One has to wonder what is behind President Obama and his closest advisors and all of the other Administration personnel within the Iran negotiations teams that is causing them to take every possible step in avoiding allowing for a straight up or down majority opinion in a nonbinding resolution by Congress. The fact that the agreement being fashioned has been classified as a military arms control agreement which is not required to be ratified as would a treaty; one might be confused as to the difference between a treaty and an arms controls agreement. Apparently the major differences are down to not requiring Congressional approval and are not as binding as would be a treaty thus the enforcement and inspections criteria must be included within the framework of the agreement as well as any punishment or avenues of redress should either party stray from the criteria listed in such a military arms control treaties. Personally, I see these differences as using the invention of a new category which grants certain agreements which would have been included in the general definition of a treaty and thus requiring Congressional ratification, instead are referred to by any word in a thesaurus for treaty which are not separately mentioned in the Constitution are therefore not actually treaties and thus are not required to pass the same tests and standards as the same item if actually referred to as a treaty. So, Secretary of State Kerry and his team are working with the Iranians to set up an agreement, an arms control mutual military arms control scenario defined as anything but a treaty, an itinerary of permissible acts along with forbidden territories placing structurally defined restrictions and limitations upon the Iranian nuclear program with an intent to prevent them from circumventing any provisions of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) and becoming a nuclear armed nation, all of this twisting and mangling of words and terminologies simply to not require Congressional approval as would the identical document if the word Agreement were changed to the word treaty. That is parsing things a little fine, wouldn’t you think?

 

All of this rigmarole and dancing around terminology seems to be a futile attempt to put something in place so that when Iran does declare themselves, either through testing of a nuclear device, simply declaring they have built such a device, or worst case scenario of actually using such a device in an attack upon another nation allowing for President Obama to hold up the United States’ very own copy with actual signatures of a piece of paper and declare that Iran had blindsided the Administration as they have an agreement, accord, understanding, convention, deal, settlement, pact, mutual correspondence, anything but an actual use of the word ‘treaty’ which promised that Iran would not develop any nuclear weaponized devices for ten years and now they went and broke their word, their promise. Then, with tears running down his face, President Obama could sobbingly continue sniffing and puffin between each and every word stuttering while claiming, they promised and were so sincere and President Rouhani shook my hand and his smile was so warm and reassuring and showed his sincerity and he seemed so honest. How could such a betrayal have happened? I am sure there must be an explanation and I will go to any length to get to the bottom of this even if it takes the rest of my time as President, and you can be assured of that. The media will play up how absolutely hurt and taking this as an insult to his person and that President Obama never suspected that the Iranians would be so duplicitous and dishonest and the first he heard of any possibility of this deception was when he, like everybody else, read it in this morning’s Washington Post front page headlines, but be assured that the President is on the case and will find out what went wrong.

 

Meanwhile, as the President only ever finds out about these items concerning national security and any other contentious issue, allow me to direct his attention to the numerous articles from recent reports that according to the Iranian opposition group, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), the complex, called Lavizan-3 located right outside Tehran and is an enrichments center designed to produce weaponized uranium in secret. The entire enrichment plant is buried deep underground and can only be accessed through an elevator which takes on three stories underground where one then proceeds along a downward sloping corridor and then enters through massive lead-lined vault-like doors into the actual facility which has been designed such that it will not permit any trace elements of radioactive material to be detected from outside the facility. These revelations were unveiled during a Washington D.C. news conference by the NCRI who were also the first to expose the elements of Iran’s covert nuclear program back in 2002. Speaking to Fox News the deputy director of the NCRI’s Washington bureau, Alireza Jafarzadeh stated, “This site must be inspected. There is no way in the world you can assure Tehran is not developing nuclear weapons if you can’t inspect those sites, especially if you are talking about a regime that has over two decades of a track record of lying and cheating and deceiving the whole world.”

 

The report released by NCRI tells of an expansive enrichment facility consisting of three distinct corridors which house the centrifuge cascades each one separate from the others to minimize any effects of a mishap or sabotage endangering the other two cascades. The entire construction is over one-hundred-fifty and as deep as two-hundred feet below the surface. There was a photograph of the foot thick lead-lined door and noted the factory was soundproofed and steps had been taken to prevent any leakage being detected of the uranium radiation. This report, if verified, would be evidence that Iran has absolutely no intentions to allow their quest for nuclear weapons to be thwarted by a piece of paper full of signatures, even should such paper be signed on the grounds of the White House, in the Oval Office or in Tehran.

