SECRET IRAN NUCLEAR-BOMB PLANT EXPANDING

Work surrounding Iran’s latest secret nuclear site continues unabated, new satellite images from DigitalGlobe show. The existence of the site was first revealed by WND on Oct. 8.

The site – Velayat 1 – which is in the province of Isfahan on the outskirts of the small city of Najafabad, was built for research and development and has a capacity of 800 centrifuges for uranium enrichment. It already has successfully tested a neutron detonator and implosion system for a nuclear bomb.

According to the source for that exclusive WND report, research at the site includes design of a nuclear warhead for the Iranian Shahab-3 ballistic missile, which is now almost complete. The source added that there is also a nuclear reactor at the site along with a separation plant as another path to acquire a nuclear bomb.

To avoid suspicion, the site was built below a medicine factory called Abu Reyhan. The facility beneath the factory has three levels, with two underground entrances away from the facility.

This is where the father of Iran’s nuclear program, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh-Mahabadi, assisted by 10 other scientists, is working on Iran’s nuclear bomb program, within the SEPAND project (known by the IAEA as SPND) and under the AMAD (weapons program) to build atomic warheads.

The new images of the above-ground facility show that main buildings have been completed.

This is an image by Google Earth that dates to early 2000:

This is a new image by DigitalGlobe of the main installation:

The new images also clearly show trees planted around the site, a routine measure by the Islamic regime to hide the facility, according to a specialist on proliferation of atomic weapons who is familiar with Iran’s nuclear program. The trees camouflage barbed wires surrounding the site.


Site overview



In parts of this vast site, earth has been covered, similar to what took place at the Natanz nuclear facility, a sign of underground building.

Other images show signs of digging and holes in the skirt of the nearby mountain which could corroborate the information about tunnels and passages underground.


Holes in the hillside

According to a source who has been in the underground facility, military trucks covered with tarps for disguise have transferred equipment with “radiation warning” signs to the facility and that an entrance on the side of the so-called medicine factory leads to the underground facility.

Another entrance to the underground facility, according to the source, is far to the north of the “medicine factory.” Large equipment has been observed being transferred through that entrance, which is almost a third of the actual size of the factory itself.


Entrance 2

Pictures taken by the source from within the underground facility show a hazard sign for poisonous material. One image shows some kind of measuring device, though there is no confirmation what its purpose is.


Warning


Device

Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, an advisory board to Congress, has experience analyzing imagery of underground facilities from his service at the CIA.

“It is difficult to ascertain the purpose of any underground facility just from imagery,” he cautioned. “We have been studying the Russian deep underground complex at Yamantau Mountain, which is the size of a small city, for years, and it is still a mystery. However, these photos of the facility in Iran have all the earmarks of an elaborate attempt to conceal an underground complex of significant size and strategic purpose by hiding it under a legitimate factory, concealing the original excavations, and elaborate and costly landscaping to screen everything from public view.

“Because an Iranian source of proven reliability claims this is a previously unknown nuclear facility, the allegation should be taken very seriously and regarded as credible,” Fry said. “Iran has a long history of successfully concealing its nuclear weapons program and nuclear facilities. What we know about is probably only the tip of the iceberg. Iran’s nuclear weapons program may well be larger, more sophisticated and more advanced than is generally suspected.”


Security post

The site operates under the control of the Revolutionary Guards to expand research and development of nuclear, plutonium and atomic warheads. Its activities include:

Enriching uranium to weapons grade.

Testing a neutron detonator and implosion system (chemical explosive lens). As a result of research at this facility, a test was done at Iran’s Parchin military site several months ago. After the revelation of the high-explosives experiment activity, Iran started to clean up the site but continues to stonewall on the IAEA’s request to inspect the Parchin site.
Designing and building a nuclear warhead to arm Iran’s Shahab-3 ballistic missile.

Separating plutonium for a plutonium implosion-type fission bomb. Iran’s heavy-water reactor near the city of Arak is nearing completion and is capable of providing spent fuel that, once processed, could produce plutonium for nuclear bombs. The separation of plutonium from fuel is an easy process requiring dual-use off-the-shelf equipment that Iran has already purchased.

