Back when Saddam Hussein was actually developing nuclear weapons material and was having the perfect nuclear reactor being built by profiteering interests from France and had bunkers constructed by an equally monetarily enterprising German company and believing they had the world fooled as the Europeans were more concerned by their bottom line and the United States was apparently blithely ignorant of the Iraqi game; so the weight of dispatching the central items of what was potentially the Iraqi nuclear weapons development central point, the reactor was relegated to the Israelis acting alone. The Iraqis were not using the technically challenging uranium differentiation system, which in the early 1980s was a rather daunting challenge, and instead was opting for a plutonium producing reactor. This left the Iraqis with what was apparently an unfettered romp to develop nuclear weapons while appearing to remain compliant to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) of which Iraq was a signatory. And so it remained until the morning of June 7, 1981 when the Israelis launched “Operation Opera” to destroy the French built and almost ready to have its nuclear fuel rods installed Osirak Reactor which was capable of producing weapons grade plutonium. The entirety of the Western world opposed any attack on the reactor or accompanying buildings as the Europeans relied on Iraqi oil or had too numerous business dealings and other profitable relations which may have faced difficulties or potential cancellation should Iraq suspect the Western powers in any way supported any such attack. Even within Israel there were the expected and usual detractors against Israeli actions including the then leader of the opposition Labor Party Shimon Peres, Yitzchak Shamir predicting extreme and non-survivable reactions and backlash as well as those in the cabinet who also opposed any attack for various reasons chief of which was the effect it would have on the peace treaty with Egypt. Prime Minister Menachem Begin still pushed the idea for an intervention to destroy the reactor forward in hopes the Cabinet would eventually see there was no other viable choice. There were logistics problems which had to be overcome such as but not limited to removing external fuel tanks on the F-16s in order to equip them with the heavy munitions necessary for the attack, assign F-15s to guard the bombers to, from and during the attack in case of Iraqi countermeasures, as well as training the pilots to fly on the floor to avoid being detected by any Arab radar and choosing a route which would also minimize detection. The final trigger which finally won approval for the attack was the knowledge that the fuel rods had been prepared for shipment from France to Iraq which if installed would have resulted in a radioactive cloud from any assault making the vote a now or never choice. This changed the critical opposition to now support the attack. The original attack date was set but it became necessary to call off the attack and reschedule it for the next month. Fortunately this setback still permitted the attack to be set before the fuel rods were to be installed in the reactor or even be stored in close proximity to the reactor buildings themselves. The Osirak Reactor was destroyed and Israel faced censure at the United Nations with President Ronald Reagan refusing to use the American veto to protect the Israelis as he too felt betrayed by their attack without first having received his approval, something he had all but assured was not forthcoming even had it been sought. The remainder including the Western world’s great reliefs and their acclamations and thanks, even if belated, that they were not facing a nuclear armed Saddam Hussein in either the first or second Gulf Wars.

 

Looking at Iran one might be tempted to claim that it seems like, if we may be permitted to steal a quotation from Yogi Berra, “It’s like déjà vu all over again.” This time it’s not Iraq but their neighbor, Iran. It is not Saddam Hussein but rather the Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei. This time it is a Shiite ruler not a Sunni ruler though it is once again an adversary of Saudi Arabia. And just like the last time, the Saudis Royals are not about to launch any attack, especially not on their own and highly unlikely they would ally with and accompany the Israelis. The United States is once again against any such attack and threatens to withhold any usual protection at the United Nations Security Council should Israel choose to ignore their opposition and attack anyways. The Europeans are once again all after the rewards of trade agreements they are already salivating over as the United States takes the brunt of any criticisms for the near obvious bad deal of a lifetime as President Obama is willing to take the scorns and suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune if it permits him to construct a new kingdom in the Middle East to replace the old alliances with Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Israel with one where the United States and Iran share the hegemony with Iran the hegemony taking care of the Middle East and the United States free to attend to other concerns. This alliance comes complete with other supporting characters including but not limited to Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and potentially Yemen and whichever other nations the ever slowly devouring appetite of the Ayatollahs set their attentions towards. Additionally, the Russians are playing the role of the Soviet Union in the Middle East and beyond with an unsurprising echo of the Soviet past with the Russian President being Colonel Putin formerly of KGB fame and China will be China taking advantage of any situation the world inadvertently creates, like the need by Iran for an outlet to sell their crude oil. Thus the world is hurling full steam ahead towards a nuclear armed nation which remains the inheritors of the Persian Empire’s proud historic past with all of its attitude of empire which they traded in order to name themselves after the Nazi master race Aryan, or Iran in Farsi, and add to such the trait and heritage of the potentially suicidal belief patterns of Shia Islam and these nations central to permitting this nuclear arming of such a nation all claim Israel has lost it and gone over the deep end when they claim that perhaps a second look might be a good idea.

