Meir Dagan, when he retired as Mossad chief last week, estimated that difficulties had held back Iran’s race for a nuclear bomb until early 2014 or 2015. He did not mention the Stuxnet virus invading its systems or the untimely deaths of its nuclear scientists. He did refer to arguments in Iran’s ruling elite which had delayed the attainment of its goal, indicating that without those disputes Tehran would have acquired a nuclear capability by now – or very soon. But most strikingly, Dagan omitted mention of the short cuts available to Iran, as noted here by DEBKAfile‘s military, intelligence and Iranian sources: (1) Not all Iran’s concealed nuclear facilities have been discovered by Western intelligence – not even Mossad. Given Iran’s record of concealment, it would be foolish, for instance, to ignore the possibility of a secret plant enriching uranium at full speed somewhere underground out of range of the UN nuclear watchdog’s cameras recording every centrifuge spinning at Natanz. They may still be undetected by spy satellites and unbeknownst even to the defectors and double agents willing to collaborate with the West. A single secret facility of this kind would invalidate the current Western estimate of Iran’s stock of low-grade enriched uranium as standing at 3,000 kilos. The real amount could be 20 times or even 100 times as much, enough for three or four bombs. (2) The same applies to the “malfunctions” undoubtedly holding up the program. No competent agency would risk guaranteeing that every last Iranian facility has been crippled or exposed to cyber invasion …
Officer refusing homosexual training program reassigned
No punishment, new job, broad support from fellow officers, commanders
The Army National Guard officer who refuses to cooperate with the Obama administration’s plan to force open homosexuality on the military is not being punished. On the contrary, the lieutenant colonel, whose identity is being protected at his request, is getting exactly what he asked for: transfer from a command to a staff position so he will not have to order troops to undergo the Pentagon’s pro-‘gay’ indoctrination. “Today is my last day in command,” said the career Army officer. “From now on I’ll be a staff officer without a bunch of people working under me, so I won’t have the moral conflict with having to enforce this new policy on them. “It’s not punitive, the state is actually standing by my position. I’ve worked with some really good commanders over the years and we have a good rapport.” The officer, who formerly commanded a battalion-sized unit, has strongly held religious beliefs that homosexual behavior is morally wrong, and he thinks the military will be damaged severely if it implements the Obama administration’s plan to allow homosexuals to serve openly. He said many of the men under his command share his views . . . “When I retire I will speak on the record. I don’t know how much I can do before that. Sooner or later I’m going to get told to shut up. If I continue to make statements, it might become a witch hunt. I don’t want to lose my retirement unless it comes to the point they tell me I have to attend the [pro-‘gay’] training.” Many fellow officers are applauding him for the stand he has taken, the officer told World Net Daily …
[Editor’s Note: The Iranian attitude towards world concerns about its nuclear program continues to be shouted defiantly. Ahmadinejad’s interest in gaining nuclear independence would not be of such a concern, indeed, would be none of the world’s business, were it not for its stated hostility towards neighboring states.
Although it’s feasible the present crisis conditions will subside, Iran has openly vowed to retaliate for what it says is the state-sanctioned murder of certain members of its nuclear brain trust. The political brinkmanship is potentially vulnerable to a miscalculation, for a recent German analysis says the Stuxnet virus has set back Iran’s ambitions by about 2 years. What should be of real concern is not being voiced anywhere. What if the Stuxnet virus were actually designed to seize control of Iran’s nukes, and actually cause them to self destruct as a way of discrediting the regime’s braggadocio concerning their technical prowess? In other words, a conspiracy to cause Iran’s systems to initiate a nuclear event is a very real possibility, and then the only “reasonable” response would be to retaliate in what would then become the most destructive ‘false flag’ episode in world history.
The high stakes poker game being played can only end in tragedy. It’s not a case of if, but when, and if the international cabal that is scheming on world dominion gets its way, it’s likely to be sooner than later. For more on the end of the age, see the book The Reckoning LINK]
