War Threat Against Iran Increases as London's Puppets Hype Iran's "Nuclear Threat"
February 23, 2013 • 9:22AM

With less than a week to go before the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council + Germany) meet with Iran in Kazakstan to discuss Tehran's nuclear program, a slew of attacks has been unleashed suggesting that Iran is speeding up its nuclear power program. Now that the terrorist-led regime-change policy in Syria has virtually run aground, a fresh effort is being launched by the London-inspired Saudi, Qatari, Israeli, and Western circles to point to the threat allegedly posed by Iran.

As an opener, in a confidential report, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said 180 so-called IR-2m centrifuges and empty centrifuge casings had been hooked up at the plant near the central town of Natanz. That confidential report was immediately seized upon by both Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and the U.S. State Department. On Feb. 22, Reuters reported Netanyahu saying that Iran is closer today than ever before to obtaining the necessary enriched uranium for a nuclear bomb. He termed the IAEA confidential report "very grave," and said it proved that Iran is moving swiftly toward the red line he set out at the UN in September. He had said during that address that Iran must be stopped before it crosses that line, something he said at the time could happen as early as the spring.

In Washington, on the same day, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the installation "would be a further escalation and a continuing violation of Iran's obligations under the relevant UN Security Council resolutions and IAEA board resolutions." "So," she said, "it would mark yet another provocative step."

The IAEA confidential report also pointed out that Iran has almost completed installation of cooling and moderator-circuit piping in the heavy water plant near the town of Arak in Iran. Western nuclear analysts say this type of reactor could yield plutonium for nuclear arms if the spent fuel is reprocessed — never mind the fact that the IAEA is tracing and accounting for every gram in realtime. "The Arak facility is a growing source of concern," said Mark Fitzpatrick, director of the non-proliferation and disarmament program of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), a London-based think-tank.
