Are You A Betting Person?

If you are, I have a bet for you. What if the wager were this? Do you think that Iran will get nuclear weapons? And just to make it interesting, ler’s put  a timetable on it. Let’s make it in say, three years. What do you think?

Based on events of the past few days, combined with previous known activities and stated aims and rhetoric, I am afraid that the  answer to our hypothetical bet is yes, I may be off on the time frame, but the again, who knows. I don’t think the Administration does.We have just learned or Iran has revealed, take your pick, that Iran has a 2nd  uranium enrichment plant and there are also 2 previously unknown sites in and around Tehran being used to build nuclear warheads. This latter info comes from the National Council of Resistance of Iran. The IAEA ( International Atomic energy Agency is looking into theses claims. The NCRI is also the who forced Iran to reveal this previously unknown 2nd uranium enrichment site.The gropu also revealed the existence of site #1 in Natanz.

What does Mr Obama have to say? he spoke today at the G20 summit in Pittsburgh. “All nations have the right to peaceful nuclear energy(betcha hadn’t heard of that right before).Those nations with nuclear weapons must move towards disarmament. those nations without nuclear weapons must forsake them. Let me see if I get this. The nuclear nations club is composed of the United States, Russia, China, Pakistan, India, and Israel  as  far as we know. Anybody in there planning on disarming? Well us , Russia, we shall see. That is  about it.

Now factor in those statements with the earlier Iranian info and mix in this next. Just a couple of years ago, then Senator Obama agreed with the National Intelligence Estimate that said Iran had shelved its nuclear weapons program and had only peaceful intentions and Bush was lying yet  again. Fast forward and what do we have? A member of the “axis of evil”  who Obama once called too small to be a problem; now being a real problem.

Allow me to close with this. Why would a nation with all the energy resources  of Iran ever have planned all this effort just for nuclear energy? Maybe I am greatly oversimplyfing but it just  seems that there were red flags all along the way.

So now we say, you have got to stop this or, or what?

  1. My bet would be that Israel will bomb bomb bomb and America under the leadership of Barack Hussien Obama will stay the course of telling the World we’re sorry for being so mean! Obama and the rest of the World leaders will let Israel go it alone and then the same World leaders will take the credit that they stopped Iran from getting the nukes! Am I wrong?

  3. gtp, I think that is the best result we could get. let Israel do our dirty work once again, after Obama criticizes them in his UN speech.
