And any nation — including Iran — should have the right to access peaceful nuclear power if it complies with its responsibilities under the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty
“While we recognize that under the NPT [Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons] Iran has the right to a civilian nuclear program, Iran needs to restore confidence in its exclusively peaceful nature,” U.S. President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev announced in a joint statement ahead of their first sit-down.
Iran’s position on the “peaceful” use of nuclear power was expressed by Behzad Soltani, of the Atomic Energy of Iran (AEOI): “We do not intend to use the peaceful nuclear energy merely for generating electricity and energy, rather our next step would be expanding use of this technology,” Soltani reportedly said. “
As the president amuses himself at yet another big meeting with no legitimate purpose, Iran announced that it will go nuclear within one month. Iran, the world’s current greatest nuclear threat, is not in attendance at the farcical nuclear summit—they’re busy working on their nukes.
Why would Iran bother to appear at the summit anyway, it’s not as if they have the slightest intention of signing on to non-proliferation.
“Soltani added that construction work on a large-scale nuclear powerplant and a smaller research reactor in the Iranian city of Arak is nearing completion and is now at 70 percent.”
Whether or not the stated timetable is accurate, the rhetoric is unambiguous: “’Iran’s mighty nuclear independence [will] intermingle with economic growth, expansion of technology and political power in the international arena.’”
The Slaughter-the-Infidels regime is using Obama’s feckless behavior at the summit as an incentive to do some serious saber rattling. Rogue regimes are invigorated by the president’s manifest weakness and inflated ego.
Soltani: “’No country would ever think about attacking Iran”’ once the nuclear threshold has been crossed.
