    Iran Nuclear Watch: Iran May Be Hiding Secret Nukes

    Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: “Iran will break the hands of invaders if attacked.

    As Iran’s President departs for New York and the United Nations there are a couple of stories about Iran’s covert nuclear program.

    Chief inspector: Iran may be hiding secret nukes

    The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency warned Monday that Iran may be hiding secret nuclear activities, comments that appeared to reflect a high level of frustration with stonewalling of his investigators.

    IAEA head Mohamed ElBaradei said Iran’s stonewalling of his agency was a “serious concern.”

    “Iran needs to give the agency substantive information” to clear up suspicions, he told the closed board meeting, in comments made available to reporters. He rejected the Iranian suggestion that the IAEA probe could expose non-nuclear military secrets, saying the IAEA “does not in any way seek to ‘pry’ into Iran’s conventional or missile-related military activities.”

    “We need, however, to make use of all relevant information to be able to confirm that no nuclear material is being used for nuclear weapons purposes,” he said, urging Iran to “implement all measures required to build confidence in the exclusively peaceful nature of its nuclear program at the earliest possible date.”

    If Tehran fails to do so, the IAEA “will not be able to provide credible assurances about the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran,” he said.

    Diplomats at the gathering described ElBaradei’s comments as unusually blunt…..

    Military intelligence: Iran halfway to first nuclear bomb

    Iran is halfway to a nuclear bomb, and Hizbullah, Hamas and Syria are using this period of relative calm to significantly rearm, Brig.-Gen. Yossi Baidatz, the Military Intelligence’s head of research, told the cabinet Sunday during a particularly gloomy briefing on the threats facing the country.

    Ahmadinejad: We’ll stop any attacker

    Baidatz said there was a growing gap between Iran’s progress on the nuclear front and the West’s determination to stop it. “Iran is concentrating on uranium enrichment, and is making progress,” he said, noting that they have improved the function of their 4,000 centrifuges.

    According to Baidatz, the Iranian centrifuges have so far produced between one-third to one-half of the enriched material needed to build a bomb.

    “The time when they will have crossed the nuclear point-of-no-return is fast approaching,” he said, though he stopped short of giving a firm deadline. Last week in the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, however, he put the date at 2011.

    President Bush has decided to punt this issue to the next President and the United Nations is doing nothing but beat their gums about Iran’s non-compliance with inspections.

    Israel is now talking about BREAKOUT CAPABILITY.

    The attack on Iran is coming unless Iran backs off. But, the Iranian Mullahs do not think the West has the stomach for more war in the Middle East.

    The alternative will be the destruction of Israel through nuclear blackmail or another holocaust – this time a nuclear one.

    Stay tuned……

    Iran Nuclear Watch: More Nuclear Power Plants


    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (centre) and unidentified officials are pictured at a space station at an undisclosed location in Iran on August 16. Iran has said that a home-built rocket sent into space in a move that triggered US concern over possible military use will be able to take a satellite into low orbit around the earth

    More targets for the Israeli Air Force.

    Iran’s official news agency says the country is preparing to build more nuclear power plants.

    Tuesday’s IRNA report quotes Ahmad Fayyazbakhsh, the head of a state-owned nuclear energy production company.

    He says his company signed agreements with other domestic firms to find locations to build new nuclear power plants. He says the process could take about 13 months.

    Iran has previously announced plans to build six more nuclear power plants by 2021.

    Iran rubs Israel’s nose in the development of ultimate weapon. In the meantime, the uranium enrichment centrifuges continue to spin at Natanz as Iran’s nuclear weapon development program continues unabated.

    Iran Nuclear Watch: Iran Defies Deadline

    +++++House GOP Protest Update+++++

    Watch here


    Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is seen in Tehran August 2, 2008. The United States said on Sunday that Iran has left the U.N. Security Council no choice but to increase sanctions on the Islamic Republic for ignoring demands that it halt sensitive nuclear activities

    No shock here with, again, Iran demonstrating its desire to continue on its nuclear weapons development program.

    Iran said on Saturday it would not back down “one iota” in its nuclear row with major powers, voicing defiance on the day of an informal deadline set by the West over Tehran’s disputed atomic ambitions.

    Western officials gave Tehran two weeks from July 19 to respond to their offer to hold off from imposing more U.N. sanctions on Iran if it froze any expansion of its nuclear work.