 

There have been more than just a few articles which point to the fact that the world is relying on good old Israel to ride over the hill and rescue the world from itself once more. They even point to the fact that there exist a number of Sunni nations including but not limited to Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States which would potentially offer their assistance or at least give spiritual support. There is some bad news for the world; it is going to take a whole different level of support if they really expect Israel to suffer the ramifications of and the promised denunciations, trade embargoes, United Nations sanctions, and other barbs and mistreatments in size and scope potentially previously unimagined. Israel has stated that they are quite capable and up to the task of striking and setting the Iranian nuclear program back potentially months or even for over a year or even two years. That is not the question; the question is whether it is worth the severe and unprecedented ramifications that is the main concern for Israel. Israel has to weigh whether it will be beyond her ability to guarantee that Iran has too much to lose by using their nuclear weapons once they develop and build them, whether that be in ten months or the ten years that President Obama promises, making it thus worth the price which would be guaranteed in the retaliatory strikes by Hamas, Hezballah, Syria, IRGC and a guarantee that Iran will use their first nuclear weapon on Tel Aviv no matter what the cost even should it require using it from aboard a ship making a suicide run for the shoreline beaches of Tel Aviv. The consequences of assaulting the Iranian nuclear sites are well known to Israel as well as her neighbors in the Middle East. These are the very same consequences which have intimidated the other nations who, like Israel, will be threatened by a nuclear weapon armed Iran. It is this threat which may well lead to a nuclear weapons arms race throughout the Middle East and North Africa with Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and even the Gulf States leading the way. This too must also be included in the Israeli calculus. The one thing heard repeatedly is that there is no threats which Israel could use to deter the Iranians from carrying out their threat to launch a nuclear attack on Tel Aviv once they have sufficient a store of nuclear weapons to follow up with further strike should Israel retaliate.

 

That leads us to the question of exactly what threats could Israel utilize to prevent a nuclear attack by the Iranians once they are sufficiently armed. The unfortunate, or potentially advantageously, truth about the threats which would be most effective on Iran is that they would also be very disconcerting and threatening to the rest of the Muslim world. It is obvious that should Iran drop any nuclear weapons anywhere, or everywhere, across Israel that Israel would strike every population center across all of Iran, Syria, Shiite Iraq and Hezballah portions of Lebanon and thus these would not be sufficient deterrence to prevent an Iranian nuclear attack on Israel. But then peer pressure may be exactly what might be required to pressure Iran from striking at Israel. The first targets Israel needs to assure Iran will be targeted beyond her borders should be every holy shrine and city in all of Shia Islam. Going beyond this point would be potentially dangerous for Israel as it would also potentially push what might be uncomfortable allies throughout the Muslim world forcing them to become an ally with Iran against Israel. Still, some concern might be given to such targets as to the two cities which Iran has placed as their most prized desire in all the world and the reason that Iran and Saudi Arabia are so set against one another, Mecca and Medina. These are the most prized cities in all of Islam and before World War I were under the care of the Hashemite Royal Family. That changed with the fall of the Ottoman Empire when the Saudi Royal Family forcibly took control of Mecca and Medina. This was the reason behind the British promise to grant the Hashemite family a kingdom in exchange for their assistance during World War I and thus Jordan today ruled by a Hashemite King. Such a threat though of destroying Mecca and Medina would be a counter attack as a last ditch response after a disastrous attack which had likely destroyed the majority of the Israeli population and economic centers simply by striking central Tel Aviv with any nuclear weapon. With such damage already inflicted on Israel there would be so little left to risk as Israel as a functioning nation would be in serious jeopardy. In a perfect world Israel would not be facing such a predicament but then again in a perfect world President Jimmy Carter would not have given the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini the support in dethroning the Shah and thus the Ayatollahs would not be in power in Iran. But in a really perfect world the United States would not have overthrown the democratically elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh placing the Shāh Mohammad-Rezā Pahlavi into power reestablishing the Iranian Royal family. Perfect worlds can be so confusing and lead to a tangled web that takes some serious untangling. I guess the world would never be a perfect place and then who knows if we would actually really like what a perfect world might give us as result, who knows.

