Iran doubles up

iran nuclearIran has told the United Nations nuclear watchdog that it’s building a second uranium enrichment plant.

It says the plant is not yet operational, and is intended only to produce electricity.

Already the leaders of the U.S, the U.K and France have called for inspectors to be allowed to visit the second plant.

Here’s what our World Affairs Correspondent Paul  Reynolds sees it :

“Iranian ambitions for this site are not known. It could be that they wanted a back-up in case their main plant at Natanz was attacked. But another fear is that they intended to enrich uranium more highly at the secret plant, to a level suitable for a nuclear explosion.”

Iran is certainly looking at tougher sanctions against it, so what do you make of this ?

    A thorough inspection and an honest and comprehensive report by the IAEA should be the precursor to any further talk with Iran.

    i truely accept. Iran is trying to play a cat and mouse game and for years now its starting to go down that path iraq once went under the reign of the maximum ruler sadam- recently the iranian people said to to this iresponsible leadership from its president but true to its repressive style the mandate of the people was stolen and thrown away with the help of its so-called supreme leaders.
    I urge president Obama and all other leaders of the west to demand that this rogue regime in iran submitt itself to the will of the IAEA and untill then this regime and its sponsors be traed as a defacto leadership not authourized by the people of irean to negotiate or decide its future

    Dear Ros,

    Another news for alarm! It is brace to the outside world. They may have half a dozen such facilities and may be more. Iran is hell bent on developing a nuclear bomb to be a force to reckoned with. It has no friends in the Sunni dominated Islamic world is another reason for its inexorable pursuit for nuclear capability apart from its rabid hate towards Jews and Israel. I believe that disintegration of the erstwhile Soviet Union was not only helpful to Iran to get all professional and technical support but the only source for raw materials for developing nuclear weapons. Who knows Iran hasn’t a nuclear bomb already in its arsenal?

    It is a very dangerous situation for sure. This is why I believe that the U. S. must remain as the sole super-power to address issues like this. Look! China hasn’t agreed with the other four in further sanctions against Iran. Russia did not make any serious commitments yet to impose further punitive measures against its latest revelation of a second uranium enrichment facility on the eve of it was about to be detected by the international atomic energy sleuths – the CIA or the Israeli intelligence.

    Weapons of mass destruction in the hands of bigots will destroy this world – beware!

    It is a shame that the people in the west openely apply double standard in their dealings with the world’s people. Israel was told not to continue to build illegal settlement on Palestinian land……….No threat, No saction was issued. They refused. Israel is the only country with Nuclear weapon in the middle east, Nobody is compelling them to join IAEA. Why are you westerners so paranoid about Arabs and Islam?

    • September 25, 2009 at 16:55

      Dear Tunde, us westerners are certainly not paranoid about Arabs,we work with them every day.You will have to excuse us if we get a little paranoid about Islam,when some of it’s bigoted clerics offer nothing but death and destruction.Osamer Bin Laden,although not a cleric,is a devout Islamist,and looked up to by a lot of people.

        And hello David. You didn’t answer the question of double standards. What if Islamism and Bin Laden are simply enemies imposed upon the world by the USA to increase arms sales. In my opinion Iran was a useful ‘red herring’ to divert attention of the world from the fact that the G20 is just a talking shop.Just a thought.

    *Tehran has had the benefit of the doubt on this for long enough.
    *A secret facility only makes sense as part of a weapons development programme. The rest of the world would have to be as mad as Ahmadinejad to believe the latest Iranian claim that this was really all about producing electricity.
    *The regime is unfit to be a nuclear power. The civilised world can’t risk a nuclear holocaust. Forget toothless UN agencies and other international bodies. Force is now a legitimate option. It may play into the hands of those who wanted a war with Iran regardless, but the regime has only its own colossal stupidity to blame for that (in the same way that Saddam, by pretending to have WMDs, gave others a pretext to destroy him).
    *Israel is the country most threatened by this. It has nothing to lose by destroying either facility, or any others that it claims are such. It needn’t fear the hate of its enemies, just the possibility that they acquire nuclear weapons. I hope the Israelis have the guts to do it.

    @ Tunde

    Because Israel has rational leaders that don’t take orders from the sky fairy. Israel has had nuclear weapons for 40+ years and still their neighbors have attacked them, so obviously Israel isn’t really too likely to use them. Given Iran funds international terrorism and terrorist organizations, and is run by religious fanatics, do you really want a nation like that having nuclear weapons? I have no problem with sane, rational nations, having them. Even potential enemies like China. Because I know their leadership is rational and if they used nuclear weapons, they realize what mutually assured destruction would mean.

    Iran doubles up, the world continues it’s double standards.

    Iran is put under scrutiny, sanctions and threats for not abiding by UN resolutions and IAEA demands for full cooperation on it’s nuclear programme.

    Israel escapes (i.e. the US vetoes) scrutiny, sanctions and threats for not abiding by UN resolutions, a few days ago the US even voted against demands for Israel’s nuclear weapons to be investigated.

    The insistence on elevating and maintaining Israel as the only regional nuclear and superpower regardless of its many ongoing crimes against Arabs, continues to erode the credibility of the West, and pushes the average man on the street to support anyone that opposes and challenges Israeli and American dominance of the Middle East.

      I totally agree. Israel has nuclear weapons, and has never admitted this, let alone allowed inspection by the IAEA.

      While this double standard remains, the West’s efforts to restrain Iran will have no credibility, and worse, no success.

    Good for them! I have no problems with Iran building another uranium enrichment site. It makes sence to have more than one site incase some of its sites are attacked.Untill today there IS NO CONCRETE Evidence from a PARTIAL(this has eliminated most the UN and western countries),CREDIBAL AND TRUSTED source that Iran is developing a nuclear weapon. Atleast the iranians had the guts to admit it to the international community unlike Israel who has totaly refused to co-operate with the UN regarding their nuclear bombs. So iran has every right to do what they want!

    We back Israel while they expand their borders at will building by building. Then we suspect Iran is building nuclear weapons and punish without proof. These two nations will never have true peace do to the fundamentalist religious beliefs they both have. Neither is a threat to anyone beyond shared borders.

    My question is why do we care what either one does or support either equally unyielding view? They deserve the misery they cause each other.

      @Denis juniour why are you not demanding the same of Israel? Why is Israel so secretive about its nuclear weapons? Why are they refusing to co-operate with the UN on monitoring their nuclear arsenal? There is NO CONCRETE RELIABLE EVIDENCE from a PARTIAL,CREDIBLE AND TRUSTED source that Iran is developing nuclear weapons.

    September 25, 2009 at 16:39

    There is no one good enough to have nukes. What are they for? If it is criminal with one it should be criminalized to all. We are all intelligent enough to know this. It is the high time that even the so called nuclear club should come out open and state why they have them.
    The biggest danger we face today is realization that a government or a political system can be hijacked to serve interests of only one person or a small club of influential people who refuse to account for their strange behaviors with regards to peace. By this date, we do not have such a government in this world. Recent misadventures by few regimes have shifted the goal towards peace almost irretrievable. We must believe that peace for all humanity is possible naturally or it is artificial like it is to day due to increase of dramatized nationalism akin to what precipitated the last world wars.

    September 25, 2009 at 16:59

    Frankly, I do not believe that this is the best course for Iran to take at this time of our history. It is not reasonable at all and yet they have their own reasons. Electricity is not out of reach through other means in that country. This should be a concern to all of us Iranians included because it is a reckless way to squander precious peace and its peoples economic reserves. This is a pain to all of us but why? What are the true causes of these events and what is the acceptable cost of peace?

