Iran Has Nuclear Weapons, Flashback 1992

Can we please end this RIDICULOUS argument that the US and Israel need to attack Iran to prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons? The “nuclear deals” with Iran have been nothing more than a major distraction and a scapegoat to keep the world on the edge of war. There are other reasons but my point here is that Iran has nuclear weapons and yet the world continues to pretend that it doesn’t and that we must go to war with Iran to prevent it. That is the mainstream narrative. Too bad the mainstream reported the truth back in 1992. Here is the L.A. Times article from 1992 describing how the deal went down.

Iran-Kazakhstan Nuclear Deal Reported

L.A. TIMES ARCHIVESMAY 1, 1992 12 AM PTFROM ASSOCIATED PRESSLONDON — 

Iran has obtained at least two nuclear warheads that had been reported missing from Kazakhstan, The European newspaper said Thursday.

The article, which cites a secret report from the Russian Foreign Intelligence Agency, again raises questions about whether the successors to the Soviet Union will be able to control their most dangerous weapons.

The European did not say how it had obtained the intelligence report. It quoted the report as saying several nuclear warheads vanished from the Semipalatinsk nuclear test site in Kazakhstan, which the republic’s president, Nursultan Nazarbayev, closed early this year.

The European said some intelligence sources believe Nazarbayev was behind the secret nuclear weapons transfer to Iran, trading warheads for oil or hard cash.

Iranian Industry Minister Mohammed Reza Nematzadeh said from Brussels on Thursday that while Iran wants to help rebuild the economy of the ex-Soviet republics, it is “nonsense” to claim it had bought nuclear warheads from them.

“Iran cannot compete with big nuclear powers,” he said. “Therefore, it is not interested in acquiring nuclear weapons.”

In Washington, U.S. intelligence officials have said they have no confirmation of the Russian report, which has surfaced repeatedly since last year.

Two of the nuclear weapons were smuggled across the border from Kazakhstan into Iran last year and now are under the control of Reza Amrollahi, chief of the Iranian Organization for Atomic Energy, according to The European.

It said the Russian report, recently sent to the CIA, disclosed that a third nuclear weapon that disappeared has not been traced but is believed to be in the Middle East.

The European said it is “almost certain” that the missing warheads are nuclear shells, which are relatively small and can be easily moved in an ordinary vehicle.

In Vienna, spokesman Hans Friedrich Meyer said the International Atomic Energy Agency had no knowledge of such a transaction. Iran signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and must report the acquisition of any nuclear material, he said.

The weekly Arabic magazine Al Watan Al Arabi reported in December that Iran took advantage of the chaos in the crumbling Soviet Union to buy components for three nuclear weapons for between $130 million to $150 million and hire more than 50 Soviet nuclear experts to assemble them.

The magazine said the weapons were purchased in an Islamic republic. This points to Kazakhstan, the only republic in mainly Islamic Central Asia with nuclear weapons.

The European quoted unidentified intelligence sources in Germany and France as saying they believe Nazarbayev was behind the secret nuclear weapons transfer to Iran, trading warheads for oil or hard cash.

According to this version, Nazarbayev covered his tracks by letting the information leak that the weapons had been taken by former scientists at the Atomic Research Institute of Kazakhstan who fled to Iran, the paper reported.

The United States and other governments have expressed concern about the spread of nuclear weapons in the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Ukraine President Leonid Kravchuk said Tuesday that the four nuclear powers among the former Soviet republics–Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Russia–will soon guarantee adherence to the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty.

The United States has been insisting that the republics comply with START, signed before the Soviet collapse. The treaty would drastically slash nuclear arsenals.

Now you know the truth about Iran and nuclear weapons. They probably have more, but this is what I could prove for now. God bless and stand firm!

The US Navy Pilots May not be Ready for War with China

US Navy Pilots Not Ready for War???

Today I found an article from National Interest and I found it quite alarming! The US Navy and it’s fighter pilots are in trouble both in terms of it’s aircraft and also pilot training. In fact the evaluators say it’s as bad or worse than things were in the 1960s heading into the Vietnam war. Back then they had aircraft that were not equipped for the type of up close and personal fighting that the Vietnamese had in mind and they paid a heavy price for that mistake. Now it appears they’re not equipped or trained to engage a high tech adversary like China or even Russia. Here is the story.

A panel of young aviators voiced a harsh warning to the audience at the U.S. Navy’s annual Tailhook aviation convention in Nevada in September 2019.

The Navy’s pilots aren’t ready to do battle with a high-tech foe such as China. The sailing branch’s planes must improve. Its training, too.

