Obama’s Nuclear Deal a Victory for Iran

From Breitbart (3:00 pm Wed):

Radioactive_keeper_drums

A beaming Iranian foreign minister emerged from the meeting rooms in Switzerland to announce that all of the theocracy’s major demands had been met. According to the new provisions released on the nuclear deal, Iran will get to both keep active its centrifuges and receive sanctions relief.

The State Department has released a “fact sheet” highlighting the various points of the deal. Sanctions against will be lifted immediately, and probably forever. Iran gets to keep a huge number of its nuclear centrifuges spinning, including a thousand of them at the previously hidden and illegal fortified bunker of Fordo, which is supposed to become a “peaceful” nuclear, physics, technology, and research center. There are sunset provisions on everything Iran has tentatively agreed to, although in his Rose Garden press conference announcing the deal, Obama claimed they would somehow be “permanently” blocked from various forms of weapons development.

Despite the perpetual complaints from U.N. inspectors that Iran has cheated them, Obama assured us that “if Iran cheats, the world will know.” Since Iran most predictably balks when serious inspection demands are made, this agreement “framework” could yet collapse, a possibility the President briefly mentioned in his remarks. In fact, he made a point of saying “the work is not yet done” on the deal, so we’re back to the announcement-of-a-declaration-of-a-framework-to-have-more-meetings stuff characteristic of these negotiations.

Most of the President’s remarks consisted of declarations about how “historic” the deal was, straw-man false choices about how the only alternative to his deal is an immediate regional war, excuses about how his supposedly awesome bargain with Iran was the best anyone could have managed under impossible circumstances, and loads of rhetoric about how dedicated to Middle Eastern stability he is. There were loads of promises about how inspections would be so rigorous that Iran could not possibly break the deal, even though they have successfully bamboozled, or outright defied, every previous attempt to monitor their nuclear program. The Iranians knew all along that what Obama most desired was an opportunity to give speeches like this. The messy details can be dealt with later.

The President made rhetorical gestures toward the security of American allies such as Israel and Saudi Arabia under the terms of this agreement. The former nation is now headed by the most vindicated man in the world – Benjamin Netanyau predicted the outcome of Obama’s wheeling and dealing with Iran almost to the word. The latter will now scramble to purchase nuclear weapons of its own, as will everyone else who doesn’t want to find out when Iran’s nuclear umbrella will really snap open, or be caught unarmed beneath it.

One curious detail that stood out from the President’s remarks was his assertion that, without this deal, Iran might have been only 2 to 3 months away from having a nuclear weapon.  That is the kind of timetable Obama and his spokespeople have been deriding for years as uninformed scaremongering, but now it turns out that was a reasonable estimate after all?

Obama tried comparing his nuclear deal to Reagan’s arms negotiations with the Soviet Union, which spotlights the most dangerous thing about Obama’s Iran policy: he really thinks the mullahs represent the sort of sane, relatively responsible (if rather aggressive) government, interested in stability and material prosperity, that liberals love to recall their dear departed Soviets as.  Note also that liberals most certainly did not think Reagan’s dealings with the Soviets were a model of American statecraft to be emulated at the time.

This is all theater, while the reality of Iranian nuclear weapons moves forward… brought to you by the man who swore in his 2012 re-election campaign that he’d never let it happen, under any circumstances.

Update, 3:30 PM: Just a few minutes after President Obama’s Rose Garden speech listing one sunset expiration date after another for Iran’s nominal concessions, Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters there were no sunset provisions in the deal.  It sounds like either the Administration is confused about what they just agreed to, or Kerry and his shop have decided the “sunset” concept is politically troublesome, so they’re trying to redefine what the term means.

Meanwhile, Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei is pretty darn happy about the outcome of these talks…