The source indicated that Fakhrizadeh-Mahabadi’s atomic warhead project seeks to build three nuclear warheads in its initial phase and that tests of the implosion system and neutron generator have been successful and the design of the nuclear warhead is nearly complete.

Turkish PM in talks with Hamas to visit Gaza



Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters Friday he hopes to become the latest head of state to visit the Gaza Strip.

Erdogan said talks with Hamas, which controls the Strip, were underway to arrange a date for him to visit, Turkish daily Today’s Zaman reported.

Last month, Qatar’s emir became the first head of state to visit the territory since Hamas took power in 2007. Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, who has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Gazan causes, was feted with parades, songs and speeches during his stay.

The trip was seen a boost to the legitimacy of Hamas, a terror organization which has ruled Gaza since taking it by force from the secular Fatah movement.

Erdogan had been planning to make a visit in September but canceled at the last minute for unknown reasons.

Turkey was once considered Israel’s closest regional ally, but has all but severed ties since 2010, when nine Turkish activists aboard a boat trying to break the Israeli blockade on Gaza were killed by IDF commandos.

The Turkish premier, speaking to reporters on a plane en route from Berlin to Ankara, chided his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu for sending “weird envoys” in a bid to smooth things over.

He did not elaborate on the characterization, but said the diplomats were told Turkey’s demands that Israel must apologize for the deaths, pay compensation and lift the Gaza blockade before Turkey will renormalize ties.

Erdogan said German Chancellor Angela Merkel had urged him to restore relations with israel during the visit.

“It is impossible that our relations will be mended unless these demands are realized,” Erdo─čan said he told Merkel.

US warns Israel not to strike Iran

Pentagon has warned their Israeli counterparts that a strike against Iran will harm US interests in the Gulf.


USS Carter Hall and the guided-missile destroyer USS Roosevelt transit the Suez Canal, Egypt, Sept. 22, 2008.

According to the UK daily The Guardian, US military commanders have warned their Israeli counterparts that any action against Iran would severely limit the ability of American forces in the region.

Israel have been told that an Israel strike will severely limit the US ability to mount their own operations against the Iranian nuclear programme by cutting off vital logistical support from Gulf Arab allies.



Chief of staff Dempsey are in Israel to tell Ehud Barack that an attack on Iran is unwanted.

US naval, air and ground forces are dependent for bases, refuelling and supplies on Gulf Arab rulers who are deeply concerned about the progress Iran has made in its nuclear programme.

But also about the rising challenge to their regimes posed by the Arab spring and the galvanising impact on popular unrest of an Israeli attack on Iran.

The US Fifth Fleet is headquartered in Bahrain and the US air force has major bases in Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Oman.

Senior US officers believe the one case in which they could not rely fully on those bases for military operations against Iranian installations would be if Israel acted first.

My comment:

I have earlier warned that the US will not give Israel the green light to attack the nuclear facilities of Iran.

Such an attack is not apart of the strategic interest of the Obama Administration.

The US 5th fleet in not placed in the Persian Gulf to promote freedom and democracy. Not at all to bring justice to the Iranian people. The US Naval forces are in Bahrein to secure the US supplies of crude oil and gasoline.

An Israeli strike against Iran will severely harm the US interests in the region. Iran might block any export of cruse oil out of the Persian Gulf.

I will not be surprised if the admirals in the 5th Fleet have been given secret orders from Obama, to shoot down any “foreign fighter” entering the no-fly-zone protected by the US. And this order surely include Israeli bomber and fighter jets.

Since US officially is the last and final ally of Israel, the betrayal of Washington is hard to face for the IDF and the inner cabinet in Jerusalem. We are simply not told the truth, because it is too painful.

Hitler laughed when England the the US refused to bail the Jews out of Fascist Europe from 1937 to 1939.

Today, the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad plays the role of Adolf Hitler. With the same silent support of London and Washington.

Jesus the Messiah will judge their evil and betrayal of the Jewish people.

