Iran already nuclear Iran Nuclear Watch: Iran Already NuclearNo surprise that Iran is admitting that they have been developing or possess a nuclear weapon, is it?

Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that while Iran is already a nuclear state, it has no intention of attacking Israel. Ahmadinejad was interviewed on the eve of his visit to Cairo, where he will attend the 12th Islamic Summit Conference, due to open there on Wednesday.

Before his trip, he gave a long interview to the editor-in-chief of Egypt’s newspaper Al-Ahram. Although Al-Ahram ran the entire interview only in its print edition, excerpts appeared on Egyptian websites.

Ahmadinejad said the world must now treat Iran as a nuclear country. “They want Iran to go back to what it was in the past, but they won’t succeed. They assume we’ll give in to pressure; such thoughts are misguided. We’re already an industrial and nuclear country, a country that has conquered space. For years we have been thinking about sending a human being into space, and we will do that, with Allah’s help. We must ensure development and growth and bring them to pass, and the world must acknowledge our progress,” he said, adding that the best solution was cooperation with Iran.

Mentioning the possibility of an Israeli attack on Iran, Ahmadinejad said that while it might be easy to launch missiles or attack using fighter jets, Iran’s response and defense capability were important in this context.

So, is this the Iran Breakout Capability moment?

Perhaps.

Now, what will the United States and other Western nuclear powers do?

How about another round of sanctions?

Let the Middle East nuclear proliferation wars begin.

Will Iran give the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt a nuclear weapon? How about Hezbollah? Hamas?

The United States and Europe better reconsider those Eastern European (Poland) missile defense installations – and quick.

Iran’s top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili (L) is pictured before a meeting on nuclear issues with European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana (R), and US Undersecretary of State William Burns (3rdR) in Geneva. World powers’ latest bid to make Iran halt its nuclear programme stalled as high-level talks ended without a deal and Washington warned of possible further “confrontation.

In a shocking surprise, even after the United States dispatched Under Secretary of State William Burns to the meeting, Iran “STONEWALLED” the issue of uranium enrichment.

A U.S. decision to bend policy and sit down with Iran at nuclear talks fizzled Saturday, with Iran stonewalling Washington and five other world powers on their call to freeze uranium enrichment.

In response, the six gave Iran two weeks to respond to their demand, setting the stage for a new round of U.N. sanctions.

Iran’s refusal to consider suspending enrichment was an indirect slap at the United States, which had sent Undersecretary of State William Burns to the talks in hopes the first-time American presence would encourage Tehran into making concessions.

Officials and diplomats refused to characterize the timeframe as an ultimatum, but it appeared clear that Iran now has a de-facto deadline to show flexibility.

The United States and its allies have done all they can do to negotiate with Iran. Iran has stalled for YEARS.

As Flap has said before, time for Israel and the United States to either act or allow Iran BREAKOUT CAPABILITY.
