Lies, lies and more lies from the Occupier-in-chief
“Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.” Psalm 121:4
Obama, Hillary and company have said the words “we cannot allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons” so often and with such determination that you would be absolutely convinced that they meant it and were working day and night to make it come to pass. But you would be completely wrong.
Obama and his team are doing nothing of the kind. In fact, they have done and continue to do the opposite. We would suggest to you, our readers, that perhaps the only reason why Iran has been able to make such spectacular progress towards having nuclear weapons is because Obama has been hyper-diligent about keeping Israel away from them. As Obama stalls, and Israel falls for his empty promises, Iran continues to build out it’s nuclear program as well as adding reinforcements against an air strike to take it out. Israel must face the fact that in order to protect themselves they must go it alone. And if they are not willing to do that, then they must prepare for the bombs to start falling. Its one or the other, but either way time is about up.
Finally, to Mr. Obama and to Mrs. Clinton, when you tell us with a straight face that you will “not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons”, we can reply with out the slightest bit of hesitation that we think you two and your administration are liars of the highest magnitude. May the Holy God of Israel reward you according to your works. And buddy, boy will He ever.
From DEBKA: The White House has fixed an appointment for President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to hold talks on Sept. 27, DEBKAfile’s Washington sources report. Netanyahu will spend ten days in the United States, during which he will address the UN General Assembly and launch Israel’s counter-attack on the virulently anti-Semitic themes of Iran’s official anti-Israel propaganda.
This timeline indicates that the prime minister is inclined to accommodate President Obama by delaying once again an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear program until after the US presidential election on Nov. 6. It stands to reason that Netanyahu would not fix a date with Obama to take place after an attack, or that the president would receive him. That being the case, there will not be much for them to talk about.
Obama stood up to the blasts from a number of influential American editorial writers and strategic analysts who urged him to offer Israel a solemn commitment for a pre-emptive American offensive against Iran from the Knesset podium, as a means of holding the Netanyahu government back from military action in the fall of 2012. Another suggestion was for the president to formally notify the US congress of his plans for military action if Iran persisted in speeding the development of ifs nuclear weapon capacity.
Obama rejected both suggestions – and Iran continued to accelerate its advance towards a nuclear weapon undisturbed.
Thursday, diplomats close to the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna, disclosed that Iran had installed another 1,000 uranium enrichment machines in its fortified underground facility at Fordo, and was expanding its production of 20-percent refined uranium. Experts not bound by the IAEA’s diplomatic constraints report that enrichment climbed to 30 percent some months ago and was now on the way to 60 percent. At least 3,000 centrifuges were now spinning at Fordo.
Israel recently passed information to Washington that Iran had already developed a radioactive (dirty) bomb.
Yet US official spokesmen keep on intoning that there is still room for diplomacy - even after all the parties admitted that the Six Power talks with Tehran broke down irretrievably weeks ago. And Friday, Aug. 24, seven hours of argument between the IAEA and Iranian representatives failed to dent Iran’s implacable opposition to any reduction in its nuclear drive or the slightest transparency.
One can only conclude that, even after Iran has the bomb, the mantra “there is still room for diplomacy” will continue to issue from official US mouths and the Washington-Tehran dialogue drag on, possibly through new channels, as it does with Pyongyang.
After they meet, the US President may reward the Israeli Prime Minister with a marginally more assertive statement about Iran as a sort of consolation prize for his restraint. But that will not change the fact that neither has raised a finger to halt a nuclear Iran, both preferring to bow to domestic political pressures and considerations. Their inaction has given two Middle East leaders a major boost for progress on their own nuclear initiatives.
Last March, Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan, who was recently appointed head of general intelligence, travelled secretly to Beijing and returned with Chinese President Hu Jintao’s consent to sell Saudi Arabia nuclear-capable CSS-5 Dong-Feng 21 MRBM ballistic missiles. He also agreed to send over Chinese nuclear engineers and technicians to help Saudi Arabia develop uranium enrichment and other nuclear production capacities.
This work is already in progress at the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology near Riyadh. In the last few weeks, Saudi Crown Prince Salman launched negotiations with Tehran on a non-aggression pact and other understandings covering bilateral cooperation behind America’s back on such issues as Syria.