Obama “the best gun salesmen we’ve had”

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
November 2, 2012

Fears that Barack Obama would use a lame duck second term to eviscerate gun rights are fueling record firearms sales once again, with gun store owners labeling Obama, “the best gun salesmen we’ve had.”

Despite a new law allowing carrying without a permit, concealed-firearm permits in the fiercely independent state of Wyoming in the last quarter have smashed records set in previous years.

“People are definitely scared of a president who has voted when he was a senator against guns,” Anthony Bouchard, director of the Wyoming Gun Owners Association in Cheyenne told the Wyoming Star Tribune. “[If Obama gets re-elected] he’s in a lame-duck session and he can do the things he wants to do. That’s what we’re afraid of.”

Irvin Walker, owner of Triggers Gun Shop in Mills, called Obama, “the best gun salesmen we’ve had,” and said he was expecting another wave of customers after November 6 if Obama defeats Mitt Romney, despite the fact that sales are already riding high.

Gun and ammunition prices are expected to soar should Obama secure a second term, with rifles predicted to double in cost just as they did in the aftermath of Obama’s 2008 victory.

Despite prolonged economic turmoil, gun sales have bucked the trend, with both Ruger and Smith & Wesson operating at maximum capacity and struggling to keep up with demand.

With Ruger’s sales up 86 percent since Obama took office, the company’s previous quarter sales demolished all expectations, with sales totaling $118 million dollars.

“Americans like their guns, and according to the latest quarterly revenues from Sturm, Ruger & Co., that isn’t going to change anytime soon. In fact, over the last five years we’ve seen a massive increase in gun buying. So much so that Ruger was forced to suspend new firearms orders earlier this year because they simply could not keep up with demand,” writes Mac Slavo.

“The single largest determining factor as to why gun sales have surged since early 2008 seems to be a collective fear surrounding the election of a big government anti-gun socialist as the final arbiter and protector of the U.S. Constitution.”

Slavo highlights the graphs below which depict how soaring gun sales are closely related with the election season.





Gun sales are also partly driven by the hunting season, but political and social upheavals undoubtedly play a huge role in the rush to purchase firearms. Sales have been riding high ever since Obama took office, including a significant rise in first time gun owners. The number of federally licensed retail gun dealers in the U.S. has also risen for the first time since 1993.

In the aftermath of this summer’s ‘Batman massacre’, gun sales in some areas of the country spiked by almost 50 per cent.

Last December’s Black Friday sales marked an all-time one-day high for background check requests from gun buyers. It will be interesting to see whether that record is beaten again this year if Obama secures a second term.

Although neither candidate has made gun control an issue on the campaign trail, second amendment activists have every right to be concerned about the potential for a lame duck Obama administration to eviscerate gun rights.

Many commentators assert that the supposedly “botched” Fast and Furious scandal, wherein guns purchased in the United States were sent to Mexican drug lords, was a deliberate conspiracy to undermine the second amendment.

Just a month before the scandal broke last year, President Obama told gun control advocate Sarah Brady that his administration was working “under the radar” to sneak attack the second amendment rights of American citizens.

During a March 30, 2011 meeting between Jim and Sarah Brady and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, at which Obama “dropped in,” the president reportedly told Brady, “I just want you to know that we are working on it (gun control)….We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

Fear of riots and mass civil unrest has also been frequently cited as a reason for more Americans stockpiling guns, a concern given further legitimacy in light of the fallout from Hurricane Sandy, which has been characterized by anger caused by fuel shortages as well as widespread looting in some areas.

Threats by Obama supporters to riot and stoke racial violence if Romney wins have also prompted some to re-assess their home security preparations.

Whether a closely fought and possibly disputed election could lead to chaos as some have predicted remains to be seen. However, it’s almost a certainty that gun enthusiasts will rush to purchase more firearms in the event of an Obama victory.

The Future of Marriage Will be at Stake Next Week


The most important issue for conservatives on election night, aside for the individual elections, will be the question of gay marriage. Maryland, Minnesota, Maine, and Washington – all blue states – will be holding ballot referendums on gay marriage. In three of those states, we will be playing defense. If the ballot question passes, gay marriage will be recognized in those states. In Minnesota, we will be playing offense by proposing a state constitutional ban on gay marriage.

