Iran Eliminates ALL of Its Enriched Uranium

Via: Americans Against the Tea Party

1

On Sunday, BBC News reported that the U.N. Nuclear Agency had Iran had converted ALL of its enriched uranium into more harmless forms which can be used as fuel for a nuclear reactor, but NOT for bomb-making purposes.

The conversion was part of a deal struck between Iran and six world powers, the U.S., France, China, Russia, Germany and the UK.  Iran agreed to the conversion but maintained that it had never had any ambition to build a nuclear weapon in the first place. All of their enrichment programs, they said, were intended to produce material for power plants and medical purposes.

In return for Iran’s compliance with the agreement the U.S. has agreed to unblock $2.8 billion in frozen Iranian assets.

Another report, this one from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said that Iran is honoring all of its other commitments under the agreement, indicating that they are serious about wanting the diplomatic processes to continue and are willing to make compromises.

Iran’s new president promises: We will NEVER make nuclear weapons

1

Via: Raw Story

New Iranian President Hassan Rouhani promised that his country will never make nuclear weapons, as part of a larger move toward settling a long-standing rift with the United States over the country’s atomic program, NBC News reported on Wednesday.

“Under questioning, he made a categorical statement: He said Iran will ‘never develop nuclear weapons under any circumstances, and that he has ‘full authority’ to make a deal with the West” NBC correspondent Ann Curry told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell in a telephone interview. “He was, of course, clearly stating that he has the support of Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who is in charge of Iran’s nuclear program.”

Curry conducted the first U.S. interview with Rouhani, which NBC said would air Wednesday night. In a preview clip released that afternoon, Rouhani said he had exchanged correspondence with U.S. President Barack Obama shortly after Rouhani’s inauguration on Aug. 4.

“In that letter he congratulated my election and some issues of his interest raised in the letter,” Rouhani told Curry. “I responded to that letter. I thanked him, and expressed Islamic Republic of Iran’s viewpoint on the issues President Obama raised in his letter, and some other issues. From my point of view, the tone of the letter was positive and constructive.”

Being “positive and constructive” – This is why President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize!

“Quote of the Day”

Via: Raw Story

“I’m proud we are standing up for religious freedom,” Ayatollah Khomieni (see photo) said.

Freedom of religion doesn’t mean freedom FROM religion.”

====

CORRECTION:

It wasn’t the Ayatollah who said we have NO FREEDOM from RELIGION; it was the Governor of Texas, Rick Perry.

Hey, it was an honest mistake.

Tom Cotton (R-ARK) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

1

Via: Huffington Post

Rep. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) (SEE PHOTO) on Wednesday introduced legislation that would “automatically” punish family members of people who violate U.S. sanctions against Iran, levying sentences of up to 20 years in prison.

The provision was introduced as an amendment to the Nuclear Iran Prevention Act of 2013, which lays out strong penalties for people who violate human rights, engage in censorship, or commit other abuses associated with the Iranian government.

Cotton also seeks to punish any family member of those people, “to include a spouse and any relative to the third degree,” including, “parents, children, aunts, uncles, nephews nieces, grandparents, great grandparents, grandkids, great grandkids,” Cotton said.

There would be no investigation,” Cotton said during Wednesday’s markup hearing before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. “If the prime malefactor of the family is identified as on the list for sanctions, then everyone within their family would automatically come within the sanctions regime as well. It’d be very hard to demonstrate and investigate to conclusive proof.”

The amendment immediately sparked objections from several members of the Foreign Affairs Committee, who noted that the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution GUARANTEES due process rights to anyone charged with a crime under American law.

Mike Rogers (R-MI) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Think Progress

Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said on CNN last night that neither he, nor the Iranians, would consider an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities an act of war (really?).

“But there’s also other things under that. I’m not saying that’s — that is the right answer. That is an option that I believe is short of war if it is very selective, very targeted, only to the nuclear program. (perhaps, we could call it, ‘shock and awe’)

And we do know, those — that the Iranians believe that there is a whole panoply of options — war and then these targeted strikes they don’t see as — wouldn’t see as an act of war.”

personal thoughts:

1. I think there is no questions, like we would, the Iranians will hit back, hard. They will not only hit Israel and our U.S. bases in the gulf, but they hit and destroy the refinery and shipping facilities in Saudi Arabia.

And you think you pay a lot at the pump now?

Hell, you ain’t seen nothin’!

2. War With Iran Will ‘Make Iraq And Afghanistan Look Like A Cakewalk’ – Former U.S. Senator from Nebraska, Bob Kerry.

3. And this MORON is actually the CHAIRMAN of the House Intelligence Committee?

Un-F’n- Believable!

