    Re: Iran passes redline, has enough U235 for Bomb

    The beating of the war drums by the Neocon propaganda machinery continues. However, the facts do not support the innuendo that Iran wants to acquire a nuclear weapon and destroy Israel.

    1) Iran has about 1,000 of low-level fissile material, which can be used to generate power. in order to use it to make a nuclear weapon, it must be further refined to produce about 55 pounds of high-level fissile material.

    2) Here is the kicker. The material Iran possesses is located at Natanz. International inspectors still retain full rights to inspect that material, and it has not been moved.

    3) According to Admiral Dennis Blair, who heads US intelligence, has restated the 2007 NIE, which states that Iran does not have a nuclear weapon, and neither does it have any kind of nuclear weapons program.

    All smoke and mirrors, folks. If, after this, you believe that Iran has a nuke program, try looking for it under the rose bushes in Iraq. That's where the Neocons said Saddam's WMD's were located.

    Iran doesn't need that much Uranium.

    Actually, Iran is likely to provide these weapons to her proxy terrorist groups.

    Iran is run by a collection of corrupt, zealotus, murderous theocrats. These people do not need nuclear technology. In fact, they should not be allowed anything more dangerous than a sling shot.

    This is your opinion.

    Iran WILL provide those weapons to terrorists. They do not need to have nuclear material and they do not need a spy Satellite in orbit.

    Iran is a threat to global security and they need to be stopped.

    Last I saw the Iranian government was not running around with Ak-47s killing people.. or are we talking about their operations through other, external, agencies? Because I shall condemth thyself with B.S. if you wish to argue that America does not have her own scalawags rummaging through the bussom of her enemies.

    This is your opinion.

    And this is pure speculation or clairvoyance. Oh, so it is a spy satellite?

    Not really. They are only a threat to those who use to exaggerate the capabilities, and the intent of the Iranian Government.
    Iran is not stupid. They understand the dogmatic principles that they enforce are not very well liked by any of the world-powers.

    I do not deny that Reagan gave the Iranians machineguns during the Iran/Contra scandal.

    Liberals always have a hard time grasping this concept. Think of it this way --- remember the Iranian made weapons that the American military took from the insurgents in Iraq?

    Story here: ABC News: EXCLUSIVE: Iranian Weapons Arm Iraqi Militia

    Where do you think those insurgents got Iranian made weapons? FROM SANTA CLAUSE? FROM ACHMED THE DEAD TERRORIST?

    As surely as IED's and Iranian made weapons got into terrorist insurgent hands in Iraq -- nuclear weapons will do the same.

    It's very near-sighted to assume otherwise.

    Officials: Iran does not have key nuclear material
    WASHINGTON Iran does not yet have any highly enriched uranium, the fuel needed to make a nuclear warhead, two top U.S. intelligence officials told Congress Tuesday, disputing a claim by an Israeli official.

    U.S. National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair and Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Michael Maples said Tuesday that Iran has only low-enriched uranium which would need to be refined into highly enriched uranium before it can fuel a warhead. Neither officials said there were indications that refining has occurred.

    If that was true, why does Iran refuse to give its most advanced and powerful weapons it currently has to terrorists?

    Why does Iran limit itself to relatively unsophisticated weapons that most 3rd world countries can build themselves? Why no advanced surface to surface missiles? Why no advanced mines? Why does it limit its support to mundane tools?

    You are saying that Iran will give terrorists the pinnacle of its military arsenal when it has for decades refused to give terrorists its most advanced weapons.

    And you are saying that Iran will be the first country in history to release control over its nuclear arsenal.

    And if Iran really wanted to kill Jews, it would have eliminated the 20,000 and growing population within Iran.

    I think the world at large would prefer that Iran not be allowed nuclear technology.
