If Iran’s Program is Frozen, Why Is Their Nuclear Stockpile Growing?

The Obama administration is puzzled. They’re convinced that Iran is committed to a process of negotiations over its nuclear program that will forestall its efforts to build a bomb and begin a new period of détente between the Islamist regime and the West.

Moreover, they’ve been preaching endlessly that the interim agreement signed in November 2013 “froze” the Iranian program in place.

How then to explain the fact that, as the International Atomic Energy Agency has reported, the size of their stockpile of nuclear fuel has increased by more than 20 percent over the last 18 months while they were talking with the West and supposedly freezing their nuclear work in place?…

A two-paragraph story from Reuters reports that the U.S. expects Iran to reduce its stockpile by June 30.

    You don’t think that maybe…possibly…they were lying to us, do you?

    But what do I know, I’m just a butterfly.

    • mobuyus

      I thought you were just a goat ?

      • The Butterfly

        I may have looked like one on the outside, but on the inside I’ve always been a beautiful butterfly. You can read all about it in the next issue of Vanity Fair.

        • Frau Katze

          I’m looking forward to that.

  • JoKeR

    But the Iranian program has been stopped by Obama, just like the negotiations Bill Clinton had with North Korea stopped them from getting nuclear weapons!

    • Clausewitz

      More Obama logic like his recent statement that he’s the closest thing to a Jew that has ever inhabited the Oval office.

      • Ottawa Eyes

        Isn’t the anti-Christ supposed to declare that he is the second-coming of Jesus?

  • eMan14

    I have not been following this as closely as perhaps I should. But can someone explain to me that if Iran is denying it is trying to build a nuclear weapon, why are they in negotiations to prevent that very thing from taking place?

  • It was never frozen. They had to enrich nuclear material at a slower pace.

    This is so elementary but I do understand why many would overlook it.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Because they wanted to.
      If they looked at the situation with a critical eye, the gig would instantly be up.

        There is no proof of a nuclear program. People can say it all they want to but that doesn’t make it true. Just like those WMDs which never existed. Just look Hussein’s ties to Al Qaeda. When will people stop trusting pundits and politicians and understand that people like them for the most part lie. When is lying a requirement when wanting a politician?! You could say even in Levant’s newest video he is lying blatantly. It has also been proven that those translations were purposely taken out of context. Remember that the West launched that coup in 1953 due to Mosadegh winning that election. Iranians have no history of war on other nations. It seems to me that the US wants an invasion of Iran, even if Obama will not be the president. It also tells me that the main reason for it has to do with Iran overthrowing the Shah which was a puppet.

        • mobuyus

          Fag you had better take up bird watching they are watching you. Keep talking we are listening to you. Are you really the best that islamic intelligence has to offer?

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Nothing meaningful to offer. Just vilification and insults. Come on you can do better than that. I am against the fake moral monotheistic religions. All I see is you just grasping at straws and assuming and making an ass of yourself. Just assumptions and nonsense is all that ever comes from you. Grow up kid!

          • Norman_In_New_York

            There is plenty of proof of a nuclear program. The UN Atomic Agency has documented it.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Iran understands what will happen if they attack. They are not going to do anything despite what you may think. If Iran hasn’t attacked Israel now, they never will. I believe it has more to do with previous statements by Ahmadinejad, and with Rouhani those fears should have gone away. I really don’t see how they can still be around. Iran, Russia and China are establishing BRICS. Simple as that!

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            You can be rest assured no war is going to happen, Norman, involving Israel and Iran.

          • Norman_In_New_York

            The “I” in BRICS stands for India, not Iran.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            Iran is still a member.

          • Norman_In_New_York

            Not with UN sanctions in force.

          • mobuyus

            You are a muslim just fuck off ok.

          • mobuyus

            Vilification and insults are all you need you islamic fuck. we are coming for you . Choose wisely you fucking coward. Oh and keep typing and talking.

          • Billy Bob Thornton

            What is my IP?

            You don’t know nothing about me!

          • mobuyus

            I don’t know and I don’t care what the fuck your ip address is, maybe you should start to worry, your islamic welfare cheque is about to end. Ask the moderator what your ip address is she knows, I don’t give a flying fuck. You can only hide for so long. I know lots about you asshole and soon we will meet .You don’t know Security Communications Establishment Canada? They send a bird your way you islamic fuck you are close to dying .Enjoy!

          • Please tone it down a bit. Personal insults and all that.

          • mobuyus

            Dear Black Mamba I am sorry. Can you provide his ip address for him. I really can’t help him. And that’s the truth. And I am sorry if I have put you in an unsafe space, that was never my intention. Billy bob thornton is an enemy of mine, and many in the west. I truly want to meet this individual and I believe I will God willing.

          • Does he want his IP address? If he does he can just type “what’s my IP” into his search engine.

          • mobuyus

            I do not know what he wants but I know it is not good for us.

          • Frau Katze

            Just ignore him. The world is full of people like him. You might as well argue with a fence post. I’ve learned this the hard way at a liberal forum.

            Arguing is fruitless. Just tune him out and he’ll leave his one comment and leave. Arguing gives is like fuel on a fire.

          • mobuyus

            I will take your advice to heart. I worked for Fence All at one time and was intimately involved with fence posts. I truly do not want to argue with this individual there ,are other things I would wish to do with it . But I would still wish for my strong hands on his throat. In loving manner.

          • mobuyus

            Fuck off I’ve got your number. And its coming goof”

        • Yes, about that:

          “The United Nations nuclear inspectors would be wrong to dare to want to look at nuclear sites in Iran and if they do so they will be arrested and molten lead would be poured down their throat, a senior commander of the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards says.”



          Pretty strong words for a non-existent program.

          Then there’s this:


      • The Iranians are so confident in their jig that they don’t even hide it.

  • Ron MacDonald

    All part of the Obama plan.

  • Remember though, ISIS is on the run, just like Al Qaeda.

    • mobuyus

      Just like the taliban. In the leftists wet dreams they are the taliban.
