Iranian President Reopens Nuclear Plant: "We Will Bring The US To Its Knees"

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

Iranian president Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday: “We will bring the US to its knees in this battle of wills.” The Iranian government is continuing to warn of harsh retaliation against the United States after the Trump administration pulled out of the 2015 nuclear agreement.

According to PressTV, the threat comes as Washington continues to attempt to bully its allies into halting imports of Iranian oil after Donald Trump unilaterally quit the cornerstone international nuclear agreement instituted by his predecessor, Barack Obama.  Iran has previously said there would be consequences should the US decide to withdraw from the agreement.

The United States, meanwhile, has continued to push Iran. After withdrawing from the 2015 Iran nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), in May the US vowed to reinforce economic pressure and sanctions against Tehran, reported RT.  While the European capitals have so far refused to leave the cornerstone security accord, on Tuesday the State Department threatened private companies with sanctions unless they completely cut Iranian crude oil imports by November.

Rouhani also seeks to unify all Iranians. 

We will take problems. We will take pressure. But we will not sacrifice our independence, Rouhani vowed. “Even in the worst case, I promise that the basic needs of Iranians will be provided, the Jerusalem Post quoted Rouhani saying live on national television. 

Rouhani additionally noted that his administration will continue to defend Iran’s interests and focus on strengthening the economy. 

“We have enough foreign currency to inject into the market.”

The seventh president of Iran also ruled out any possibility that Washington could succeed in isolating his country. But the United States has been left isolated, as even its close allies, including France, the UK, and Germany, are working against the county’s government to prevent the nuclear agreement from crumbling. Even the State Department had to acknowledge that cutting off Iranian oil imports completely is a challenge” that no country wants to do voluntarily.

Iran has also opened a uranium feedstock plant in the absence of the nuclear agreement. The nuclear plant that remained closed for nine years has now reopened Iran’s atomic energy agency (AEOI) said on Wednesday.  Tehran prepares to increase uranium enrichment capacity if a nuclear deal with world powers falls apart, reported Reuters. Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ordered the AEOI to start the necessary preparations to upgrade the country’s enrichment capacity in case the European efforts at a world deal fail.

The UF6 factory is part of the Isfahan uranium conversion facility, according to AEOI’s statement on its website.  The AEOI said on Wednesday that in response to Khamenei’s order and Trump’s renunciation of the deal, a plant for the production of UF6, the feedstock for centrifuge machines that enrich uranium, had been relaunched and a barrel of yellow cake has been delivered there.

That's interesting.  Iran was trying to convince the rest of the world to honor the deal, thereby negating the impact of the US walking away from it.  If Iran is now starting up the Nuke plants, Iran itself is no longer honoring the deal, and so they have apparently given up on that strategy.

I feel like this is foolish.  They are doing exactly what the neocons wanted.

Things are only bad elsewhere and if things go south in Iran, it is because the CIA did it exclusively. There is not even 1 Iranian citizen who is displeased :-)

Back to reality. It's looking like Israel is gonna send a few missiles up this guy's ass pretty soon. I'm more interested in seeing the responses to that, if it happens. Let's see if Russia makes a move. I say they won't but let's see.......

LOL. Better to buy into the program espoused by the guy in the big black turban and the long white beard, because THOSE kind of guys are lots of fun for EVERYONE.

Fuck Iran and their Russian masters. They can roll around enjoying man-boy love while the US cuts off their funding, Mabe the Iranian people ought to ask themselves WHY they permit a bunch of extremist assholes to run their country into the ground, when all they have to do to enjoy the prosperity God has offered them is to live in peace with their neighbors. Wake up and realize Israel is no threat to you, the Palestinians have been offered their own state a dozen times and refused any reasonable solution, and YOU are paying the price.

Watch all the troll idiots blame everything on the Joos or the USA, but all you have to do is act like civilized, decent people, and all your troubles end in an instant. Tell the raghead despots to fuck off, take your country back, and let Persia once again be the flower of the Middle East.

What dreamy world are you in right now? Iran doesn't respect anything or anyone or any nation. Never has (since the goat fuckin' muslims took over) for a very long time. 

The entire region is full of low-intellect, low-IQ, questionably human sub-species. Get the fuck out of here with your attempts at rationality.

You think Hassan Rouhani has a rational bone in his body? He's a mouthpiece for a collection of mullahs who want to die. 

The Persians hide in a corner because they have zero ability to fight back. Hell, they cannot even move out of the hellhole.

Stop making excuses for Iran. It's like trying to make excuses for that piece of shit Erdogan in Turkey.

Fuck Turkey and Fuck Iran.

I am conflicted here.  I hate muslims (and jews) as much as the next guy, don't get me wrong.   But I also hate how the neocons keeps stirring up shit over there and are trying desperately to start a war with Iran and/or Syria.  So all I can do is comment that this was a tactical mistake by Iran.

I suspect you're an Israel lover, and so you're on the "stir the pot" team, regarding Iran.  Gotta tell you dude, not loving the manipulation.  Go bomb them yourselves and leave us the fuck out of it.

“Iranian President Reopens Nuclear Plant: "We Will Bring The US To Its Knees"”

 

What a deceptive headline.  Expect from CNN, not ZH.

 

Tehran prepares to increase uranium enrichment capacity if a nuclear deal with world powers falls apart...

 

so, they still have not resumed enrichment but are signaling that if, despite complying with the terms of the deal, they keep getting direct and indirect sanctions by a Zionist/Jew-controlled US government, there is not reason for them to give up what is otherwise their legal sovereign right to do.

 

Notably absent -  that plant never enriched to weapons grade.  Ever.   Nor have the Iranians threatened to enrich to weapons grade.

Iran realizes that now the US has broken the deal it cant trade with other  EU countries independently as the US will blackball any company that deals with them. However I agree, this is just giving the US military the excuse they need to start bombing, first any military targets, then civilian infrastructure, power, water etc and finally the civilian population itself, its tough bringing freedom to a country but somebody has to do it.
