More evidence Iran fleeced Obama and Kerry
But even if an agreement is finally reached two things are already known to be certain: 1) our government won't be able to read the agreement, and 2) Americans will not be included in the inspection teams.
To say that John Kerry and President Obama were fleeced is not an overstatement.
Why is inspection of the Parchin facility which only the IAEA may have access to, that agreement is still not a done deal, so crucial?
When you piece together all of the parts that have come out it looks awfully like Iran is not working on a nuclear bomb per se—they may already have it—because what is important to them today is learning how to detonate a miniaturized version to put on the tip of a missile. The trick to detonating a miniaturized version of a bomb is a sufficiently sophisticated shaped detonator, in the case of the bomb a spherically shaped inward directed detonation.
That is a really tough proposition, and that’s what the Parchin facility has been known to be doing. And Energy Secretary Moniz admits that to do research on that kind of explosive doesn’t require nuclear material, so there would be no telltale radiation with which to determine that they were violating the agreement.
So it is very likely that we will never know about the most important part of the Iranian research and development of a nuclear bomb. It is not part of the agreement that Kerry negotiated.
It is entirely possible, perhaps even probable, that the Iranians already have the capability of making a nuclear device, and are negotiating entirely to achieve an end to sanctions.
Assuming that this is probable, ending sanctions and permitting access to the frozen $150 billion which they are to receive would not only provide additional money for support of terrorism, it would accelerate the weaponization of devices capable of being carried on strategic missile systems, to be acquired in only a few years
The more that emerges from this "agreement" the more ridiculous it sounds. This entire exercise is a joke and its obvious what Obama and Kerry have been spending their time and energy on, i.e., trying to figure out how to sell this load of crap to the American public by their now trademark lies, deception, deflection, and resignation.
They proudly proclaim this "deal" as the best they could do when in fact they have really accomplished none of the goals they themselves set when this process started. Obama and Kerry are truly imbecilic and now expect everyone else to be as imbecilic as they are. Both of these people have proven they couldn't negotiate their way out of an open elevator door!
Winston Churchill once said something to the effect that history does not repeat itself, but it rhymes.
This Iran fiasco is so reminiscent of how the western world averted its eyes in the 1930s while Hitler rearmed Germany in violation of the Versailles Treaty, occupied militarily critical areas of Germany in which the German military was not allowed per the Versailles Treaty, "annexed" Austria (annexed meaning conquered without firing a shot) and, in effect, conquered parts of Czechoslovakia, amongst other things. The west also averted its eyes to what was taking place with the German Jewish population (and eventually that of other countries occupied by the Nazis). International inspectors visited Germany and saw only what the Germans allowed them to see and returned to the west to assure the world that all was well in Germany. The western world chose to see nothing, hear nothing and say nothing. The ultimate price was 60 million lives.
Sound familiar at all to you appeasers out there?
Obama apologists claim that the deal between Iran and the P5+1 says Iran will comply with the NPT and submit to IAEA inspection, which are subject to their agreements.
In the next breath, the same apologists say that those "confidential" IAEA agreements weren't negotiated by the P5+1 or the U.S., and that every country that has signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty has a confidential agreement with the IAEA.
First, Iran is not every country. Second, if it is the P5+1 agreement that mandates Iran's compliance with the IAEA side deals, then those side deals are necessarily part of the P5+1 agreement by way of incorporation.
Since we are talking about Iran, and not Never Never Land, all agreements and deals must be made public.
Or no deal.
It’s interesting that Rep. Pompeo and Sen. Cotton got wind of the side agreements and the huge hole in the agreement purely by accident while meeting with the Deputy Director of the IAEA in Vienna. I say this because earlier this week when Kerry and company, including General Dempsey testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee, to make the point made in this article, Senator Cotton showed two charts of how IEDs work, with emphasis on the directed explosive charge that allows penetrating a Humvee.
I bet any money that those directed explosive charges used in IEDs were developed at the Parchin facility that not even the IAEA has gotten an agreement to inspect, at least not yet.
When you piece all of the parts together it looks awfully obvious, at least to me, that right now Iran is not working on a nuclear bomb per se, and they may already have it, because what is important to them today is learning how to detonate a miniaturized version on the tip of a missile.
That is a really tough proposition and everything they were all saying tells me that the Iranians managed to protect their continued work on such a detonator, and keep us from learning about it. That’s what the Parchin facility that not even the IAEA will be able to inspect, has been known to be doing. And Energy Secretary Moniz did admit that to do research on that kind of explosive they don’t require nuclear material, so there would be no telltale radiation with which to determine that they were violating the agreement.
Now, the trick to detonating a miniaturized version of a bomb is a sufficiently sophisticated shaped detonator, in the case of the bomb a spherically shaped inward directed detonation. With this in mind it was interesting to watch Senator Tom Cotton ask questions of General Dempsey about the IEDs that Iran provided our enemies in Iraq to kill Americans very effectively. The charts presented by Senator Cotton showed the incredible effectiveness of Iranian designed and manufactured shaped explosives.
As the saying goes, all paths lead to Rome.
