Just days after Democratic lawmakers sealed the deal on Obama’s controversial nuclear agreement with Iran, the terrorist country found “unexpectedly high” uranium reserves. Looks like Obama’s analysts were wrong about Iran’s low supply of the radioactive element.
Reuters reported the suspicious discovery, quoting nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi’s words to state news agency IRNA: “I cannot announce [the level of] Iran’s uranium mine reserves,” he said. “The important thing is that before aerial prospecting for uranium ores we were not too optimistic, but the new discoveries have made us confident about our reserves.”
Salehi serves as head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization.
According to Salehi, total uranium exploration in Iran will be complete sometime during the next four years. He told the press on Saturday that the country would soon begin extracting raw uranium from the newly discovered source. It’s no secret that this radioactive element is a vital ingredient in nuclear weapons.
The international nuclear deal A.K.A. Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), brokered mainly by the Obama Administration, will allegedly slow Iran’s nuclear development during upcoming years in exchange for the withdrawal of economic sanctions that will dump billions of dollars into the country.
In reality, JCPOA does allow Iran to move forward with nuclear development programs – in which uranium will be useful. Despite accusations, Tehran has denied the pursuit of nuclear weapons development.
JCPOA was designed with the “knowledge” that Iran was almost out of uranium and that it would be forced to import the dangerous element from other countries. With this new discovery, the IAEA has no way of monitoring or estimating the amount of enriched uranium produced in Iran. And with sanctions lifted, Iran now has the money and the resources for a full-blown nuclear program.
“The official said the restrictions which the JCPOA entails are by no means the ones which would restrict Iran in its nuclear activities,” reads the original Reuters publication.
It’s statements like this that make me wonder how anyone would approve this sort of deal.
Somehow – despite protests and the best efforts of pro-Israel groups, conservative organizations, and the Republican-controlled Congress, Obama has secured a violent future and potentially World World III by boosting Iran’s economy and their ability to move forward with nuclear projects.