    That would suggest a deadline of Saturday but Iran, which has repeatedly ruled out curbing its nuclear activities, dismissed the idea of having two weeks to reply.

    The West accuses Iran of seeking to build nuclear warheads under cover of a civilian power program. Iran, the world’s fourth-largest oil producer, denies the charge.

    “In whichever negotiation we take part … it is unequivocally with the view to the realization of Iran’s nuclear right and the Iranian nation would not retreat one iota from its rights,” President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said.

    And, the United States plus Europe will persue new sanctions ad nauseum.

    Flap does not think Israel will wait much longer.

    Iran Nuclear Watch: 5000-6000 Uranium Enrichment Centrifuges


    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gestures as he speaks during a news conference after the Eight Developing Islamic Nations summit in Kuala Lumpur July 8, 2008. Iran is running more than 5,000 centrifuges for enriching uranium, its president was quoted as saying on Saturday, in comments suggesting continued expansion of work the West fears is aimed at making bombs

    Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced today that Iran is running between 5,000 and 6,000 uranium enrichment centrifuges.

    Iran has more than 5,000 active centrifuges for enriching uranium, its president was quoted as saying on Saturday, suggesting a rapid expansion of nuclear work the West suspects is aimed at making bombs.

    President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s announcement was likely to irritate major powers which have offered Iran economic and other incentives to persuade it to suspend enrichment activity that can have both civilian and military uses.

    Western officials said after a meeting with Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator in Geneva on July 19 it had two weeks to reply to an offer of a halt to new steps towards more U.N. sanctions if Iran froze the expansion of its nuclear program.

    Now, Ahamdinejad is saying that the P-5 plus one nations (United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany) are willing to accept Iranian uranium enrichment at this level. This is news to Flap unless the United States has changed its many years’ position of a halt to ALL uranium enrichment as a pre-condition to formal negotiations.

    The fact is that Iran will NEVER halt any uranium enrichment. The Iranian Mullahs covet a nuclear weapon to project hegemony over their Arab neighbors and blackmail Israel.

    Iran continues to enrich uranium and proceeds towards BREAKOUT CAPABILITY.

    Iran President Ahmadinejad to Visit New York for United Nations General Assembly


    Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is reportedly planning to visit New York again this Fall for the United Nations General Assembly meeting.

    Remember last year’s visit?

    Iran and the Mullahs who pull President Ahmadinejad’s strings just love to screw with the United States -especially at Presidential election time.

    Flap wonders if Barack Obama will agree to meet with Ahamdinejad – you know without preconditions?

    Iran Nuclear Watch: Iran Will NOT Stop Uranium Enrichment


    Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (R) waves to journalists as Iranian chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili stands in the background before an official meeting in Tehran July 1, 2008. Iran said on Saturday its nuclear stance had not changed and it was ready to hold talks with world major powers over its disputed nuclear program based on international regulations.

    The trial balloon of a few days ago – “freeze-for-freeze” – turns out to be bull – just like all of the others. Iran will not halt uranium enrichment.

    Iran’s nuclear program remains unchanged, a government spokesman Saturday, indicating that Tehran has no plans to meet a key Western demand that it stop enriching uranium.

    Gholam Hossein Elham’s insistence that Iran would not change the central part of its controversial program came a day after Iran sent the European Union its response to an international proposal to curb its program in exchange for economic incentives. The content of the response has not been made public.

    “Iran’s stand regarding its peaceful nuclear program has not changed,” Mr. Elham told reporters.

    Iran’s ambassador to Belgium presented the response to the package to EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana in Brussels on Friday, and Iran’s top nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, spoke with Mr. Solana by phone, Iranian state media has reported.

    European officials said they were studying the Iranian response and were consulting among themselves and with America, Russia, and China on what to do next.

    What is the surprise?

    The Iranian Mullahs covet nuclear weapons and will do anything to obtain them, including the big stall game while they enrich sufficient uranium for BREAKOUT CAPABILITY.

    Negotiations with Iran have gone nowhere. The United States and Israel need to shit or get off the pot.

    Iran Nuclear Watch: Ahmadinejad – The West Could NOT Break Us


    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Ahmadinejad speaking at the opening ceremony of the 29th Annual Session of the OPEC Ministerial Council in the city of Isfahan, south of Tehran, June 17, 2008, has said the West has failed to break Iran’s will in the nuclear standoff, days after world powers presented Tehran with a new offer aimed at ending the crisis

    The President of Iran is correct.