It should be obvious from this development alone that the Middle East nuclear race, which both President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu admitted would be triggered by a nuclear Iran, unless preempted, is in full flight, a fact of which they have neglected to inform the general public in both countries.
But there is more
After less than three months in office, the Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi is following in Saudi footsteps: He will kick off his first foreign trips next week with a visit to Beijing, where he hopes to take a leaf out of the Saudi nuclear book. He then touches down in Tehran, ostensibly to attend the Non-Aligned Organization’s summit opening there on Aug. 26, but meanwhile to cultivate ties with Tehran for common action in the Middle East.
He has laid the ground for this by proposing the creation of a new “contact group” composed of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Turkey to disentangle the Syrian conflict – again behind America’s back. The optimistic presumption that the Egyptian president will have to dance to Washington’s tune to win economic assistance is proving unfounded. And Obama’s hands are tied. In June 2009, he bound his administration’s Middle East policy to mending American ties with the Muslim Brotherhood. Today, he can hardly starve the new Cairo administration of financial aid. source – DEBKA
So, the US Treasury Dept. has pronounced new financial sanctions against 11 companies associated with the Iranian defense ministry, Revolutionary Guard Corps and national shipping line as well as a university, all for actions they took to support the programs. Several of the firms are already subject to US and European sanctions.
Oh, it has helped contribute to their current economic status and the 40% of its population living below the poverty level. But persuading them to stop moving toward their nuclear dreams?
Not one bit…
Well, why not? Because these are not reasonable people. They don’t think as we do in the West. They don’t have the same values as we do in the West, and therefore should not be approached as such.
Yet, those in the West continue to use the useless regarding this critical problem. While the Mullahs are singing their own version of the Supremes’ hit concerning their goal:
Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough
Ain’t no sanction strong enough
To keep me from you
They are religious zealots. They are on a mission for their god. And nothing will deter them from that duty. The Islamic rulers of Iran, since the Iranian Revolution in ’79, have believed they were given a mission by their god to pave the way for the appearance of the last messiah, the Shiite’s 12th Imam Mahdi.
So how does this fit into their nuclear goals? Perfectly. Because war, chaos, and lawlessness must engulf the world in order to pave the way for Imam Mahdi’s return.
So, try in vain as they do: Sanctions, Schmanctions…Iran will continue till they hit the mother load.
Shalom through strength…
Visions of a nuclear free world dance through their heads.
“The treaty marks significant progress toward President Obama’s vision of a world without nuclear weapons.” -U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
The New START treaty took effect yesterday, just one day before the 100th anniversary of President Ronald Reagan’s birth. Reagan originally proposed the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty during his presidency to help calm heightened tensions between the U.S. and Russia during the Cold War, and it went into effect in 1994. Today, as countries like North Korea, Syria, and Iran are close, if not already able to get their hands on nukes, we are playing a whole different ballgame.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov exchanged ratification papers at the security conference in Munich on Saturday, officially putting terms of the treaty into motion. Hillary Clinton praised the effort saying that the treaty marks a “clear-eyed cooperation that is in everybody’s interests.”
MUNICH – A new U.S.-Russia nuclear arms control treaty went into effect Saturday, securing a key foreign policy goal of President Barack Obama and raising hopes among officials on both sides that it will provide the impetus for Moscow and Washington to negotiate further reductions.
“When it comes to the button that has worried us the most over the years — the one that would unleash nuclear destruction — today we take another step to ensure it will never be pushed,” Clinton told reporters after the treaty went into effect.
The 10-year New START treaty, which can be extended by another five years, is a cornerstone of Obama’s efforts to “reset” U.S. relations with Russia, and Clinton called it a “milestone in our strategic partnership.” source: Fox News
“I encourage the Russian Federation and the United States to continue their efforts to identify and carry forward the next steps, together with other nuclear-weapon states, in this historic endeavor of pursuing a nuclear weapon free world.” -U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
Hillary Clinton and Sergey Lavrov had discussed further arms control initiatives, including a pact to reduce stockpiles of tactical nuclear weapons, as well as one that would scrap long-range warheads stored in warehouses.
