In yet another effort to spit in the eye of our Israeli allies, President Obama and his administration have approved a huge shipment of natural uranium from Russia to Iran, a country that has vowed to wipe Isreal off the face of the map.
While uranium can be enriched for energy purposes, it can also be used in the development of nuclear bombs.
In short, not only has Obama been so hell bent on establishing his nuclear pact with Iran that he had previously provided them with $1.3 billion to help fund their program, but he’s now providing them with the actual materials to make weapons as well.
Via the Associated Press:
Iran is to receive a huge shipment of natural uranium from Russia to compensate it for exporting tons of reactor coolant, diplomats say, in a move approved by the outgoing U.S. administration and other governments seeking to keep Tehran committed to a landmark nuclear pact.
Two senior diplomats said the transfer recently agreed by the U.S. and five other world powers that negotiated the nuclear deal with Iran foresees delivery of 116 metric tons (nearly 130 tons) of natural uranium. U.N. Security Council approval is needed but a formality, considering five of those powers are permanent Security Council members, they said.
Uranium can be enriched to levels ranging from reactor fuel or medical and research purposes to the core of an atomic bomb. Iran says it has no interest in such weapons and its activities are being closely monitored under the nuclear pact to make sure they remain peaceful.
Got that guys? Iran says they have no interest in making nuclear weapons and they’re absolutely pinkie swearing to it.
Keep in mind, Iran, the country that our President believes should be able to start a nuclear program, is the same country currently antagonizing our Navy in the Strait of Hormuz. Something they’ve done time and time again.
Providing monetary and material resources to Iran capable of producing nuclear weapons is pure insanity. We’re only one step away from the President handing them a ‘Nuclear Bombs For Dummies’ instruction manual.