Senator Paul (R-KY): ‘Bomb Everybody Tomorrow’ Is ‘Typical’ Republican Policy

Via: Think Progress

“We shouldn’t be everywhere all the time. We should have a more defensive foreign policy, a less aggressive foreign policy. I think that would go over much better in New England than the typical ‘we need to bomb everybody tomorrow’ policy you hear from some Republicans…there were many Republicans that said let’s stay [in Afghanistan] forever,

there are still some in the Senate who want to for 100 years in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

Senator Ayn Rand Paul (R-KY)

http://thinkprogress.org/security/2012/09/10/819641/rand-paul-gop-bomb-everybody/

***

personal thought:

If John McCain had been elected president:

1. We’d still have troops in Iraq, and no time table for leaving Afghanistan.

2. We would have bombed Iran; and have been involved, probably on the ground, in Syria.

3. North Korea, don’t even want to think about that.

4. Our deficit would be trillions of dollars higher, because we would of spent the money on weapon systems the ‘Joint Chiefs of Staff’ DO NOT WANT!

Note: the Romney ‘defense advisors’ are the SAME neocon ass-holes who got us INTO Iraq.

As Senator Paul suggests (R-KY), ‘Keep the U.S. STRONG and SAFE, Re-Elect Obama/Biden!’

‘Politizing’ now refers to Obama saying anything

Via: Wonkette

Blah blah Breitbart who cares, we know, but don’t you fancy this headline?

The poor sucker who had to update Breitbart.com on Memorial Day, and knew he had to slam Obama for speaking on Memorial Day somehow, settled on “Obama Politicizes Memorial Day” after Obama said that there shouldn’t be wars unless “absolutely necessary.”

This is what counts as politicization now: saying the same fucking thing every politician has said on Memorial Day every year since forever. PRO TIP: If you are considering making the argument “Politician politicizes X,” just go stick your head in the unflushed toilet for a few minutes instead. You’ll get more out of it.

Here’s the Reuters write-up that led Breitbart.com to conclude that Obama had “politicized” Memorial Day, the existence of which is more of a “politicization” than anything:

“As commander in chief, I can tell you that sending our troops into harm’s way is the most wrenching decision that I have to make,” Obama said shortly after laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

“I can promise you I will never do so unless it is absolutely necessary and that when we do, we must give our troops a clear mission and the full support of a grateful nation.”

Boo!

Send them into harm’s way and don’t even care about it and do it when it’s not in any way necessary , and then don’t tell the troops what to do and give them zero support of a hateful nation, instead. In other words, Keep America Strong, because that’s the way it’s been done for centuries.

Profiles in Courage, the Jimmy Carter Edition

Via: Bloomberg – Gerald Rafshoon

I’m fairly sure that Jimmy Carter is the bravest man I know. I’m absolutely sure that he’s the bravest politician.

When it comes to courage, Carter’s polar opposite is Mitt Romney.

Scour Romney’s record for a single example of real political courage – a single, solitary instance, however small, where Romney placed principle or substance above his own short-term political interests. Let me know if you find one.

“Even Jimmy Carter would have given that order,” Romney sneered recently, belittling President Barack Obama’s role in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

Would have given?

No, Mr. Romney. Gave. Jimmy Carter gave that order — 32 years ago.

Everything you can say in praise of Obama’s courage in ordering Operation Neptune Spear, as the Navy Seal raid on bin Laden was code-named — and Obama deserves plenty of praise –goes DOUBLE for CARTER’s courage in ordering Operation Eagle Claw, the Delta Force mission to rescue the American hostages inIran on April 24, 1980.

Both were highly secret, elite commando operations deep inside less-than-friendly territory at a time of tension between the U.S. and Islamist extremism. Both were painstakingly designed and rehearsed to achieve a difficult and long-sought goal in a surgical manner, with as little “collateral damage” to innocent civilians as possible. In both cases, the commander-in-chief gave the green light despite dissent within his inner circle of advisers. In neither case was there any guarantee of success — or even a better-than-even chance.

~

Operation Eagle Claw

The Iran mission was actually riskier. Snatching 52 imprisoned Americans alive from a guarded building in the middle of a hostile nation’s teeming capital city is a taller order than killing one man in a residential suburban compound in a country controlled by a nominally allied, if untrustworthy, government.

But the biggest difference, of course, is that while Neptune Spear was a resounding success, Eagle Claw was a failure. When a sandstorm disabled three of the eight helicopters, the Delta Force commander asked for permission to abort, evacuate and try again another day. Carter agreed. Then, as the evacuation proceeded, a helicopter and a transport plane collided, leaving eight servicemen dead in the wreckage, blowing our cover and preventing a second attempt.

personal thought:

If, and I know it’s a very big IF; the mission would have worked and the 52 American hostages could have come home, I think Carter would have won a second term.

Wars in Iraq, Afghanistan AND Iran

 ‘Open Secrets’ chart the donations for March

~

Via: Think Progress

The Army Times reported in February that ANTI-WAR GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul (R-TX) was at that time, “by far,” getting the most in campaign contributions from members of the United States military. According to a review of Federal Election Commission data, Paul received nearly $250,000 in donations from servicemembers, President Obama, $130,000 and GOP presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney just $23,000.

But now that Paul’s campaign is all but over and presumably, Romney will be the Republican nominee, the military’s donation trend is beginning to shift: away from Paul and toward Obama:
