Shultz and Kissinger both pan the Obama Iran deal

There are warning signs that Obamas deal over Iran is starting to get speed wobbles.

There is no certainty he can get it past Congress and now elder statesmen like Henry Kissinger and George Schultz are expressing reservations.

Two former US secretaries of state – Henry Kissinger and George Shultz – penned an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday criticizing President Barack Obama for the framework agreement his administration reached with Iran last week.

The former top diplomats said that the framework agreement with Iran effectively concedes any option of using military force to compel Iranian compliance.

?Mixing shrewd diplomacy with open defiance of UN resolutions, Iran has gradually turned the negotiation on its head,? Kissinger and Shultz wrote in the Journal. ?Iran?s centrifuges have multiplied from about 100 at the beginning of the negotiation to almost 20,000 today. The threat of war now constrains the West more than Iran.?

?While Iran treated the mere fact of its willingness to negotiate as a concession, the West has felt compelled to break every deadlock with a new proposal. In the process, the Iranian program has reached a point officially described as being within two to three months of building a nuclear weapon. Under the proposed agreement, for 10 years Iran will never be further than one year from a nuclear weapon and, after a decade, will be significantly closer.? ? Read more »

Bibi calls out the US over Iran

Truth Revolt reports:

On Tuesday, Iranian Commander Mohammad Reza Naghdi, the head of the Basij paramilitary forces was quoted as saying, “The destruction of Israel is non-negotiable and the freedom of Palestine is one of our highest priorities.” On Wednesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu struck back, saying, “Yesterday an Iranian general brazenly declared,’Israel’s destruction is non-negotiable.’ But evidently giving Iran’s murderous regime a clear path to the bomb is negotiable. This is unconscionable.”

Netanyahu pointed out many of the inconsistencies of Iran’s positions in the nuclear negotiation and the weakness of the positions of the P+1 negotiators, warning that they are embarking on a road which not only endangers?Israel but the entire world.

Yesterday an Iranian general brazenly declared: “Israel’s destruction is non-negotiable”. But evidently giving Iran’s murderous regime a clear path to the bomb is negotiable. This is unconscionable.

I agree with those who have said that Iran’s claim that its nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes doesn’t square with Iran’s insistence on keeping underground nuclear facilities, advanced centrifuges?and a heavy water reactor.

After years of opposing nuclear power the Green taliban Australia are coming around to it

After decades of telling us nuclear power is evil, despite more people dying in Ted Kennedy’s car than in US nuclear accidents, the green taliban have now worked out that nuclear power is the only truly green power solution.

Now in Australia the green taliban are realising that they really need to embrace nuclear power if they are to come even close to maintaining our lifestyle and reduce emissions.

ALARMISTS like Jay Weatherill now finally admit nuclear power isn?t actually a terrifying mass-killing menace.

Now they say we need nuclear to stop their latest terrifying mass-killing menace ? global warming.

Can you believe these guys? Nuclear power has switched from our greatest threat to greatest saviour. Yet none of these hypesters has said sorry for having peddled such baseless scares.

Take Weatherill, South Australia?s Labor Premier. As a budding politician he was ??opposed to nuclear power, all elements of it?, but this week said he?d changed his mind.

Now he was calling a royal commission to ?consider what role our state can potentially play in the fuel cycle for the peaceful use of nuclear energy?. See, Weatherill reckons a nuclear industry might help save his struggling state.

The most obvious money-spinner would be a nuclear waste facility, like one Pangea tried to sell in 1999 that would have earned us $2 billion a year.

It makes sense. We have the stable geology and stable government to store the world?s nuclear waste, safe from earthquakes and terrorists.

But such facts never used to count with the likes of the unapologetic Weatherill. Such alarmists instead mounted the usual scare against Pangea and ran it out of town. Pangea couldn?t even get interviews with the young Howard government. ? Read more »

How many people will die from Fukushima?

Well, if the latest research is anything to go by, not many, if any.

Andrew Bolt writes:

WHERE are those shameless nuclear hysterics who whipped up the Fukushima panic, now punctured by a United Nations report?

The UN Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation last week found none of the Japanese public is likely to get sick from the 2011 incident, when a tsunami smashed into the Fukushima reactor.

“It is unlikely to be able to attribute any health effects in the future among the general public and the vast majority of workers,” UNSCEAR it said.

“No radiation-related deaths or acute effects have been observed among nearly 25,000 workers . . . It is unlikely that excess cases of thyroid cancer due to radiation exposure would be detectable.”? Read more »
