The Geneva talks, also being called the P5 plus 1, were supposed to put a halt to any unauthorized enrichment of uranium. President Obama was telling the media that he would impose tougher sanctions if Iran did not cooperate and would demand that inspections of the previously undisclosed nuclear facility near Qom to be within 2 weeks. Before the talks, Obama stated, “We’re committed to serious and meaningful engagement, but we’re not interested in talking for the sake of talking. If Iran does not take steps in the near future to live up to its obligations, then the United States will not continue to negotiate indefinitely. And we are prepared to move towards increased pressure.”

One would take President Obama’s remarks as a warning to Iran that they must live up to the obligations set by previous UN agreements and to cooperate with the proposals in the Geneva talks. But that is not what happened. Obama’s administration spokesman, on the next day, took back the two week deadline and said there was no “hard and fast deadline,” and “we don’t have like a drop-dead date.” Which is just what the so-called UN Security Council decided on, giving Iran a date of October the 25th for the inspections to begin. This is plenty of time for them to “clean up” any suspicious activity in the hidden facility.

The supposed “deal” that was concluded from the Geneva talks was to send approximately one nuclear-weapon’s worth of Iran’s low enriched uranium (LEU) to Russia for enrichment to 19.75% and fabrication into fuel rods for Tehran’s research reactor. But an unnamed Iranian official said that this deal “is just based on principles. We have not agreed on any amount or any numbers.” Even if it is, this is undermining the UN’s Resolution 1696 which required Iran to “suspend all enrichment-related and reprocessing activities, including research and development.”

So Iran has already, numerous times, broken sanction resolutions and yet they find it okay to help them enrich the Uranium in Russia bringing it to just under the 20% definition of weapons-grade? The Obama administration is trying to say that after the uranium is fashioned into fuel rods that it cannot be enriched any further. But this is a lie, this is making it easier for Iran to make a nuclear weapon. As stated online in the Wall Street Journal:

“The 19.75% enriched uranium could be reconverted into uranium hexafluoride gas and quickly enriched to 90%. Iran could also “burn” its uranium fuel (including the Russian LEU available for the Bushehr reactor) and then chemically extract plutonium from the spent fuel to produce nuclear weapons.”

This is clearly not the direction that we were hoping the Geneva talks would be headed. But as we have seen repeatedly in the past 10 months, Obama cowtows to the foreign leaders and lets Iran leave the talks with a victory that will inevitably come back to haunt us. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is even boasting to the Iranian people that he has won without war and without sanctions. The bottom line is that the UN asked Iran not to enrich uranium and Obama and the UN Security Council has just given Iran the green light to go ahead an do it anyways even in light of the recent reveal of Iran having plans to build WMD and Russian scientists assisting with the program.

Just the other week at the United Nations Summit, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel condemned the UN for allowing an audience to a terrorist thug of a leader, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who also has openly denied the Holocaust and has repeatedly stated that Israel should be wiped off the face of the earth.  With the threat of developing nuclear weapons by Iran, Netanyahu pleaded the case for not only his people, but also for all those who choose to be on the right moral side of this issue.  To stand up and demand that the rest of the world do like wise and stop Iran from not only threatening Israel, but also the rest of the Western World.  After hearing his speech I was reminded of a bible verse; Zechariah 14:2 (NKJ) – For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem; the city shall be taken, the house rifled, and the women ravished. Half of the city shall go into captivity, but the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city. And also verse 14:3 (NKJ)- Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations as He fights in the day of battle. With this in mind, let us all pray for the safety of Israel and for our leaders to do what is right and morally just.

We have known for quite some time that Iran has been quite adamant on developing a nuclear program. One of these, the United Nations has been well aware and done numerous inspections. However, it has been discovered recently that Iran has a secret nuclear program that was unknown to the UN and violated the international agreements between Iran and the other UN countries. It was discovered that the hidden facility is 100 miles southwest of Tehran near the holy city of Qom in full operation and is capable of handling up to 3,000 centrifuges. President Obama stated, “This site deepens a growing concern that Iran is refusing to live up to those international responsibilities. This is not the first time that Iran has concealed information about its nuclear program.” So, clearly Iran is becoming more of a nuclear threat than has been previously led to believe.

