Israel- United States Failing Relationship/How did Iran REALLY get Atomic Energy?
The United States and Israel seem to be getting a bit close to one another. Is it a bit too close for comfort? However, this closeness was torn apart according to some when recently, the Israeli Prime-Minster has come out and stated that the Israeli people will and should be able to defend Israel for itself and by itself. This shocking statement for the “conservatives” in the United States may leave them with a broken heart. However, this statement will bring Israel as one and make them understand the importance of National Defense and foreign relations with other surrounding nations.
In the case of Iran, the Israeli government, according to a few analysts, has already made it’s mind up on what it will be deciding to do if the Iranian government decides to go and create an atomic weapon. As it stands today, there is no evidence that shows that Iran is seriously thinking of presuming production of an atomic weapon. Iran is currently in a state of which is creating at most 20% atomic energy, which is perfectly legal on the international level (non-proliferation treaty).
Why is the United States afraid of this type of power generation? Don’t we realize that it was the United States who physically gave that region the ability to develop the energy? The Shah was planning to create a nation wide electric grid based on the atomic energy plans given by the United States. However, as everyone knows, the Iranian Revolution occurred, the Shah was gone, and tons of atomic equipment was left.
Something that the United States should currently be doing is removing arsenals, deals, treaties etc… that arm other nations with weapons that could be used against the United States in the future. Just imagine… What if the United States never gave that part of the world the ability to develop atomic energy? Would we still be in situation today?
