UN officials recently announced that Tehran had amassed enough uranium to make a nuclear bomb. Traces of weapons grade material have been found in Iran. In recent years, Iranian theologians have decreed that atomic weapons are permissible to use under Islamic law, thereby removing another potential impediment.

UANI Wants to Know Where Obama Stands on Nuclear Iran

United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI), a non-partisan group that is committed to prevent Iran from fulfilling its ambition to become a regional super-power possessing nuclear weapons, has submitted a questionnaire and pledge to President Obama and each of the Republican candidates.

The 17 questions touch on subjects ranging from whether to classify Iran as a wartime enemy, to how to convince China and Russia to take part in punitive sanctions against the country.

Candidates are also asked to sign a pledge stating they would “take all necessary action through diplomacy, sanctions, covert action and if necessary the military” to stop Iran from

becoming a nuclear-armed state.

In a recent interview with The Daily Caller, UANI’s spokesman Nathan Carleton stated that “UANI is hoping to provide voters with a clear and unambiguous understanding of the candidates’ positions on the danger of a nuclear-armed Iran, and how they would act if elected president.”

UANI was founded in 2008 by the late Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, former CIA director James Woolsey, Middle East expert Dennis Ross and Ambassador Mike Wallace.

Restricted IAEA report on Iran leaked

The United Nations Nuclear Safety watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have released a new report  that reveals Iran has acquired the

knowledge and material to build its first nuclear weapon.

According to the report:

“Previous reports by the Director General have identified outstanding issues related to possible military dimensions to Iran’s nuclear programme and actions required of Iran to resolve these.Since 2002, the Agency has become increasingly concerned about the possible existence in Iran of undisclosed nuclear related activities involving military related organizations, including activities related to the development of a nuclear payload for a missile, about which the Agency has regularly received new information.”

“The Agency has serious concerns regarding possible military dimensions to Iran’s nuclear programme. After assessing carefully and critically the extensive information available to it, the Agency  finds the information to be, overall, credible. The information indicates that Iran has carried out activities relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device. The information also indicates that prior to the end of 2003, these activities took place under a structured programme, and that some activities may still be ongoing.”

The report is currently restricted to IAEA Member States only. However it has been leaked on the internet and can be read here.

Iran executes 17-Year Old Teenager

After China, Iran has the highest execution rate in the world. So far this year, more than 200 people have been executed in Iran, the majority of whom were charged with drug-related offences.

A group of independent United Nations human rights experts has condemned the execution of a teenager carried out yesterday by Iranian authorities, and called once again for an immediate halt to the country’s use of the death penalty.

Alireza Molla Soltani, 17, was publicly executed by hanging last week. He was reportedly sentenced to death last month for stabbing a popular athlete to death in mid-July, which he said was done in self-defence.

“We are outraged at the execution practice in Iran despite the international community’s and our repeated calls for a moratorium,” the experts – on human rights in Iran, on summary executions, on the independence of the judiciary, and on torture – said in a news release. “Any judgment imposing the death penalty upon juveniles below the age of 18, and their execution, are incompatible with Iran’s international obligations,” they stressed.

Sadly, it comes as no surprise to most people that Iran is executing minors. After all, this is the same despotic regime that has been systematically clamping down on its citizens human rights, their freedom of speech, denies the Holocaust, claims that 9/11 was a US-Israeli conspiracy and now potentially threatens the lives

of untold millions with nuclear weapons. When you weigh all that up, what’s the life of a 17-year-old kid worth, right, President Ahmadinejad?

U.N. increasingly concerned with Iran’s nuclear experiments

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the official body that examines Iran’s compliance with the Non-Proliferation Treaty and binding U.N. Security Council resolutions that address Iran’s nuclear program, released a nine-page report last week that expressed serious concerns that Iran has conducted experimental work to develop nuclear weapons, in particular on warheads to deliver nuclear payloads.

The report also highlighted that Iran has produced over 4,500 kilograms of low-enriched uranium, which, according to the Institute for Science and International Security, is “almost enough for four nuclear weapons after further enrichment to weapon grade.”

U.S. officials said the report reflects heightened international concern that Iran is developing the technologies to build nuclear weapons, a charge Tehran has repeatedly denied.

“The IAEA and broader international community have fundamental concerns with the nature and intent

of Iran’s nuclear program – and with the Qom facility in particular – that Iran has to put right after years of Iranian violations,” said National Security Council Spokesman Tommy Vietor. “Iran should do so without delay.”

The Deception Continues

Iran’s leaders once again employ tactics of deception by they are prepared to work toward resolving the regime’s nuclear dispute with the West. Iranian President Ahmadinejad said Iran would take steps to resolve the issue in return for steps taken by the international community.

Yet these comments come just days after the Iran nuclear developers announced that they are installing modern nuclear centrifuges. The installation of these enrichment machines further undermines Iran’s claims that the enrichment of uranium is for purely peaceful purposes.

Iranian Leaders Target U.S. Planes

An IRGC commander threatened Saturday that if the Iranian regime comes under attack over Iran’s nuclear program, U.S. aircraft carriers will be targeted.

The Islamic Republic has threatened violent responses to

strikes from the West in the past, but this declaration seemingly emphasizes the expanding range of Iranian missiles after more than a week of tests.

IRGC commander Amir Ali Hajizadeh said “Aircraft carriers … are moving targets. If the enemy threatens us, we will target them.”

The IRGC is Everywhere

In a speech Tuesday, IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps) commander Gen.Mohammad Ali Jafari divulged that his military branch is overseeing Iran’s domestic politics, and is heavily involved in the country’s economy and energy sector.

Jafari said U.S. claims that Iran could have a nuclear bomb in the next few years are nonsense. “Whenever they become disappointed or fail to achieve their goals, they resort to political accusations or assassination,” he said.

He also accused the U.S. of causing the uprisings in Syria.

Monkey Business

The Iranian regime has plans to send a monkey into space next month as part of its space program. This move is likely to spark fears from Western countries regarding the progress of the

Iran’s nuclear weapons program. The regime’s long-range ballistic technology used in the space program, could potentially be used to launch atomic warheads.

Iran’s leaders obviously deny this, claiming their nuclear program is purely peaceful.

Last year, the Islamic Republic announced that it has launched a rocket carrying a mouse, turtle and worms into space.

"Peaceful" Nuclear Weapons

Once again Ahmadienajd has insisted that Iran is not building a nuclear weapons arsenal. He added that should the Islamic Republic choose to

do so, “no one can do a damn thing.”

These statements come a mere two weeks after the chief of Iranian atomic organization announced plans to triple the regime’s uranium-enriching capabilities. Tehran claims the enriched uranium will be used to fuel future nuclear power plants, and not as material for atomic warheards.