“Commentary from Tailhook 2019 suggests a new crisis is at hand,” James Holmes, a professor at the U.S. Naval War College in Rhode Island, wrote in Proceedings, the professional journal of the U.S. Naval Institute.

Holmes likened naval aviation’s current dilemma to a similar emergency that took place during the 1960s. “Back then the foe was North Vietnam, a doughty opponent that nonetheless posed little threat outside its borders,” Holmes wrote.

By the 1960s the Navy fielded carrier-based fighter jets whose design philosophy centered on guided missiles. It had become an article of faith that U.S. aircraft would prosecute missile engagements at “standoff” range, firing beyond enemy weapons range and beyond visual range. Adversaries would never get off a shot in reply. Missiles had rendered gunfights a thing of the past, or so it was thought in the early 1960s.

Yet Ho Chi Minh’s pilots were an ornery lot, refusing to follow the script American tacticians had written for them. Rather than remain at standoff distance to be blasted out of the sky, North Vietnamese airmen closed to dogfighting range and took their chances in gun duels.

Imagine that: an enemy might decline to do your bidding. U.S. aviators were ill prepared for North Vietnamese tactics. Indeed, the F-4 Phantom—the Navy’s premier fighter in the 1960s—was not even equipped with guns for close-range combat. ….

The present crisis has its roots in the period of relative geopolitical calm that followed the end of the Cold War, Holmes explained. Naval aviation’s training standards slipped. Its planes went years without meaningful upgrades.

China’s rise as an economic and military power, and Russia’s own military resurgence, ended the calm — and revealed that U.S. naval aviation was unprepared for major warfare.

“Recent years, declared one [panelist], have seen a ‘huge shift’ from the relatively placid interlude following the Cold War,” Holmes wrote. “Carrier aircraft no longer boast the same ‘kinematic advantage,’ or edge in speed and energy maneuverability, that once granted them near-invincibility in the Balkan wars, Afghanistan and Iraq. The rest of the story is here.

Sadly it’s not just the US Navy and their pilots that aren’t ready for a high tech war. There is ample evidence to show that the US Air Force is in similar bad shape.

In a report dated October 2019, the Air Force could only meet 62 of attack and 65 percent of strike requirements, but it could supply 92 percent of aerial tanker demand.

Not only that but after examining availability of 13 Air Force and Navy aircraft models, including the B-52, F-22, F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet and AV-8B Harrier, GAO found severe issues such as delayed depot maintenance, needed parts that were no longer manufactured, lack of mechanics, and aircraft flying beyond their service life.

Then of course there is the ongoing F35 debacle which some have described as a total failure as a program as it continues to run into critical flaws grounding half of the entire fleet at times.

In short the US Military is far from its former formidable self as now it is focused more on being politically correct than it is on fighting the next world war. Revelation 18 is about to unfold on America and it will be no more. Soon no one will be able to recognize America for it will have been DECIMATED. Nothing will be the same and there will be nothing but misery and death for those who are not sealed in the Holy Spirit.

REPENT NOW! Time is short.

The reports have been warning us for awhile now. This was from late 2018.

This one was from May of 2020.

Stay ready! Prayed up and prepped up at all times! The USA has been set up to fall and fall hard!

Iran’s Only Nuclear Power Plant Has Emergency Shutdown

Gee this happens right after the so called “Butcher of Tehran” is elected President of Iran. Israel isn’t happy about it and one has to wonder if this nuclear plant shutdown is a welcome gift from Israel. The nuclear deal talks in Vienna have stalled again as well. Here is the English version of an article I found on warnews 24/7.

For the first time since its commissioning in 2013, Iran’s only nuclear power plant has been declared “emergency” and shut down for “repairs”.

The Bushehr plant is Iran’s only nuclear power plant and is used for uranium enrichment.

A message to the new extremist president of Iran?

Is it a “welcome” message from Israel to Iran’s new president? No one can say for sure, but Israeli sources describe Iran’s new president as a “butcher”, saying that ” Iran elected the most extremist president since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.”

The Bushehr nuclear power plant, which has a 1,000 MW reactor, was built by Russia and put into operation in 2013.

Reliable sources speak of something “very serious” that put the factory in a “state of emergency” for the first time .

Technical “failure” at the Bushehr nuclear power plant 

The Bushehr nuclear power plant in southern Iran was shut down “for a few days” after a technical “failure”, the Iranian Atomic Energy Agency announced.

“After a technical failure at the Bushehr station, the facility was temporarily shut down and cut off from the national power grid,” the agency said in a brief statement, without elaborating on the nature of the problem.

