Contrary to Widespread Claims, There Is NO EVIDENCE that Iran Is Building a Nuclear Weapon

Even Israel admits Iran is not even trying to build a nuclear weapon and while Israel has hundreds of nukes illegally Iran which has signed on to the non-proliferation treaty legally has the right to peaceful use of nuclear energy (I hate nuclear energy with a vengeance but we are talking international legal matters here)

 

Earlier this month, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said:

Are they [the Iranians] trying to develop a nuclear weapon? No. But we know that they’re trying to develop a nuclear capability. And that’s what concerns us.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper confirmed in a Senate hearing – following the release of the classified National Intelligence Estimate in 2011 – that he has a “high level of confidence” that Iran “has not made a decision as of this point to restart its nuclear weapons program.”

Mohamed ElBaradei – who spent more than a decade as the director of the IAEA – said that he had not “seen a shred of evidence” that Iran was pursuing the bomb.

Six former ambassadors to Iran within the last decade say that there is no evidence that Iran is building nuclear weapons, and that Iran is complying with international law.

The International Atomic Energy Agency states:

All nuclear material in the facility remains under the Agency’s containment and surveillance.

In other words, all nuclear fuel is accounted for and is being controlled and monitored by the international agency tasked with nuclear non-proliferation.

  1. Thank you… always keen to learn more. I think your point about aggression is important. Rhetoric aside, Iran has never attacked anyone, whereas the US track record is appalling having overthrown Iran’s democracy before funding a war with Iran through Iraq.

  2. It’s difficult to know what the truth is… there is so much misinformation and disinformation flying around. Even your claim that Israel has hundreds of nukes is conjecture… to my knowledge it’s never been declared how many warheads they actually have.

    Consider that there are now cleaner, and more economical, forms of nuclear technology (thorium) which cannot be weaponised (or are much harder to weaponise) and one wonders why any nation building nuclear power would still use uranium-based technology… unless you wanted to build a bomb. I believe this is the primary reason that the US never upgraded its nuclear facilities to thorium. The waste from their uranium reactors finds its way into their DU-based weapons.

    But the US, UK and Israel have also never let the truth get in the way of an agenda, so it’s entirely conceiveable that Iran isn’t building a bomb at all. It wasn’t that long ago that Iraq had WMDs ready to fire in 20 minutes or so, and that was subsequently proven to be a load of shit. Why should we believe the US now?

    • “It’s difficult to know what the truth is…” true but really if “they” say Iran IS making nuclear weapons ,its not the truth . Rest assured if they say Iran ISN’T making nuclear weapons ,it’s the truth.
      Israel has been driving the push for “regime change” through out the region ,it relies on destabilizing it’s neighbours .Look at Lebanon ,every time it seems to be getting its house in order Israel destroys it infrastructure by bombing power plants ,sewage works and government buildings.

      No one can present a thread of evidence that shows Iran being aggressive to anyone ! Yet Iran has been living under the terrorism of Israeli and American threat’s for many years.

      Fit this “truth” to your “It’s difficult to know ” position …