The latest effort in the news is New Zealand who claims they will start an effort which will end the Arab-Israeli Conflict. Their premise that the base of the problem is the formation of a Palestinian State with established borders ignores one very simple problem, the Palestinian do not desire a two state solution, they demand a one state solution with no Israel. Their desire is an Arab Palestine without a single Jew left alive between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. They have gotten bolder of late and freely claimed their desire for that solution completely assured that the media will not report their spokespersons making such statements because it does not fit the world’s narrative which blames Israel for the lack of peace. Look back at every last single attempt to find a solution and show me where the Arabs have been pressed to make any sacrifice or effort towards accepting a solution. I can save you the pain and suffering of going through so many promises by outside powers claiming they only want to solve the problem. Every attempt to solve the problem has one assumption at its base, Israel just has to find the right borders for setting up the Palestinian State and everybody will live happily ever after. There is one huge obstacle to that solution, Abbas has repeatedly said the Arabs will not give up their quest to forcefully fight for all of their beloved nations and the Jews have been driven from its shores. Just in case you are still having difficulties understanding exactly what that means, let me put it the way Egypt’s Gamal Abdel Nasser stated the Arab desire so succinctly and so precisely when he demanded the Arab forces would not stop until they “Would drive the Jews into the Sea.”

 

“Drive the Jews into the Sea.” That was the cry of the Mufti of Jerusalem in 1948 as his forces backed by the armies representing seven Arab nations, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and additional militias and troops from Yemen, Turkey, Sudan, and Libya which all came together along with military advisors volunteering their expertise and with no other war grabbing their attentions from Britain, Germany, France and Austria, yes, you read that correctly, Nazi officers and British officers working together to assist the Arab armies to destroy the nascent state of Israel. To put things right, the Israelis were fighting with whatever they could scrap together and on the kindness and extreme efforts of some helpful nations who sent military equipment with little promise they would ever receive payment as the Jews look like they were facing some severe odds, yet still Czechoslovakia sent artillery and armored vehicles along with rifles, machineguns and ammunition. An American Jew in the United States went and bought up all the leftover military hardware which was available in the United States and as he owned a company which made the huge transformers for electrical substations and that some manufacturers require, he attempted to send the outer shells of a transformer with the insides removed and filled instead with military equipment even to include a couple of tanks, armored transport vehicles, Jeeps, Rifles and ammunition until the unit weighed the same as if it had housed the real transformers and shipped them off to Israel from his home city of Baltimore. He knew the dock hands who loaded the ships and they challenged him that he had been shipping an awful lot of transformers to Israel and it is reputed that his answer was that the transformer were filled with military equipment and laughed and then told them Israel was replacing their entire electrical system and needed the transformers. This was his explanation he gave despite knowing quite well that the very same items he was shipping were against the United States government emplaced arms embargo on Israel immediately which was ordered after recognizing her as a nation thanks to the State Department. There were rumored shipments from France which probably had some validity considering that Baron Rothschild was once again back home in France. Somehow the Jewish forces of the Haganah, Irgun, Sternists and other paramilitary and forces considered to be terrorists under British rule and now were a part of the Israeli military preparing to take on an assault they were never supposed to win. In all fairness, there were a number of Arabs communities and extended families who fought alongside the Jews to preserve Israel and these were amongst the Arabs who were gladly accepted as citizens of the Jewish state immediately after the 1948-9 war which Israeli refer to as a war for independence.

 

In reality the initial war to destroy Israel was in some ways identical to every war as they are all fought for survival because every war Israel endures there is one potential outcome every Israeli must face, if Israel loses they will, in all probability, be killed as the forces sweep through the broken shell which had been protected by the IDF and lost allowing communities to be left unguarded as if Israel lost; they had fought to the last available person. Facing the guaranteed wholesale genocidal slaughter of the population should Israel ever be defeated on the battlefield is the motivation and realization as the consequence of failure for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) upon entering any battle. This is part of the reason that Israel having secure borders weighs so heavily when negotiating with the Arabs who demand their own nation cut from the nation promised for Israel and the Jews at San Remo and again unanimously voted into law by the League of Nations as a part of the Mandate Plans. The British Mandate lands had already been split with seventy-eight percent, the area between the Jordan River and the border established for Iraq while the small piece of land westward from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, the very sea the Arab armies of 1948-9 desired to push the Jews into as they cleansed the lands, all of that land was set aside for the Jewish State and not for two states living side by side with one side still trying to annihilate the other side as so many push for today.

