Iran's Rouhani: "We Are Not Dismantling Our Nuclear Facilities; Iran Will Maintain Its Uranium Enrichment Programme"

Tyler Durden's picture





 

In case there was any confusion just how "historic" last week's agreement with Iran, loudly trumpeted by the Obama administration as the most "historic" since Syria in a, well, long time, truly was in terms of curbing Iran's nuclear ambitions, here is the explanation straight from the horse's mouth i.e., Iran president Hassan Rouhani who spoke today in an interview with the FT. "Mr Rouhani struck a tough line on Iran’s expectations over a comprehensive nuclear deal to be negotiated following last weekend’s landmark interim pact. “One hundred per cent [no],” he said when asked about dismantling nuclear facilities." So ixnay on the ismantleday. What about halting Uranium enrichment - that other pillar of Obama (and Hollande's of course) historic agreement? "[Rouhani] made clear that Tehran was determined to maintain a uranium enrichment programme for peaceful purposes." In other words, Iran will continue doing what it said it did before, only this time it will get billions of implicit subsidies as various embargoes are lifted.

As the FT notes, a US Senate aide said of the Iranian president’s remarks: "This is precisely the sort of comment that is going to make some people in Congress very nervous."

Of course, none of this is news to most who followed the theatrical spectacle that was the so-called Geneva deal, in which as confirmed, nothing actionable has been achieved except for the US to alienate its staunch allies Israel and Saudi Arabia further.

Actually, there was news: "Recalling his telephone conversation with President Barack Obama during Mr Rouhani’s recent visit to the UN in New York, he said: “I found him someone with very polite and smart language”. Well, if there is one thing one can say about the president, is that he sure has smart language.

Oh well, more work for the creators of Stuxnet ver 2.0

Indeed, slightly loosening a stranglehold is not equivalent to administering oxygen, and taking your foot off someone's neck is not the same as carrying them on your back.

...and returning a few billion in assets that were frozen/stolen in US banks is a "subsidy". 

Since 1979 those billions have been returned piecemeal but still not in their entirety.

Sounds kinda like the Fed's plan for foreign gold held here: "Sure, you can have it back, but it might take 7 years or so."

Might as well deposit your assets with Somali pirates. 

Any chance that DOJ will freeze druglord assets held in and laundered thru Citi and BoO etc.?  (A rhetorical question of course).  Makes it difficult to tell whether "John Wayne" is wearing a white hat, a black hat, or a grey hat.

Not a huge fan of Mr. Cohen, but this is (maybe more than) a touch of brilliance.

EVERYBODY KNOWS.

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes
Everybody knows
Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died

Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you've been faithful
Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows you've been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that it's now or never
Everybody knows that it's me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when you've done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old Black Joe's still pickin' cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the Plague is coming
Everybody knows that it's moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But there's gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
What everybody knows

And everybody knows that you're in trouble
Everybody knows what you've been through
From the bloody cross on top of Calvary
To the beach of Malibu
Everybody knows it's coming apart
Take one last look at this Sacred Heart
Before it blows
And everybody knows

Everybody knows

Everybody knows

Everybody know.

and after ISR assassinates the next Iranian nuclear scientist can we then sue them for 'tortious interference' in our agreement with Iran?  Gotta find a good jew lawyer first.  Should be no problem there as they all play both sides of every fence.  (and, no, "all" isn't hyperbole in the least)

btw can anyone name a single sanction against ISR? 

Murder Turkish citizens in international waters?  Get a pass on that one. 

Bomb a UN observation post during the war in Lebanon?  Pass. 

Accidentally drive an armored bulldozer over a young American girl who was wearing a fluorescent orange vest and shouting into a bullhorn?  "Oy, I didn't see her".  Tribunal:  "That's good enough for us.  Not guilty!  (Psst, here's your bonus for the week)"  World: "That sucks."  Average US citizen: "Rachel who?"

The Chinese are America's greatest threat to the internet (NSA) spying and America's endogenous human-resourse network with thousands working in our DOD and State Dept's, period!

Israel is a close second to China!!!

This parallels the 1940's and 50's Soviet spies which today is miniscule in proportion to the Chines and Israelites...

Important:   The NPT has no language explicitly or implicitly banning a signatory from enriching his/ their own indigenous LEU (3.5% - 5%) under the observance of the IAEA varifiable inspections (at a reasonable notice, any/all entities must comply, Period!!!).