According to the national electricity distribution company, the Bushehr nuclear power plant was undergoing “repair” work of an unspecified nature , which may last until the end of the week, which for Iran means Friday.

Israeli attack plans on the table

The company asked the Iranians to limit electricity consumption in order not to burden the grid at a time when the country is experiencing high temperatures.

At the same time, the new head of the Mossad, David Barnea, threatened to launch more covert operations against Iran inside Iranian territory!

It was announced yesterday that the Security Council of Israel will meet to consider the options for air strikes in Iran after the election of the new president, Ebrahim Raisi.

Therefore, all plans for an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities must be reviewed and brought to the attention of the new Israeli government, according to credible information.

Israeli sources emphasize that with the election of a new president in Iran “all options are on the table”!

Israel: Raisi’s election in Iran ‘should be of great concern’ to world

The election of Ebrahim Raisi as president of Iran “should cause great concern” in the world, said a spokesman for the Israeli Foreign Ministry, accusing the newly conservative newly elected president of being committed to Iran’s military nuclear program.

“Mr Rice is committed to a fast-paced military nuclear program, his election clearly reveals Iran’s dangerous intentions and should be of great concern to the international community,” Lior Hayat wrote on Twitter, adding that Iran elected the most extremist president since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

The head of the Judiciary, 60-year-old Ebrahim Raisi, was imposed in the first round of the presidential election amid general dissatisfaction with Iran’s economic and social crisis.

“We have to prepare quickly for a return to the Iranian nuclear deal, ” Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said this week, adding that “Israel will do everything possible to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear bomb.”

Student of the supreme leader

Born in November 1960 in the holy city of Mashhad, Raisi was appointed attorney general of Karaj, next to Tehran, at the age of just 20 after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

He remained in the judiciary for more than three decades: Tehran’s attorney general from 1989 to 1994, deputy head of the judiciary from 2004 to 2014, the year he was nominated as Iran’s attorney general.

In 2016, the country’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, appointed Raisi head of the powerful charity Astan-e Konz Razani, which manages Imam Reza’s mausoleum in Mashhad and his vast real estate. Three years later he was appointed head of the Judicial Authority.

Rice, who always wears the black turban of Sayyid (a descendant of Muhammad), attended Ayatollah Khamenei’s religious and Islamic law classes.

According to his official biography, from 2018 he also taught a Shiite seminar in Mashhad. Many Iranian media have suggested he may be the successor to Iran’s 82-year-old supreme leader in July.

Raisin is also a member of the Council of Experts, which appoints the supreme leader.

He is married to Jamileh Alamolhonda, a professor at Sahid-Behehdi University in Tehran, and they have two daughters. Raisi is the son-in-law of Ahmad Alamolhonda, an imam and regional representative of the supreme leader in Mahsad, Iran’s second holiest city.

For the exiled Iranian opposition, Rice’s name is associated with the mass executions of Marxists and left-wing prisoners in 1988, when he was deputy prosecutor in Tehran’s Revolutionary Court.

When asked in 2018 and 2020 about this black page in Iran’s recent history, Raisi denied any involvement, but praised the “command” given, he said, by Ayatollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic. for these clearances.

Turkey Begins to Organize “Arab Spring” Inside of Israel, Hamas Says Strategy has changed

This is from warnews247 in Greece. I am putting this here in English as a courtesy since some don’t have the Google translator or know how to use it.

It appears that Turkey is helping Hamas in more ways than one and that Hamas’ strategy has changed and it’s war against Israel will no longer be contained to Gaza.

Hamas file photo

Turkey crossed the Rubicon as according to Israeli information, Ankara together with Qatar-Iran have organized 15 armed Palestinian groups and two Salafist-jihadist groups.

These forces are currently fighting against the Israeli armed forces.

The Israelis stress that in the coming days new data will be published about the change of strategy that the Islamists are implementing against Israel.

Turkey: Organizes “Arab Spring” inside Israel

Therefore, according to Israeli sources, this is not just an Israel-Hamas conflict. 

Everything shows that there is a Turkish plan and an attempt to implement the “Syrian Model” by introducing armed groups of jihadists who are fighting on the side of Hamas.

At the same time, the Jihadists now have as their mission the infiltration into the territory of Israel.

That is why we see violence and unrest accompanied by images of civil war in the streets of Israel.

This development is confirmed by the statements of Hamas leaders for “change of the organization’s strategy”.

Heavy bombardment overnight

The Israeli Air Force launched heavy bombardment even in the southern Gaza Strip near the border with Egypt.

