Iran's nuclear shot in the arm

The Obama Administration has actively pursued a Progressive crusade to shred the Constitution, disarm the general public, destroy the middle class though excessive taxation and deliberate over regulation, enroll and encourage millions of American to become life long government dependents, shutter NASA, destroy the world's finest healthcare delivery system, and muzzle political dissent though the misuse of federal agencies.

He has also funneled hundred of millions of tax dollars into the hands of most virulent and despicable religious zealots on the planet, demoralized and ruthlessly undercut the war fighting ability of  the US armed forces; all the while deliberately spewing forth outrageous lies and Kafkaesque fabrications about every damn political issue, every damn minute, of every damn day.

And now the really bad news.

From the Daily Mail online:

Zimbabwe has signed a secret deal to supply Uranium to Iran for its controversial nuclear programme, according to a senior Government source in Harare.

Negotiations between the two countries, which would see thousands of tonnes of the raw uranium shipped to Tehran for enrichment, have allegedly been going on for two years, the Times reports.

He [Zimbabwe's Deputy Mining Minister Gift Chimanikire], said a Chinese company had been carrying out tests at a site in the far north of Zimbabwe. He told the Times: 'I have seen a [memorandum of understanding] to export uranium to the Iranians.'

Zimbabwe is believed to have uranium reserves of around 45,000 tonnes. However much of it is mixed in with other minerals meaning it would take years to extract and at considerable expense.

The Chinese are also believed to have approached Zimbabwe offering finance and construction projects in return for mining rights.

Although Iran has its own uranium deposits they are not as pure as those found in other parts of the world.

Experts believe the Islamic state has already stockpiled 182kg of enriched uranium, but would require around 250kg to build a nuclear bomb.

"Thousands of tonnes" of the raw uranium ore can be turned into a dozen nuclear bombs a single year. That is, if the Iranians were to significantly increase the number of high-speed centrifuges to keep up with increased supply of raw ore.

From the International Business Times of July 31, 2013:

Iran's outgoing president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said 5,000 new centrifuges are ready to start operating at the country's nuclear facilities. These are in addition to the 12,000 centrifuges already in operation. 

"12,000 centrifuge machines are now running in our nuclear sites and 5,000 new centrifuges are ready to start operation," the hardline president told the country's IRIB1 TV.

The development has come despite Yukiya Amano, director of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), expressing concern over Iran's controversial nuclear programme.

The IAEA said in June that Tehran was violating international regulations by increasing the number of centrifuges.

What a surprise that is......not!

Gosh, even the New York Times has finally spilled the beans about the new Iranian centrifuges; buried in the 13th paragraph of an article titled, "Obama Has Plans to Cut U.S. Nuclear Arsenal, if Russia Reciprocates."

Iran has installed 17,000 centrifuges and now has enough low- and medium-enriched fuel to produce a half dozen weapons, with further enrichment.

Low-grade uranium ore had always been the Achilles heel of the Iranian nuclear program. Up till now a significant amount of additional time and effort was required for the isotope separation of the weapons grade U-235 from the non-fissionable  U-238. Now that the Iranians will start with a higher quality ore, with a helping hand from  the Chinese, their program will have a much quicker path in separating the U-235.

Think about that when you purchase Chinese made products from Wal-Mart and Apple.

What two counties would Iran most likely attack with their fledgling nuclear arsenal? Yep, Israel and the United States.

Would Israel use nuclear weapons in response to an Iranian nuclear attack? Sure, of course.

So. would President Barack H. Obama order a nuclear attack against Iran in response to a couple of Iranian nukes going off in New York and Miami?  Hmmmm,  probably not. Wouldn't Obama  most likely tell us that America should first conclusively prove that the nukes were really of Iranian origin and we shouldn't rush to any premature conclusions? 

Bottom line: Obama has that Noble Peace prize to wave around for the next 30 years and nuking a Muslim country,  regardless of the provocation, would  not be good for his presidential legacy or his elevation as Secretary-General of the United Nations.
