Iranian scientists – with Russian help – have set up two sites to use laser technology to enrich uranium for the regime’s nuclear bomb program, according to a source in the Revolutionary Guards intelligence unit.
The Russians had argued that due to IAEA monitoring and Western countries’ lurking satellites, it would be wise to use lasers to enrich uranium as, the source added, it is 16 times more productive, requires less [...]

Barack Obama now has this on his resume. Because of his anti Israel policies, he sat by and did nothing to stop Iran from successfully building nuclear weapons. They now have built the first of what will become hundreds of these weapons. Inevitably, they will be used on America and Americans around the world. Here are the details, complete with photos:

North Korea’s recent rocket launch shows it has the ability to fire a rocket more than 10,000km (6,200 miles), South Korean officials say.
The estimate, which would potentially put the Western US in range, was based on an analysis of rocket debris.
However, there was no confirmation that the North had the re-entry technology needed to deliver a missile.
Experts believe North Korea is also years away from gaining the [...]
The story received very little attention in the media, and a lot of us who follow science and technology research missed it – we now have a working electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) missile that will be used as an offensive or defensive weapon by the military. The project test was announced on September 22, 2012, and codenamed, the ‘Counter-Electronics High Power Advanced Missile Project’, or simply ‘CHAMP’. This is the first [...]
Sources confirm facilities ‘actively engaged in weaponization’
According to a source within the engineering department of the Revolutionary Guards, the regime is working on its nuclear bomb program from several secret sites unknown to the world.
One such site, the source said, is in the outskirts of the small city of Shahrokhabad in Kerman Province.
Kerman, known for its deposits of copper and coal, also has uranium ore deposits, the source said, and [...]

An electromagnetic pulse attack — the ‘other’ Iranian nuclear threat
Some experts say Tehran may be preparing for an EMP strike — which could ‘fry’ electrical grids, with devastating consequences
By David Shamah October 14, 2012, 7:31 pm
While political scientists and world leaders have debated the likelihood of those two possibilities, there is a third plausible scenario: The use of a nuclear weapon by Iran to carry out an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) [...]
VIENNA (AP) — Iran now could produce enough weapons-grade uranium to arm a nuclear bomb within two to four months but would still face serious “engineering challenges” – and much longer delays – before it would be able to use the material in an atomic warhead, a respected U.S. think tank said Monday….
The sabotage of the Fordo uranium enrichment facility’s power lines on Aug. 17 gave Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu extra leeway to move his original red line for Iran from late September 2012 – now – to the spring or early summer of 2013.
The disruption of the underground enrichment plant’s power supply caused several of the advanced IR-1 and IR-4 centrifuges producing the 20-percent grade uranium to burst into flames.
Will Israel Blow Up Something and Falsely Blame It On Iran?
According to U.S. officials, Israel is training and supporting Iranian terrorists who are trying to topple the Iranian government. Those Israeli-funded terrorists have faked documents to falsely indicate that Iran is building a nuclear bomb. 1

For example, Israel admits that an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including [...]
Despite Washington clearly not favoring military confrontation with Iran – Israel isn’t ruling it out. Major drills simulating missile strikes in case of a war with the Islamic State have been held in Tel Aviv. And these emergency exercises are not the only way Israelis are being prepared for an attack, as RT’s Middle East correspondent Paula Slier explains.

NEW INTELLIGENCE ON IRAN NUKE WORK
VIENNA (AP) — Diplomats say the U.N. atomic agency has new intelligence that Iran has advanced its work on calculating the destructive power of a nuclear warhead, a STEP toward building such a weapon.
The diplomats say the information – from the U.S., Israel and at least one other country – alleges the research was done within the past three years.

President Obama’s former special envoy to the Middle East has said more pressure should be put on Iran to stop it taking the next steps towards making nuclear weapons.
In his first British interview since stepping down, Dennis Ross explained the challenges facing diplomacy in the region.
If Iran gets a nuclear bomb, he said, it will lead to a nuclear arms race with Turkey and Saudi Arabia, which will “dramatically increase [...]
NKorea is threatening to get out of all treaties…
U.S. magazine, Foreign Policy, says North Korean officials told U.S. officials during a private meeting in Singapore last month that Pyongyang is no longer interested in an agreement reached earlier on February 29th.
Under the agreement, the communist state agreed to a moratorium on nuclear tests, long-range missile launches and its uranium enrichment program.
North Korea is technically capable of conducting a nuclear test in as little as two weeks, according to a study published by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.
The scientists also raise the possibility that North Korea would conduct two detonations simultaneously, with one bomb made from plutonium, as in previous tests, and the other made from highly enriched uranium.
“Two detonations will yield much more technical information than one, and they [...]