Over the past decade, we have won 32 times – a 100% success rate whenever the issue was placed before the people. However, after 6 years of indefatigable campaigning from the homosexual lobby and criminal insouciance from our side, we face an uphill battle in preserving marriage. It’s especially rough that the landscape this year includes blue to very blue states.

Nonetheless, the polls are tightening up, and if past history is any indication, we always overperform the polls on this issue. If you have any friends or relatives in these states, please advise them of the following information:

- Maryland: The state passed gay marriage last year, but a successful petition drive has placed it as a referendum on the ballot. It’s called Question 6. We want a no vote. A yes vote would uphold the gay marriage law.

- Washington: Same story as Maryland. The state legislature and governor signed a gay marriage law that is now before the voters as Referendum 74. We want a no vote.

- Minnesota: Vote Yes on Amendment 1. This is a constitutional amendment - “Recognition of Marriage Solely Between One Man and One Woman.”

- Maine: Question 1 seeks to upend a 2009 ballot initiative that banned same-sex marriage – Do you want to allow the State of Maine to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples? We want a no vote.

The important thing is that gay marriage has never passed muster with voters. The few states that passed gay marriage did so at the behest of the courts or the politicians. Once they win with the voters once, they will begin rolling back many of the state constitutional amendments we passed during last decade.

Conservatives must realize what we are up against. There is a strong and vocal minority of people in this country that are in a race to the bottom to radically alter the fabric of our nation to reflect that of the most decedent society conceivable. If we don’t combat them now, all the other issues will be irrelevant. There is no way we can have a society that is demanding anything and everything that is sordid, yet one that is austere and conservative regarding dependency, welfare, and entitlements. Fiscal conservatism and family values are indissoluble.

We can always recover from fiscal depression. We will never recover from moral bankruptcy.

Gasoline shortages in northeast U.S. highlights how quickly modern societies will unravel following disasters



Widespread gas shortages stirred fears among residents and disrupted some rescue and emergency services on Thursday as the New York region struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy after being ravaged by Hurricane Sandy. Tiny increments of progress — some subway and bus lines were back in service — were overshadowed by new estimates of the storm’s financial cost, struggles to restore power, and by the discovery of more bodies in flooded communities. The lines of cars waiting for gas at a Sunoco here ran in three directions: a mile-long line up the Garden State Parkway, a half-mile line along Vauxhall Road, and another, including a fleet of mail trucks that needed to refuel before resuming their rounds, snaking through a back entrance. The scene was being replayed across the state as drivers waited in lines that ran hundreds of vehicles deep, requiring state troopers and local police to protect against exploding tempers. “I’ve been pumping gas for 36 hours, I pumped 1,500 gallons,” said Abhishek Soni, the owner of an Exxon in Montclair, where disputes on the line Wednesday night had become so heated that Mr. Soni called the police and turned off the pumps for 45 minutes to restore calm. “My nose, my mouth is bleeding from the fumes. The fighting just makes it worse.” Four days after Hurricane Sandy, the effort to secure enough gas for the region moved to the forefront of recovery work. The problems affected even New York City, where the Taxi Commission warned that the suddenly indispensable fleet of yellow cabs would thin significantly Friday because of the fuel shortage. City officials said they had reached an agreement with a major supplier Thursday night that would ensure emergency operations — fire, police, sanitation and work by the parks department to clean up downed trees — would continue uninterrupted. Though Thursday marked a return to routine for many who ride the subway to work or celebrated the resumption of power, the scenes of long lines, fistfights at gas stations and siphoning at parking lots highlighted the difficult, uneven slog to recovery. The losses from the storm will approach $50 billion, according to an early estimate from economists at Moody’s Analytics — about $30 billion in property damage, the rest in lost economic activity like meals and canceled flights. At the same time the death toll in New York City rose to 38, as rescuers continued to discover bodies while combing through coastal wreckage. Among them were the bodies of two boys, 2 and 4, who had been torn from their mother by raging floodwaters on Staten Island on Monday night. The lack of power continued to bedevil efforts to address the damage. About 43 percent of customers in New Jersey and about 16 percent in New York State remained without electricity, and Officials said that they expected power to be restored to all of Manhattan by Saturday. Those issues were only aggravated by the increasingly short supply of gas, particularly given that many suburban residents in New Jersey and elsewhere were heading to the stations to fuel generators, which provided the lone source of power and heat to homes across the region. According to figures from AAA, roughly 60 percent of stations in New Jersey and 70 percent of stations on Long Island were closed. At stations that were open, nerves frayed. Fights broke out at the block-long Hess station on 10th Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, forcing the Police Department to send three officers to keep the peace, a police official said. The ports and refineries that supply much of the region’s gas had been shut down in advance of the storm and were damaged by it. That disrupted deliveries to gas stations that had power to pump it. But the bigger problem was that many stations and storage facilities remained without power. –NY Times