    .A large facility suggests the high throughput at relatively low enrichment levels appropriate for producing quantities of fissile material for use as nuclear power plant fuel. Iran has previously stated its wishes securely to produce electrical energy by this means. Weapons require much smaller quantities of much more highly enriched fissile material. Thus, very much smaller and much more easily hidden production facilities would seem the more prudent route. Why disclose what would be much easier to hide? This doesn’t make any sense. Suggestions of fanatical insanity just don’t cut it. While I don’t agree with Iran’s method of governance, I do not see the haphazard behaviors typified by mental illness. Comments and actions intended just to “punch people’s buttons” seem the more likely explanation. Responding in kind is just poor policy! The bottom line here is pretty simple: Loud, upset, insecure, ill-informed folks exhibit very poor judgment – populations and politicos alike. Nuclear weapons are big noisy, exceedingly destructive devices, from which rational people should stay far away. People aren’t good at keeping secrets, thus talking and waiting always increase the knowledge necessary to make a good decision.

    I can understand why Iran would want the bomb. That doesn’t mean I agree with anything they say or that I think it’s a good idea- it’s just an example of the insane logic of nuclear deterrence. North Korea was vulnerable to attack by technologicaly superior armies until the day it successfully tested its own weapon, and if I were sitting on one of the largest oil reserves in the world I would probably want one too.
    The late Carl Sagan had the perfect analogy – we’re all in one big room up to our knees in gasoline and everyone thinks they’re somehow safer if they have a book of matches.
    At least Obama understands what Bush did not – we cannot afford to ignore or dismiss anyone, and the crazier someone talks the harder we need to listen.

    NK has nuclear weapons to blackmail the west for money so that the Kim family can stay in power. Nobody has threatened NK or to invade NK, it was North Korea that threatens to invade South Korea. Kim wants to get paid off to give up the nuclear programs so he can stay in power and his family to remain in power forever.

  26. September 25, 2009 at 18:22

    In the last 6 decades Israel has fought 20 wars 19 of which it started, has repeatedly invaded its neighbors, has at least 200 nukes, and has refused to sign the NPT. In the same period Iran has invaded nobody, fought only one war with Iraq in which they were attacked, has signed the NPT, and has no nukes. Why is Iran the object of hysterical concern? Only one nation keeps the Middle East destabilized and it isn’t Iran, and under continuous threat from this country it is inevitable that Iran would feel the need of a deterrent.

    On the basis that nuclear weapons are bad, the discussion with Iran can move on. On the basis that Iran was bad, while nuclear weapons otherwise were ok, we were stuck.
    Now of course everyone who hates Iran and the Iranian president, will pounce on this announcement and demand tougher sanctions. Don’t. We are moving in the right direction. Let’s see what the next round of negotiations brings, and in the mean time, “hold your fire”.

      They disclosed it because western intelligence agencies already knew about it… this was less an act of transparency than Iran would like for the world to believe as much a move to cover their actions in the face of terrible consequences. Even Russia will have a hard time maintaining a supportive stance towards Iran in the face of Iran developing nuclear weapons.

    September 25, 2009 at 18:34

    This woman (Iranian in Britain?) claiming that this is just another scare tactic by the U.S. to convince the world that it should turn on Iran like Bush did with Iraq and the claim of WMDs is somewhat preposterous. One, Iran admits the second enrichment site, this is somewhat different than an outside country unilaterally declaring that Iran is producing WMDs without evidence. Two, the claim that the U.S. should have known about it long ago simply on the basis that the Intel community uses satellites fails to take into account that satellites images are just that, images. Granted there are different types of imaging used but you can only see so much, especially if someone has taken steps for things to remain hidden. If the enrichment site is underground, a satellite is not necessarily going to see it depending on how deep it is and what kind of shielding is being used. Three, the amount of centrifuges are not conducive to enrichment for the purpose of energy production. A single energy producing reactor requires hundreds of tons of fuel per year, weapons production only requires less than 100 pounds of enriched uranium for a nuclear device; 3,000 centrifuges are more conducive to the latter rather than the former.

    However, if the U.S. has known about this for several months, we’re seeing somewhat of a breakdown in Western intelligence gathering since these enrichment facilities cannot be set up quickly and the second site is alleged to be close to completion if not already complete. But I think this is a separate issue.

    I know plenty on the left want Iran to have nuclear weapons so they can stand up to the USA and threaten Israel. But the left also normally is antinuclear weapons, and usually for nonproliferation. If Iran gets nuclear weapons, the Sunni Arab nations, who hate each other, will also develop Nuclear weapons, and there will be a lot more nuclear weapons out there. Is your loathing of the US and Israel really worth this?