The Israelis, however, aren’t near as happy as one official tweeted “Iran nuclear deal ‘historic’ mistake.”

~~~~~~~~~

On Tuesday an Iranian general brazenly declared ‘Israel’s destruction is non-negotiable’. So was O’s reaction to walk away from the talks? No, he worked harder to seal the deal. Except there’s no deal – we get nothing and Iran got everything.

O preens and crows about as if he’s just accomplished something good for the world, when instead he just opened the gates to hell.

    Iran’s head negotiator has just stated that the Americans are delusional about what was agreed to.

    Figures… not ONE THING coming from King Putt or his minions has been truthful these last 6-1/4 miserable years. Not one.

    • Kathy says:

      Our president and SoS are delusional, but there are some of us who know what just happened. The rest of the world will figure it out when they see that bright orange mushroom cloud in the sky.

    I might suggest the Izzies consider a night-time visit to the enrichment storage facility with a few hundred kilos of semtex or C-4 or ??.

  3. Conclusion

    Radioactive waste disposal and the related dumping of materials has caused serious contamination in Siberia. As permafrost is by its nature, non-permeable, contaminated materials are not dispersed by the surface water but accumulate in the active layer. Radioactive pollutants also accumulate in the sediments of rivers and the sea floor. Peaceful underground nuclear explosions were conducted as geophysical soundings and in the diamond industry. Harmful pollutants such as plutonium accumulate on the ground surface and tend to mix with ground water. A special task force program to evaluate the level of contamination is urgently needed. An international organization is expected to take action for the protection of further dispersion of contamination.

    A typical cumulus cloud (the most common cloud) is about 1 cubic kilometer in volume and 2 km above ground. Air density is estimated to be at about 1.007 kg/m3. The clouds (water droplets) are less dense and come close to 1.003 kg/m3 (which is also why they float). There are estimated to be 1,000,000 cubic meters of droplets in an average cumulus cloud. The weight can be calculated using this equation (density by volume by a factor):

    1.003 kg/m3x 1,000 x 1 km3 = 1,003,000,000 kg

    Which is over a billion kilograms of droplets or close to 2.2 billion pounds.

    Assuming a blue whale is close to 160 (160,000 kg) tones in weight, a cumulus cloud weighs as much as 6,268.75 blue whales!

    What is the deal? Is Barack Obama hiding his unconstitutional deal with Iran and their Nuclear Bomb Program. Or is his administration justifying the controversy on global warming a distraction to the inevitable proof of Iran having the capability to wipe Israel off the map. What is the deal Barack Obama? Or does time, Gods Time, allow us Americans and Christian Americans to see the outcome of the holocaust of Nuclear Bomb Testing, testing above ground or below ground. For “Us” to see Gods Planet fight for its Natural Right For Survival, the Polar Reversal, or for Man to speed up the Earths fabricated self-destruction. Meanwhile, Nasa/International Space Station is busy taking digital pictures of the earth, 24/7. Will Nasa/International Space Station survival a Nuclear War. No! As a result, the failing layers of the atmosphere and gaseous clouds will create a vacuum, bringing anything in orbit, crashing to Earth. Tons and Tons of Space Equipment, Space Junk, and Clouds crashing to Earth can cause a global destruction. The Deal Is, “God Knows Everything.” Do We Humans Deserve The Right For Us To Witness Our Evil Doings?”

    What are the effects on climate?
    Massive absorption of warming sunlight by a global smoke layer would cause Ice Age temperatures on Earth. NASA computer models predict 40% of the smoke would stay in the stratosphere for 10 years. There the smoke would also destroy much of the protective ozone layer and allow dangerous amounts of UV light to reach the Earth’s surface.

    Half of 1% of the explosive power of the deployed nuclear arsenal can create nuclear darkness. 100 Hiroshima-size weapons exploded in the large cities of India and Pakistan would put 5 million tons of smoke in the stratosphere and drop average global temperatures to Little Ice Age levels. Shortened growing seasons could cause up to 1 billion people to starve to death.

    A large nuclear war could put 150 million tons of smoke in the stratosphere and make global temperatures colder than they were 18,000 years ago during the coldest part of the last Ice Age. Killing frosts would occur every day for 1-3 years in the large agricultural regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Average global precipitation would be reduced by 45%. Earth’s ozone layer would be decimated. Growing seasons would be eliminated.

    A large nuclear war would utterly devastate the environment and cause most people to starve to death. Already stressed ecosystems would collapse. Deadly climate change, radioactive fallout and toxic pollution would cause a mass extinction event, eliminating humans and most complex forms of life on Earth.

    The U.S. and Russia keep hundreds of missiles armed with thousands of nuclear warheads on high-alert, 24 hours a day.

    They can be launched with only a few minutes warning and reach their targets in less than 30 minutes. We must end this madness.

    Furthermore, continuous underground Nuclear Bomb Testing has the unimaginable thermal pulse to crack the earth to the Electromagnetic Core, which is the Main Nuclear Reactor to keep the earths Apple Shape Magnetic Field active. The Magnetic Field Protects the earth from excessive gamma, ultraviolet, and small and unburned space debris, all which can increase as the Magnetic Field decreases. Such cracks into the ocean water table or the ocean itself could flow into the Earths Nuclear Reactor Core and smother the process.

    Underground nuclear testing refers to test detonations of nuclear weapons that are performed underground. When the device being tested is buried at sufficient depth, the explosion may be contained, with no release of radioactive materials to the atmosphere.

    The extreme heat and pressure of an underground nuclear explosion causes changes in the surrounding rock. The rock closest to the location of the test is vaporised, forming a cavity. Farther away, there are zones of crushed, cracked, and irreversibly strained rock. Following the explosion, the rock above the cavity may collapse, forming a rubble chimney. If this chimney reaches the surface, a bowl-shaped subsidence crater may form.

    The first underground test took place in 1951; further tests provided information that eventually led to the signing of the Limited Test Ban Treaty in 1963, which banned all nuclear tests except for those performed underground. From then until the signing of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty in 1996, most nuclear tests were performed underground,

      That is some heavy duty information you just posted Jack, and I appreciate you doing that. It’s something that very few people know and most certainly, O has no idea about the actual effects of nuclear weapons.

      Whether or not O made the deal with Iran to back up his global warming thinking, I have no idea, but anything’s possible with him. He and others have said it’s our worst danger – maybe that’s what he meant.

  5. Barack Obama is performing his biggest lie to our God, today. For our Grand Children to be faced with the ongoing and active results of past underground nuclear testing. Yes, underground nuclear testing hides the evidence to us ignorant humans. But these tests have set the ongoing and unstoppable motion of decay of earth rock and thus creating craters which will eventually cause premature earth gas and lava releases. Volcanos are a natural process of earth spewing its hot lava from the nuclear reactor, the core. The core is the boss of our magnetic field. Without the core, the magnetic field will cease. As well as the base of life. The Atom Family and the Nucleus of each atom. That means us, too. We are atoms and over 70% H20. This is what Obama doesn’t have a clue or is wrongfully ignorant, as Commander of Chief, knowing about the cost of Nuclear Testing and Bomb Making. His policy about humans omitting fossil fuels is a typical fascist lie. The truth is, past underground Nuclear Bomb Testing has already set the release of radiation and fossil fuel into the run off water from the melting ice caps. Us humans will have a very difficult time in drinking polluted run off water let alone ocean water, which is undrinkable.

  7. Iran has successfully tested an underground nuclear explosion, today. Part of Obamas deal. To continue to do the past testing as usual. To be generous to those who are all taking part in underground nuclear bomb testing. To be non-discriminatory to the United Nations. The United Nations who are destroying earth and causing further earth damage as listed above, in underground nuclear bomb testing research.