    President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday the West has failed to break Iran’s will in the nuclear standoff, days after world powers presented Tehran with a new offer aimed at ending the crisis.

    “In the nuclear issue, the bullying powers have used up all their capabilities but could not break the will of the Iranian nation,” Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying by state television.

    World powers — Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States — on Saturday offered Tehran a new package of technological and economic incentives in exchange for suspending uranium enrichment activities.

    Ahmadinejad’s comments were his first statement on the nuclear crisis since the offer was presented but it was not clear if they represented a reaction to the proposal.

    The Iranian government spokesman has already said Tehran will reject any offer demanding it suspends uranium enrichment.

    The United States and the European Union have been twiddling their thumbs with proposals of meaningless economic and political sanctions while Iran has been developing the ability to manufacture nuclear missile delivery systems and nuclear warheads.

    This must be scaring Israel to action or Iran will soon nuclear blackmail them into leaving Israel.

    Iran Nuclear Watch: Ahmadinejad Taunts Bush

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, clinches his fist, as he delivers a speech in a public gathering at the city of Shahr-E- Kord, some 330 miles (550 kilometers) south of the capital Tehran, Iran, Wednesday, June 11, 2008. Ahmadinejad said Wednesday that U.S. President George W. Bush’s era ‘has come to an end’ and he has failed in his goals to attack Iran and stop its nuclear program

    Iran President Ahmadinejad is correct in taunting President Bush. President Bush has done NOTHING but talk about Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon.

    “It’s Bush’s dream to harm Iran’s nation,” Ahmadinejad
    said today during a televised speech in the western Iranian city
    of Shahre Kord. “You thought you would be able to do something
    but your term came to an end and you will not be capable of
    harming even 1 centimeter of Iran’s sacred land.”

    Iran won’t stop its nuclear work, Ahmadinejad stressed.

    “You think that you can force the Iranian nation to back
    down from its legitimate rights through threats and pressures,”
    Iran’s state-run Islamic Republic News Agency cited Ahmadinejad
    as saying today in another speech, in the western town of Sefid
    Dasht. He added, “The Iranian nation will not retreat even 1

    The European Union who is threatened directly by Iran continues to insist on negotiations and China and Russia, Iran’s oil business partners, block the United Nations Security Council.

    So, there will be either a military intervention by Israel and the United States or Iran will achieve its goal of becoming a nuclear weapon possessing country.

    Flap cannot believe that President George W. Bush “punted” on this issue.

    But, he did.

    Ahmadinejad – Israel Will Soon Disappear


    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speaks during a press conference in Tehran. Ahmadinejad predicted that Muslims would uproot “satanic powers” and repeated his controversial belief that Israel will soon disappear.

    Said while the uranium enrichment centrifuges spin at Natanz:

    “I must announce that the Zionist regime (Israel), with a 60-year record of genocide, plunder, invasion and betrayal is about to die and will soon be erased from the geographical scene,” he said.

    “Today, the time for the fall of the satanic power of the United States has come and the countdown to the annihilation of the emperor of power and wealth has started.”

    How many statements does Ahmadinejad have to make about Israel’s annihilation before the world community understands the intent of Iran’s nuclear program?

    Barack Obama Watch: Meeting Ahmadinejad

    Barack Obama at the You Tube Democrat debate, July 23, 2007

    In the furor yesterday over Barack Obama’s LATEST Pastor problem with Father Michael Pfleger, the changing of Obama’s position on meeting with Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad without preconditions may have been missed.

    Last July this is what Barack Obama said:

    “Would you be willing to meet separately, without precondition, during the first year of your administration, in Washington or anywhere else, with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea in order to bridge the gap that divides our countries?” asked Stephen Sixta, a video producer who submitted the question for the CNN/YouTube Democratic debate.

    Mr. Obama, the first candidate to respond, answered, “I would.”

    But, Obama has taken heat for his comment. Hillary Clinton has criticized him, as have Jewish groups, the GOP and Senator John McCain.

    And, like the Flag Pin controversy, the Iraq War trip, Obama finesses his way out of bad policy.

    In the debate, Obama said “I would.”

    Today he says:

    “he would reserve the right to choose which leaders he would meet, should he choose to meet with them at all.”

    Senator, what has changed?
