If Iran breaks its deal with the West tomorrow, the country would be only two to three weeks away from producing enough highly enriched uranium to assemble a nuclear weapon, according to Olli Heinonen, former deputy director of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
I was on-board with this thinking right from the outset. It only makes sense. Why would Iran, a country that has withstood decades of crippling sanctions, decide to just throw up their hands and surrender at the 11th hour? Because they have mastered uranium enrichment to the point where they can build a bomb in short order. It’s certainly conceivable that they already possess one but why take the risk of having the IAEA discover it and blow the scam when all they really need is a short-term build option?
In this way they can have their cake and eat it too. Get the sanctions reduced and be able to conduct foreign policy as well as state-sponsored terrorism with the knowledge that they are carrying a big stick. And their adversaries all know it. Obama the enabler will do his part. The media will try to sell it as if Obama has been hoodwinked and outsmarted but that’s a complete falsehood. Obama is complicit. Just ask his main and most trustworthy advisor, Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett.
This is why the Iranian leader can make this statement.
In remarks to the Iranian people, President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday the new Geneva agreement “means the big powers surrender to the great Iranian nation” and that it “means the global acceptance of Iran’s peaceful nuclear technology,” according to state news service Fars.
Normally, any comments such as these are just bluster, but this time it would seem Iran got the world to blink.
