Iran's Nuclear Aspirations After Japan Quake

    The regime in Iran continues to lie to tell the world that their nuclear research is only meant for peaceful purposes, such as making electricity, and not for making an atomic bomb. I wonder if now that it has been shown that even a first world country like Japan with all of its technology could not stop the disaster that is happening there if the government of Iran will back off from that.

    After the tragedy at Chernobyl there was general consensus that the USSR was a backward society and those reactors were a ticking bomb, designed by idiots, waiting to blow up; just like it did. Nothing even remotely like that could possibly happen here, they told us. Well it is happening.

    Does anyone here know if there has been more pressure from inside Iran on the government to abandon their nuclear ambitions because of this? Do you think we can expect any?

    This earthquake will probably convince Iran that nuclear reactors are dangerous and that nuclear weapons are much safer to produce and own.

    Recipe for disaster.

    So what did Ahmadinejad actually say? To quote his exact words in farsi:

    "Imam ghoft een rezhim-e ishghalgar-e qods bayad az safheh-ye ruzgar mahv shavad."

    That passage will mean nothing to most people, but one word might ring a bell: rezhim-e. It is the word "Regime", pronounced just like the English word with an extra "eh" sound at the end. Ahmadinejad did not refer to Israel the country or Israel the land mass, but the Israeli regime. This is a vastly significant distinction, as one cannot wipe a regime off the map. Ahmadinejad does not even refer to Israel by name, he instead uses the specific phrase "rezhim-e ishghalgar-e qods" (regime occupying Jerusalem).

    So this raises the question.. what exactly did he want "wiped from the map"? The answer is: nothing. That's because the word "map" was never used. The Persian word for map, "nagsheh", is not contained anywhere in his original farsi quote, or, for that matter, anywhere in his entire speech. Nor was the western phrase "wipe out" ever said. Yet we are led to believe that Iran's President threatened to "wipe Israel off the map", despite never having uttered the words "map", "wipe out" or even "Israel".


    The full quote translated directly to English:

    "The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time".

    Word by word translation:

    Imam (Khomeini) ghoft (said) een (this) rezhim-e (regime) ishghalgar-e (occupying) qods (Jerusalem) bayad (must) az safheh-ye ruzgar (from page of time) mahv shavad (vanish from).
  7. La central nuclear iraní de Bushehr será lanzada en agosto

    La central nuclear iraní de Bushehr, construida por especialistas rusos, será puesta en marcha en agosto, declaró hoy el viceministro de Asuntos Exteriores de Rusia, Serguei Riabkov.
    "El proyecto está terminado y la planta deberá ser lanzada a primeros de agosto, lo que responde a las expectativas de ambas partes. Si esto ocurre unos días más tarde, no pasa nada. Lo importante es que la obra ya está terminada", subrayó.
    Señaló que el lanzamiento de la central hará fortalecer el régimen de no proliferación nuclear. "El proyecto de Bushehr contribuirá al fortalecimiento del régimen de no proliferación de armas nucleares", apuntó.
