Iran is Building New Nuclear Reactors – Obama says OK
January 15, 2015 10:19am PST
So, this apparently is happening, and no, this is not a joke. The Iranian government announced that they will begin construction on two new nuclear reactors this week. Even better, the regime is ACTUALLY considering a motion that would allow the country to enrich uranium to ’any level it wishes’
And, President Obama, in all his wisdom, says that the construction somehow does not violate the current nuclear deal with the U.S.
The Free Beacon reported:
Iran is permitted to build new nuclear reactors under the existing conditions of an interim deal with the United States meant to curb Tehran’s nuclear ambitions, a State Department official told the Washington Free Beacon less than a day after Iran announced the construction of two new nuclear plants.
The construction of these new nuclear plants is not prohibited under existing United Nations restrictions or under the terms of the current interim nuclear agreement inked in 2013 with the United States, according to the State Department official.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced on Wednesday that Iran has begun construction on two new light water reactor nuclear plants in the southern Bushehr region. The announcement came as senior U.S. officials meet with their Iranian counterparts in Geneva for another round of talks.
The State Department says that it is still reviewing the details of Rouhani’s announcement.
“We are aware of the announcement and are reviewing the details,” said the official, who was not authorized to speak on record. However, “in general, the construction of light water nuclear reactors is not prohibited by U.N. Security Council resolutions, nor does it violate the JPOA,” the official said.
The United States remains committed to ensuring the “peaceful” nature of Iran’s nuclear program, which continues to progress in part as talks continue through July 1.
Wait, I’m confused. How is this supposedly peaceful? If the U.S. was doing this, all hell would break loose. The world would be unhinged and Obama would be over there bowing and kissing shoes of our enemies. God forbid we have a leader of the free world that actually leads. Geez. Why don’t we just give them all our launch codes and loan them some of our service members to help them attack us while you’re at it. You had one job, Obama. Protect America, OK?
