Us and Israeli intelligence :Iran is not building a nuclear bomb

Recent comments by U.S and Israeli military leaders indicate that the
intelligence services of the two countries agree that Iran has not decided to build a nuclear bomb, a crack in the Western narrative that
the U.S. press corps won’t accept, as ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern
explains.



By Ray McGovern


Has Iran decided to build a nuclear bomb? That would seem to be the
central question in the current bellicose debate over whether the world
should simply cripple Iran’s economy and inflict severe pain on its
civilian population or launch a preemptive war to destroy its nuclear
capability while possibly achieving “regime change.”
And if you’ve been reading the New York Times or following the rest
of the Fawning Corporate Media, you’d likely assume that everyone who
matters agrees that the answer to the question is yes, although the FCM
adds the caveat that Iran insists

  • If Israel and the US are so concerned about WMD and Nuclear weapons over there why wont one of the complainers (ISRAEL) sign the NNPT and allow UN and IAEA inspections of their Nuclear Facilities. What are they trying to hide, because according to US law (Symington Ammendment) it is against US law for the US to give any country who possesses Nuclear Weapons but wont signt the NNPT or allow inspections

    • @OnlyLiarsBlock

      Totally agree with you, but you have to understand that Israel is like a leech that infest its host for its gain and America is the host. Anything Israel want or do is ok so long as America is under this infestation.

  • MOSSAD is killing civillian scientists even though Israel admits that Iran is not building a nuclear bomb, that means that they are simply murdering innocent Irananian citizens.
    Funny how Israel is always allowed to get away with stuff like that.

  • The reality is that Israeli and US government warhawks are only bluffing, they're hoping they can print and spew a bunch of bullshit and that people will swallow the hook, line and sinker altogether like they did with Saddam, here's the thing though, people remember past actions, so we begin to unveil the Israeli and US governments real face and intentions.

  • 2 years before we invaded Iraq Saddam had started trading oil for denominations other than the USD. Iran is now in talks with China and Russia to trade their Oil for Gold.

    • @ridvanco I would prefer to know nothing about Iraq or Iran or Israel,or Libya,etc.etc.etc.. Your business is none of my (or my Governments) business.Unless another Country commits an act of war against us we should let them live their lives as they have for Thousands of years without our intervention.

  • Building an a-bomb is very challenging. Getting the enriched uranium is an incredibly complicated task that takes a lot of time, expertise and money. Assessing those capabilities from outside a closed dictatorship like Iran is very challenging. Discovering that Iran wants to do it, can do it, will try to do and IS doing it - that is all hard work for the intelligence community.

  • I think the issue was that they were building the tools needed to make a bomb later.

    Not sure who said they were actually building a bomb. I have only heard that they were x number of days from having the capability.