      I can understand why Iran would benefit from a nuclear weapon, thats not to say I want them to aquire the bomb. This ball has been rolling for sometime though, Iraq was effectively shut out of the nuclear game in the eighties by Israel and I suspect that with or without the consent of the United States nevermind the United Nations, Israel will take the effective steps to stop Iran’s nuclear ambtions. I think at the heart of this Iran is primarily trying to develope its infastructure and produce electricity; the bomb is likely on the backbuner at the moment. What I don’t think is helpful is the rhetoric that has been directed towards Iran and its leadership. I think we can be firm about our concerns without the childish name calling.

    Hi all. My name clearly indicates that I’m Iranian. It’s derived from the name of ancient Persian king, Cyrus. If you don’t reprimand me for speaking with a certain level of pro-Iranian bias, I would like to remind you that over the past 100 years, Iran never attacked nor did it occupy any of the world countries. Maybe the aggressive tone of some political leaders in the recent years has given Israel and US the pretext to accuse Iran of funding international terrorism, but you’ll see that Ahmadinejad will leave office within 4 years and Iran will remain the most peaceful country of the region.

    When Saddam Hussain invaded Iran and unleashed its bombs and missiles on Tehran and the other urban areas, Iranian leaders responded to their people conservatively: “Our religious beliefs doesn’t allow us to retaliate by using the missiles.” So they worked through ground invasion just in order to regain the lands Saddam had stolen from Iran. 400,000 Iranian youths were killed by chemical weapons, and my uncle was one of them. I still collect the photos showing him burnt by the state-of-art chemical weapons which U.S. had sold to Saddam…

    However, my best friends are American, and I admire President Obama as a fluently respectable leader. I don’t want to see any nation wiped off the map. I just ask you to believe that “Iranian” is not equivalent to terrorist. When Aftonbladet published that critical article on organ harvest issue, tens of European diplomats rushed to apologize Israel and declare that freedom of expression is not unrestricted. How one endures Wall Street Journal explicitly calling Iranian President a terrorist and all of alive consciences remaining silent?

  34. September 25, 2009 at 23:06

    I am unwilling to make assumptions on motives for this disclosure. It is possible that US or other international intelligence had identified this facility and Iran merely preempted an accusation.

    In any event, and in my opinion, Iran has the right to clean energy for their people. If Iran desires greater legitimacy and acceptance from the West and its neighbors, Iran’s development of nuclear technology should be done in the open, and consistent with IAEA rules, and other international conventions and agreements. Iran may feel these rules are unfair or were developed without Iranian input, but countries must enter the international dialogue and engage their perceived antagonists to influence these conventions.

    I encourage a measured response to this disclosure. The US, UK, and others have raised their unsurprising objections and condemnations of Iran developing this facility, apparently in secret. Personally I agree with these reactions. But having made the necessary political statements in the public forum, let us now engage Iran regarding an inspection team to visit this facility and ensure it is designed for power generation rather than weapons development, and let us monitor this facility on a go forward basis.

    I am not so naive to believe that Iran and the West can suddenly become bosom buddies, but let us explore this disclosure as a way to engage Iran. Sanctions are likely an essential tool to require Iran’s cooperation, but an incursion to unilaterally destroy the facility is an absurd knee-jerk reaction in my estimation.

The US has a large cash of nuclear weapons, so who are they to dictate who else can and cannot have them. Based on past activities I would put the US as a greater threat to world peace than Iran. The UN is corrupt, they have to either have one rule for all, or else leave nations to make their own laws and decisions, I prefer the latter.

    How can Gordon Brown accuse President Ahmadinejad of “deceit” when he was a member of the UK Cabinet that deceived the British people in such a serious way that we went to war against Iraq? Mr Brown needs to take a look in the mirror and reflect on how much damage he has been party to since the Labour party were elected. He cannot realistically claim to have benefited the UK and the sooner he realises that he is not a leader, the better for all of us. He is an embarrassment to us all on the world stage and his efforts to be associated, in any way possible, with President Obama and some of the other leaders of real stature is pathetic.

