CSRI Welcomes the Warnings by President Bush about
Iran’s Nuclear Weapons Plan
Yesterday President George W. Bush told newspaper editors in
Washington that Iran "will be dealt with, starting through the United
Nations" if it does not stop developing nuclear weapons and begin total
cooperation with international inspectors.
The investigations by International Atomic Energy Agency has shown
astonishing evidence that Iran had been deceiving the World for 18 years
and that Iran’s nuclear technology was far more advanced than what the
international community believed.
According to the intelligence gathered by Iranian opposition, Iran will
make its first atomic bomb in 2005. Although Iran signed the non-
proliferation treaty under international pressure, the documents presented
by Iran to the IAEA, proved to be incomplete and deceitful. Although Iran
claimed that it needed nuclear power plants for non-military reasons,
traces of enriched Uranium, used in nuclear weapons, were found in
centrifuges in Iran. Later it was disclosed that IAEA inspectors were not
allowed to inspect certain cites and the Iranian officials claimed that
joining the non-proliferation treaty is nothing more than a gesture and has
no practical meaning for Iran. This led the IAEA to give Iran another
ultimatum to reveal its nuclear plans and cooperate with the inspectors.
Iran’s actions are clear evidence that Iran has not and will not cooperate
with the international community about its nuclear plans. To let the
government of Iran to achieve nuclear weapons, will be a mistake with
catastrophic dimensions. The appeasement policy led by European
government towards Iran, has only helped rulers in Tehran to kill more
time. Iran must be held responsible “now”, before it is too late.
CSRI welcomes the firm stand of President George W. Bush against Iran’s
nuclear weapons policy. CSRI asks the world and in particular the
