Iranian Nukes “Unacceptable” to U.S.

Just two months ago on Monday, December 19, 2011, while most of us were in the midst of the holidays and office parties, the United States Department of Defense released a public statement bombshell. Warning Americans that another radical Islamic conflict is fast approaching, Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, told Scott Pelley on the CBS Evening News that in less than a year Iran can have a nuclear bomb. The Secretary left little doubt as to what that means:

Pelley: So are you saying that Iran can have a nuclear weapon in 2012?

Panetta: It would probably be about a year before they can do it. Perhaps a little less. But one proviso, Scott, is if they have a hidden facility somewhere in Iran that may be enriching fuel.

Pelley: So that they can develop a weapon even more quickly…

Panetta: On a faster track….

Pelley: Than we believe….

Panetta: That’s correct.

Pelley: If the Israelis decide to launch a military strike to prevent that weapon from being built, what sort of complications does that raise for you?

Panetta: Well, we share the same common concern. The United States does not want Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. That’s a red line for us and that’s a red line, obviously, for the Israelis. If we have to do it we will deal with it.

Pelley: You just said if we have to do it we will come and do it. What is it?

Panetta: If they proceed and we get intelligence that they are proceeding with developing a nuclear weapon then we will take whatever steps necessary to stop it.

Pelley: Including military steps?

Panetta: There are no options off the table

Pelley: A nuclear weapon in Iran is…

Panetta: Unacceptable.

Why Iranian Nukes Are Unacceptable:

It’s unacceptable because the Iranian leader, Ayatollah Khomeini, called America the number one enemy of all mankind and Israel the number two enemy. Then, in 1981 he said, “Iran is at war with the United States.”

It’s unacceptable because in 2001 Former Iranian President Rafsanjani said he wanted to nuke our ally, Israel, bragging that the day Iran got nuclear weapons a nuclear bomb would explode on Israel leaving nothing.

It’s unacceptable because the current President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, said, “Israel must be wiped off from the map of the world, and … we shall soon experience a world without America and Zionism.”

It’s unacceptable because the Iranian President gleefully bragged that the Iranian people now possess nuclear technology and the world will tremble at what that means.

It’s unacceptable because Ahmadinejad boasted that Muslim rage would soon bring waves of explosions reaching America, Israel, and other nations.

It’s unacceptable for Iran to have nuclear weapons because for more than a decade their leaders have threatened the United States, Israel, and other nations with a pre-emptive nuclear strike.

Why America waited 40 Years:

Forty-one years ago Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini declared war against the United States. From 1981 until today the United States waited patiently for Iran to renounce the declaration. During those years we hoped Iran would come to her senses, but to no avail. Things have continually gone from bad to worse. Our Iranian enemy said we waited out of weakness. Never! We waited from strength.

The United States Navy has 18 Ohio Class Trident nuclear missile submarines (SSBN’s) on active duty patrolling the world this very day. They are specifically designed to approach by stealth and shower an enemy with multiple nuclear warheads with absolutely no warning. They submerge and don’t surface for their entire cruise making them undetectable by an enemy. They travel submerged at 25 knots (30mph) 800 feet beneath the ocean’s surface with refueling necessary once every twenty years.

Each sub has twenty-four Trident II Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. Launched in stealth from underwater, each of these solid fuel rockets is expected to have a fight time of just 12 to 24 minutes and could hit targets up to 6,000 miles away within an accuracy space of 10 yards. At least one submarine is within range of Iran at this moment.

One sub launched missile packs 8 independent 475-kiloton nuclear warheads. When detonated, the 300,000 degree fireball from each warhead is three miles wide sustaining temperatures over 15,000 degrees. Within three seconds after detonation 165 mph winds blast outward creating 64 square miles of destruction from a single warhead. Since each missile has eight such warheads, using overlapping deployment technique, a total nuclear blast area melts 500 square miles with each missile.

The multiple warheads of one missile from a trident submarine can completely destroy both the Iranian cities of Tehran and Mashhad in less than thirty minutes from right now. Am I making myself clear?

All twenty-four missiles on any one trident submarine can be launched within fifteen minutes and reach their targets in a half hour. In other words, each trident submarine has the capability of delivering 192 overlapping nuclear explosions within less than an hour anywhere in the world creating a destructive nuclear blast area of 12,000 square miles. The payload from one Trident submarine will obliterate Iran in thirty minutes. And since the U.S.A. has 18 SSBN’s we could unload more subs if necessary on anybody who might object.

We know that today, Iran seeks nuclear weapons to launch strikes against Israel and the United States. In contrast, twenty four hours a day and seven days a week for over forty years since Khomeini declared war on us, the United States Navy has possessed the ability to approach with stealth and shower the entire Iranian Civilization and her allies with nuclear destruction the temperature of the sun within any hour of any day…no warning. They live today because we hoped never to harm them… that time has passed.

Iran’s Time is up:

The first responsibility of The President of The United States is the protection of the American people and the homeland. Nothing else compares to that. In a matter of weeks Iran will have a nuclear bomb and they are already bragging about using it on us. If they do, we need take no caution to protect any Iranian from our harshest response.

I can’t imagine the Iranian people want to risk such a tragedy. Perhaps we should find a way to remind President Ahmadinejad of the consequences of a nuclear strike against us. Who knows? Perhaps there is a chance he could stop believing his own foolish posturing. America is by no means weak; instead we are armed to the teeth yet strong willed enough to restrain ourselves.

Tragically though, Ahmadinejad still believes nuclear war is to Islam’s advantage. Calling America a paper tiger, he said that Allah wills Islam to conquer the world and destroy America and Israel.

So, given the Islamo-fascist agenda for world conquest and chaos, the way I see it America has three choices:

1. We can cowardly abandon our ally, Israel.
2. We can wait to see if Iran fulfills her threats and launches a nuclear strike that will cost a million dead American and Israeli citizens.
3. We can strike first.