 

We had claimed that Iran likely had other hidden and highly restricted facilities for uranium enrichment and other nuclear weapons facilities mostly placed deep underground and shielded from satellite and other detection methods and accessible only through hidden entrances possibly disguised by placing the entrances within existing structures thus concealing the entrance from any suspicions. It would be as pleasant as it would be dishonest or surprising to claim that this news of a parallel nuclear weapons system was an unexpected revelation. We had been more favoring that Iran would simply refuse to reach a deal and walk away with no limitations on their nuclear weapons program and completely intact. This one enrichment site is probably just the tip of the iceberg and we can expect as time passes for news to surface that Iran has expanded their mining for raw uranium ore from their mines in the northern mountains and that there was suspicious building in that area as well. It might even be possible for the Iranians to conceal an enrichment plant within their mining locations as long as it was sufficiently removed that vibrations from the mining operations would not affect the centrifuges as they are quite delicate and only capable of surviving minor vibrations which might offset their balance. Still, there is very little that we suspect the Iranians to be incapable of accomplishing. Their advances in centrifuge design are a testament to their engineering prowess and their manufacturing abilities. Super-high-speed centrifuges are delicate enough to produce, but their latest centrifuges could be considered to be hyper-high-speed centrifuges as they spin at speeds six times the capable output per centrifuge meaning what with their previous centrifuge cascades they might have required as many as twenty in a single cascade to accomplish what a cascade of three or possibly four of the newest centrifuges, that is a humongous accomplishment in engineering and manufacturing and should be taken by the West as proof the Iranians have the ability, expertise and knowledge necessary to manufacture any form of nuclear device they desire even to include anything from a high-yield thermonuclear device to a low yield EMP producing device and everything in between including weaponized miniature systems every bit as sophisticated of the Western nations’ nuclear devices. Combine these capabilities with the refusal to allow full inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the release by the NCRI of the Lavizan-3 clandestine uranium enrichment construction and its location just outside Tehran and you have the perfect recipe for the secretive, clandestine nuclear weapons device production and a far higher propensity to actually use such a device while continuing to profess their innocence and compliance to the nuclear deal being hammered out in Geneva all while using all means of blocking and postponing inspections indefinitely just as they are currently operating.

 

I mean they can be such deconstructionist while in the midst of negotiations for future inspection, that displays the total contempt that Iran has for the negotiations and the Western nations because they are allowing Iran all the time it required and then some, sitting at a table in a room of a five star hotel in the mountains overlooking Geneva and enjoying the amenities and scenery while writing everything off on their expense account or paying with a government issued credit card. It’s a rough life to be forced to negotiate in such hardship, where do I sign up for such a position as, after all, I doubt my efforts would be any less effective than those currently taking up the issues pretending that Iran has halted all their ambitions placing their centrifugal cascades in lockdown. The new European Union’s Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini just announced, “We cannot miss this opportunity. A good deal is at hand if the parties will keep cooperating as they did so far and if we have enough political will from all sides to agree on a good deal and sell it domestically. We have a series of internal domestic political dynamics we have to handle with care.” After referring to “tensions” which exist in the United States Congress, as well as the upcoming Israeli elections and Sunni-Shiite rivalry in the Gulf region she concluded, “A comprehensive agreement would be mutually beneficial for all sides.” Secretary of State John Kerry was cautiously optimistic claiming, “We expect to know soon whether or not Iran is willing to put together an acceptable, verifiable plan.” Secretary of State Kerry also took the opportunity to insult Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu casting doubts over the veracity and his ability to address the Iranian situation, claiming those voicing their opposition to the deal being negotiated with Iran over its nuclear program are “uninformed.” This was probably an oblique reference to the rumored cutting of Israel from the loop including those given current and up to the minute briefings on the discussions at hand. If I may be presumptuous, allow me to comment on Secretary of State Kerry’s comments with a simple question, is your policy of presenting single elements of the preferred text of an agreement before Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and should he balk you simply discard that term and move on to the next? If so, I predict that at the signing ceremony you will end up with everybody signing a blank piece of paper which will include all the accepted restrictions on Iran which Mr. Zarif accepted, nothing, absolutely nothing. Such a deal Iran has for you, Secretary Kerry. But these negotiations have never been about preventing a nuclear armed Iran but instead assisting Iran to obtain nuclear weapons arsenal under the disguise of nuclear negotiations. This has probably been your assignment from the Oval Office and the Presidential Teleprompter in Chief, also known as President Barack Obama, Ditherer in Chief.