 

That brings us back to the European Union imposing a ban on all goods coming from the reputed contested areas. In cases where a manufacturer might be employing banned items in his parts list or recipes, they too will face being boycotted thus, just to be on the safe side, they assure they employ only approved parts. Of course Israel can simply avoid such inconvenience by closing the factories beyond the Green Line and only build items inside the areas the Europeans feel comfortable with, at least for now. There would soon be raging Europeans demanding to know why all the Arabs employed at the factories lost their jobs when the factory was relocated within the Green Line and then demanding that the factory reemploy their former employees from the Arab areas and have then, at each factory’s expense, these former employees provided transportation to and from the new location. Then the Europeans would refuse to buy the products as the price would have become prohibitive due to the added costs of moving and providing rides and everything else.

 

New Zealand has claimed that they will see if they can find the route to restarting the peace process. They will likely try to find what the Israelis can provide Abbas and the Arabs in order to sit at a table and be insulted and demands made for Israel’s eventual destruction and then when nobody is able to convince the Israelis to sign onto a peace treaty which stipulated that the desires and needs of the Palestinian Arab people must remain sacred with all parties fully understanding that such a phrase guaranteed the continued terror attacks upon the Israelis despite the treaty and then the world will decide that maybe if Israel surrenders all of Jerusalem and all of the Negev then the Arab Palestinians will be satisfied. We all know that such would only lead to increased terrorist attacks and an eventual new peace process and a further retreat of the Jews and so on and so on until the Israelis really are living in rafts floating in the Mediterranean which is when the Arabs will demands that the Jews floating in their internationally recognized rights to the Sea be removed. The world will rush to grant them their darkest desires and the Jews will have their rafts towed to the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and then left to drift only to be eventually towed again to the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and yet they will still produce more than the Arabs living on the whole of what was Israel are capable of creating. One will have to wonder what reason the European Union and member nations will find to boycott anything made on half of the rafts as they too should be granted to the Arab Palestinians. This sounds ridiculous but is the end result if the world continues to leave the Arab Palestinians blameless for the lack of peace yet they are the party never satisfied which is why the world has literally run out of sacrifices Israel can give to be permitted to sit and be insulted and the end of the talks the Arabs will walk out or force Israel’s hand to refuse some ludicrous demand with the Arabs knowing full well that this final insane demand will be the first offering in order to lure them to the next round of who can demand the most out of Israel, the world or the Arabs.

 

That is the feeling in Israel as we know and you know and we each are aware of the other’s knowledge that the peace process is nothing more than an international effort to destroy Israel removing this Jewish entity that the world finds so repulsive an idea that it must be eradicated by any means possible. Much of the world sees the existence of the reestablishing of Ancient Israel and the return of Jewish sovereignty as the home of the Jews as an anathema as it contradicts every accepted norm of the world’s greatest defilement and racism, the helpless Jews always just that one step into the perilous direction and the immediate reflex has always been to blame the Jew, even if no Jews resided where the calamity was experienced, then it is the fault of the Jews for not coming to repair the world. Never mind that Israel is often the first on the scene of every disaster no matter where such occurs, Israel may be the only nation which has entire troops trained and ready at a moment’s notice to transport them and their necessary equipment across the globe to assist the stricken. Israel had the first working hospital fully stocked and equipment which the nation of Haiti after they suffered a devastating earthquake. They had delivered their first baby in the maternity ward which was across the field from triage area directing those victimized by nature in order to provide them the assistance necessary. Israel also had search teams trained for exactly this kind of emergency who brought equipment and dogs trained to find victims trapped in the rubble. The Israelis made a number of harrowing and dangerous rescues and even took a dancer, who had lost one leg, back to Israel in order to provide him with a top of the line prosthetic device and he returned to his career dancing like he never had dreamed was possible during the aftermath of the earthquake when he realized he was to lose one leg as it was beyond saving. George was in for a surprise, and we reported on George Exantus, a great dancer and dance performer, amongst a few other discussions which we spoke of in Why Doesn’t Israel Refute the Propaganda Against Her? which has a link to see a video of George performing with his new leg and except for his putting on his prosthesis one could not tell he was not fully functioned with never having lost one leg. If only the world would get to know Israel and her actual spirit and desires to aid all we are able and not have to suffer a disaster, earthquake in Haiti and others around the globe where Israel has been, tsunami, reactor failure as in Japan, and Israel was there as well, hurricane as in New Orleans or of any other calamity where Israel, it turns out, are amongst the first to arrive and provide assistance and often the last to leave making sure all are restored as best as can be expected and medical personnel have been trained to carry on the therapies. We could continue to a disaster in the Philippines where one team of Israelis went to aid a remote village only to find out they were the first aid workers or anyone else to visit their hamlet, let alone come to assist. Here too a child was named Israel in recognition of the generosity and actual caring assistance. Is it really necessary for the entire world to have faced an emergency and actually witnessed the caring heart of Israel extended to assist before understanding our desire to be the chosen to assist others and the chosen to be a light unto the nations during even the darkest of times?

