If a Yediot Ahronot special report on Iran's nuclear program is to be believed, the world is fiddling while Iran is building a bomb. In a weekend supplement article published in Hebrew on November 10, Israel's largest newspaper presented shocking evidence, including statelling photos. The photos and analysis show not accelerated uranium refinement, which we all know about, but rather, according to their claims, evidence of accelerated nuclear weapons development.

In plain English, Yedioth tells us that Iran is certainly making a bomb:

Take the site at Parchin, for example, where the Iranians are working on the warhead itself. According to information that has reached the West and been passed to the IAEA, a group of Iranian scientists, working under Department 105 of the local Ministry of Defense, are conducting experiments here on the timed detonation of conventional high-powered explosives, called high explosives, which form the "explosive lens." The aim is to generate the beginning of a chain reaction that will lead to a nuclear explosion. In order to create the desired effect, all the charges around the bomb's core must be exploded exactly at the same split second. Al-Baradai's people, who are supposed to have the authority to visit any site they want, tried to get to Parchin a number of times but on each occasion they were warded off by Iranian intelligence. When the inspection finally took place, it was made in stringent conditions, with the inspectors not being allowed to go where they wanted. Despite this, the inspectors found a high-speed camera designed to document timed explosions. Yet the Parchin issue receives only a muted mention from Al-Baradei, along with the comment that no suspicious findings were discovered except for a camera.

An analysis of the satellite photos published here reveals that extensive construction work has also been going on in Parchin recently. The photos reveal a series of underground tunnels and digging whose enormous scale is indicated by the amounts of earth dug up. The photos also show the area to which IAEA inspectors were not permitted access: special chambers that are used to test the assembly of a nuclear warhead's explosives. Identical chambers were photographed over the years close to facilities where the Soviet Union developed and manufactured its nuclear warheads.

According to Yediot then, Iran is building a bomb. The IAEA is studiously looking the other way. Not only the IAEA, but the United States government as well, and the French, and the British and everyone else are all ignoring the Iranian bomb program. For it is certain that if Yediot has these satellite photos, the United States and other countries have them as well. They must know the same things Yediot knows. Even if Yediot's information is bogus, it is quite amazing that nobody is asking questions about it, not even in Israel.

One is compelled to heed the message in the series of articles "Israel and the Middle East" by Ami Isseroff. If you don't "get it" then you must endeavour to do so. I am convinced that this series falls under the category of "truth".

After this appeared, the findings were more or less confirmed by US Secretary of Defense Gates. The problem is, I believe, that nobody can really figure out a way to stop Iran.

You're absolutely right, Lynne. I was describing what must be going on in a politician's mind as he/she ignores the potential danger from Iran.

Franklin Oliveira, Friday, December 8th


Don't kid yourself. Although the Nuclear Disarmament Movement in the UK wants the UK to dump its nukes, they accept Iran's right. And I'm sure there are elements of the left that either think that if Iran is not persuing anything other than a source of energy for "peaceful" purposes, and even if they are developing weapons they are "defensive" only against the Zionist Project or the US, and the west is deserving of whatever gets thrown our way because we're such evil, exploitive capitalists/imperialists/materialists.

Perhaps everyone is afraid to cry "Wolf!" after various people, especially leftists, grilled Bush for his handling of foreign policy towards Iraq.
