cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

Iran may consider withdrawing from NPT

OH LOOK DIPLOMACY IS FAILING JUST AS PREDICTED BY HILARY CLINTON ET AL BECAUSE THE VERY "SMART" AND "PEACEFUL" LEADERS OF "THE WEST" ARE TOO FUCKING OBTUSE TO UNDERSTAND A SIMPLE THING. SHALOM. - ED.

A senior Iranian lawmaker says Iran may consider withdrawing from the NPT if the Western powers continue to pressure the Islamic Republic to relinquish its inalienable right to enrich uranium to produce nuclear fuel.

“If the P5+1 continues to talk with us with the language of force to push us into a corner, and to talk about more sanctions, there might be no choice but to step out of the talks,” MP Hassan Ghafourifard told Press TV in an exclusive interview on Tuesday.

“Our patience has a limit. We have been discussing this problem for the three to four years and they have always asked Iran to stop enrichment,” he added.

The Iranian parliamentarian stated that Iran will not suspend its uranium enrichment program “under any condition.”

"For the first step, we may step out of talks with the P5+1. If things go from bad to worse, then we might take more action on that... like withdrawing from the NPT (nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty)," Ghafourifard said.

“If they don't want to understand the position, which is the position of peaceful enrichment of uranium, then there might be no use to stay in the NPT,” he added.
