(San Francisco) Many people are asking if Iran can build a nuclear weapon. The answer is No, they cannot. Iran does not have the tools or material to do so. Some 40 countries would probably like to build a reactor, though,  according to the IAEA, the International Atomic Energy Agency. A reactor is the first step to a nuclear weapon.

But, the President of the US, politicians in Israel and other important people say Iran “might” be able to build a weapon in a few years. So what? I might like to jump over the moon too; but, it ain’t gonna happen.

Same thing with Iran building a nuclear weapon. Iran does not have the tools to do so. Iran cannot get them or even make the tools required. Iran cannot even buy the tools. Try calling up Japan Steel and ordering a few tons of Marange Speciality Steel and see what happens.

Talk is cheap; building nuclear weapons is not. Building nuke weapons is a very expensive, dirty, nasty business. Lots of people talk glibly about building nuclear weapons and have not a clue what they are talking about; only a few people can actually do it. Freelancers, independents and “terrorists” don’t have a chance of doing so. No, building nuclear weapons is an exclusively state run business.

Here, in a brief Flash video by nuclear reactor expert ‘Ace’ Hoffman, is how nuclear weapons changed the face of America.

In fact, building nuclear weapons is the kind of big industrial enterprise that can be detected from satellites in outer space. The US has plenty of spy satellites; at least one is “parked” over Iran right now. And, making “small” nuclear weapons is even harder than building 10,000 lb, (4,545 kilogram) Atomic Bombs!

That being said, two world wide “nuclear capable corporations” as Ann Garrison, my colleague and a noted writer at the San Francisco Bay View calls them, are Bechtel and Halliburton. There actually is a Mr Bechtel, he lives in San Francisco, just down a bit from his old friend “Nuclear Nancy” Pelosi, Speaker of the US House of Representatives. Hmm, San Francisco is quite a small town, actually.

Anyway, Bechtel Corp runs the privatized US nuclear weapons program and Halliburton runs the equally privatized British nuclear weapons program at the quaintly named AWE, or Atomic Weapons Establishment at Aldermaston, England. There is certainly a lot of money to be made from nuclear weapons and the hand maiden to nuke weapons – nuke power plants.

True, the only thing nuke power plants actually produce is 1400 plus very radioactive isotopes and they all leak, all the time. One of those is Plutonium 239 or Pu 239 for short. It is entirely made by humans and did not really exist before its tryout detonation at Alamogordo, New Mexico and its Prime Time Debut detonation at Nagasaki, Japan in 1945. Pu 239 makes a thermonuclear bomb, the big ones with no theoretical upper limit on size. It is the man made metal bomb makers crave.

Lung Tissue and Radiation

Sometime in September, Iran’s big nuclear reactor starts up and begins making Pu 239 by the ton. Russia, Iran’s patron, promises the Nuclear States and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to bring all the old 50 Ton, plus new isotope growth, highly radioactive reactor cores back to Mother Russia’s Control rather than let Iran keep the bomb making Plutonium 239 even for one second. We all shall see.

That is the bare fact situation as of right now in August 2010. What happens next all depends on who has control of the Pu 239 from Iran’s big reactor. US and Israeli spy satellites and ground assets will be trying to “catch” Iran stealing the old reactor core with its load of tons of Pu 239 to use for a thermonuclear weapon.

Everything else is just CIA front group fluff, fake media distraction, professional hair-do news readers on TV, and NYTIMES misinformation.

What do You think is going to happen next?

Keys to the Kingdom

Now, most importantly, stay Focused. Don’t go off half cocked and start wildly firing. In two to 3 years we have a lethal, highly radioactive 50 Ton Plus old reactor core, that will kill exposed humans in 10 seconds, coming out of the cooker in Iran.

The hot reactor core will also catch fire if exposed to air and cremate your quite dead, radioactive body if you let it. What’cha gonna do? Explain your steps. Don’t hold back.

    Personally, I believe Ayatullah Ali Khamenei should climb down from the high moral ground and order the Iranian nuclear agency to go ahead and make atleast a few nuclear bombs – as military deterrant and put a ‘duct-tape’ on the mouths of the warmongering Zionists.

    What is stopping Islamists in Tehran for going after acquiring nuclear arsenal? Is it Imam Khoeini’s ‘fatwa’ against acquiring the weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), which is the line-of-thinking of the Spiritual Leader, Ayatullah Khamenei – or is it that Iran doesn’t have the resources to make a nuclear bomb?

    First – why Iran should acquire a nuclear bomb as deterrant? Because both Ben Obama and Ben Netanyahu have threatened the Islamic Republic that their option to nuke Iran is on the table……

    I concur with the rehmat post, about Iran actually should, post haste, put every ounce of effort to develop not just ‘one bomb’ but a slew of bombs, and work hard on delivery vehicles that can reach New York and Washington, D.C.

    The reason for this, is simple: the only nation who’s used these horrible weapons on anyone is the Untitled Snakes. Also, the Untitled Snakes allowed a shipload of uranium to get hijacked to Haifa (CIA) so that Israel could fuel Dimona and develop their own weapons of mass destruction.

