The 10 Reasons We Know Iran Wants the Bomb – UPDATED by Bruno Tertrais

The 10 Reasons We Know Iran Wants the Bomb – UPDATED

By Bruno Tertrais

On November 8, the IAEA published a damning indictment of the Iranian nuclear program. For the first time, the Agency describes in an extraordinarily detailed fashion (in a 14-page annex to the main report) all the weaponization activities conducted by Tehran that it is aware of. The Agency specifies that this information comes from both its own inquiries and intelligence provided by more than ten Member States (which it then validates by its own means). It is particularly notable that some of these activities were conducted very recently: this means that, as many experts believed, they only had been temporarily “halted” (a word used by the 2007 US National Intelligence Estimate). In itself, the sum of all these weaponization activities is a tangible proof, if one was still needed, of the Iranian will to have a nuclear weapon capability. But this conclusion is also grounded in numerous other elements. Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags

Eye on Iran: Nations Diverge on Pressing Iran

Top Stories

WSJ: „The U.S. and its European allies struggled to present a unified international stance against Iran a day after the United Nations‘ nuclear agency said it had uncovered extensive evidence that Tehran has been developing the technologies needed to produce nuclear weapons. Russia on Wednesday formally vowed to block any move at the U.N. Security Council to impose new sanctions against Iran, saying it wasn’t convinced by the new intelligence presented by the International Atomic Energy Agency on Tuesday. China called for the IAEA to be ‚objective‘ in its work. France and the U.S., meanwhile, appeared divided on how aggressively to target Tehran as the IAEA’s Board of Governors prepares to meet next week to discuss Iran and its nuclear program. Any splits between the U.S. and Europeans could undermine efforts to isolate Iran. The French government called for ‚unprecedented sanctions‘ against Iran and a new Security Council resolution condemning its nuclear advances. But the Obama administration has declined to commit to any specific policy, even while acknowledging the seriousness of the new IAEA report. ‚I’ll just say that we’re looking at a range of options. I don’t want to say one is off the table…one is still on the table,‘ said State Department spokesman Mark Toner. ‚I think that limits our ability to look at all possibilities and come up with additional pressure as appropriate.'“  Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags

Iran Special Analysis (Part 2): The IAEA’s Nuclear Report — Not All Sources Are Equal

The Iranian State agency IRNA may seem an unusual place to continue an analysis of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s report on the Iranian nuclear programme. After all, IRNA is known more as a megaphone for the regime or a faction within it than as a site critiquing latest news. And some passages in its pre-emptive strike against the IAEA document, either from translation or from wilful evasion, bordered on the desperate: Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags

Opinions: Victims of Iranian ‘justice’

By Roya Boroumand


There is no room in revolutionary courts for defense lawyers because they keep quoting laws to play for time.”

— Ayatollah Sadegh Khalkhali, the first religious judge appointed by Ayatollah Khomeini to head the Islamic Revolutionary Tribunal, May 13, 1979

If a lawyer comes to believe that his client is guilty, he must not contribute to the prolongation of the trial; he must understand that he would be held accountable in the Hereafter . . . The Bar Association [should] identify and take action against lawyers who create mischief and divert cases from their proper course.Lies den Rest dieses Beitrags
