From Conservative Tribune: Well, that didn’t take long. Reports are now coming in that Iran is claiming it will start using its fastest centrifuges as soon as the nuclear agreement between it and the P5+1 group of nations is signed in July.
Iran’s semi-official FARS news agency quoted Iran’s foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif as saying, “Iran will begin using its latest generation IR-8 centrifuges as soon as its nuclear deal with the world powers goes into effect.”
If this is true, it spits directly in the face of anyone who thought this agreement would slow Iran’s progress toward obtaining a nuclear weapon.
Put simply, Iran says that its IR-8 centrifuges can enrich uranium 20 times faster than the IR-1 centrifuges it is currently using. This could give them a pathway to a nuclear weapon much sooner than we thought.
Mr. Zarif is claiming that this move is allowed under the agreement currently being worked upon. No one from the P5+1 seems to be disagreeing with him yet. In a continuation of Obama’s failed foreign policy, he is simply letting the world’s greatest sponsor of terrorism have its way.
JavadKarimiQoddousi, a member of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said, “The AEOI chief and the foreign minister presented hopeful remarks about nuclear technology R&D which, they said, have been agreed upon during the talks, and informed that gas will be injected into IR8 (centrifuges) with the start of the agreement.” (H/T Jihad Watch)
Did we really let this happen? We just gave Iran everything they want, and now we have no real way to stop them from getting a nuclear bomb.
Years from now, what will we tell our children after Iran has detonated a nuclear weapon over Israel? We’ll have to tell them how we stood by and did nothing as the axis of evil developed weapons capable of bringing the world to its knees.
There is still hope. We can still fix this. In 2016, we need to elect a leader who will renounce every word of this cursed agreement with Iran. It’s not too late. There is still time to undo the damage being wrought by this administration.