Another storm to hit...this time New England



As steps toward recovery slowly progress in the wake of Sandy, another storm may soon be hitting the East Coast in time for Election Day.

The National Weather Service’s Prediction Center issued a warning for a possible nor’easter, which may hit the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions as early as next Tuesday.

While the storm is not anticipated to be as destructive as Sandy, the prediction center anticipated the storm will “cause light to moderate precipitation around that region of the country” and “produce impacts much less extreme.”

The Washington Post reports that the European Centre Medium Range Forecast (EURO) model, which tracked Sandy over a week before it hit, shows a simulation of the storm that will bring moderate rains and gusty winds in many of the same areas ravaged by the superstorm.

The impending storm may possibly delay the recuperation efforts of both New York and New Jersey.

Russia warns West over involvement in Syrian opposition


A senior Russian diplomat on Friday warned the West against trying to predetermine a future leadership of Syria.
Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said on Twitter that such attempts would contradict the peace plan for Syria approved by world powers in Geneva in June.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday that the administration would push for a shakeup in the Syria opposition leadership so that it better represents fighters on the frontline. Washington believes that a revamped rebel leadership could rally wider international support and prevent extremists from hijacking the rebellion.

"Attempts by Western sponsors of the Syrian opposition to enforce a list of he nation's future leadership from the outside contradict the Geneva agreements," Gatilov said. "The Geneva communique says that a transitional governing body should be formed on the basis of mutual accord of the government and the opposition."

Russia has been the main supporter of Syrian President Bashar Assad's government, shielding it from UN sanctions over a crackdown on the 19-month uprising, in which at least 36,000 people have been killed, according to opposition activists.

Earlier this week, Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov reaffirmed Moscow's rejection of calls for Assad's ouster, saying that it would only exacerbate the conflict. He said that he and other Russian diplomats have urged Syrian opposition groups to name their representatives for talks with the government.

Russia in the past has hosted various members of the Syrian opposition and has not voiced a preference.

Iranians burn US flags to mark embassy seizure



The demonstrators also chanted anti-British and anti-Israeli slogans, and burnt Israeli flags, as they gathered in front of the site of the former embassy, dubbed the "den of spies" by the authorities who sponsor the annual commemoration, an AFP photographer reported.

This year's rally came just days before Tuesday's US presidential election in which Republican challenger Mitt Romney has made Iran's controversial nuclear programme a top foreign policy issue.

"The greatest threat the world faces is a nuclear Iran," Romney said in a campaign debate with Democratic incumbent Barack Obama.

Iran dismisses Western suspicions that its nuclear programme is cover for a drive for a weapons capability, insisting that it is for peaceful power generation and medical purposes only.

The anniversary of the November 4, 1979 embassy seizure, which saw Islamist students hold 52 US diplomats hostage for 444 days, is commemorated in Iran according to the Persian calendar and this year fell on November 2.

The hostage-taking, which came just months after the Islamic revolution overthrew the US-backed shah, was seen as a big factor in then US president Jimmy Carter's loss of the 1980 election.

Now painted with anti-US murals, the former embassy site is currently a training and educational facility controlled by Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards.