Since the start of the Israeli operation “Guardian of the Walls”, the Islamists have fired 3,750 rockets with 550 falling on Gaza. Iron Dome crashed 90%.

Israeli sources say Phase 5 “started” against Hamas by bombing 40 underground networks.

Israel took off 52 fighter jets that relentlessly bombed Hamas targets for 25 minutes. A total of 122 air raids were carried out.

Hamas: There is a change of strategy

Hamas’s spokesman in Iran has revealed that the current conflict is part of the organization’s “strategic shift”. And he explains:

“This war was not instigated by Tehran.

It is not a simple round of confrontation between the Palestinian groups in Gaza and Israel.

Hamas, along with other organizations, has implemented a relocation strategy.

The resistance is no longer just about defending Gaza against Israeli attacks but about defending all Palestinians living in historic Palestine.

In addition, the Resistance will not allow the Israeli occupation forces to attack political targets in Jerusalem (al-Quds).

For the first time we have a riot in Jerusalem, an uprising of Palestinians living in the area since 1948 in the West Bank.

We now have rockets with a range of 250 km.

“We have improved our weapons systems thanks to the help of Islamic countries, especially Iran, which has helped us with the transfer of know-how and materials.”

Iran installs 2nd batch of advanced centrifuges at Natanz

Iran has continued to ramp up its nuclear program in violation of its 2015 agreement with world powers by further enriching uranium and installing new centrifuges, the United Nations’ nuclear agency said.

The fresh breaches of the nuclear deal came as tensions continued to climb in the Middle East, and US and Israeli officials issued warnings about Iran’s nuclear program.

The International Atomic Energy Agency — in a confidential report obtained by Reuters and published Tuesday — said Iran has begun enriching uranium in its underground Natanz plant with a second cascade, or cluster, of centrifuges,.

Iran recently installed a second cascade of advanced IR-2m centrifuges at Natanz to enrich uranium and will soon add a third. Iran was only allowed to use a less advanced type of centrifuge under the terms of the nuclear deal.

The first cascade it installed recently was composed of 174 IR-2m machines, according to Reuters.

Iran’s envoy to the UN nuclear watchdog confirmed on Tuesday the installation of the second batch of advanced centrifuges at Natanz.

“Thanks to our diligent nuclear scientists, two cascades of 348 IR2m centrifuges with almost 4 times the capacity of IR1 are now running… successfully in Natanz,” Kazem Gharibabadi said on Twitter. “Installation of 2 cascades of IR6 centrifuges has also been started in Fordo. There’s more to come soon.”https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1356579388263968768&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.timesofisrael.com%2Fun-iran-breaching-deal-installs-2nd-batch-of-advanced-centrifuges-at-natanz%2F&siteScreenName=timesofisrael&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=550px

Natanz is Iran’s main nuclear enrichment plant. An explosion at the site last year, which foreign media reports have attributed to Israel or the US, damaged an advanced centrifuge development and assembly plant.

Iran said last month it planned to install 1,000 new centrifuges at Natanz within three months and that its scientists had exceeded previous goals for uranium enrichment.

Also last month, Tehran announced it was beginning to enrich uranium up to 20 percent — far beyond the 3.5% permitted under the nuclear deal, and a relatively small technical step away from the 90% needed for a nuclear weapon. Iran also said it was beginning research into uranium metal, a material that technically has civilian uses but is seen as another likely step toward a nuclear bomb.

Iran said last week it would also move to restrict short-notice inspections of suspect nuclear facilities from late February.

Iran insists it is not seeking to develop nuclear weapons, a position repeated last week by its Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Tuesday’s report came amid a flurry of activity surrounding Iran’s nuclear program and as Iran and the US maneuvered ahead of expected negotiations.

US President Joe Biden has said he intends to return to the nuclear deal if Iran first returns to compliance. Iran says the US must first remove all of the sanctions it placed on the country after it withdrew from the treaty.Iran’s nuclear enrichment facility in Natanz, 300 kilometers (186 miles) south of the capital Tehran, on April, 9, 2007. (Hasan Sarbakhshian/AP)

Zarif on Monday asked the European Union to coordinate a synchronized return of both Washington and Tehran into a nuclear deal.

The US and Iran have exchanged barbs, both before and after Biden took control of the White House, including by issuing threats and carrying out military maneuvers.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Sunday that Iran was currently months away from being able to produce enough material to build a nuclear weapon. And, he said, that timeframe could be reduced to “a matter of weeks” if Tehran further violates restrictions it agreed to under the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

Iran and the Trump administration exchanged a steady stream of threats before Trump’s term ended on January 20, with Iran also carrying out fresh breaches of the nuclear agreement. Iran’s aggressive moves were believed to be partially aimed at increasing its leverage ahead of negotiations with Biden.