United States Pulls Back in Mediterranean and Israeli MK Bennett’s Letter on Iranian Nuclear Talks

The United States under the leadership of President Obama is currently recalling the Aircraft Carrier Nimitz from the Persian Gulf via the Mediterranean Sea and the Destroyer USS Graveley from the Mediterranean Sea as the Russians have displayed greater strength in the Mediterranean Sea sending “Varyag,” flagship of Russia’s Pacific Fleet, and “Pyotr Veliky” (“Peter the Great”), the nation’s most powerful nuclear-powered battleship into the area. The drawdown by the United States was called for as there was no longer a need for the extra naval presence as the crisis and potential for a strike on Syria has expired. The Nimitz had remained in the area well past her regular rotational time as a measure in case her airpower were to be necessary for any missions against Syria over their use of chemical weapons. There will be some who will refer to the pulling of these two very powerful ships coinciding with the presence of the Russian naval strength but such is not likely the case. As stated, the Nimitz was due back in port months ago and the rotation of naval vessels is a regular part of their deployments. The truth is that the United States had kept a larger than normal presence in the Mediterranean Sea and Persian Gulf over the past few months as the situation required the extra potential and force projection. The most pressing item currently is the negotiations with Iran over their nuclear program.

Currently in Geneva United States Secretary of State John Kerry, European Union Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif are meeting in final discussions over the recommendations for a final agreement proposed by the Iranians presented at the start of this week’s talks. The French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius stated “there is an initial draft that we do not accept… As we speak, I have no certainty that we can finish up.” The French Foreign Minister was not included in the final negotiations nor were the representatives from Russia, China or Germany. Where some will make a point that the Europeans have been leading the charge on imposing stronger sanctions on Iran and this is the reason why the European representatives have been replaced with the more lenient European Union Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton but that call might be a bit of a stretch. The proof will be the contents of the agreement assuming that a deal can be hammered out. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has already pretty much condemned any deal which allows the Iranians to not disassemble their over 18,000 centrifuges thus allowing them to have the ability of restarting them at a later date and manufacturing nuclear weapons before the world either discovered their subterfuge or, even having such knowledge, were able to react and prevent the Iranian nuclear weapons breakout. President Obama was quick to point out that no deal has yet been reached making Prime Minister Netanyahu’s protestations somewhat premature though statements from President Obama in the recent past have indicated that he is seeking any deal which will permit him to militarily stand down and not face any confrontation. President Obama has let it be known that his opinion is even a partial deal for the interim is far preferable to any confrontation and that he recognizes that Iran under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty has the right to enrich uranium to lower levels for peaceful uses. Some have seen the President’s conciliatory statements as a virtual surrender to the Iranian demands that they be permitted to continue with their nuclear program with assurances of solely using it for peaceful purposes and their willingness to submit to inspections including surprise inspections. The main point made is that Iran has agreed to inspections before and still managed to prevent the inspectors from having access to the instillations sometimes for days, sometimes weeks, sometimes longer and in a few cases not at all. This has left some disturbed that such importance is now being placed on the Iranian pledge to submit to inspections as the main point in allowing them to continue to enrich uranium presumably limited to five percent and under. The problem with such an agreement is with their latest version of centrifuges the Iranians now have breakout ability even using low enriched uranium that has only been enriched to three and a half percent. Due to this new parameter, any concerns over the Iranian nuclear program being permitted to keep their centrifuges assembled and operative is a valid and necessary to remember in any agreement point of concern. Late last night the news reports informed that no agreement was reached between Iran and the P5+1 as the talks have ended. Whether or not this is a desirable result, time will tell. No agreement still leaves Iran with over 18,000 spinning centrifuges and at best intermittent inspections depending on the mood of the Ayatollahs. Perhaps it is best to be optimistic and think of this as not the worst result because the sanctions remain which will eventually either cause the Iranian religious leadership to acquiesce or the Iranian people finally throw off the yoke of oppression under which they have had to endure for far too long. For that we have the United States to blame as it was the United States which overthrew an elected leader in 1953 placing the Shah into power presumably to prevent Soviet influence from becoming preeminent in Iran and then in 1979 it was once again the United States which provided the cover for the replacement of the Shah with the Ayatollah. In the immediate future the main aim should be to initially quiet the centrifuges and once they have been stopped from enriching uranium then their dismantlement will be the priority along with preventing any plutonium production at the heavy water reactor in Arak. After these items are addressed and accomplished, then Iran can return to a more normal existence and reacquire normal relations and trade freely as long as they continue to not pursue nuclear weapons capability or other undesirable behaviors.

Transcript of Minister of the Knesset Naftali Bennett’s, of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) Party, Minister of Economy and Diaspora Affairs, and member of the Security Cabinet, letter concerning the potential, possibly pending, agreement between the Iranians and the P5+1 consisting of the five permanent members of the Security Council which are Russia, China, the United States, Britain and France plus Germany is below. For further information on what may be transpiring at these negotiations, please read yesterday’s article Obama Aiming to Emulate Neville Chamberlin.

These critical days in November will be remembered for years to come.

The Free World stands before a fork in the road with a clear choice: Either stand strong and insist Iran dismantles its nuclear-weapons program, or surrender, cave in and allow Iran to retain its 18,500 centrifuges.

Years from now, when an Islamic terrorist blows up a suitcase in New York, or when Iran launches a nuclear missile at Rome or Tel Aviv, it will have happened only because a Bad Deal was made during these defining moments.

Like in a boxing match, Iran’s regime is currently on the floor. The count is just seconds away from 10. Now is the time to step up the pressure and force Iran to dismantle its nuclear program. Not to let it up.

It would be dangerous to lift the sanctions and accept a deal which allows Iran to retain its entire uranium-production line.

It would be dangerous because Iran would, a year, two or three from now, just turn everything back on and obtain a nuclear weapon before the world can do anything to stop it.

It is not enough to shut off the centrifuges. They need to be completely dismantled.

We call upon the West to avoid signing a Bad Deal.

Israel’s responsibility is to ensure the security of its citizens and that is exactly what we will do.

We will never outsource our security.

Obama Aiming to Emulate Neville Chamberlin

One can almost envision Secretary of State getting off the plane and meeting President Obama at the microphones before the gathered press. As the two turn to face the awaiting press they both grasp a sheet of paper and holding it up between them we hear President Obama make his heavily anticipated announcement, ‘We have here a paper signed by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, European Union Foreign Policy Chief the Lady Catherine Ashton, and our own Secretary of State John Kerry which sets the agreed parameters under which Iran will continue their limited peaceful nuclear program under the watchful eyes of the United Nations IAEA inspectors allowing for the world to breathe easier as the real possibility of a confrontation has now been avoided. We will have Peace in Our Time!’ We can expect within the next few days for there to be White House spokesman James Carney at the daily press briefing announcing that President Obama has spoken with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and the two have agreed on provisions and mutual assurances which will prevent any possibility for any unilateral attack by Israeli forces on the Iranian nuclear sites and other tactical targets. There might even be a major policy prime time speech where President Obama flanked by Secretary of State Kerry on one side and European Union Foreign Policy Chief Lady Ashton on the other as the President announces how through prolonged and determined deliberations, years of increasing stiff and effective sanctions and the pressing of will that the world can now rest assured that the Iranians are not pursuing nuclear weapons and mechanisms have been put in place for close, effective and extensive monitoring of the Iranian nuclear sites including snap inspection which can be initiated at any time after forty-eight hours’ notice has been presented to the Iranian government. The President will not be anywhere as efficient in his use of words and this announcement might easily take well over an hour before he completes his ramblings.

