Iran May Be On The Brink...Nuclear Weapons in the hands of a Pyromaniac

I've been saying all along that I believed the continuing route of diplomacy/threats of sanctions with Iran has only served to further their nuclear preparations....namely....the production of an actual atomic weapon. The following article, from a verified Iranian source with a track record of being right, should serve as a wake up call. Somehow, I don't believe it will.

Maverick Iraqi Politician Claims Iran Could go Nuclear Within Weeks
Iraqi parliamentarian Mithal al-Alusi is warning that Iran is much closer to attaining nuclear capability than most sources, including the International Atomic Energy Agency and the US State Department, believe. In fact, he predicts the Iranians could have a nuclear capability - and may announce that they have it - as soon as next month.

"We are receiving information which says Iran is so close to producing an atom bomb," Alusi said in an interview earlier this month, the latest in a series of interviews conducted since September. "All the international community, they don't realize how close [the Iranians] are to the goal... The Iranians will surprise us one day [soon] and say, 'We have it.'"
Alusi said he cannot reveal his sources of this information, because that would place in grave and imminent danger individuals within the Iranian "establishment" who risked their lives to share it with him.
"I am talking about Iranian insider information. Very clear, from inside Iran," he said. "There are people within Iran who want to be normal... They know this is a dangerous regime. You see how they treat their own people... Iran is terrorizing the world already. What will they do once they have the bomb and they are stronger?"
Asked whether his sources are members of the Iranian government, or Iranian nuclear scientists, Alusi said he could not be more specific, but that they are "people who are part of the system in Iran, but [who] do know how dangerous it will be if the fascists are in control. They are wanting a normal situation to live, and they know this might be their last chance."
Alusi's estimate, which is that Iran will have nuclear capability by January or February, "sounds a little soon... [but] it's not outside the realm of possibility," according to Ilan Berman, vice president of the American Foreign Policy Council, who has consulted for the CIA and
According to Israeli intelligence, however, Iran already has sufficient low-enriched uranium for a nuclear weapon but has yet to reach the breakout stage and begin enriching uranium to higher levels, needed for a nuclear weapon. Even once this happens, it would take the Iranians some time to perfect the weapons program and manufacture a warhead. This would likely take a few years - until 2014, according to Mossad chief Meir Dagan.
An ideological pioneer, Alusi has frequently been ahead of the curve. Iraqi-born and bred, he fled to Germany in 1977 after being sentenced to death by Saddam Hussein for circulating anti-Ba'athist flyers. Following Saddam's ouster, he returned to Iraq with his two sons to accept a leadership position in the Supreme National Commission of de-Ba'athification.
In September 2004, he traveled to Israel to attend a counterterrorism conference. He did so because, in his words, he believes "Israel is a modern state and an important part of the Middle East."
Then, in February 2005, terrorist insurgents murdered his two sons, Ayman, 30, and Gamal, 22, apparently as payback for Alusi's visiting the Jewish state - a taboo in Iraqi society. Minutes after the attack, he told reporters, "Even if these terrorists try to kill me again... peace with Israel is the only solution for Iraq. Peace with everybody, but no peace for the terrorists."
Refusing to be intimidated, Alusi continued to build his political party, the Iraqi Democratic Nation Party, which his sons had helped him establish. In December 2005, voters elected him to parliament as an independent.
In early September 2009, before Iran announced the existence of a previously unknown uranium enrichment plant near the city of Qom, Alusi told this reporter there were other major Iranian nuclear sites in addition to the four known to the international community. Now he says that in addition to the five currently known, there are even more Iranian nuclear sites.
In September, he also told this reporter that Iranian scientists were working feverishly to develop "[the] missiles and atom bomb program together." Soon afterward, Iran began testing short-and medium-range missiles, as well as the Shihab-3, a long-range missile that can reach Israel.
Earlier this month he said, "I believe the atom bomb will be declared... by January, February, with a nuclear bomb and missiles [to launch it]."
Alusi believes Teheran's announcement in late November that it intends to build 10 new uranium enrichment sites is a ploy designed to mislead the West into thinking Iran is farther away than it actually is from attaining nuclear capability.
Alusi said that the Iranian government cannot be appeased by compromise or concession. He believes they are determined to assert their hegemony; hence their brazen missile-testing.
Asked whether he thinks a military operation to set back Iran's nuclear program will prompt a surge in terrorism, Alusi argued this reasoning is flawed. "The opposite is correct," he said. "If Iran has [nuclear capability], there will be more terror attacks... If [after it attains nuclear capability] there is any clash, hundreds of thousands will die, at least."
He emphasized that admittedly painful sacrifice in the short-term will avert a catastrophic scenario in the long-term.
"We will pay a price [with a limited military operation to set back Iran's nuclear program], but nothing compared to the price if Iran has this kind of weapon and … all the international community will be in danger."
While the Iranian government is belligerent, those at the helm of its war machine are clear in their motives, which include the determined desire to become a superpower, according to Alusi. "They have goals. They want DC to accept them as a superpower. You don't know them. We do," he said.
Although he says he is generally averse to war, he believes a military operation is the only option now, the sooner the better. For every month that elapses, the human and environmental costs of undertaking such an operation will be greater, Alusi cautioned.
"Why do international leaders wait?" he said. "To act now is best to save [the most] human beings. In several months, the danger of radioactivity to human beings and nature will be far worse."

Some ominous signs that something may happen soon:
1. Benjamin Netanyahu is sinking into a political quagmire after Israeli citizens were angered by his appeasement of Obama and the Palestinians. Simply put, they believe he caved on the West Bank settlement issue. They also believe he has dropped the ball on gaining the freedom of captured Israeli soldier, Galid Shalit. Hamas has demanded a prisoner swap...Galid for 100 terrorists being held in Israel. Fair or not, Israelis are making life for Netanyahu's coalition government somewhat uncomfortable.
2. Egypt has turned toward the Iranian camp and is working with Saudi Arabia to draft a UN Security Council Resolution that will declare a Palestinian State and a divided Jerusalem.
3. Arms continue to pour into southern Lebanon and the Gaza Strip...preparations for war are spoken outright.
4. Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Turkey, and Egypt are now aligned with Iran. Should Israel attack the nuclear facilities of the Iranians, these countries are bound by treaty to respond. (READ Psalm 83, Isaiah 17, Ezekiel 25, Obadiah 15-18)
5. America has gone off the map. The pitched battle between freedom and socialism has distracted the American public. Afghanistan is now the only military struggle in sight....most of the public not realizing that Israel is the key to absolutely everything.
6. President OBAMA is markedly anti-Israeli.
7. God seems to be moving the pieces at an ever-quickening pace. That can only mean time is running out on the nations of the world that are shaking their fists in his face. (READ Psalm 2)
For a while, I thought we might make it to January 1, 2010 without seeing the start of the Inner Ring War (See earlier posts), but now I'm not quite so sure. Keep your eyes locked on Scripture, your heart intertwined with the heart of God, and pray, pray, pray.
