Comments on: West raises stakes over Iran nuclear programme http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/2009/09/25/west-raises-stakes-over-iran-nuclear-programme/ Now raising intellectual capital Sun, 08 Nov 2015 08:31:30 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Ewiak Ryszard http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/2009/09/25/west-raises-stakes-over-iran-nuclear-programme/comment-page-1/#comment-5268 Tue, 29 Sep 2009 21:39:28 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/commentaries/?p=4589#comment-5268 Iran should not arouse concern. Georgia is a flashpoint in Russia’s tense relations with the West. The Bible says: “At the appointed time [the king of the north = Russia] will return and come into the south, but it will not be as the former [1921] or as the latter [2008]. For shall come against him the dwellers of coastlands of Kittim [the West], and he will be humbled, and will return.” (Daniel 11:29,30a) What logical conclusions can be drawn from this forecast? Much suggests that the present economic crisis will deepen, making it possible for Russia to regain the influence, which it lost after the break-up of the Soviet Union. In relationship to this, unavoidable will be the split or even a complete break-up of the European Union and NATO. After that, Russia will come somewhere into the south. Many indicate that this might be Georgia. When this happens, the West will come against Russia. Then Iran will be humbled also. “But ships will come from the direction of Kittim, troubling Asshur [Russia] and troubling Eber [inhabiting on the other side the Euphrates].” (Numbers 24:24a, BBE)

At that time, peace will be taken from the earth and the “great sword” – nuclear sword – will be used. (Revelation 6:4) However, it will be neither the great tribulation nor “the end of the world” (Armageddon). As Jesus foretold, that will be “the beginning of birth pains”. (Mathew 24:7,8)

Free and independent press, hm…

Iran is openly challenging The United States to bring it on. This aint the appropriate time to invade Iran. I hope Obama does not do a Bush, he is much more sensible.
And of course, It needs powerful America to tell Islamic Nations what to do

Obama’s rhetoric is simply to convince Russia to assist, which then isolates China.

With the two remaining veto powers on the West’s side, the sanction and isolation of Iran can begin proper. The stratagy begun by Bush, will be ended by Obama. And the West wins again.

That makes perfect sense is not proof of a nuclear weapons program in Iran. In fact, considering that the West (Particularly the US, UK, Germany and France) were directly complicit in supporting Saddam’s use of chemical weapons against Iran, resulting in the deaths of over 60,000 Iranians (not to mention the Iraqi kurds that were gassed thanks to the American helicopters provided to Saddam) then it is a wonder that the Iranians have sworn off building nukes and have offered to open their nuclear program to multinational participation.

They are making a big deal about those anti-Holocaust comments to turn world opinion against Iran so it won’t look so bad when they attack. The New World Order people are doing a good job. You can’t have a New World Order with all these little petty dictators and Roman-emperor wannabes running around flexing their muscles. After Iran, then North Korea.

“If Iran wants to be able to launch ballistic missiles during a US attack, will it need to shut off it’s anti-air defence systems?”

The anticipation is breathtaking.

He said N. Korea & Iran would not give up their Nukes (Obama’s diplomacy & all).

He saw them for exactly what they were – as Obama comes around to the Bush Administration’s policies on so many fronts:::: Not yanking troops from Iraq, Not closing Gitmo overnight, continuing Renditions, Predator Missile Strikes etc., etc., etc.(as N. Korea & Iran “Spit” in his face).

–Welcome to the Real World Libbies — after your hangover from Drinking the Kool-Aid !!

Who would have thought that a “civilian” enrichment center, being built in a reinforced underground facility, would create suspicion?

Soon there will be further economic sanctions restricting Iran, softening it up and weakening it. Then if it refuses to comply with Western demands, it will be broken by military force.

If America decides to bomb Iran to bits, there is little Iran can do to stop it. A civilian based army can’t shoot missiles out of the sky. If America bombs all Iran’s military and infrastructure, there will be no reason to invade Iran.

What will Iran do? Launch missiles at Israel? Try and block the Gulf straits? All this will do is turn the world against it further. And it certainly will not stop the American missiles from destroying their nation.

Iran can either capitulate diplomatically, or surrender through military force. But either way, it will be humiliated. Such is the price for not being a good neighbour in the global community.
