This week’s news of the Iranian regime’s secret deals for advancing its plans to develop nuclear weapons comes as absolutely no surprise to well-informed watchers.
As noted in closing Latest: Iran’s Dual-strategy Against Halting the Nuclear Accord on 24th May, informed folk are extremely wary of all fanatical regime’s secret schemes and strategies, especially when it’s their consistently avowed aim to attack and destroy the state of Israel.
I cited how assiduously the homicidal thug Saddam Hussein had sought to build nuclear weapons and missiles, as revealed by the Christian Iraqi air vice-marshal and general Georges Sada in his book Saddam’s Secrets. It was only his unequivocal advice not to launch a surprise air strike upon Israel and Jordan on the grounds of meeting a superior air force, and possible nuclear retaliation in the event of launching missiles on Tel Aviv, that the maniac called off the proposed attack. Chapter 10 provides details how WMD were transported by the dictator’s instructions into Syria, thus confirming DebkaFile’s early intelligence.
Therefore, news last weekend of the German state of Baden-Wurtemburg’s intelligence agency publishing a report on the Iranian regime’s covert attempt in 2017 to secure advanced technology and scientific knowledge for its missile and nuclear programmes, was only to be expected! That is, Iran’s duplicity occurred whilst supposedly keeping to the nuclear deal, or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, agreed in 2015 with six world powers!!
The 345-page report seen by The Jerusalem Post was published before US President Trump’s decision of 8th May to pull out of the JCPOA. According to the intelligence report, “Iran has continued unchanged the pursuit of its ambitious program to acquire technology for its rocket and missile-delivery program.” Iran’s reported test of the mid-range Chorramschahr rocket in September was cited in the document.
“Iran’s regime seeks German software, sophisticated vacuum and control-engineering technologies, measurement devices and advanced electrical equipment for its rocket program, said the report. Germany is Iran’s most important European trade partner and has been the European country most willing to resist US policy to wind down trade with Iran. The US labels Iran’s regime a leading state-sponsor of terrorism.”
Clearly, the Iranian regime cannot be trusted and doubtless defends its actions under the Islamic principle of ‘Taqiyya‘, or acceptable lying, dissimulation and deception in certain circumstances in relations with non-Muslims; for example, in wanting to gain the upper-hand over one’s enemy, as was exemplified by the religion’s founder!
According to Debka, in his response today to Iran’s announcing the completion within a month of a facility at Natanz to produce advanced centrifuges for speeding up uranium enrichment, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warns, “We won’t allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. Iran is aware of our resolve.”
Lastly, DebkaFile reports: ‘As for the “new facility” at Natanz far from being completed in a month, as (Iran’s atomic energy czar) Salehi affirmed, we can report that it was built in fact four years ago – another example of Iran’s tactics of confusion. The finished building is shown in the photo at the head of this item. It is ready for activation at the push of a button.’ (Emphasis mine)