On Friday, Obama demanded that Tehran immediately open the site to international inspections. Although, according to World Net Daily, President Obama knew about the hidden facility even before the G20 Summit in Pittsburgh, he did not mention it during his speech or meetings during that event. But, he was not surprised by all means. I have to say, I feel that Obama’s threat of tougher US sanction is a joke. We need the threat of taking Iran out to get things moving. Now, there is a meeting scheduled between Iran and the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council – the U.S., Britain, France, China and Russia – plus Germany is scheduled for Oct. 1 in Geneva. Whether or not that will be successful is now in deep question since the revelation of this hidden nuclear facility.

This is yet another reason why President Obama has no business weakening American military. It is clear that we have a very strong enemy presence and will need to be ready to take action if needed to defend our country or our allies. I wonder with the knowledge that Obama has if the weakening of the military is part of a bigger plan to join a possible “world order” as we saw a glimpse of in the speech given at the G20 Summit. We seem to be the only ones making ourselves easier to attack.

Here we go again, another enemy of the U.S. getting support from Russia to develop nuclear power. Except this time the country is much closer to our shores. Venezuela’s dictator, Hugo Chavez, said the other day that Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin agreed to help Venezuela’s nuclear energy program during a meeting in Moscow last week. Of coarse Chavez stated that their goal of nuclear power is just for peaceful purposes and not to build a bomb. Isn’t that what both North Korea and Iran said? With North Korea threatening a third nuclear explosion test and Iran having enough low-enriched uranium to produce one nuclear weapon, stated by a senior U.S. diplomat in The Washington Post, one could only wonder what would happen if Chavez could get his hands on that same kind of material. What would he do with it? He claims that it would be for peace energy purposes, but with his hatred for the U.S. and its’ allies in South America one could only assume that he would use such power to inflict his will on all the countries around the region.

Also, what in the world is Russia up to? For the past eight years Russia has done a lot of supporting most of the U.S.’s enemies around the world. Supplying them with weapons that could help them in defending their countries against American attack or voting against U.S. led UN sanctions in the Security Counsel against countries like Iran. Not to mention Russia patrolling with nuclear-powered attack subs off our eastern seaboard. Why do they need to do that, if we are supposed to have a good diplomatic relationship? Do they want to go back to the way things were during the Cold War? Or are they planning something more sinister? One can only wonder.

If you were not aware of what our country is doing to our economy this should give you a pretty good idea. We have in the past months been told by several nations to slow our spending, stop the stimulus money, stop the unnecessary programs, and other advice since the stimulus packages by President Bush and President Obama have been passed. The Obama administration is not taking heed to any advice though and just keeps on spending, keeps suggesting more government controlled programs that we don’t want and they can’t afford.

So, what do we get in return? The United Nations wanting to replace the US dollar (which is the current world’s reserve currency) and replace it with a new global currency. Is this good for the US, no, of course not. This could ultimately send us into an economic collapse in which we may never recover. But can you really blame them? Look at how carelessly Obama and the two Houses have been just freely spending money like it will never run out in order to fund the socialistic agenda. I saw a quote by Margaret Thatcher that reminds me of this, it said “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.” Obviously, from this article in the Telegraph, we can see that our global financiers are not going to be doing so much longer.

UPDATE 09/14/09:

Report from the International Monetary Fund stated, “…the international supply of two key reserve assets—gold and the U.S. dollar—proved inadequate for supporting the expansion of world trade and financial development that was taking place.”

World Net Daily’s Jerome Corsi comments, “If the plan succeeds, the United Nations would effectively end up replacing the United States as the issuer of the one-world international currency used as the standard of foreign exchange to settle international trade transactions,” Corsi wrote. “The move would obviate the need for any nation state in the future to be the arbiter of world trade, marking yet another blow to national sovereignty on the path to one-world government.”
