Remember all that empty verbiage President Obama spewed about stopping Iran's nuclear program? Remember "all options on the table" and "the U.S. won't allow Iran to achieve nuclear weapons capability."
Well, now we're finding out what that really means, which is that it was an empty promise. It meant absolutely nothing but obfuscation and double-dealing.
According to the AP, White House negotiators are now prepared to let Iran keep 10,000 centrifuges -- basically all of them -- and implement some "safeguards" that absolutely no one will be able to verify. What it means is that Iran gets to build the bomb, but the U.S. can say that they put in "safeguards" to stop their nuclear program.
Here's the AP:
According to the diplomats, the proposal could leave running most of the nearly 10,000 centrifuges Iran is operating but reconfigure them to reduce the amount of enriched uranium they produce. One of the diplomats said the deal could include other limitations to ensure that Tehran's program is kept in check.In other words, Obama has been lying for the past seven years and Iran will get the bomb -- if it is not stopped first. Welcome to Armageddon.
One of the diplomats said the deal could include other limitations to ensure that Tehran's program is kept in check. For one, Iran would be allowed to store only a specific amount of uranium gas, which is fed into centrifuges for enrichment. The amount of gas would depend on the number of centrifuges it keeps.
Second, Iran would commit to shipping out most of the enriched uranium it produces, leaving it without enough to make a bomb. Iran denies any interest in nuclear weapons and says its program is for peaceful uses such as nuclear power and medical technology.