Iranian Threats Greater Value than Their Treaty Signatures

Eventually a package will be presented and signed with great flair, fanfare, flourish, pomp and circumstance far in excess of the actual impact and affect the resolutions will possess, no matter whose version you believe, or the pages full of technical definitions, schedules and rights of inspections, both their scope and priorities and their timing and access as well as any specific particulars either side can impress or force the other side to permit to be woven seamlessly into the text, much of which will not survive the first disagreement or protestation despite their being engraved onto fine parchment pages within fine leather bindings, after all, for any agreement of this stature and importance, only the best quality and refinement will do. We were introduced to a taste of the manner by which the different translations apparently can alter the agreement to such an extent as to define the most simple and seemingly obvious of points, such as, “Snap inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will be permitted with access provided within six hours of their initial notice,” can be translated with great care assuring critical points retain their definitions and intents such that one version of these stipulations reads, “Snap inspections will not be attempted or accepted as such are an insult to the integrity and imply distrust which will not be tolerated.” This was an example as nobody is actually sure of any term or sentences included in the actual Framework Agreement as the likely most accurate translations were laboriously produced by the French and the European Union and in both cases the resulting works were claimed to be unintelligible nonsense. So, the next sets of meetings are being scheduled to be held in Vienna for reasons unknown. Our best guess is that one of those select million dollar poker tournaments will be held over a series of weekends allowing for Secretary of State Kerry to unwind while losing some of his wife’s soaked raison monies. We may be wrong but thought it sounded like as great a reason as that they found Lausanne, Switzerland to be far too chilly and figured that a warmer climate might thaw the sides making an agreement more easily accomplished. Perhaps we should start the next paragraph and stop attempting to be amusing.

 

The whole thing is that Iran has been quite up front about their intentions in so many things which when taken at face value are disturbing enough and of such a nature as to make any agreement they sign suspect simply due to their disdain for the Western world and especially their number one enemy which they claim is ripe and primed for destruction. The Fars News Agency has articles full of gems and many make it into their English editions, like this little gem titledIRGC: US Still Remain Iran’s Arch Foe. After a brief introduction they got right into the meat of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRCG) quotes mostly referring to the world according to the elite units which make up this, the special ops and other forces which are tasked with bringing the revolution to the rest of the world. The article jumped right to an IRGC statement released on the threshold of the anniversary of Ashoura, “The US is still the great Satan and the number one enemy of the (Islamic) revolution and the Islamic Republic and the Iranian nation inspired by the lessons of the great uprising of Ashoura, the eternal guidelines of the late Imam Khomeini as well as the wise and vigilant guidelines of Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei as the roadmap and compass of its movement will never allow the dignity and independence of the Islamic homeland to be threatened and harmed by the will of the enemies.” They continued going for the heart of their message and their lack of trust in the negotiations and tactics while blaming the United States for the turmoil and uprisings inflaming the Middle East claiming, “Contemplation on the bitter realities of today, specially the ISIL and Takfiri plots in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon more than any time before shows that the US is the house of the world’s plots and corruption that never intends to compromise and have real friendship with a popular and independent system that manifests the powerful existence of the beloved Islam.”