The result is almost in the bag as President Obama made it known that he feels that any agreement is preferable to the possibility of a confrontation, even an interim agreement which follows almost to the letter the proposed deal presented by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif at the start of this round of talks. The predilection towards finding a way, any way, to avoid a confrontation, even to the point of ignoring the obvious evidence that the Iranian nuclear program could only be for the production of weapons, has been growing and become so overriding that the feeling that we are witnessing a modern day version of the Munich Accords of 1938 that we are inclined to refer to any agreement attained as the Geneva Accords of 2013 so as to format the name in a similar vein to those historic and infamous accords signed on September 30, 1938, by German Chancellor Adolf Hitler, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, Italian Prime Minister Benito Mussolini and French Prime Minister Édouard Daladier. With the present Palestinian-Israeli negotiations currently also occurring with a definite possibility that should no agreement be reached, which is considered the most likely result that these talks will end just as all previous talks have with the Palestinian representatives stalking out of the negotiations refusing to return until the Israelis decide to be reasonable and meet the conditions demanded by the Palestinians, that President Obama will use his position or the mechanisms of a Chapter Seven Resolution from the United Nations Security Council to force a settlement of his design upon both parties. Such a settlement could easily entail demands for Israel to vacate all but three or four percent of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) as well as all of Jerusalem which was occupied by Jordan before the Six Day War in 1967 along with an equal portion of lands within the Green Line to compensate the Palestinians for the parts of Judea and Samaria retained by Israel. Such a forced agreement would require Israel to dispossess close to three-quarters of a million Jews from their homes, synagogues, and businesses as well as the removal and disassembly of numerous IDF checkpoints, bases and other facilities. Another integral piece of such an agreement might be requiring Israel to provide the Palestinians with a passageway between Gaza and the West Bank where the Palestinians would be provided with free passage without any checkpoints or inspections which would present severe security concerns for the Israelis. The final demand which might make any such forced resolution to result in a conflict would be the forcing upon Israel the absorption of any large number of Palestinian so-called refugees where the numbers could go anywhere from some hundreds up to as many as up to six-million. Any larger end numbers would present Israel with an identity crisis as such a move would grant the Palestinians and the Israeli Arabs a combined majority allowing for them to vote Israel’s Jewish identity into the dustbin of history. Israel could not accept nor permit such an event from being implemented even if it required declaring a state of war against the United States. If you are going to die it is best to die standing rather than on one’s knees.

The earliest signals that President Obama was not ever going to take any actual measures to prevent Iran from attaining nuclear weapons status was in the manner that he allowed a power vacuum in Iraq thus permitting Iran to gain a predominant influence followed by his gifting of Afghanistan in negotiations to the Taliban who eventually refused to even bother meeting with the United States as they realized by doing nothing they would soon gain the tactical advantage permitting their reentry into a significant if not controlling position in Afghanistan which would supplement their control in the eastern tribal lands in Pakistan. Then there has been a slowly burning animosity shown to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu as well as other Israeli officials and statements from figures close to the White House which laid much of the responsibility for any lack of progress towards a settlement with the Palestinians at the feet of Israel along with the making of Executive Privilege to override Congressional bans on further monetary aid to the Palestinian Authority after revelations of payments going to Hamas from United States and European funding. The final two instances that displayed the animosity President Obama has for Israel and his lack of resolve to take actions which might be advantageous for Israel were the demand forcing Prime Minister Netanyahu to apologize to Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan knowing full well that the Turkish leadership would refuse to accept any apology and would utilize it to embarrass Israel and promote their right to leadership because of that apology and the complete bungling and hesitant inaction at the use of chemical weapons in Syria despite President Obama’s strong language of a Red Line that would necessarily change his calculus concerning the civil war in Syria. This led to President Obama being emasculated by Russian President Putin who rode in and saved the day in grand fashion while President Obama made conciliatory statements from the background. All of this is to posit the possibility that at the end of the nine months negotiations or whenever the Palestinians depart the negotiations, whichever comes first, that President Obama is very likely to gift much of the lands of Judea and Samaria to the Palestinians in a similar vein as British Prime Minister Chamberlin gifted the Sudeten Lands of Czechoslovakia to the Nazis at Munich. Israel, like Czechoslovakia, cannot allow the lands of Judea and Samaria, especially the Jordan River Valley and eastern Jerusalem to fall into Palestinian hands without sacrificing all of Jerusalem which is within rifle range from eastern Jerusalem and placing themselves in a precarious position exactly the same as before the Six Day War of 1967. Should Israel be forced basically back to the Green Line and the Palestinians not required to remain a nonmilitary state depending of the Israeli Defense Force to provide security against any foreign attack if any such even presents itself, an unlikely scenario as the Palestinians state would be bordered by Israel and Jordan on the eastern edge of Judea and Samaria and Egypt on the southern edge of Gaza, both of which should be safe and secure borders for them. The parallels to recorded history are too frightening and almost exact to not cause a sane person to worry that we are about to live through a replay of the fateful years at the end of the 1930s which ended with a horrid conflagration.