Iran Deploys Short Range Missiles to Iraq, Threatens “great Catasrophe” on Israel, New video Update 12-30-20!

We have some alarming reports coming out of Iran from AlMasdarnews.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has deployed short-range missiles and drones to Iraq, Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Qabas reported, citing anonymous sources inside Iran.

According to the sources, the rockets in question were domestically-made Arash guided missiles and were delivered to facilities and camps of pro-Iran Iraqi armed groups.

The sources did not specify what type of drones were deployed, but noted that they were also produced in Iran and are stationed in high-security sites in Iraq’s south.

The sources emphasized that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps could potentially use the hardware to hit targets within Iraq and in neighboring countries in the coming weeks or after US President Donald Trump leaves the White House.

Iran threatens ‘great catastrophe on Israel’ to awaken Arab world

Rezaei commented on the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh , saying: “A new war has begun between Iran and its enemies, and this war is continuing.”

“In any case, this is another war, and it is natural that we are martyred in this war … The war is not over yet,” he continued.

The Secretary of the Expediency Council stressed that “Iran will end the war,” saying: “Iran will bring a catastrophe to the Zionist entity until the Arab countries allied with this entity realize that they have made a big mistake.”

There were military exercises in the Gaza strip carried out by Hamas and allegedly at the behest of Iran. Some pictures and video from Twitter are below.

Israeli Submarine is Moving Towards the persian Gulf

Arab sources are telling Hebrew language website KAN.org that an Israeli submarine is transiting the Suez Canal and the Red Sea on its way to the Persian Gulf as a show of force to Iran. This comes as tensions remain high after the assassination of the Iranian nuclear scientist Muhsin Fakhrizadeh a few weeks ago.

Also Mitt Romney is back on the media trail demonizing Russia and the cyber attacks that were revealed last week. Now Romney is quoted as saying “They potentially have the capacity to cripple us economically, they went to our businesses. They have the potential to also cripple us with regards to our water and electricity and so forth.” You can see where this is going can’t you? Yep, dark winter.

Keep praying and keep prepping! Prayed up and prepped up! Sources are listed below.

Israel May be Struck by Iran Tonight, 11-30-20

The war drums are beating quite loudly and there are indications from sources around the world that say Iran will strike Israel and strike hard! The likely targets? The port in Haifa and Tel Aviv. There could be more but that’s what I have for now.

From Hal Turner:

Intelligence intercepts, air surveillance and satellite recon are ALL pointing to a missile launch by Iran – or its proxies in the Golan Heights – against the Israeli port city of Haifa – TONIGHT.

Iran has vowed to avenge the murder of its top nuclear program scientist.

The remains of the weapon used in the Friday assassination of senior nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh show that it was made in Israel, an informed source told Press TV.

UPDATE 3:51 PM EST —

Hezbollah is evacuating their (near Israel) Syrian posts . . . They seem to KNOW an attack is coming.

It’s just after midnight in the region, and things seem to happen between 0200 and 0500

A summary from INL on YT

Say your prayers and keep making your preps. God bless and stand firm.

IRAN VOWS SEVERE REVENGE AND WARNS THE US AND ISRAEL AGAINST ANY “ADVENTURISM” DURING TRUMPS FINAL DAYS

It appears that Israel and the US want a war with Iran one way or another as Iran’s top nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh-Mahavadi was assassinated early Friday morning. Iran has vowed “severe revenge” against whoever perpetrated the attack and have also warned the US and Israel against any adventures during Trump’s (supposed) final days in office.

Others are reporting that Iran’s security council has met and has agreed to strike and take revenge for this act, but it has not been determined who they will strike as of yet. Some are speculating that it could be a massive missile strike against Israel AND the US bases in the region. We shall soon see.

Assassination!

Prayed up and prepped up! Stay ready because this could POP at any moment now! Everything is in place!

US Says “We Don’t Recognize Your Border” After Russia Stops Warship

The US just doesn’t recognize the border because it was made in 1984 by the USSR. Yet no one has challenged it until now? Why?

The US just keeps pushing everyone’s buttons and it’s becoming clear that they will push Russia, China and Iran into a war with the US that they simply can’t win without using nuclear weapons. I would expect at least some to be exchanged. As always remain prayed up and prepped up, this could kick off anytime now! God bless!