    If for some reason Iran were dumb enough only to pursue peaceful nuclear energy for power production, then I have to say that they deserve to have corrupt filth in Washington and Tel Aviv dictate to them all day long about what they will or will not do with their I.A.E.A. sanctioned and wholly legitimate, nuclear power program.

    And, I go one step further. Rather than let Israel be the sole possessor of nuclear weapons in the region, the rest of the world should make sure that Egypt and Jordan also have their own nuclear arsenals as well…replete with long range, MIRV’ed I.C.B.M.’s with TOPOL-M kinds of anti-intercept technology that precludes a boost phase interception.

    Once more of the world has nukes, the hegemony by the U.S.S.A. and Israel will start to taper off. And the reason why I state this, is that both Russia and China, as well as France and Britain, have had nuclear weapons for a long long long time, and have not swaggered around and threatened a single country with their arsenals, so this ‘debunks’ the sorry and oh so immature b.s. about “if they have nuclear weapons, they’ll threaten their neighbors with them” lies and bad reasoning.

    So, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, get your guys working 24/7 to build not only a lot of bombs, but get your delivery vehicles and re-entry body technology from Vlad Putin, and then we’ll see who threatens you with their U.S. sanctioned sword then.

    I’ll bet a whole lot of ‘mellow’ will ensue in the Middle East once Israel is not the only punk on the block with a switchblade knife.

    Brazilian President Mr. Inacio Lula De Silva has given a deep hearted plea to the West for the right of Iran to Nuclear Technology. So has Venezula’s President.

    Iran is being wrongfully denied the right of nuclear technology on the perceived perception that Iran is developing or has intention of developing nuclear war heads. It is just like when a son is born in an Afghan refugee camp he is branded as a terrorist because he was born to an Afghan mother.

    The West is not issuing visa to any Muslim students for further studies in the West as they perceive the student to be a danger to the West. There are so many other such notions that the West has forethought of the Muslims and the States which are not bowing to their (West) pressure that the general Muslim population is now getting fed up with the ideas of West, and those rulers and heads of states who are toeing the line of the West are finding it difficult to persuade their electoral if there are really any such electoral, as most of the friends of West in the East are dictators, rulers and dishonest politicians.

    It would be wise for West to let Iran do what is Iran’s right other wise there would be another Bin Laden like mind erupting in the East to teach the West a lesson, which it has been learning in the shape of the state of affairs it is facing in shape of the recession at hand, or unmindful bigotory of self distruction and dillusion to end one self economically and morally.

    Actually, the U.S.S.A. knows that Palestinians, Iranians, Muslims in-general pose no threat to them, they’re just in bad need of a scapegoat, and today, Iran and Muslims are ‘IT’ and they have been ‘IT’ since the Carlyle Group Grope and the Low Key Murderers based in Maryland, decided that they could sure hock more weapons worldwide if they could only foment more wars on a BIG SCALE.

    To do that, they needed a scapegoat. Amerikan’s are dumber than a sack of doorknobs, in general, and will attack anything their feckless leaders tell them to hate and attack, so today it’s ‘MUSLIMS’ and dark people from the Middle East (who won’t get visas just to villify them and further make them look more of a threat than they ever could be) but next week, it might be someone like those ‘damned home grown TERR’ists who HATE THEIR GOVERNMENT, ahem, and might want to pull another Timothy McVeigh (patsy)(dept of JUST US/FBI conspiracy to blow up a building and blame it on home grown terrorists).

    It’s all about control, and power, and GREED, and the only way the GREED gets self actualization, is if they vilify and monster-ize a group of ‘insert race here’ individuals and then foment wars based on the irrational senseless and inane PARANOIA they instill in the Amerikan dumbed down morons who are too stupid to pour urine out of a boot with instructions on the bottom of the boot.

    This has nothing to do with actual ‘fear’ of Muslims, but it has everything to do with taking advantage of moderately docile and normally non-threatening people who pose no threat, simply because they are different enough to make most jingoistic crap filled minds in Amerika go bonkers in shit fits of suspicion.

    It’s been true all thru Amerika’s greedy little Rothschilds controlled history. First it was the HUNS, then it was the JAPS, and then it was the damned MUSLIMS. Shit, at this rate, Amerika would run out of minorities to hate and mass murder if not for their pending implosion due to over-reaching and self-destructing due to the mindless military spending that goes along with WAR PROFITEERING and MASS KILLINGS. So, maybe in a ‘new’ and less dumbed down version of Amerika (sans Amerikans, maybe) the world won’t have to worry about too much Rothschilds of London bullshit because the major formenting agent in the U.S.S.A. will have extincted itself finally.

    Let’s face it, Rothschilds did this to Britain, but the British too were too stupid and dense to figure out who sold them down the EMPIRE HOLE.

    The ICC convicted Sudanese President has announced that his country is planning to build its first power-generating nuclear plant by 2020. A team from IAEA is due in Khartoum to discuss the matter.

    The Iranophobia Zionist mafia is buzz with an offer by Iran’s Spiritual Leader, Ayatullah Ali Khamenei, to the visiting Sudanese President in March 2010 – to pass Iranian nuclear expertise to Sudan if needed.
