Iranian Nazis are a global threat

I got this in the e-mail from HonestReporting.com:

Iran: A Threat to Israel and the World

The world can no longer ignore the threat posed by Iran.

Although most of the world press has done an admirable job reporting on the developments of the Iranian nuclear program, the threat to both Israel and the world that Iran presents cannot be understated. This special report has been produced as a resource to use when discussing the Iran threat. It is currently unclear what actions, diplomatic or military, will eventually be used to stop the Iranian nuclear program. Nonetheless, everyone should be aware of the threat and Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons capability.

IRANIAN POLICY — NO MORE ISRAEL

Time and time again, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has stated that Israel should not exist. Moreover, he has done so with no significant domestic dissent. When the leader of a sovereign nation makes unequivocal statements without domestic opposition, those statements serve as the basis of national policy. It is critical to note that Ahmadinejad’s statements go beyond opposition to Israeli policies, he is speaking of Israel’s very existence.

IRAN’S POLICY — DEVELOPMENT OF LONG RANGE MISSILES

Years before the current controversy involving Iran’s attempts to develop nuclear power and (according to almost all experts) nuclear weapons, Iran invested heavily in the acquisition of long range missile systems. When coupled with nuclear warheads, these missiles would give Iran the ability to threaten countries far from its borders.

The Iranian Shahab 3 missile (domestically produced within Iran) can threaten either Tel Aviv or Riyadh from the same launch point. The newer Shahab 3ER, with its 2,000 km range, can reach Ankara in Turkey, Alexandria in Egypt, or Sanaa in Yemen from one single launch point deep within Iran. Thus, Iran does not have to move its launchers to project power, making its missile arsenal more survivable.

IRAN POLICY — DEVELOPMENT OF NUCLEAR POWER/WEAPONS

Iran’s efforts are clearly aimed at the production of nuclear weapons. Iran’s declarations that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes lacks any credibility. In August of 2004, former U.S. Representative to the United Nations John Bolton testified that:

Cover stories put forward by Iran for the development of a nuclear fuel cycle and for individual facilities are simply not credible. For example, Iran is making an enormous investment in facilities to mine, process, and enrich uranium, and says it needs to make its own reactor fuel because it cannot count on foreign supplies. But for at least the next decade Iran will have at most a single nuclear power reactor. In addition, Iran does not have enough indigenous uranium resources to fuel even one power-generating reactor over its lifetime — though it has quite enough uranium to make several nuclear bombs. We are being asked to believe that Iran is building uranium enrichment capacity to make fuel for reactors that do not exist from uranium Iran does not have.

THINKING THE UNTHINKABLE

While even the “smallest” nuclear attack anywhere is an unimaginable horror, because of its size and population, it would be almost impossible for the country of Israel to survive a single nuclear attack.
…………………………………………………………………………….

IRAN — A THREAT TO ISRAEL AND THE WORLD

The destruction of Israel is a stated goal of the government of Iran. In light of Iran’s relentless drive to acquire nuclear weapons, it is clear that action must be taken to avert the threat. Since ensuring survival is the prime obligation of a sovereign state towards its own citizens, diplomatic or other actions against Iran should be considered legitimate acts of self-defense and supported by the world community.

Do read the whole thing. I am afraid the current war in Iraq and Afghanistan will be in the future compared to the big one that’s coming like the American involvement in Nicaragua in the 1920s and 1930s can be compared to World War 2.