 

Another article from the same family titled Rallies Held Throughout Iran to Mark US Embassy Takeover relayed a message of great pride reporting that, “Tens of thousands of Iranians from all walks of life, including school and university students, took to the streets to commemorate the National Day of Campaign against Global Arrogance,” and went on to explain once again that “The demonstrators also condemned the US-led western sanctions against Iran, and stressed that the United States is the main enemy of the Iranian nation.” They also placed further emphasis stressing that “Since the 1979 takeover of the US embassy in Tehran, Iranians have been celebrating the occasion every year by holding rallies on the anniversary and marking it as the National Day against the ‘Global Arrogance’.” The article also explained that the day also commemorated numerous other anniversaries and concluded with a message of “Iranian university students took over the US embassy building to thwart what they called Washington’s plots against the Islamic Revolution. Inside the embassy, the students found shredded documents which proved their convictions.” The article was headed with a picture shot with an angle giving the impression of a large crown of people pressed together but only depicting an extremely small section thus could easily have been a particularly poor turnout as you can see below as we include their accompanying picture from the article.

Iran has made numerous statements since 1979 presenting their hatred and distrust of the United States, the Western world, and their intent to destroy Israel using numerous allegorical and insinuating statements. Of course the first instance we found where words in Farsi do not always mean what any literal translation claims they mean as the Iranians are the ones who decide how each word should translate into other languages and even resort to explaining that there is no accurate translation and if they were to explain the actual meanings of many of their statements the entire Farsi statement would lose all meanings in any translation because other languages are so primitive that they do not have words with the full and accurate meaning including the innuendos, implications, intents and actual and figurative relations between the words thus translation is absolutely impossible. What their disingenuous excuses for the inability of Farsi to be translated to another language is simple, if I may quote the Spaniard, “You Keep Using That Word, I Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means.” Of course there are no words in Farsi for, “Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.” But there likely is a single Farsi word to exclaim the simple command given by Fezzik the giant played by Andre the Giant in response to Inigo Montoya while fighting the crowd calmly requested assistance saying, “Excuse… Excuse me… Excuse me… Fezzik, please?” and Fezzik complied with the unspoken request with a simple, “Everybody Move!” Perhaps somebody should tell all the sides in the Iranian negotiations with the P5+1, which consists of Russia, China, France, Great Britain, Germany and the United States, as they need some added impetus as these negotiations have lasted long enough for Iran to have produced a dozen warheads by the time June 30, 2015 rills around and they very likely will announce to the world that they have grown closer, before growing apart, and with just a few months more and they should be within a lifetime from making a deal both sides can be proud to have pieced together.

 

Meanwhile, the United States can expect the Iranians to continue to stall, deceive and obfuscate all the while spinning an ever increasing number and installing improved quality to accompany the quantity all the while refusing to reply to questions while hampering inspections. The possibility that Iran has been fashioning warheads to match the reverse engineered original deactivated super EMP and other warheads they received during the period where the world was unsure of the status of numerous of the Soviet Union’s nuclear warheads sitting in neighboring nations where they could have been sold to the highest bidder. There were many rumors flying as the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact nations were falling to protests and even outright revolutions where leaders of the Communist Parties needed cash fast in order to reach a safe destination to retire with ample funds for a comfortable life. Selling a few nuclear warheads, even those without their central core making them inert, to an interested party such as Iran who held a fair amount of oil-soaked funds with which to purchase the entire range of such weapons, one should expect that the Iranians took great advantage of this situation. The Russian Super EMP Nuclear Warhead was considered to be in Iranian hands needing simply its nuclear core to be made operational. Of course such a warhead would be worth far more if it could be duplicated by the Iranian scientists, something definitely within their abilities.

 

The probability for Iran to have already manufactured even a single warhead fully armed including having a useable and detonable core, then it must be assumed that they have a couple dozen such warheads, both for EMP and others for regular detonating usage. Iran has presumably been working to produce a nuclear weapon since the early 1990s if not even before then. When one figured that the United States developed and built three devices, one for testing before usage, another of the same type built for use from a Boeing B-29 Superfortress, and another different design which they were so assured that it would be capable of detonation that it was deployed also in the Enola Gay without having been tested. The development of the United States first nuclear weapons systems took under four years. Of course it will be pointed out that the United States managed this under war type conditions where there existed a driving force making the development much faster as it had every top mind necessary working towards the development. The Iranians also believe they are at war with the world. One can see the evidence in the articles referred to at the beginning of the article, and their enemies are Israel and the United States, the little Satan and the Big Satan. These references are the driving necessities matching the same conditions existing back in the early developmental period of the United States. Iran has stated as much and regularly has rallies where the people chant to” bomb the United States” and to “bomb Israel” just as if the two nations, Israel and the United States were at war with Iran. The Iranian People are regularly told that the United States is believed itself at war with Iran and the proof is in the frightening rallies held most often every Friday after prayers.

