The only known nuclear weapons development site that the IAEA can't inspect is Parchin. On October 10, 2014 a huge explosion felt nine miles away destroyed Iran's cruise missile delivery system in Parchin. Israel has not claimed credit.
Saddam Hussein did not have a nuclear weapons program after June 7, 1981 when Israel destroyed Iraq's Osirak nuclear reactor but he wanted his enemies to think he did. He did have a stockpile of chemical weapons that his UN Oil for Food cronies were able to transport to Syria without the IAEA's Hans Blix being any the wiser.
Dear Robert, Harry Reid used the "Nuclear Option" getting rid of the filibuster so that President Obama could pack the courts to protect Obamacare and EPA regulations. Perhaps the current Senate majority leader could invoke the "nuclear option" to allow the American people and nine Democratic Senators time to study the Iran Nuclear Deal to see if it is a deal we can live with. The IAEA were allowed to inspect Parchin on January 13, 2005 and again in November of 2005. February 21, 2012 IAEA weapons inspectors were denied access to Parchin and left the country fully expecting a military strike. March 26, 2012 Obama hot-mic incident "tell Putin I'll be more flexible after my election" March 28, 2012 Obama administration leaks that Israel's planned bombing strategy for Iran includes refueling in Azerbaijan. Whose side is President Obama on? May 28, 2012 Flame computer virus reported infecting Iran's computers. October 10, 2014 Parchin base sabotaged with massive explosion taking out Iran's missile delivery capability. On May 23-24, 2011 the EU placed sanctions on over 100 entities tied to Iran's nuclear weapons program, the Obama administration under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton only sanctioned seven but warned 16 others. Note that Iran has a history of pulling the wool over the IAEA. The Clinton administration announced on February 23, 1998 that they opposed Iran's nuclear energy program on the grounds that Iran had sufficient oil and gas reserves for power and that work on nuclear power would be for a nuclear weapons program.On March 14, 2000 President Clinton signed the Iran Nonproliferation Act which allowed the US to sanction individuals and organizations providing material aid to Iran's nuclear, chemical, biological and ballistic missile weapons program. August 15, 2002 Iran sheepishly admitted to the IAEA that it had secretly been building two secret nuclear sites in Natanz and Arak. On August 26, 2003 the IAEA found traces of highly enriched uranium at Natanz but bought off on Iran's excuse that it was Bush's fault. On September 25, 2003 the IAEA found weapons grade uranium near Tehran and the EU-3 made Iran sign the Additional Protocols of the Non-Proliferation Treaty.October 6, 2004 Iran announced that it had produce tons of gas from yellowcake uranium needed to enrich uranium. August 1, 2005 against the IAEA's strong urging Iran decided to resume uranium conversion at Isfahan.In January 2006 Iran defied the IAEA and resumed nuclear fuel research in three facilities that had been shuttered. February 4, 2006 the IAEA reports Iran to UN security Council for violating NPT compliance. August 26, Iran celebrates production starting in Arak heavy water plant to produce plutonium. September 25, 2009 Iran proudly spat in the world's face and announced that they had been building another nuclear facility near Qom. When the Iranian ruling Theocracy is at its weakest it puts on its bravest face. Millions of Iranians had risked their lives demonstrating against countrywide voter fraud like the kind of election fraud that the U.S. only experiences in Cuyahoga County OH and Philadelphia. June 2010 the Stuxnet virus first detected in Bushehr nuclear plant. November 16, 2010 Stuxnet virus halts uranium enrichment and sets program back months. February 25, 2011 the IEAE reports that Iran has overcome Stuxnet virus. On November 8, 2011 the IAEA after finding 8,000 centrifuges in Natanz admitted that the IAEA had been fooled by Iran and that Iran had been building their nuclear weapons program unabated since 2003. July1, 2012 the EU imposed an oil embargo on Iran. February 6, 2013 the US Treasury Department imposed sanctions on Central Bank of Iran. Again notice how Iran is most belligerant when it is at its weakest, on October 23, 2013 Iran announces plans to work with Russia to build 34 nuclear power plants then in November 2013 the Central Bank of Iran reports inflation at 40.3%.Hindsight is 20/20 but instead of releasing oil money at 700 million per month I think we should have pressed for a deal then. The next best time to start negotiations with Iran will be January 20, 2017.
My goal is to educate my readers,
Our country's future looks bleak but the right policies can turn things around quickly. In December of 1982 the US had its highest post depression unemployment rate of 10.8%.
In September of 1983 the US created 1,314,000 jobs and in 1984 our economy grew by 7.3%.
