A nuclear glossary (with an Iranian connection)

Filed under: General Homeland Security — by Arnold Bogis on August 27, 2012

Just for the information of those readers interested in nuclear topics.

A former former deputy director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency and a nonproliferation expert have published an online glossary to help sort out many of the terms being thrown about during the debate about what to do about Iran’s nuclear program. The product: “Nuclear Iran: A Glossary.”

At a time of hot debate over possible military action against Iran’s nuclear program, the need for a clear understanding of the issues and the controversial science and technology behind them has never been more acute.

Toward that end, scholars from the Washington Institute for Near East Policy and Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs have copublished an interactive online glossary of terms used in the discussion about Iran. The report was prepared by proliferation expert Simon Henderson and Olli Heinonen, former deputy director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Covering the jargon and history behind IAEA inspections, centrifuge enrichment, basic nuclear physics, and early nuclear weapons development in Pakistan and the United States, the glossary provides an indispensable guide to an increasingly complex problem.

In case you’re wondering, I am not paid anything by the Belfer Center for sharing such information.  I just thought others might be interested.

Though perhaps I should ask…

RE “Nuclear Iran: A Glossary”

We very appreciate any such information which can be shared for while both US political parties hammer one another and the budget deficit climbs and unemployment continues to show no signs of significant improvement and in fact, millions of foreclosed homes and a double dip recession if not worse are becoming ever so clearer in our crystal ball as supported by the reality here on “Main Street USA” –

Iran and Syria are foremost on the global agenda and certainly far more trecherous than even the manner in which these two US political parties are so manipulative in supposedly drawing our attention to candidate’s taxes and birth certificate as We here on “Main Street USA” will most assuredly cast our vote for change as this political and economic mess worsens….every seven (7) seconds an individual turns sixty (60) years of age and the majority with homes no longer offering value and having less than $25k saved…frightening, yet not as frightening as We look to Iran and Syria and the lack of few understanding the meaage handed to us via Psalm 83 as to events now unfolding.

German-Foriegn-Policy.com on 16th April noted that a senior German government adviser clearly sees that ‘german participation should be assured.” Well, some say that Germany did not choose to get involved in Libya, however with a more entrenched global strategy and a strong and emerging military force with fast deployment Army, German’s interest is to develop an axis of Middle eastern countries who oppose Iran. Interesting…question is, does anyone at the State Department here truly understand the dynamics other than peering at their Ivy League diplomas?

Geopolitics for the Berlin gang…theu could give a care for the dastardly deeds taking place against innocent civilian.

The product: “Nuclear Iran: A Glossary” very important reference, however also this split in relations between Irana nd Syria and the Germans stepping in to fill the vaccum left by these “beltway bandits” self-absorbed and having no clue as to aggressive stance Germany is already making with respect to strategic interests in the Middle East with of course the ever powerful and corrupt Vatican at its shoulder…well, it is time to hold a Bible meeting at the State department and for all to truly understand Psalm 83 and the of course, Daniel 11:40, none taught as part of the Ivy League required curriculum.

Read the prophecy: “Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. For, lo, thine enemies make a timult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hiddlenones (verses 103) –

“Crafty counsel against God’s people” – also, to you scholars at State, what do you understand of this – plot – against God’s “hidden ones” – spiritual Israel and yes….beware oh Israel….of Germany once again as in history and to the “Brutes of Iran” you, too beware of Germany for your days are few and it will Not be We America or even Israel who will use their power, Germany shall and beware you who profess from your besmirched Iranian pulpit, for You shall be shocked that Lebanon and even Hezbollah will no longer support Iran and as We see German war ships off the coast of lebanon, so too does Hezbollah and the infamous Hawk! The Phillistines are very much a part of Tyre in southern Lebanon and the Phillistines of Gza even and even those in the West Bank will align themselves w/Germany and while the world will be shocked by such events, my question is while the product: “Nuclear Iran: A Glossary” is much appreciated in making us cognizant of such information…where are the Biblical refernces which clearly foretell just how our foriegn policy should be established with vision somehow lost among the politics and the failure to understand the importancfe in our Judeo-Christian values which so many from this WH across the Congressional aisle have not a clue and have failed to stand forthright for our nation’s principles and values.

Read w/interest the “Nuclear Iran: A Glossary” and certainly watch Germany, the German Pope and the coming instability in the Middle East and Turkey who will also support Germany for it is saddened by what Iran is doing inside Syria t the moment…Read the “Merkel Docrine” after reading, “Nuclear Iran: A Glossary” – and you will painly see German’s leveraging weapons exports – 200 + Leopard tanks to Qatar (soon to be approved by the German Federal Security Council) and 600-800 same for Saudi Arabia other that you at State well know and with these arns sales, surely profit, yet influence….a building alliance which will stand tall against Iran, the same Iranians the Rev Wright public confessed that it too, has a Right to Nuclear Weapons…such hatred towards the Hebrew..correct Barry and the Chicago-Hollywood-Washington express?

Who at State – Mrs. Clinton? Hello, is anyone awake in “Sleepy Hollow” for dramatic shifts in Middle east alliances are happening Now and somehow the US so broken by these corrupted bureaucrats who prefer affroding us history lessons on US Slavery and continuing to convey devisive intent when WE must demand – leadership – astute and much aligned with Judeo-Christian values and attentively listening along with the patriotic and wonderful folks at the NSA who hear Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh public reject Assad and Iran when he visited Egypt stating: “I salute all the nations of the Arab Spring and I salute the heroic People of Syria who are striving for freedom, democracy and reform”

At State, when youbsee Hamas move its politburo in exile from Syria to Qatar and Khaled Meshal holds direct talks with both Egyptians and Turkish Prime Minister and We here on “Main Street USA” clearly see a new relationship between Hamas and Jordan…this evident movement which Hamas is taking away from Iran and do you at State have a clue as to what is occuring as this Syrian conflict and its Biblical reference portrays a Hezbollah and the People of lebanon turning their cheek away from Iran as well…

Like the information one gathers from referencing the product: “Nuclear Iran; A glossary” – following the same pattern as the 1930’s much like TS Issac has followed Katrin’a route, the failure of asuterity policies in the EU are certain as Hank Paulsen’s and “Mr. Barney’s” as well as “Smug-smiled Pelosi” insensitivities and languishing policies will be our demise as our beloved Republic has been so weakened, however We the People can only be fooled some of the time….

God Bless America!
