powers believe Iran's uranium enrichment program is ultimately aimed at producing fissile material for nuclear weapons.

Iran insists it will use the enriched uranium only to fuel nuclear power stations, something it is permitted to do as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

The major powers have been debating a draft United Nations resolution drawn up by Britain, France and Germany that would impose limited sanctions on Iran's nuclear and ballistic missile sectors for Tehran's failure to comply with an earlier UN resolution on halting enrichment.

On Wednesday, Israel's outgoing US ambassador Danny Ayalon said in an interview that Bush would not hesitate to use force against Iran to halt its nuclear program if other options failed.

"US President George W. Bush will not hesitate to use force against Iran in order to halt its nuclear program," Ayalon told the Maariv daily.

Israel, widely considered the Middle East's sole if undeclared nuclear power, views Iran as its arch-foe, pointing to repeated calls by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to wipe the Jewish state off the map.

Israel already has nukes so why worry about Iran?

In fact, the USA under Bush signed a nuclear accord with India much to the profound dissatisfaction of Pakistan.

If you must spread your message of hate, why not spread the 'wealth' to all?