 

Additionally, the Iranian government regularly has parades where the latest rockets and missiles are paraded before the people with drawings on them as well as notes written saying hello to the United States or Israel in them. These missiles are a part of military reviews which make up many Iranian memorial commemorative parades honoring the military or paying tribute to the Supreme Leaders Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei, or to the Former Supreme Leader and Father of the Revolution Ruhollah Moosavi Khomeini or Commemorating historic events such as the storming of the Embassy of the United States and taking over four-hundred hostages. There are also such parades held when celebrating historic events which have to do with Shia Islam, the Twelfth Imam, Mohammad’s life and other events where these displays of military might are used to impress on the people that their nation is strong and an equal in power against any other nation on the planet, particularly the United States and Israel. The Iranian President, Supreme Leader and other ranking Iranian political, religious and military leaders often in speeches to remind the people that the Revolution will be spread and that the conquest and glory of their Revolution has plans to place its flag over the White House and that their military leadership have designated numerous targets which are weak which they will strike when the time is right and how the exploding of sixty-thousand missiles will bring the entirety of Western decadence to its knees leaving them eradicated as punishment for their arrogance. These displays are very reminiscent of the Soviet Union May Day Parades and other militaristic reviews as still held in China and North Korea putting the Iranians in good company whose history of broken promises and trashed agreement where their signatures on treaties only promised their inevitable disregard unless the treaty had strictly defined methods putting forth exactly how such terms were to be enforced, or as President Reagan would say it, “Trust but verify.” One vital item on every such treaty which was paramount for the “Trust but verify” was the snap surprise inspection. If such inspections are delayed even a single day then one should assume the treaty has been violated and if the other side refuses to include surprise snap inspections, which indicate they have absolutely no intentions to keep to the terms of the agreement. Another telltale sign that the one side intends to ignore and break even the intents of an agreement is when they demand that their reward be granted upon signing and not delivered in stages after proof of compliance. It is interesting that the Iranians are refusing to permit snap inspections, inspections of military instillations where work might be underway in violation of the treaty, the obligation to answer questions about present and past military applications which have been or are being undertaken, and the Iranians are demanding the complete removal of all sanctions immediately upon the signing of any agreement. If you require any further proof that the Iranians are not planning on keeping any of their obligations to any treaty then you must have been one of those who negotiated with former President Carter at the behest of President Clinton with the North Koreans to prevent their becoming a nuclear weapons power, oh wait, many of the people working on this deal from the State Department are the same ones they had negotiate with North Korea, whatever could go wrong? My bet is that Secretary of State Kerry, in grand fashion very similar to that of President Carter, will announce how this treaty guarantees Iran will be unable to develop and manufacture nuclear weapons for at least ten to fifteen years. This announcement will likely be followed within eighteen months an Iranian test of a nuclear weapon, the best case scenario, or the worst case scenario the Iranians will use nuclear weapons as the initial strike to be followed by their invading the target nation, if it should be as we would expect, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the Gulf States taking control of the remainder of the largest oil fields currently active in the immediate area of Iran and their puppet state of Iraq.

 

We have made a Page with select Military Displays of military parade reviews to give you a smattering of the troops and some of their weapons and missiles with an emphasis on their ballistic missiles. We will be needing at some future date to include pictures of the Russian S-300 series anti-aircraft radars and missile systems, one of the top systems of its kind in the world assessed to equal or possibly surpass the United States Patriot Missile Batteries. The inclusion of these systems will make any airstrike on Iran very costly demanding that either a large force of fourth generation aircraft or an attack force comprised of stealth aircraft if one is to overcome these systems. They are a game changer and Vladimir Putin, or as we like to refer to him, Vlad the Invader, knows full well that the S-300 anti-aircraft system may technically be a defensive system incapable of attacking any nation in itself, its ability to defeat virtually any air assault by any nation save the United States would prove so costly that no nation in the Middle East could dare attack Iran and deter their drive to nuclear weapons capabilities as it would make their enrichment and other facilities near impossible to strike with aircraft, cruise missiles or medium range ballistic missiles thus making the Iranian path to nuclear armaments a well paved six lane freeway without even a single pothole. So much for the S-300 being merely defensive when it guards the Iranian capability to produce nuclear weapons and the ballistic missiles on which to deliver them to their targets.
