Truth never works in the oil rich region, the Middle East. There are so much to be neglected by western media which seems to be intendedly trying to make a fuss to push a new war.
They pretty much ignore so many facts and try to mislead the public opinion away from the war crimes that western governments are committing in the world. They hide them behind real-time stories, this time Iran’s nuclear program.
I’ve read some critical articles on Jeffrey Goldberg’s long & misleading report and I noticed none of them really crossed what might be the truth and the real fears of Israel.
Iran’s nuclear program may not be the real thing that worries Israel. By now and with the help of NPT they are aware of what Iran has done.
They know that Iran does not have the technology of nuclear weapons yet. Otherwise the Tehran’s reactor which is used for the medical purpose was not being out of work for some months that the fuel would be getting ended. If a nuclear Iran is really going to worry Israel, it has to be a concern of longterm not a worry of today or tomorrow.
So what is it that making Israel so anxious? Arent they hiding some other intentions behind the fuss for Iran’s nuclear program?
My thoughts tell me the real worry of Israel about iran is not the nuclear program even if they bark about it, but Israel’s real concern is Iran’s defence missile technology and they try to hide this concern behind the fuss for nuclear program.
After all no nation is allowed to have the technology to ‘defend’ itself against Zionist aggressors!
Why not the Nuclear program
The truth is that the fuel used in Tehran medical reactor is 20% enriched uranium, while the uranium in nuclear weapons usually is 85%! So Iran has yet long way to go - as the experts say at least some years – to be able to make a nuclear bomb.
Israel which has a history of assassinating and murder, has never claimed to assassinate or kidnap any ‘nuclear’ scientists of the Atomic Energy Agency, but Israel’s Mossad is accused of assassinating Dr Ardeshir Hosseinpour who was a genius and main part of the Shahab 3 missile project at Malik Ashtar university.
Even Shahram Amiri that was kidnapped by US and was recently freed, is not a nuclear scientist. He is an expert on radioactive isotopes for medical uses which doesn’t have anything at that level with Atomic energy facility but again he was a Malik Ashtar university of technology staff!!
Beside the fact that Iran has never invaded any country and the wars have been always to ‘defend, A single nuclear bomb or at general nuclear bomb does not help iran and is not useful. As once President Ahmadinehad pointed out, the era of nuclear weapons is already over.
North Korea has a nuclear bomb, and all know the sanctions over Iran which does not have any nuclear bomb is much worse than sanctions on a North Korea which has one/some!!
Israel which is not a member of NPT and is estimated to have 75-400 nuclear warhead, is completely aware about details of Iran’s nuclear program through NPT agents. NPT also several times emphasized that Iran’s nuclear program is peaceful and all the western countries including US are also completely aware of all the records!
On the other hand, There’s no organisation like NPT to control the Ballistic Defence missiles. It seems a free-zone as long as the missiles dont invade the space which would be difficult to be traced. They can never know how much progress Iran has in Ballistic missiles & can’t control it until Iran announces by own and tests them in public. Based on reports and the tests, Iran has the Ballistic missiles that are able to easily hit Israel. ( Sejjil missile and Shahab 3 that late dr Hosseinpour was main part of the project)
This is the wide range of Shahab 3 missile below:
As mentioned in Goldberg’s report, Israel fighter planes can’t just leave Israel behind, waiting to be beaten by Hizbullah there. The new reports also say of great progress in Hizbullah missiles; Whether Iran shared missiles with them or they made missiles by own; An Israel which was not able to handle Hamas’s home-made not very strong missiles, how is able to handle such powerful missiles with that wide range?
Iran not an easy target
Iran is a big country, 3 times bigger and more populous that Iraq. The country is so muti-ethnical but Iranians are so patriot. They have always united together against any foreign attack, despite the different political views and ethnicities & never let Iran to be invaded, occupied or colonised.
Iran also controls the most strategic area in the world, the strait of Hormuz. This strait is the only sea passage to the open ocean for large areas of the petroleum-exporting Persian Gulf that includes 40% of the world’s seaborne oil shipments.
Any attack on Iran may have a very deep effect on price of oil worldwide. Specially if Iran attempt to block the strait.
So all said above, Iran is no way an easy target for US which is injecting the money of hard-working tax payer Americans into wars. The wars proved to be based on lies and as Mark Weber points out very well, most benefits Israel and the Zionist allies than US and the American citizens:
Americans have already paid a high price for their nation’s commitment to Israel. We will pay an ever higher price – not just in dollars or international prestige, but in the lives of young men squandered for the interests of a foreign state – until the Jewish-Zionist hold on US political life is finally broken.