Lastly, Rouhani must talk tough to appease the myriad of hardliners in Iran, as has been formalized by the P5+1 are totally aware of... knowing quite likely, that not only does SA & Israel want their demise but also the hardliners in the USSA still seeking more sanctions!

To any outside observer it is quite apparent that this tiny nation and its people all over the globe have a great deal of power which they exercise with great determination but with frighteningly little fairness and compassion.

They lived the horrors of concentration camps yet have now created the biggest concentration camp in the world in Palestinian territory.

Of course Iran would like to build a bomb but not for the purpose of attacking Israel but for the purpose of providing a disincentive to Israel from attacking.

Either way there will be trouble because there are fanatics on both sides hell bent on achieving their agenda.

Hey Tyler,

 

Israeli hasbara, eh?

 

Try using the internet to learn about the "nuclear program" of Iran, and just who has been not only crying wolf over it for years while building their own nukes {built in part via stolen American tech, possibly by Bibi Netanyahu}.  In fact, typing in "timeline crying wolf over iran nukes" will give you a good start.

 

There's many to choose from.  Maybe the pro-Israeli trolls swarming to interject their abject lies would be interested in this one:

To see it here is more than disappointing.  I can see this neoconservative/global zionist drek literally anywhere.

 

The fact that it appears at ZH tells me that ZH has been 'compromised' - certainly in terms of any sort of journalistic integrity. This is ill-informed, hypocritical, pro-Israeli propaganda.

 

And I don't think I need to read ZeroHedge anymore, since Life is a struggle to get to the truth beyond that very propaganda.

don't confuse issues ZH. That deal was very clear :

1° Immediate access for third party permanent control/inspection of facilities.

2° Total commitment by IRAN to ONE fundamental principle : yes to peaceful nuclear NO to military nuclear. That is in STONE.

3° Enrichening limited to max 5% for civil use (Electricity and medical quality). 

4° Destruction of all 20% type stock. Control to limited amounts of existing centrifuges.

5° Arak facility maintained but its heavy water program stopped except for civil usage. Permanent control of Arak installations to ensure NO enrichening beyond 5%.

So yes, enrichening and all nuclear for civil is the DEAL. In that Rohani is right. No dismantling but herd thinning of stock and centrifuges. Under strict outside control in 6 months span.

The claim that Iran will continue activities 'unchanged' is disingenuous. Iran is now going to limit enrichment activities to 5% enriched, and it is going to dilute and convert it's current 20% enriched stocks down to 5% or less. That's a level useful for nuclear power generation but useless for weapons. That's a significant change, and moves away from a weaponised stance to a fully peaceful energy stance.

It WAS an historic agreement, just not the kind of history most Americans were hoping for. The historic portion was that the US was now working with Iran to gain nuclear enrichment capability to build nuclear weapons. With this six month moratoriusm Iran will be able to rebulid enough capital to finish the job of 90% enrichment needed to fuel their mission of nuclear weaponizing their nation. Of course, the purpose of aiding Iran in this way instead of Obama plaining stating his intent was because of the importance to retain the American Jewish votes Democrats have harvested from an easy to deceive Jewish American population. Anyone doubt this need look no further than 2 years ago when President Obama himself recommending Israel return to the 1967 borders making that nation an impossible to defend 8 mile wide nation. This is all perfectly consistent with President Obama's pre-election designs for the middle east.

You raise a valid and compelling point. Unless one is fluent in a particular language (including all of its nuances, idiomatic expressions, figures of speech, etc) and has access to the entire untranslated body of words and their surrounding context, determining the accuracy of any translated statement would involve a substantial effort.

Like when we see subtitles we just blindly believe that is what they are actually saying.

Here's an analogous situation which I'm sure that many readers have experienced. A news source which you view/read/listen to on a regular basis and which you consider reasonably accurate does a report on a topic, incident, or issue that you are intimately familiar with or have studied extensively. Because of your detailed background knowledge, you correctly assess that the news report is full of misunderstandings and mistruths and at best is only tangentially accurate. You are left wondering how this news source, which on other matters seems fairly credible, could have failed so miserably on this particular topic.

What if it is sort of accurate, but the translation is slanted in a different way?  "Journalistic liberties" or something like that.

The two articles below, contextually relevant to this ZH article despite being written nearly seven years ago, provide a detailed and objective analysis of the problems resulting from inaccurate and/or intentionally slanted translations and the responses such translations can generate.
