Given what we know or should know by this time, we would be foolish not to take Iran’s claims and threats with utmost seriousness. Everything points to a dangerous rogue regime intent on establishing its hegemony in the Middle East, working assiduously against Western interests, and unafraid to unleash real devastation upon the world. Russian strategist Major-General Vladimir Dvorkin, head of the Moscow-based Center for Strategic Nuclear Forces, believes that in the near future Iran “will most likely be able to threaten the whole of Europe.” Articles 19 and 20 of the IAEA Board of Governors Report for November 19, 2008, are unambiguous and are still as pertinent today as they were two years ago:

19. Regrettably, as a result of the lack of cooperation by Iran in connection with the alleged studies and other associated key remaining issues of serious concern, the Agency has not been able to make substantive progress on these issues. … Unless Iran provides such transparency, and implements the Additional Protocol, the Agency will not be able to provide credible assurance about the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran.

20. Contrary to the decisions of the Security Council, Iran has not suspended its enrichment related activities, having continued the operation of PFEP and FEP and the installation of new cascades and the operation of new generation centrifuges for test purposes. … [Note: FEP=Fuel Enrichment Plant; PFEP =Pilot Fuel Enrichment Plant.]

The report, incidentally, made nonsense of the statement regarding Iran’s nuclear intentions that the newly elected head of the IAEA, Yukiya Amano, gave to Reuters news agency on July 3, 2009: “I don’t see any evidence in IAEA official documents about this.” One may speculate where in the solar system Mr. Amano resides — perhaps on one of those idyllic, vegan worlds we recall from first generation Star Trek episodes. We recall too that several of these worlds were duly obliterated.
