Comments on: Iran’s nuclear plant and the definition of covert http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/09/25/irans-nuclear-plant-and-the-definition-of-covert/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Caleb http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2009/09/25/irans-nuclear-plant-and-the-definition-of-covert/comment-page-1/#comment-402484 Fri, 30 Oct 2009 14:31:53 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=20568#comment-402484 i think this is a serious issue that could just be a distraction for North Kroea. Also i agree with Bill. no mater how may times we talk with or go to iran, they could just hide anything that they dont want us to see or learn about.

What the media keeps failing to mention is Israel’s nukes and the secrecy surrounding them. There are a lot of lies about the Middle East that keep fueling the fires for starting another war. When does it end?

Actually, I’ve thought all along that if Iran wants nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, fine — but quietly let the people at any potential triger know that they better not even THINK about it, in terms of building nuclear weapons. For one thing, we can be sure the Israelis would attack (and who could blame them?), and who knows where that mess would go? I reckon it would be a dead certainty the U.S. would get dragged in, along with the Arab world and others.

Heck, let’s reach into history and revive “sports diplomacy”! Maybe a football match (as in “soccer,” my fellow Americans, not the NFL/AFL variety)? Do Iranians like basketball? And have the intial match somewhere both nuetral and remote, the latter to make it harder for protestors from one camp or the other to make a bunch of trouble. Maybe somewhere like the far-flung reaches of Aregentina or Chile. Maybe New Zealand?

If there was, he would delete the entire human race, leave the earth lie fallow for a couple billion years, and then try again. This time he would actually make us more intelligent than the destructive parasites, on Gaia’s body, that we are today.

All at once they condemn Iran as being “defiant” for saying the site is open to the U.N. for inspection. And all together they apparently suffer from amnesia — forgetting that the Israelis posses a few hundred undeclared, illegal nuclear weapons. Is this the follow-up to “Saddam has nukes that could be launched in 45 minutes”?

The covert / non-covert issue is moot, it’s just a question of who found out what when. The point is that, were it not for its “leaders”, Iran might be pursuing the same route towards nuclear power as the United Arab Emirates. Using non-proliferative fuels such as Thorium rather than Uranium for instance.

He wants something from the West and disclosing this plant is his messed up way of playing the game. What he wants, I don’t know but he didn’t have to say anything about this plant. He is walking the a fine line between the hardliners in Iran and the growing (and unhappy) moderate population that thinks (and are right) that he stole the election.

Soooooo then Iran says yes we have them (plural). AND then the US says, “Aw We knew about that! (singular)” So NIE was a total fabrication the other day when its Report was released, now obsolete and plainly, Western leaders are just a bunch of Gameplayers and the public is expected to be the pawns. So, what else is new?
We see nothing out of the ordinary. Global aggression continues to cook, on a trajectory that will exterminate 5.5 Billion. You say there goes my credibility? hah! Your gullibility is written on the back of your busticket to hell. Check it! Oh? You didn’t even know they GAVE you one! hahahahahaha