New Start cuts the number of deployed strategic warheads to 1,550, and the number of launchers and heavy bombers to 800. Within 45 days, the United States and Russia must share details on the number, location and technical characteristics of their arsenals. Sixty days from now, inspectors will be permitted to investigate the nuclear sites of the other country. source: New York Times
Does anyone honestly believe that we are heading towards a nuclear weapon free world? Anyone who understands End Times Bible Prophecy knows that there are plenty of weapons to be used in days ahead, and that the Bible describes events in the last days that certainly sound like nuclear war. What is the motive behind all of this showcasing by the U.S. and Russia? Even if both nations follow through on nuclear arms reduction, in the long run, what difference will it make? Both will still have significant nuclear arsenals and China, North Korea, Pakistan, and others will also still have their weapons. We have long passed the days that a nuclear free world is even a remote possibility.
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are quite serious about limiting America’s arsenal as quickly as possible, but Russia? Come on. Who would believe that they are going to seriously weaken themselves as they work to become the world’s superpower? The United States has got to be the only nation in the history of the world that has volunteered to weaken its status, and step down as the world’s superpower; exactly why many Americans wonder what team our leaders are really playing for.

Keeping a close eye on Pakistan
Remember that whole story about Pakistan becoming more radicalized by the day? Well then, this news may be a bit unsettling. Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal is growing at a a constant rate, doubling in just four years. It was not that long ago that trouble was brewing in Pakistan and the Taliban was gaining so much ground that it looked like they could very well take over the country. And how about the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, while campaigning for the the country’s 2008 elections? There are a number of concerns when it comes to the nation of Pakistan, and it is certainly a nation that needs to stay on the radar of possible trouble ahead.
Governmental stability. Pakistan currently offers a more stable government than the likes of Tunisia, but the people are experiencing pain from economic hardship just the same. The current government headed by Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani is showing signs that it may soon collapse, threatened to lose majority support in Parliament.
“There is no electricity, no gas, no jobs and they are fighting one another,” said Arif Fasiullah, 35, of the central city of Multan, in a recent interview. “They do not pass any legislation. They just do dirty politics.” The inflation rate in Pakistan is above 15%, according to government statistics, and the poorest are feeling the pain most. source: Guardian UK
Security of nuclear materials. There are serious concerns over lack of security when it comes to Pakistan’s nuclear material, despite American efforts to ensure that such material does not get into the hands of terrorists.
In one of the cables the former US ambassador to Pakistan Anne Patterson told the US officials: “Our major concern is not having an Islamic militant steal an entire weapon but rather the chance someone working in the government of Pakistan facilities could gradually smuggle enough material out to eventually make a weapon.” source: Times of India
A constantly growing nuclear arsenal. Pakistan has doubled its nuclear weapons stockpile over the past several years, increasing its arsenal to more than 100 deployed weapons, according to a published report. As a result, Pakistan has now edged ahead of India, its nuclear-armed rival, The Washington Post reported late Sunday, citing non-government analysts. India is estimated to have 60 to 100 weapons.
“They have been expanding pretty rapidly,” the report quoted David Albright, president of the Institute for Science and International Security, as saying. Based on recently accelerated production of plutonium and highly enriched uranium, Islamabad may now have an arsenal of up to 110 weapons, Albright said. source: Fox News
Pakistan as a top nuclear power. But the bigger worry is the production of nuclear materials. Based on the latest estimates of the International Panel on Fissile Materials, an outside group that estimates worldwide nuclear production, experts say Pakistan has now produced enough material for 40 to 100 additional weapons, including a new class of plutonium bombs. If those estimates are correct — and some government officials regard them as high — it would put Pakistan on a par with long-established nuclear powers.
“If not now, Pakistan will soon have the fifth largest nuclear arsenal in the world, surpassing the United Kingdom,” said Bruce Riedel, a former C.I.A. officer. “And judging by the new nuclear reactors that are coming online and the pace of production, Pakistan is on a course to be the fourth largest nuclear weapons state in the world, ahead of France,” he said. The United States, Russia and China are the three largest nuclear weapons states. source: NY Times