  42. September 27, 2009 at 18:51

    Dear all,

    I would like to tel all of you that things are moving in the right direction. Iran’s government unlike Israel government has shown transparency and honesty and has allowed inspectors of the IAEA to inspect the sight. Further to that, it informed the world about its second nuclear enrichment plant before its operation and this just shows the clean intentions of president Ahmedinijad. Israel has been a nuclear power since 40 years and it fails to admit this fact and does not allow inspection in its country.

    Why does the world pounce on the inocent one? Why not tell Israel to destroy its nuclear weapons? All America could do with Israel was hold talks with its prime minister and tell him to stop settlement in the West Bank. It couldn’t impose sanctions, nor could it force it to do anything that would spoil its relations with the U.S. This is clear partiality and the United Nations should be renamed “United Western Nations” or “Anti Muslim nations”. A peaceful country like Iran is the target of all Western countries and even discussed in the G20 summit and the dangerous Israel that has fought 20 wars in the last 20 years is set free and bills against it are vetoed by America. This is favoritism and anti-Muslim feeling.

    I believe the Iran is inocent and its intentions are pure and very clear.

    At Steev, Ahmedinajid can lie about homo sexuals but not about nuclear weapons. America has satellites to inspect nuclear sights but they failed and Iran proves to be the inocent one again.

    Iran has oil.USA and G20 Nations control 85% world Economy. The only Reason
    G20 is rich and have built infrastructure is due to Oil based Economy Oil based
    Currency Cars Airplane Heating Taxes airport Taxes Car Park Taxes Cars and Fuel Taxes. Building parking lots and Malls and shopping Centers and traveling to Work and driving 5 seaters car alone charging Toll money and luxuriously allowing each family member own car of their own. To Dictate World Economy G20 need Iran Oil and Muslim World Oil mines Hotels motels and car Plane Homes insurance and Life insurance. Iran says Iran oil is for Iranians and wishes to set a Role model to rely on Nuke Powered Electricity Plant for which upto 5% Uranium Enriching needed to Produce Electricity. What is wrong? Ayatollahs are well known for telling the Truth and G20 Leaders telling Untruth (Remind yourself for Iraq OIL invasion using Iraq WMD Gimmick and 9/11 Pretext).Must we have 11/11 Pretext this time for Iran Invasion using same Iran WMD gimmick and Iran Missiles References In lieu of Skud Missiles fired from Baghdad reaching TelAviv and Haifa?

    WMD in Middle east Iran nil -Israel 200 and counting.Israel has the 3rd largest stockpile of nuclear and chemical WMD on the planet and has never been inspected by anybody, how come? I am not saying it is right for Iran to develope nuclear weapons but USA funds Israel and it`s own WMD so is it not a little bit hypocritical to blame everything on Iran ?

    I think World Have your Say should debate this topic ( of Israel`s WMD visa ve the rest of the Middle East ) but I bet it wont !

    I say that is good for Iran.They do have the right to construct ten if they wish to.No one appointed the west and the United States in particular as the world policemen.They keep on upgradding Isreal at the expense of the palestine people and they say no country is entittled to nuclear weapons when they have them in abandunce.Who is by law supposed to have nuclear weapons and who came up with that law?They want to be the only people with such weapons so that they can keep on destroying the other countries the way they are destroying Iraq and Afghanistan.Someone has to stand up to the West and the US in particular to tell them that they are not the rights of all just because what they say is a human Right abuse should be considered as one when they are doing the opposite somewhere.The developing countries and the under developed countries must do what they want when they want and where they want.

    It is the west which is now grounded not Iran.The days of the Western and American threats are long gone.We the third world countries and the developing world can decide to co-operate among ourselves and find other allies like in Russia and other places and life will go on.They have to know that Isreal wasn’t authorised by God to have WMD but the West.Now that Iran is becoming a threat to Isreal,the West is complaining.Why didn’t they complain when Isreal was deatroying Innocent lifes in Lebanon or the Gaza strip to show that they are fair?
