New details on stolen Iranian nuclear documents obtained by Israeli spies earlier this year shed light on Tehran’s nuclear ambitions and show that Iran more than two decades ago had assembled the materials it needed to produce a nuclear bomb, according to multiple media reports.
The details expanded on those provided by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu provided in April, first in a private briefing with President Trump and later in an open presentation.
The information came from a trove of documents stolen from a storage facility in Tehran by agents for the Israeli by agency Mossad. Journalists for The New York Times, the Washington Post and others were invited by the Israeli government to view key documents obtained in the raid.
Zarif said the US’ “illegal withdrawal” from the deal and its “bullying methods to bring other governments in line” with that decision have discredited the rule of law in international arena.
Illegal withdrawal from a personal deal with Obama that Iran never signed?
Iranian officials are plotting with U.S. allies across the globe to develop a series a measures meant to counter new sanctions by the Trump administration following its abandonment of the landmark nuclear deal, setting up a global economic showdown between America and its allies over their future business dealings with the Islamic Republic.
Don’t bet against Trump. He may not always win but the odds are in his favor.
At first glance, the new American “roadmap” on Iran, unveiled by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week, looks like a recipe for regime change in Tehran. That view is echoed in initial European Union comments on the 12-point desiderata that Pompeo presented at the Heritage Foundation in Washington.
Both British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and the EU’s foreign policy spokeswoman Federica Mogherini claim that by going beyond the controversial “nuclear deal” with Iran (known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action — JCPOA), Pompeo may be following a hidden agenda against the Iranian regime.
Now that President Trump has nixed the Iran nuclear deal, the Iranian mullahs who run the country are feeling freer to express themselves more clearly and reveal their murderous ambitions regarding the U.S., Israel, and the Gulf States, while acknowledging their nuclear goals aren’t peaceful at all.
Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari has slammed the US for being an unreliable partner during his speech at a ceremony in Tehran, reports Fars News Agency. He noted that the fact that the US had abandoned an internationally endorsed agreement only proves this point. He also forecasted that Iran will have to rely on itself.
- You mean the “internationally endorsed agreement” Iran refused to sign?
- Nice uniform. Take pride knowing its shadow will be burned into your skin.
The International Atomic Energy Agency didn’t give a reason for the sudden resignation of Tero Varjoranta, stating Saturday that it doesn’t comment on confidential personnel matters.
Aside from imperiling a landmark international accord and endangering regional and global security, the US pull-out from the 2015 agreement with Iran will have crushing economic consequences for Europe. French, German and UK firms stand to lose billions of euros in investments and trade if they are forced to comply with the sanctions that will be re-imposed and expanded now that the US is no longer a signatory of the nuclear deal.
- Iran was NEVER a signatory of the ‘nuclear deal’.
- Trump has probably prevented Paris from being nuked.
- To hell with 95% of Europe.
The ad, titled “Mr. President, you are right about Iran” in bold letters, is signed by Harper, former Australian prime minister John Howard, Nobel Peace Prize winner and former Northern Ireland first minister David William Trimble, and other former politicians and writers, including John Baird, former Canadian foreign affairs minister.
In November of 2015, it was reported that, “The Obama administration has disclosed to Congress that this summer’s controversial nuclear arms agreement with Iran was never signed and is not legally binding, according to a new report this week. The State Department made the disclosures in a letter to Kansas congressman Mike Pompeo, a Republican, who had written the department to inquire why the agreement as submitted to Congress in July did not bear the signature of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.”
Prime minister says deal wasn’t perfect, but it prevented Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
Then how is it that they can have centrifuges spinning up almost immediately?
To express their anger at the US re-imposing sanctions against Iran, legislators torched a paper likeness of the US stars and stripes, chanting “Death to America.” While these three words aren’t uncommon inside the halls of Parliament, It’s rare to see Old Glory set ablaze within the Islamic Consultative Assembly.

The people of true United States of America were betrayed by Barack Obama, who not only gave Iran hundreds of millions of dollars in cold, hard cash but turned a blind eye to the crimes the Iranian Ayatollah Khamenei allowed to happen under his brutal regime’s watch.
Trump has made the decision to withdraw – and his announcement Tuesday afternoon starts a 90-day countdown to the restoration of sanctions. Once sanctions are back on, the US effectively would be out of the deal.
These Clarion videos from 2016 serve as a reminder as to why we in the West should fear a nuclear Iran.
My vote is to make Iran the world’s first nuclear carpet bombing recipient.
Leave not a trace of their civilization.
