Just sit back for a moment and close your eyes. Clear your mind. Now, I want you to think of the scariest thing you can imagine. Make it a clear mental picture in your mind’s eye.
What I’m about to share with you is way worse than that.
A new report is coming out that says there’s a strong possibility that Iran, you know the country that takes to the streets on a regular basis to gleefully shout “death to America,” might be super close to having a nuclear weapon in their possession.
How is this possible? Well, for starters, the disastrous nuke deal the Obama administration orchestrated opens the door for this as it limits inspections that can be done in the country. But it also seems they have been sharing information with North Korea.
via The Daily Caller:
Iran may be secretly pursuing a nuclear weapons program on military sites away from international inspectors, a new report by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) obtained by Fox News revealed Tuesday.
The 2015 nuclear deal negotiated by the President Barack Obama administration limits inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) officials to declared civilian sites at a moments notice. The IAEA can request access to military sites, but Iran is allowed nearly a month to prepare sites before their inspection. Critics note this may be enough time to conceal any nefarious activity.
President Donald Trump will likely de-certify the Iranian nuclear deal to Congress in the coming week triggering a 60 day review of its effect on U.S. national security. Critics of the deal in Congress could raise inspections of military sites as a requirement for the regime to stave off future sanctions.
“An important feature of the Iranian regime’s nuclear program is that several sites and centers where nuclear-related activities are conducted are situated in sprawling military complexes that also house scores of tunnels and silos. This not only makes IAEA access to these locations more difficult, but also makes it possible to relocate these centers and projects to other locations within the complex,” Alireza Jafarzadeh, an NCRI official, told Fox News, adding “As such, if it becomes necessary to relocate a project or center, it can easily be moved to a different silo or tunnel within the parameters of the military site. This makes pinpointing the exact location of nuclear research and activities more challenging, and reduces the chance of exposure.”
I think it goes without saying, but this is pretty horrible news. If Iran gets their hands on a nuclear weapon, either they are going to attempt to use it on us or on Israel, neither of which is a good thing. For obvious reasons.
You know, a lot of folks on the left talked about the economic mess that Obama inherited from former President Bush and chastised him for it endlessly. Trump has inherited both an economic mess and a foreign policy mess, and despite the negligent leadership of the former commander-in-chief opening the way for this junk, everyone is blaming the current president.
Let’s hope Trump and his advisers can find a solution to the situation brewing with North Korea and now Iran that doesn’t involve massive bloodshed.
