White House admits Iran ‘few weeks or less’ from nuclear breakout; quickly blame Trump

Iran nuclear weapons program

Naturally, the Biden Administration quickly attempted to blame former President Trump for Iran’s most recent nuclear development. It’s not surprising the White House made a desperate attempt to deflect, as Press Secretary Jen Psaki was forced to admit Iran’s “breakout period” for a nuclear weapon “is down from about a year…to just a few weeks or less.”

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken confirmed Iran’s “breakout” time was “down to a matter of weeks.” The Times of Israel notes that the breakout period refers to the amount of time “it will take Iran to amass enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon, if its chooses to do so.”

The Times of Israel notes that a distinction must be made: “having enough nuclear material for a bomb is not he same as having the capabilities to build the core of the weapon and to attach it to the warhead of a missile, which would likely take more time.”

Psaki told reporters at Tuesday’s press conference that Iran’s nuclear development “definitely worries us.”

“If we go back, under the Iran nuclear deal, Iran’s nuclear program was tightly constrained,” she said. “Since the Trump administration ceased US participation in the deal, Iran has rapidly accelerated its nuclear program.”

“That is a direct impact of pulling out of the nuclear deal, making us less safe, giving us less visibility, and it’s one of the reasons we pursued a diplomatic path again,” Psaki said.

Psaki’s comments are laughable, considering Iran has never given any proof of abiding by any deal. The 2015 nuclear deal gave Iran sanctions relief in exchange for guarantees it would not develop a nuclear weapon.

As the Times of Israel writes, curbing its nuclear weapons development is something Iran “has always denied wanting to do.” In 2018, knowing full well that Iran had zero intention of abiding by the deal, President Trump unilaterally withdrew from the accord and reimposed sanctions against Iran.

Ever since Biden took office, one of the first things his administration did was begin negotiations with Iran via intermediaries in Vienna. The talks have gone nowhere.

    Unfortunately when Iran gets their bomb(s) their first target will be Israel, not DC. I would much rather them create a small, mobile device, walk it across the unprotected Southern border and plant it right at the White House steps while dr. jill and brandon are in residence.

    The Brandon Administration twerps wanted to pay Iran to develop more centrifuges. The Iranians probably took out a loan against that promise, accelerating the program. Of course, the big payday came from Barack Hussein (Barry Soetoro) Obama himself; IN CASH!

    Biden, obama, and almost all of the marxist dems have no gonads at all. The punks have never taken responsibility for any of their actions, and their total lack of character is shown daily. They always seek to blame others because they were summers eve garglers from grammar school, and haven’t changed since.

Biden administration marches blindly to disastrous Iran deal

Iran nuclear weapons program

The Biden administration is marching blindly to a nuclear deal with Iran, with some experts believing that a deal is imminent. There are several reasons why such a deal would likely be a disaster.

The Deal will Not Stop Iran from Getting A Bomb

While the White House’s stated goal is preventing Iran from ever acquiring a nuclear weapon, Robert Malley, the US Special Envoy to Iran, acknowledges that the Iran deal will allow Iran to get a nuclear bomb by 2031. Malley’s assessment is echoed by both Israel’s Defense Minister Benny Gantz, and a letter from over 5,000 senior Israeli military officials to President Biden. So, what is the point of the deal if Iran can still get a bomb?

Statements from Iran itself should make it clear that Iran has malicious intent. An adviser to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei recently admitted that Iran has the “technical capability” to make a nuclear bomb, which is the opposite to Iran’s long-held posture that its nuclear ambitions are for peaceful purposes only. And a video posted in two telegram channels linked to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps stated that Iran’s ballistic missiles can turn “New York into hellish ruins.” So, why should we believe that this deal will bring peace with Iran?

The Deal Would Further Erode Nuclear Nonproliferation

A nuclear Iran would result in “Egypt, Saudi Arabia and other Sunni states” to seek nuclear capabilities to counter Iran, according to the Israeli letter. And this is a valid concern. In 2020 there were reports that China may be building a nuclear processing facility in Saudi Arabia to assist the latter in producing yellowcake.

Saudi Arabia has invested heavily in Pakistan’s nuclear program, and can order nuclear weapons from that country if it so chooses, according to a BBC article from 2013.  The article sites Amos Yadlin, who is a former head of IDF Military Intelligence, as stating that in response to Iran becoming a nuclear power, “the Saudis will not wait one month. They already paid for the bomb, they will go to Pakistan and bring what they need to bring.” And South Korea and Russia have just signed a $2.25 billion deal to construct a nuclear power plant for Egypt. The UAE’s first nuclear power plant has been hooked up to its electric grid since 2020. Iran has threatened the UAE multiple times, and funds attacks on the UAE through Iran’s proxies. It seems that Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the UAE would seek to develop nuclear weapons if Iran does so.

The Deal Would Unfreeze Funds that Will be Used for Terror

The Iran deal will unfreeze funds that Iran will then use to finance terrorism all over the world, according to the Israeli letter. A letter from House Republicans and Democrats to President Biden estimates the total value of such sanctions relief to be $1 trillion over 10 years, and similarly estimates that these funds will allow Iran to “be an enormous danger to Americans at home and abroad, and to our allies.”

The Deal Creates a Windfall to Russia

 And lastly, Russia will get a windfall in this deal, according to the House letter. Under the deal, Russia will be able to enrich Iran’s uranium. Russia will also be the judge of Iran’s compliance with the deal, and the US and Europe would not have such a right. Further, Russia will get at least $10 billion (presumably from Iran) to build Iran’s nuclear infrastructure.

The nuclear deal with Iran as currently imagined will result in a huge foreign policy loss for the United States. The deal will not stop Iran from getting a bomb, would erode nuclear containment in the region, would give significant funds to Iran to in turn finance terror worldwide, and would greatly advantage Russia. But despite these glaring flaws, the Biden administration continues to pursue this disastrous deal.
