Topic: Iran's nuclear program
WASHINGTON, January 25 (RIA Novosti)

The United States will use all available options to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, President Barack Obama said in his State of the Union address on Tuesday.
“Let there be no doubt: America is determined to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, and I will take no options off the table to achieve that goal,” Obama said.
“The [Tehran] regime is more isolated than ever before; its leaders are faced with crippling sanctions, and as long as they shirk their responsibilities, this pressure will not relent,” he added.
At the same time, the U.S. president reiterated that a peaceful way of resolving the Iran nuclear issue remained a priority.
“A peaceful resolution of this issue is still possible, and far better, and if Iran changes course and meets its obligations, it can rejoin the community of nations,” Obama said.
Western nations suspect Iran, which is already under four sets of UN Security Council sanctions, of pursuing a secret nuclear weapons program but Tehran insists it needs nuclear power solely for civilian purposes.
Tensions over Iran's nuclear activities have reached a boiling point since the Islamic Republic has announced that it had launched a nuclear enrichment program at a well-protected underground facility near the city of Qom.
Tehran has threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz, a strategic waterway where an estimated 40 percent of the world's seaborne oil passes, in response to a Western embargo on Iranian oil imports.

Reading between the lines.
Under absolutely no circumstances will the United States allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons technology.
As many nations now know the United States is running out of its domestic oil supplies. At current production levels of 9 million barrels of oil a day the domestic oil reserves of the United States run out in 2019. The United States reached its Peak Oil production in1970.
Current oil consumption in the United States is 18.7 million barrels of oil a day.
Of this amount the United States needs to import 9.7 million barrels of oil a day.
By the year 2020 the amount of oil the United States will need to import will grow from 9.7 million barrels of oil a day to 20 million barrels of oil a day, an increase of 11.3 million barrels of oil.
This oil is going to have to come from somewhere.
The two most likely locations for new oil exports to the United States are Iran and Russia.
It is COMPLETELY unacceptable to the United States government that Iran be allowed to develop deterrent nuclear weapons technology to stop a planned United States, European and NATO invasion to seize Iran's oil and natural gas oil reserves!
Nuclear deterrent weapons technology simply makes it too dangerous for the United States, Israel, Europe and NATO forces to attack, invade and occupy Iran.
Therefore the United States will do everything in its power to destroy any nuclear ambitions Iran might have. This will greatly facilitate an attack, invasion and occupation of Iran to seize its oil and natural gas reserves.
Once the Iranian people have been liberated from their tyrannical government and clerics (which may cost 100,000 to 200,000 civilian lives) the United States will bring in new and modern pumping technology to better develop and exploit Iran's oil and natural gas fields. Everyone in the United States will benefit! The world will benefit from having a stronger and more resilient United States government. An invincible government that dominates the world!
The Iranian people will also benefit with a new and modern western culture.
One only has to look at Iraq and Afghanistan to see what a bright future the Iranian people have.
US Air force bases will be set up in Iran for the next phase of Operation Freedom 2020. This is the complete control of the Caspian Basin oil fields.
Presently the United States, Europe and NATO are setting up a European Missile Defence Shield. At the present time the excuse for this European Missile Defence Shield is to protect Europe and Russia from Iranian missiles.
However its real purpose is to destroy Russian military capability around the Caspian Basin oil and natural gas fields.
It is in the BEST INTERESTS of the United States government to control all of the oil and natural gas reserves around the Caspian Basin area. No one appreciates the benefits of oil more than the United States. A strong United States economy benefits the entire world.
Iran is just the first step in our “Operation Freedom 2020” to dominate and control the Caspian Basin area oil and natural gas reserves.
The second part of “Operation Freedom 2020” is to destroy Russian military capability around the Caspian Basin area and seize control of the Russian oil and natural gas reserves. To this end the European Missile Defence Shield has been put into place.
To ensure the United States does NOT break any legally binding international documents, the United States will NOT promise the Russian government that it will not use the European Missile Defence Shield against Russian military assets.
“Operation Freedom 2020” thus begins with an immediate plan of action to eliminate the threat of Iran developing nuclear weapons technology. Nuclear weapons technology that would be a serious deterrent to a United States, Israel, Europe and NATO attack, invasion and occupation of Iran to seize control of their oil and natural gas reserves.
The United States needs to secure Iranian oil and natural gas reserves as soon as feasibly possible.
Beginning in the year 2020 and probably much before the United States will need to increase oil imports by 11.3 million barrels of oil a day, to a total of 20 million barrels of oil a day.
This is the whole point of “Operation Freedom 2020”.
Reading between the lines.
This is what American President Barack Obama is really saying.
Therefore it is in the best interests of China, India and Russia to defend Iran from an attack by the United States, Europe, and NATO if they want to keep their oil supplies.
- Whizkid4In reply to Arnold Vinette19:39, 25/01/2012@Arnold Vinette from Canada. I thoroughly enjoyed your "between the lines" analysis of the Obama speech. My favourite part was your thought on Russia. It's so funny how deeply deceived and uninformed most North Americans (US & Canada) are about the dynamics of world power. The way you painted an easy picture of Russia as a country that the US and Europe could easily step over and occupier its oil, made me laugh my stomach to pain. Imagine the "small" military progress that China is making and see how much fear it's causing in Western military circles. How much more Russia!!
Look, let new tell you, NO BODY IS ATTACKING RUSSIA. Even the American military will never dream of doing so. Pure suicide. It will be M.A.D = Mutual Assured Destruction.
How could they possibly pull or off? European missile shield used against Russia? Sorry. What happens to Russia's Tupolev bombers? Akula submarines? Topol-Ms? SS-18 Satans? Su-35s? S-500 air defense systems? I'm even tired of writing this!
My only advise to you, my friend are:
1. Stop swallowing the daily propaganda and switch off FOX news and CNN and the likes.
2. Pick up some good books and read!!
In case you don't know, Russia has the most powerful missiles in the world. That's ONE. Russia has the most reliable Ballistic Missile Defence System in the world. That's TWO.
The American economic advantage is it's greatest weapon/advantage over Russia in war. Both countries have great respect for each other's capabilities that's why they're the two most powerful nations on the planet. But while one is busy maintaining its front yard and tending its gardens, the other one seems to be having a really good time flexing its muscles all around town---especially to the ladies!!
In a new cold war, America wins.
One missile gets fired though, Russia wins.

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
